Criminal and Juvenile Justice Information Advisory Group

Active dates:2016 -
Function:

The advisory group shall serve as the state advisory group on statewide criminal justice information policy and funding issues. The advisory group shall study and make recommendations to the governor, the supreme court, and the legislature on criminal justice information funding and policy issues such as related data practices, individual privacy rights, and data on race and ethnicity; information-sharing at the local, state, and federal levels; technology education and innovation; the impact of proposed legislation on the criminal justice system related to information systems and business processes; and data and identification standards.

The advisory group shall file a biennial report with the governor, supreme court, and chairs and ranking minority members of the senate and house of representatives committees and divisions with jurisdiction over criminal justice funding and policy by January 15 in each odd-numbered year. 

History:

Changes in 2016 Minn. Laws Chap. 116 ended the role of the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Information Policy Group and the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Information Task Force and created instead the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Information Advisory Group. 

According the House Research Bill Summary for H.F. 3423 in 2016, the bill amends the structure and purpose of the previous two groups in the following ways:

  • adds the word “Advisory” to the group’s title and expands the list of specified members from 9 to 36;
  • eliminates the task force appointed to advise the group and appoints the task force members as full members of the advisory group;
  • removes references to CriMNet; 
  • redefines the group’s mission; and
  • simplifies the statutory guidance on how requests for funding submitted to the advisory group should be acted upon.
