Federal Bureau of Investigation

Notice of Charter Reestablishment

    In accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee 
Act, Title 5, United States Code, Appendix, and Title 41, Code of 
Federal Regulations, Section 101-6.1015, with the concurrence of the 
Attorney General, I have determined that the reestablishment of the 
Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Advisory Policy Board 
(APB) is in the public interest. In connection with the performance of 
duties imposed upon the FBI by law, I hereby give notice of the 
reestablishment of the APB Charter.
    The APB provides me with general policy recommendations with 
respect to the philosophy, concept, and operational principles of the 
various criminal justice information systems managed by the FBI's CJIS 
    The APB includes representatives from local and state criminal 
justice agencies; tribal law enforcement representatives; members of 
the judicial, prosecutorial, and correctional sectors of the criminal 
justice community, as well as one individual representing a national 
security agency; a representative of federal agencies participating in 
the CJIS Division Systems; and representatives of criminal justice 
professional associations (i.e., the American Probation and Parole 
Association; American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors, Inc.; 
International Association of Chiefs of Police; National District 
Attorneys' Association; National Sheriffs' Association; Major Cities 
Chiefs' Association; Major County Sheriffs' Association; and a 
representative from a national professional association representing 
the courts or court administrators nominated by the Conference of Chief 
Justices). The Attorney General has granted me the authority to appoint 
all members to the APB.
    The APB functions solely as an advisory body in compliance with the 
provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act. The Charter has been 
filed in accordance with the provisions of the Act.

    Dated: May 10, 2013.
