Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $500,000)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Competitive Program: National Initiatives, administered by the Office of Justice Programs' Bureau of Justice Assistance, furthers the Department's mission by assisting state and local jurisdictions in improving the criminal justice system and assisting communities in preventing drug abuse and crime. In FY 2008, the program will focus on funding local, regional, and national efforts within five major categories: 1) preventing crime and drug abuse; 2) enhancing local law enforcement; 3) enhancing local courts; 4) enhancing local corrections and offender reentry; and 5) facilitating justice information sharing.

The Institute for Intergovernmental Research (IIR) will implement the Privacy 101 Technical Assistance and Training Program under category 5: facilitating justice information sharing. IIR will improve justice information sharing through comprehensive understanding of the provisions in Title 28 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 23 (28 CFR Part 23). Title 28 CFR Part 23 addresses effective implementation of criminal intelligence systems and enhanced development of privacy and civil liberties policies by law enforcement agencies. IIR will coordinate with the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative and the Criminal Intelligence Coordinating Council to manage curriculum enhancement, coordinate technical assistance and training delivery, and develop an online training component.
