Bill Summary

Law enforcement, public safety, and criminal justice information sharing grant program - creation - grant requirements - appropriation. The act creates the law enforcement, public safety, and criminal justice information sharing grant program (grant program) within the division of homeland security and emergency management (division) in the department of public safety. The grant program provides grants to assist local law enforcement agencies in gaining access to the information-sharing system created by the Colorado information sharing consortium (CISC). Grant recipients can use the money to pay for computer hardware, software, and programming costs necessary to connect to CISC's information-sharing systems. As a condition of each grant, the grant recipient and CISC are required to ensure that the information systems comply with federal data security requirements, and that the law enforcement data and intelligence information that is shared complies with federal regulations governing the use of criminal justice information systems. The director of the division is required to promulgate rules for the administration of the grant program. The act creates the law enforcement, public safety, and criminal justice information sharing grant program fund (fund). The program and fund are repealed effective July 1, 2022.

The act appropriates $500,000 to the fund from the marijuana tax cash fund for use by the division for the implementation of the act.
