Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $117,000)

The goal of the National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP) is to improve the Nation's safety and security by enhancing the quality, completeness, and accessibility of criminal history record information and by insuring the nationwide implementation of criminal justice and non-criminal justice background check systems. BJS provides direct financial and technical assistance to the States to improve criminal history and other related records and to build their infrastructure to connect to national record check systems both to supply information and to conduct the requisite checks.

Under this award, the Arkansas Crime information Center (ACIC) will transfer funds to the Administrative Office of the Courts to complete a court project that will allow the automatic transmission of case dispositions to ACIC. Modifications will be made to the State's current file system which will automatically populate the criminal history repository with correct and timely disposition information and data from the new court system.
