Auditors, attorney general rap info-sharing system


State auditors and Connecticut Attorney General George C. Jepsen say they've found problems hampering the start of a $24 million system for state and local law enforcement agencies to share information.

The Day of New London reports that a consultant reports that the Criminal Information Sharing System is "at a high risk for failure" and is not likely to be completed in November 2014, as projected.

Mike Lawlor, undersecretary for criminal justice policy, says the Malloy administration is making numerous fixes.

Lawmakers authorized the project in 2008 in response to previous pardons issued to the two men involved in the Cheshire home invasion murders without getting all available information from other state agencies.

The system is intended to allow about 23,000 authorized users to share information collected by various criminal justice agencies.
