Abstract: Under the State Statistical Analysis Centers program, a new effort will be initiated to assist States in the establishment of a national infrastructure to promote the collection of common criminal justice statistical data among the States and the development of an electronic data-sharing mechanism to be used by the States and the Federal Government. The Criminal History Record Improvement Program is designed to assist States in the improvement of the accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of criminal history record information maintained by State central repositories. The Criminal Justice Information Policy program is designed to assist States in upgrading the quality of State criminal history record systems and in addressing the issues that ensure the utility of criminal history records for both criminal and noncriminal justice purposes. To further promote the operational significance of incident-based reporting, the Bureau of Justice Statistics will fund several local law enforcement agencies in the demonstration and documentation of the utility of incident-based reporting to the law enforcement and criminal justice community. Another project will initiate data collections and analyses related to selected civil justice topics; and another will establish a fellowship program designed to promote criminal justice and related statistical research among the academic and professional justice communities to meet the needs of the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
