Byrne JAG funds support Criminal Justice Information System improvement projects including New Jersey’s Computerized Criminal History expunged record access and information upgrade. In New Jersey, new legislative mandates led to an increase in the number of Expunged Final Orders processed annually. The project is intended to make expunged criminal history record information available to New Jersey’s criminal justice agencies in real time.
