Progress Report: FDLE Improves Operations, Some Information and Fingerprint System Backlogs Remain, Report No. 99-27, January 2000
 
Full report in PDF format


The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has acted on most of the recommendations offered in our 1998 justification review and improved its operations. However,
  • implementation of the automated fingerprint system has not yet been fully achieved; and
  • a backlog of arrest and disposition information still compromises the completeness of criminal history files.
The department is working to resolve these problems.

The Legislature should revise Chapter 943, F.S., so that officers convicted of felonies, which are prohibited by law from certification as law enforcement officers, do not require a pro forma administrative hearing to have their certification revoked.
