Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $84,691)

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 New Hampshire Department of Justice will use NCHIP funds to improve the reporting, completeness, and availability of restraining/protection orders. Funding will support review and data input work at the New Hampshire Administrative Office of the Courts to ensure that domestic violence and stalking restraining orders are entered into State's criminal justice information system and forwarded to the FBI's National Crime Information Center.
