NICS and State Firearms Authorities - Warrant Information
Summary:The court’s central computer system, or the Paperless Re-arrest Warrant Network (PRAWN), is designed to facilitate the service of warrants by disseminating the warrant information to all law enforcement agencies within the state, and enabling any law enforcement agency to serve any warrant without first tracking down the paper warrant. 

Automating the entry of warrant information on offenders who are fugitives from justice into the NICS will expand the array of persons who are prohibited from having firearms.
 

To facilitate the dissemination of re-arrest warrant information to the NICS, and the direct transmission of re-arrest warrant data to the Connecticut Department of Public Safety’s (DPS) firearms unit (SLFU), the following work will be carried out with respect to the PRAWN System in the Judicial Branch:
  (1) Further program PRAWN to identify cases with active warrants that meet the federal firearms disqualification guidelines; (2) Further program the Judicial interface with the SLFU database to accommodate re-arrest warrant data; (3) Develop a method of reporting re-arrest warrant data and status information to NICS.

COLLECT Upgrade - Subject Matter Expert (SME)
Summary:To continue the replacement of the Connecticut On-Line Law Enforcement Communication Teleprocessing (COLLECT) system,  this project will provide subject matter expert services necessary to convert the data in the current system to one that is NCIC 2000 compliant and provides for necessary security. 

The COLLECT system is a statewide computer system that is dedicated to the law enforcement and criminal justice agencies in Connecticut.
  The COLLECT system stores information on the following files:  stolen vehicles , stolen and lost license plates,  wanted persons, missing persons, supervised persons, protective orders, lost/stolen/recovered guns, articles, and securities as well as in-state criminal history records.  COLLECT serves as  gateway to two National systems: 
the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and the International Justice and Public Safety Network (otherwise know as Nlets).

The information stored in COLLECT is used by more than 15,000 law enforcement personnel at more than 200 agencies throughout the State of Connecticut.
  COLLECT system users rely on the data contained in COLLECT to make critical law enforcement and criminal justice decisions.

Title:
Connecticut Criminal History (CCH) - Fingerprint Backlog Records Update
Summary:Connecticut has a backlog of 124,100 fingerprint cards and live scan sheets for which criminal history data on offenders is not included in the criminal history repository.  Contractual services for entering the data from the fingerprint cards into the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) are required to update the Master Name Index/Computerized Criminal History (MNI/CCH), which is integral to the criminal history repository.

The project will involve scanning 119,900 fingerprint cards, the data from which will be added to the DPS AFIS database. The work will also involve the data entry and connecting of 4,200 live scan sheets of data associated with a scanned fingerprint card for which the arrest data are separately provided, to create new or updated criminal history records for the existing MNI/CCH.
  The scanning and processing of the fingerprint cards will be a priority.

FY 2008 NCHIP Stalking and Domestic Violence Records Improvement Program (SDVRIP)


The goal of the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, SDVRIP grant program is to improve processes for entering data regarding stalking and domestic violence into local, State, and national crime information databases.

Title:
Order Registry - Protection Orders Bail and Probation Automation Project
Summary:Bail and Adult Probation presently supervise more than 14,000 persons year who are subject to “no contact orders”; many of these no contact orders are issued in domestic violence and stalking cases.  Four critical information systems can presently accommodate no contact orders, but each system requires a separate, manual entry for each order because the systems do not interface with each other.  The four systems are the Bail/Probation Case Management information System (CMIS), the Protection Order Registry (POR), the state and national protection order files (COLLECT and NCIC), and the Offender Based Tracking System (OBTS). 

The key activity is to develop an interface between the Judicial Branch’s Bail/Probation System (in the Judicial Branch’s, Offender Case Management Information System (CMIS) and the Judicial Branch’s Protection Order Registry (POR) so no contact orders will be initiated in CMIS then automatically transmitted through POR to user query systems and repositories, e.g., the OBTS, COLLECT and NCIC.

Title:
Order Registry - Protection Order Related Warrant Data Transmission
Summary:This project will automate an interface between the courts and local law enforcement agencies with regard to protection orders, and warrants maintained by the courts.  This interface will improve the integrity of data within the law enforcement agencies, and it will foster the dissemination of data on a more real time basis.  It will enable electronic notifications to specialized units within each agency, including domestic violence units, firearms regulatory units, and warrant units.  The law enforcement agencies may then enter warrant information in the NCIC wanted person file in accordance with the current state protocol; the respective agency associated with the warrant is responsible for maintaining the warrant in the national warrants database. The POR, however, will automatically update state and national protection order files to indicate that a warrant has been issued. 

There are four key activities:
  1)  to reprogram POR to transmit protection order data to local law enforcement agencies, or enable the local agencies to download the data if necessary, 2) to enable the POR to process active warrant events and update COLLECT and NCIC protection order records accordingly, 3)  develop standards and the technological infrastructure that enable independent law enforcement agencies to receive or import data from the POR, and 4) develop an interface that enables law enforcement agencies to receive data from POR.
