SEARCH welcomes a new governor appointee to its Membership Group, representing the State of California: Commissioner Joseph A. Farrow, California Highway Patrol.

He is responsible for leading one of the largest law enforcement agencies in the nation. With more than 12,000 employees and 100 offices, the CHP is responsible for patrolling the more than 1 million miles of road, protects California citizens and visitors against terrorism and computer theft, and is responsible for emergency response, anywhere in the state.

Commissioner Farrow was appointed to SEARCH by California Governor Jerry Brown effective May 19, 2016.

The SEARCH Membership Group, which governs SEARCH, is comprised of one gubernatorial appointee from each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the territories, as well as eight at-large appointees selected by SEARCH’s Chair. This national body of state-level professionals is widely representative of the various disciplines within the justice system, and many are responsible for operational decisions and policymaking concerning the management of criminal justice information, particularly criminal history information. The Membership Group fosters cooperation and communication among justice system professionals in identifying and implementing solutions to common problems.
