Launch of New Application for Criminal Justice Integration
As part of its continuing effort to upgrade key information systems used throughout the County, the Information Services Department (ISD), in partnership with the Criminal Justice Community, has recently implemented a new Portal for the Criminal Justice Integration (CJI) project. The goal of this project is to provide more transparent and timely Criminal Justice data, more efficient case management, and better decision-making ability for the Sheriff’s Office, District Attorney’s Office, Superior Court, and Probation Department. The CJI project consists of migrating to “best of breed” applications for each department and then linking these applications to a common data source and a unified query and reporting system with appropriate security and privacy functionality. These new applications have greatly improved and customized functionality for each department while at the same time maintaining their ability to share information and giving strong technical improvements in terms of speed and reliability.
The first release of the CJI Portal was placed into production on March 15, 2016. As part of this release, information from the Jail Management System (ATIMS) used by the Sheriff's Office and PBK Case Management System used by the District Attorney’s Office will be rendered via the portal based on privileges assigned to a given user.
These offices can now search for records based on booking data, DA filings, involved persons search, victim information, booking log, visitation information, in-custody inmates, and inmate release dates. In addition, as part of a second release scheduled to go live in April, information from the Odyssey Case Management System (used by the Court) will be incorporated and additional search functionality will be included. The portal will then be rolled out to the Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) and other external stakeholders.
