Information Governance is a component of the Professional Standards Division and falls under the command of the Professional Standards Captain. The Information Governance Division is responsible for the care and management of the Nebraska State Patrol's records. This includes creating and maintaining the Agency's retention schedule, keeping accurate inventories of stored records, following policies and procedures for records retention and disposition, and remaining in constant contact with the Patrol's Legal, Accreditation, and Information Technology Divisions.
Information Governance responsibilities also include the proper handling and preservation of historical records, reporting all State Patrol publications to the Publications Clearinghouse, and keeping all Agency employees informed and trained on all changes to records management software systems.
As types of record mediums change and evolve, Information Governance must stay informed and up-to-date on the proper control and overall management of these documents in order to follow retention schedule rules and guidelines.
