LANSING, Mich. - Gov. Rick Snyder today signed an executive order establishing an advisory board that will offer recommendations to the Michigan State Police about issues related to the development and use of criminal justice information systems. The goal is to make sure the state and local law enforcement agencies are working together to share vital information that is needed to keep communities safe.

Executive Order 2011-7 creates the Michigan Criminal Justice Information System Board. Twenty-two members representing various criminal justice agencies and interested groups will serve on the board.

"Law enforcement agencies across the state need better information sharing capabilities in order to find people responsible for crimes and keep our communities safe," Snyder said. "At the same time, we also need to make sure citizens' privacy rights and personal information are protected. This advisory board will help maintain that appropriate balance."

Snyder's executive order reconstitutes a board that former Gov. Granholm abolished in 2008. The new board will give local law enforcement and other stakeholders a voice in setting policy for the access, use, and dissemination of criminal justice information.

The Council for Law Enforcement and Reinvention was instrumental in the development of this executive order. The full text of E.O. 2011-7 is available online at www.michigan.gov/snyder.
