Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $200,000)
The California Department of Justice (CA DOJ) will utilize grant funds to support California sex offender registration and notification business and technical processes and procedures by acquiring new computer systems (i.e., laptops, desktops, power cords, adapters, docking stations, printers etc.) and all necessary hardware. These supplies will replace the CA DOJ’s Violent Crime Information Center’s (VCIC) outdated computer systems and hardware. With the new computer systems and supporting hardware, VCIC personnel will be able to correct technology inconsistencies, optimize staff performance levels, and prevent new malware and cyber security exploits that can easily infiltrate the systems and compromise the integrity of California’s sex offender registration information.
