Data Processing Dedication - A USAC Concern
USAC Position:- The USAC approach to Integrated Municipal Information Systems (IMIS) requires that the system be designed from a system-wide (municipal wide) perspective; that the system be operated under centralized direction; that the data base and processes be integrated so as to facilitate data, process, and facility sharing, thereby minimizing redundancy and enhancing data availability ;and that a data access control plan be instituted so as to ensure the confidentiality of the data base and the security of the system.
NCIC Position:- The National Crime Information Center (NCIC), operated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, provides a computer based national criminal history index and network to states and selected metropolitan areas. Cities participate through their respective state or metropolitan area centers. Acting on the recommendations of the NCIC Advisory Policy Board,.participants in the Computer Criminal History (CCH) portion-of the system are required to dedicate any hardware, including terminals, to be operated exclusively by personnel of criminal justice agencies; and, similarly, to restrict access to the criminal history data base to those same personnel.
