Reference and statistics – Use and Management of Criminal History Record Information: A Comprehensive Report, 2001 Update – Brief Article
The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) presents Use and Management of Criminal History Record Information: A Comprehensive Report, 2001 Update, which discusses in nontechnical terms the complex, interrelated network of local, state, and federal information systems that provide criminal history records to both criminal justice and noncriminal justice users. This report is an update of a report first published in 1993, which was the first descriptive review of the nation’s criminal history information systems. This 2001 update reflects changes in the handling of criminal history records that occurred during the 1990s as a result of policy developments, societal changes, technological advances, and other factors. In all, six comprehensive chapters review how criminal history record information is used and managed. This report is available electronically at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/abstract/umchri01.htm or by contacting the National Criminal Justice Reference Service at 800-851-3420.
