IJIS Participates in FBI Advisory Policy Board Meetings

Posted By Bruce Kelling, Monday, May 25, 2015

The IJIS Institute participated in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Advisory Policy Board meetings in April and represented the interests of industry in a number of discussions. Here are four key highlights from these meetings:

  • A proposal was submitted to the APB’s Identification Services Subcommittee (ISS) by the IJIS Institute Livescan Data Exchange Task Force to inform the ISS of the initiative and request assistance from the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) division and the CJIS Advisory Process and CJIS. The proposal was accepted and approved by the ISS and the IJIS Institute will continue to work with the ISS on the Livescan topic.
  • During the NDEx Subcommittee meeting there was a presentation on the LEXS strategy that expressed the commitment of the DOJ’s Office of the CIO to ownership of LEXS, and requested CJIS (via the NDEx Subcommittee) participate in a new LEXS Planning Committee. The chair asked the IJIS Institute for the IJIS/industry viewpoint, and we noted our endorsement and cited the consensus interest of industry (derived from our December 2014 NCS-X NIBRS meeting) as well as the significance of the LEXS installed base. The NDEx Subcommittee fully endorsed the proposal and IJIS is invited to participate in the LEXS Planning Committee.
  • The UCR/NIBRS subcommittee unanimously voted to sunset UCR in five years, and this now goes to the full APB in June for a decision.
  • Based on requests from CJIS, there will be a meeting in the coming weeks on IJIS/CJIS strategy to look at both the short-term issues and opportunities for engagement, and begin looking at long-term – the Roadmap.  

The IJIS Institute expresses its gratitude to the many Members who participated in the Livescan Data Exchange Task Force and the CJIS Programs Advisory Committee who assisted in the preparation of materials and representatives for these important meetings.
