Sec. 54-142h. Data collection; audit; maintenance of records and log. (a) All criminal justice agencies that collect, store or disseminate criminal history record information shall institute a process of data collection, entry, storage and systematic audit that will minimize the possibility of recording and storing inaccurate criminal history record information, and shall notify, upon the discovery of any such inaccuracy, all criminal justice agencies known to have received such information. The Division of Criminal Justice may give advice to criminal justice agencies concerning the collection, storage and dissemination of criminal history record information, provided the giving of such advice shall not interfere with the duties or supersede the authority of the state librarian or public records administrator with respect to public records.

(b) For the purpose of verifying the completeness and accuracy of criminal history record information collected and maintained by criminal justice information agencies subject to Title 28, Chapter 1, Part 20 of the Code of Federal Regulations, the Division of Criminal Justice shall conduct an annual audit of the records maintained by such agencies. Said division shall provide for a random sample of criminal justice agencies to be audited each year.

(c) Criminal justice agencies subject to such audits shall maintain and retain records that will facilitate such audits, including, but not limited to, the keeping of a log which chronologically records the date nonconviction record information was disclosed, the information disclosed, how or where the information was obtained and the person or criminal justice agency to whom the information was disseminated. Such log shall be maintained for a minimum period of twelve months. It shall not be necessary to log the disclosure of nonconviction record information to any authorized officer or employee within such agency.
