How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Advisory Policy Board reviews operations and policies of the systems operated by the FBI for the benefit of local, tribal, state, and federal criminal justice agencies. The systems include: the National Crime Information Center; the Uniform Crime Reporting Program; the Next Generation Identification System; the National Instant Criminal Background Check System; the National Data Exchange; and the Law Enforcement Enterprise Portal. It is the responsibility of the Board to review policy, strategic, technical and operational issues related to the CJIS systems, and recommend policy, improvements, and changes to the Director of the FBI. As a result of the expertise of the membership representing the criminal justice community, an overwhelming majority of the Board recommendations have been adopted by the FBI.
How is membership balanced?*The CJIS Advisory Policy Board includes representatives which are chosen by local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies throughout the United States and its territories, as well as FBI Director selected representatives and professional agency representatives.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Regular meetings are held approximately twice a year, or more often in cases of special need. The majority of the agenda topics address technical, operational, and policy issues related to the automated systems administered by the FBI. The remaining agenda topics are reports on issues being addressed by other criminal justice associations/groups which may impact the FBI CJIS Programs. The FBI CJIS Division Programs serve over 90,000 criminal justice agencies. The agenda topics discussed by the CJIS Board ensure that the FBI CJIS Division systems are responsive to the needs and views of the criminal justice practitioners.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The CJIS systems are managed by the FBI on behalf of the entire criminal justice community. The primary beneficiaries of the FBI CJIS Programs are the local, tribal, state, and federal criminal justice agencies throughout the United States. The CJIS Advisory Policy Board was chartered to provide a mechanism through which the local, tribal, state, and federal agency practitioners can have a voice in the operation of the systems. This advisory process ensures that the FBI Director is advised of what law enforcement officers and the other criminal justice officials need of these systems to assist them in the performance of their duties.

Recommendation RemarksThe travel total costs also reflects travel required for work done by our Working Groups and Subcommittees who meet in a biannual cycle to provide guidance and recommendations to the APB for final action. The Working Group meetings touch all 18,000 law enforcement agencies across the US to give them the opportunity to provide input into the shared management of the national services at the FBI through their state's representatives. The Subcommittee meetings gather together subject matter experts for each CJIS service to determine how best to mature the service. Both the Working Groups (representing all users) and the Subcommittees (representing Subject Matter Experts) provide their recommendations to the Advisory Policy Board (APB). This allows the APB recommendations to the FBI Director to be reflective of and in consideration of the data owners and users of the services from the law enforcement, criminal justice, tribal, parole, probation, prosecutorial, judicial, and national security sectors across the country.
