With an award-winning dining scene, farm trail, splurge-worthy shopping, art galleries and community events, Boulder is a one of kind experience.

Attendees of the 2018 conference will discover a variety of invaluable materials and resources blended and suited specifically for local, state and federal, criminal justice practitioners. NAJIS conferences are geared to educate and demonstrate best practices for justice information system implementation and business process flow. IT technologies and standards that improve and engineer information sharing are explored in depth. Presentations are fashioned for both technical and non-technical audiences.

NAJIS focuses on delivering materials constructed for long-term, technology driven, government ROI. Information sharing mechanisms, utilizing secure, web based technologies, such as SOA, NIEM 3.2, and GFIPM are presented comprehensively, leveraging secure gateways built to DOJ & CJIS standards. These discussions and presentations provide attendees with strategies to work smarter and with an advanced degree of fiscal insight. Grant opportunities and other funding mechanisms are explored at length, in order to provide attendees with intelligent and prudent solutions.

What makes NAJIS conferences most invaluable, are the networking opportunities that emerge at each conference. Participants frequently remark about how they discovered another attendee's justice venture closely mirrored a project that they were involved in, or about to begin. Repeatedly, these associations have provided cost saving information and analytical techniques to better prepare managers and IT professionals for their own endeavors. Networking opportunities, information sharing, synergy, emerging technologies, business continuity planning, it's all core material for the NAJIS program!
