KSP Releases New Terminal Agreement!! (11/25/2019)
FRANKFORT, KY - After several months of negotiations with the audit staff and KSP CSO, Lt. Col. Larry Newton, the new terminal agreement has been released.
Many of our members expressed issues with the language on page 8 under Category 2 Central Dispatch Agencies option (B), regarding management control not being defined. In the new agreement released Friday November 22, 2019 that language has changed to the following:
Option B: A Central Dispatch Agency Board is established by an inter-local agreement. The board can contribute or vote on changes as an advisement to the one criminal justice agency that accepts management control, but a singular CJA will have to accept full responsibility to ensure that the information system meets the CJIS Security Policy standards. The inter-local agreement must state which CJA has management control of the CJIS and must be approved by the CSA.
