Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2013, $250,004)

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 noncriminal 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 Hawaii Department of the Attorney General plans to: (1) implement an information exchange between the Hawaii Integrated Justice Information Sharing program and the Judicial Information Management System; (2) implement an information exchange between prosecutor case management systems and the Judiciary to allow prosecutors the ability to electronically send information from their case management systems to the Judiciary; and, (3) fund the position of a validation clerk to submit historical temporary restraining orders and protection orders to the NCIC Protection Order File, and to perform audits and validation tasks.
