Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $100,650)
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 Idaho State Police and the Idaho courts system will continue collaboration to design a system to address the timely submission and retrieval of warrants and protection order information for law enforcement use.
Funds are being requested for the design, development, programming, installation, testing, and training costs associated with the creation of a data exchange to transfer records from the courts to the state repository, then to the FBI for inclusion in NCIC, if necessary.
Additionally, funds will be used for programming support to correct errors in the transmission of modified court dispositions to the state repository. This will ensure the disposition listed in the record is the latest issued by the court.
