Welcome to the Justice Information Sharing Practitioners (JISP) Network
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.
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.
Policies and Standards
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.
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.
