In our digital era, information has become a thread that provides an opportunity to tie the many aspects of our criminal justice process into a more efficient and effective system. This paper presents insights into the decision making process for justice information systems integration. The paper also discusses the technological advances, which create opportunities for each locality and state to develop a governance process that will serve as a viable solution for its own jurisdiction.

Executive Summary

From the Paper:

"How will the modern day justice system become more efficient and possibly more successful in the twenty-first century and beyond? The answer is simple, the entire system will need to take advantage of the technological advances and focus its time, efforts and resources in a direction that will meet the objectives of the entire community. "Criminal justice integration is a prime example of using IT to solve problems and improve service to citizens. A survey of the Governors of all 50 states was conducted in the spring of 1999 to determine Governors top priorities for IT applications, and nearly every responding governor listed criminal justice integration as a major near-term priority." (Meyers, 2004) This system would alter the makeup of any single agency such as a prosecutor's office or a police department. These historically isolated entities would have the same information at their fingertips as any large governmentally supported agency once integration nears completion. "Project staff has developed a web-based modeling tool and a methodology to capture detailed information regarding the processes, events, agencies, information and exchange conditions associated with justice information integration, which was initially tested in five states: Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota, New Mexico and Pennsylvania, and has been introduced into over 20 jurisdictions." (The Justice Information Exchange Model, 2005) "
