Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has appointed Indiana State Police Major Larry D. Jenkins to serve as his state’s representative to the SEARCH Membership Group. The appointment, issued by the governor last week, was made retroactive to December 19, 2019.

Major Jenkins is Assistant Chief of Staff, Communications and Information Systems, Indiana State Police. In this role, he coordinates all information technology and communications for the State Police, including analyzing how new technologies can benefit the department and improving existing technology systems and processes. One area under his authority is the Criminal Justice Data Division, which handles the Indiana Criminal History Repository, the Indiana License to Carry a Handgun Program, the Indiana Data and Communication System (IDACS), and the Indiana Vehicle Crash Records Program. Major Jenkins also oversees the Communications Section, which consists of six regional dispatch centers statewide.

Major Jenkins succeeds ISP Captain Michael White as Indiana’s representative to the SEARCH Membership Group. Capt. White, who retired, had served on the SEARCH Membership Group from April 2014 to November 2019.

The SEARCH Membership Group, the governing body of 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.
