The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) launched the Tribal Access Program for National Crime Information (TAP) in August 2015 to provide tribes access to national crime information systems for both civil and criminal purposes. TAP allows tribes to more effectively serve and protect their nation’s citizens by ensuring the exchange of critical data across the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) systems and other national crime information systems. By the end of fiscal year 2018 TAP will be deployed to 47 tribes with over 150 tribal criminal justice and civil agencies participating. The service provides software to enable tribes to access national crime information databases and/or a kiosk-workstation that provides the ability to submit and query fingerprint-based transactions via FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) for both criminal and civil purposes. In order to make informed decisions about participation in TAP, the Department of Justice has developed an application for use by federally recognized tribes interested in participating in TAP. The application includes information about current challenges to access that the tribe is facing as well as information and data about the current level of access and participation in national crime information systems. The application will enable tribes to think comprehensively about their needs for TAP as well as their planned usage of the information systems. In addition, the Department of Justice will improve decision making during the selection process when increased TAP participation is possible.
