WHEN TO USE IT

 

When a CP&P Local Office conducts an expunction review, obtain the closed case record.  If the case record is not found in the Local Office, request the record from the Records Management Unit, CC# 933.  The Records Management Unit sends the requested record and CP&P Form 19-33, Interoffice Expunction Authorization, back to the requesting office.

 

HOW TO USE IT

 

·         When CP&P approves a record for expunction, the Local/Area Office completes CP&P Form 19-33 and sends it back to the Records Management Unit, to authorize Records Management to remove the record from any Record Management systems where the record may exist, i.e., the "scanned" electronic data base, and/or the "microfilm" data base.

 

·         If the CP&P Local Office determines the case record does not meet the criteria for expunction, do not use the form.  Instead send the closed case record back per normal Records Management procedures.

 

TIPS FOR COMPLETING THE FORM

 

·         All three approvals (signatures) are required (i.e., obtain and document required signatures/approvals) before sending the form back to the Closed Records Unit.

 

DISTRIBUTION
