State shall, to the extent not inconsistent with law, cooperate
fully with the Illinois State Police and furnish the
Illinois State Police with all relevant information and assistance on a
timely basis as is necessary to accomplish the purpose of this
Act. The Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority shall submit the information required in subsection (a) of this Section to the Illinois State Police, and any other information as the Illinois State Police may request, to assist the Illinois State Police in carrying out its duties under this Act.
