Welcome to the Justice Information Sharing Practitioners (JISP) Network


Justice information sharing is at the heart of everything we need to do to prevent terrorism, reduce crime and improve the quality of justice in America. As a network of state, local, and tribal justice information sharing practitioners (JISP), JISP promotes best practices, standards, and resources for solving the issues of justice information sharing.Through JISP, practitioners, representing various projects, jurisdictions, and disciplines work together to facilitate communication, remove barriers, share expertise and lessons learned.

Scores of professionals from criminal justice organizations across the country are addressing the the issues of interoperability and information sharing, and a number of organizations and agencies (funded by the federal government) are devoted to providing expertise or training and technical assistance to advance the implementation of national standards and resulting information sharing.  With over 1200 members, JISP provides a mechanism for practitioners to share and leverage ideas, concepts, standards, experiences, and resources within its peer network;  JISP provides a vehicle for practitioners to access assistance and subject matter expertise of other members.

JISP Leadership is comprised of experienced and reputable project/program leaders from various local and state criminal justice information sharing initiatives in the United States. Blending the information, experience, and resources across many sources, many agencies and diverse backgrounds, JISP promotes coordinated, value, and result-driven outcomes.

A Virtual Community

The JISP website is intended to facilitate networking among state and local justice information sharing practitioners; to be a "real-time" communication device where the membership can leverage concepts, ideas, deliverables, and other useful information on a day-to-day basis.

Members can use the website to engage in conversation on the discussion forum, upload files to the shared library, post blogs, post upcoming events to the calendar, and search for and contact other members.

Policies and Standards


It is important that local, state, and tribal practitioners make their voice heard as national standards and policies emerge and are implemented around the country. JISP members receive information and solicitations for feedback on important issues.

Training Opportunities and Events

Given the current economic environment and the resulting decrease in face-to-face training opportunities, it is even more important to have a voice in the development of -- and to receive information about -- training that is available and applicable to practitioners. JISP provides a vehicle for input and a connection to training opportunities.Members help define priority topics and serve as presenters for national- and state-level conferences, and JISP solicits input and feedback from members about these forums. 

Find upcoming events and training opportunities (including distance learning) on the Events Calendar. Browse the JISP webinar archive in the Virtual Library.


News and Information from the Field

The JISP Beacon for Justice newsletter has been replaced with a shared blog and Twitter feed (located on the homepage) where we can share information of interest to the CJIS community, such as national standards implementation, state and local information sharing success stories, employment opportunities, and upcoming events and training opportunities.
