Criminal Justice Sharing Initiative
On this page is a description of the statewide criminal
justice information sharing initiative (CJIS) and point of contact (POC) as
identified by the State Administering Agency (SAA) Director. We
recognize that there are also other key state POCs involved in
information sharing that represent the various disciplines within criminal
justice. We have included POC information provided through the SAA and/or
and represented on various organizations (such as NLETS, NASCIO, SEARCH and the
NCSC.) Recognizing that these agencies spend considerable time
maintaining their membership lists up to date, we have provided links to access
those membership lists directly from their respective websites below.
Please note: At a future point, we would like to
highlight local and tribal information sharing initiatives within
states. Please contact Tammy Woodhams at email@example.com if you have a
recommended change to the data provided for your state or would like to add
information about your local initiative.

In January 2015 the Alabama Justice Information Commission was created as a policy and oversight board over all state justice information sharing. This board is composed of a 14-member voting section and a six-member advisory section that includes representatives from state and local governments and professional associations. The commission is responsible for establishing the policies and rules governing the operation of the agency. The commission’s voting section includes representatives from law enforcement and the judiciary, prosecuting attorneys, and district attorneys, while the advisory section includes legislators, municipal and county government association presidents, a representative from the Administrative Office of the Courts, and an Alabama citizen.
