Making sure that state and local law enforcement use the same clearinghouse for information is the focus of a bill signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder.
Marquette County Sheriff Mike Lovelace was on hand in Lansing last Thursday when Snyder signed the bill to create an advisory board.
The group 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 various police agencies can access and share vital information about crimes and/or suspects.
Twenty–two members representing various criminal justice agencies and interested groups will serve on the board.
