Law enforcement agencies that use CLETS may contact their committee representatives about the system's policies, services or issues.
Attorney General's Criminal History Advisory Committee
The Attorney General's Criminal History Advisory Committee is an advisory body that assists the Attorney General in making policy related to criminal offender record information. The committee works with law enforcement and other criminal justice agencies on topics such as arrest and disposition reporting, juvenile reporting, records improvement, new technologies and information sharing between law enforcement agencies. Each committee members represent an organization and its interest on this advisory body; law enforcement agencies, interested in policies affecting criminal history records, may contact their representative.
Research Advisory Panel
California law, pursuant to Health & Safety Code Sections 11480 & 11481, requires proposed research projects involving certain opioid, stimulant, and hallucinogenic drugs classified as Schedule I and Schedule II Controlled Substances, to be reviewed and authorized by the Research Advisory Panel of California in the Attorney General´s Office.
The Research Advisory Panel primarily seeks to ensure the safety and protection of participating human research subjects and adequate security of the controlled substances used in the study. The Panel Members evaluate the scientific validity of each proposed project, and may reject proposals where the research is poorly conceived, would produce conclusions of little scientific value, or would not justify the exposure of California subjects to the risk of research.
