Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $124,936)

Through the National Justice Information Sharing (JIS) Initiative solicitation, BJA seeks to enable the nation's criminal justice community to improve information sharing through advanced technology and tools that increase efficiency, enhance operations, and promote cost savings and reuse. The National JIS Initiative works collaboratively with key stakeholders and national partner organizations to identify critical issues and problems, and provide resources in response to emerging challenges in law enforcement, courts, corrections, reentry, human/social services, and tribal justice. BJA seeks to strengthen the criminal justice system by soliciting applications in the six specific categories, which collectively support BJA's National JIS Initiative.

The Maryland State Police will use the grant funds, awarded under Category 5: Statewide Fusion Center Pilot Projects, to support a fusion center pilot project that focuses on enhancing analytic capabilities; improving electronic communication with local law enforcement agencies; and implementing more effective and efficient reporting, evaluation, and sharing of Suspicious Activity Reporting information.
