Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $1,364,852)

The Missouri Department of Public Safety, through the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP), will use FY22 NCHIP funds for the following projects: The Office of State Courts Administrator (OSCA) will use funds towards enhancements to its statewide court case management system (Show-Me Courts).  The enhancements are to develop case management processes for circuit-level criminal cases. The MSHP’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division (CJIS) will use funds for 6 projects: 1) Email Encryption Technology - CJIS serves as the Central Repository for the state of Missouri and email encryption allows staff to securely work with partner agencies through a portal that meets the FBI’s Security protocol; 2) Batch Card Scanner - the purchase of a batch card scanner will enable CJIS to rapidly scan 50 mailed in hard copy fingerprint cards at a time and send them to AFIS, rather than manually scanning them one-by-one, per the current process; 3) AFIS Workstations - CJIS will purchase two additional AFIS workstations to place at one of its AFIS remote sites: the St. Louis County Police Department Fingerprint Unit (SLC), to help reduce agency backlog; 4) Legal case management/tracking software; 5) Web Application Firewall (WAF) - the WAF will monitor web application traffic and screen out malicious attacks on Missouri’s criminal history system; and 6) Criminal History Overtime - continued work on criminal history overtime project will increase criminal history completeness and decrease the incidents of a delayed response to a NICS request.
