Enterprise Strategic Planning for Justice Information Sharing: Learn the “Why” and “How” from New SEARCH Publications
Justice and public safety organizations develop technology solutions so they can obtain and share justice information. This effort is rarely limited to a single agency—planning for technology and sharing information more often takes place as part of an enterprise that spans agency and jurisdictional boundaries.
It is particularly important for organizations to plan their efforts carefully. The justice enterprise is complex and can involve multiple participants, differing governing processes and rules, distinct business needs, and competing resources.
On September 30, 2014, Owen Greenspan, an authority for all things criminal history, is retiring from SEARCH. He’s ending a 50-year career in law enforcement, criminal history records management and policy-making that began as a teenage recruit for the New York City Police Department.
During his tenure as Director of SEARCH’s Law and Policy Program, Owen helped State repositories unravel the complexities of Federal programs and laws that affect criminal history record information. He worked to help weave the nation’s criminal history record system into a cohesive working machine, despite the existence of myriad disparate State laws and statutes that often hinder seamless information sharing.
