Records and Information Processing

Public safety and criminal justice decisions are made daily based on criminal records and criminal justice information. Recordkeeping and information processing are integral parts of the criminal justice process. Vital resources have been allocated at federal, state and local levels to improve records accuracy, timeliness, completeness and accessibility.

Under the authority of the Commission, the Criminal Justice Systems Improvement unit facilitates records improvement activities in accordance with regulatory statutes. In addition, efforts are coordinated with those of the Policy and Technical Teams of the Executive Steering Committee for Integration.
