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.
