Criminal Intelligence Systems Operating Policies
Document Number: E8-17519
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-07-31
Agency: Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Justice Programs Office
The Office of Justice Programs is publishing this proposed rule to amend its regulations that govern the operating policies of criminal intelligence systems that receive federal funding under the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, as amended (``Crime Control Act''). The regulations were issued pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 3789(g), which requires that ``criminal intelligence systems'' receiving Crime Control Act support must collect, maintain, and disseminate criminal intelligence information ``in conformance with policy standards which are prescribed by the Office of Justice Programs.'' The statute specifies that the policy standards must be written to assure that the funding and operation of the systems further the purpose of the funding provisions and assure that such systems ``are not utilized in violation of the privacy and constitutional rights of individuals.'' The existing regulations were last revised in 1993 and the purpose of the revisions proposed in this document is to clarify and update the regulations in light of the new, post-9/11 information sharing environment and investigative policies aimed at preventing terrorism.

The proposed rule would amend the implementing regulation to reflect internal agency policy and practice, recent statutory enactments and court decisions, and to make certain technical changes, in order to keep the regulations comprehensive and current.
