National Crime Prevention and Privacy Compact Council Law and Legal Definition

National crime prevention and privacy compact council (compact council) is a federal agency that was established for the purpose of exchanging criminal records for noncriminal justice purposes by various states. Records are exchanged on the basis of reciprocity among states to share records without charging each other for the information. According to 28 CFR 907.1,the compact council provides rules and standards regarding application and response procedures, record dissemination and use, response times, data quality, system security, accuracy, privacy protection, and other aspects of system operation for noncriminal justice purposes. However, the rule provides comprehensive procedures for a coordinated compliance effort among the compact council, the FBI, and local state and federal government agencies, and encourages the cooperation of all affected parties.
