Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $500,000)

The Congressionally Recommended Awards Program, authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010 (Pub. L. 111-117), helps improve the functioning of the criminal justice system, prevent or combat juvenile delinquency, and/or assist victims of crime (other than compensation). Funds should be used for the projects recommended by Congress, in the amounts specified in the joint explanatory statement incorporated by reference into Pub. L. 111-117, and generally consistent with one or more of the following statutory purposes: improving the functioning of the criminal justice system, preventing or combating juvenile delinquency, or assisting victims of crime (other than compensation). Each of these purposes is framed using language drawn, respectively, from the former Byrne discretionary statute, the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, the Victims of Crime Act, and the Violence Against Women Act. This project is authorized and funded through a line item in the FY 2010 Congressional Budget and by the joint explanatory statement that is incorporated by reference into the FY2010 Department of Justice Appropriations Act.

The Idaho Criminal Information Sharing Alliance (CISAnet) continues to operate and maintain the ten-state law enforcement information sharing network, enhance the system to ensure the continued sharing of information between CISAnet participants in a secure, timely, and efficient manner necessary to satisfy the demanding needs of law enforcement, and provide upgrades and enhancements required to enhance the system's security, availability and functionality. CISAnet ensures that state and local law enforcement officers, the individuals most likely to come into direct contact with terrorists, drug traffickers or other criminals, have the best information available to them in a timely manner. CISAnet is an important component of an overall prevention strategy and is crucial to protecting the American people.
