CJPPD Monthly Report on Arrest Warrants


Pursuant to Public Act 06-99, the number of outstanding arrest warrants for, "failure to appear" in criminal and motor vehicle proceedings and outstanding arrest warrants for violation of probation proceedings for persons residing in or who provided an address in your municipality at the time of their original arrest are now posted on the Office of Policy and Management website at https://www.ct.gov/opm/cjis/rearrdata.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The State of Connecticut will no longer be mailing hardcopies of these reports to your offices.


CJPPD Grants Portal


The Criminal Justice Policy and Planning Division (CJPPD) is developing a web-enabled portal to service the grants administered by the Division.  CJPPD successfully deployed a prototype of a grants portal to distribute $4.2 million of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) “stimulus” funds to 159 municipalities in Connecticut. Learning from this prototype, CJPPD plans to provide a single approach and tool for its customers, and to significantly reduce time, labor and the paper-intensive process for everyone involved.  An operational version is planned to be implemented by December 2012. See CJPPD Grants Portal Status
