Privacy & Technology
Bill Number: HB19-1073
Year: 2019
ACLU Position: Oppose
Sponsors: A. Benavidez/R. Fields

Description:

The bill 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 bill creates the law enforcement, public safety, and criminal
justice information sharing grant program fund, and directs the general
assembly to appropriate $1.9 million to the fund from the marijuana tax
cash fund for the 2019-20 fiscal year.
