Pennsylvania to upgrade criminal record data collection

The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency will be able to improve local criminal records information in the state thanks to a grant from the Justice Department.

With the over $814,000 in grant funds, PCCD will purchase Live Scan Plus devices for six counties and 10 Pennsylvania State Police substations to improve the accuracy of information in criminal records databases. With the devices, officers can electronically collect fingerprints, photographs and other data during the booking process and immediately upload that information to state and federal systems.

Additionally, some of the grant funding will be used to streamline the process for the electronic processing of Protection from Abuse Orders and enhance the electronic submission of PFAs into the National Crime Information Center.
