Comparison of Official and unofficial sources of criminal history record information
- In February 2005, the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, in collaboration with the Illinois Integrated Justice Information System initiative, conducted a review of two private providers of conviction records. This review compared six subjects' criminal history information as compiled by two private providers with the subjects' official rap sheets and discovered that the quality of those records varied depending upon their source. In addition to recommending further research in this area, several recommendations are presented to increase the accuracy of privately compiled criminal history records and warn users of the disparity between the official and unofficial compilations.
