Crimenet Grant Contracts Add Up To $1.05 Million
Officials in Anoka County, Minn., have cleared two state grants, totaling over $1 million in support of the statewide computerized criminal network project called CriMNet.
The program is essentially a single computerized management system for tracking county inmates from facility to facility and will automatically notify victims upon the release of an inmate.
Anoka currently houses inmates in three facilities: the County Jail, Lino Lakes medium security jail, and the Anoka Metro Regional Treatment Center.
Minnesota’s goal is have the state 85 percent to 90 percent networked on CriMNet by 2005, progressively through using Anoka County’s central records system as a pilot program for other counties.
