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 Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation will use the grant funds to maximize the use of Criminal Information Sharing Alliance Information Sharing Net's (CISAnet's) data and technical advantages and develop and deploy the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) Investigative Case Management System (ICMS). To accomplish this, grant funds will be used to procure hardware and software for the OSBI ICMS, hire a temporary Fusion Center Liaison Coordinator, and purchase equipment to expand OSBI's in-state voice communication capabilities. CISAnet facilitates the collection, use, and sharing of criminal intelligence and investigative information among and 10 states, 7 statewide Counter Terrorism and Criminal Information Centers, 8 High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTAs), and 6 Regional Information Sharing Systems (RISS). CISAnet places information in the hands of law enforcement and is crucial to securing our borders and is a crucial technology source in combating drug trafficking and other criminal activity.
