DEFINITION: A criminal intelligence system is defined in 28 C.F.R. Part 23 as the arrangements, equipment, facilities and procedures used for the receipt, storage, interagency exchange, or dissemination and analysis of criminal intelligence information.
COMPLIANCE: Monitoring compliance with criminal intelligence systems requirements only affect grantees that were awarded technology. At the time of application, grantees must sign and submit a Special Condition indicating their grant award will not be used for criminal intelligence sharing or, if intelligence sharing is anticipated, then certifying that the criminal intelligence system will be operated in accordance with the provisions of 28 C.F.R. Part 23. Thereafter, during the grant funding period, the COPS Office will further monitor those grantees who indicated in the Special Condition that they will be operating a criminal intelligence system. This follow-up monitoring includes requesting a certification from the grantee indicating actual or anticipated compliance with 28 C.F.R. Part 23 requirements.
