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 twoodhams@ncja.org if you have a recommended change to the data provided for your state or would like to add information about your local initiative.

CICJIS agencies include the Department of Public Safety, Colorado Bureau of Investigation; District Attorneys Council; judicial branch; Department of Corrections; and the Department of Human Services, Division of Youth Corrections.

Mission: The purpose of CICJIS is to develop, in a cost-effective manner, a seamless, integrated criminal justice information system that maximizes standardization of data and communications technology among law enforcement agencies, district attorneys, the courts, and state-funded corrections for adult and youth offenders.

Created: In 1995, the Colorado legislature mandated the development of CICJIS in House Bill 95-1101 and Senate Bill 96-221.

In addition, a working group, made up of the chief information officers and other designated representatives of the five member agencies, provides support and guidance for the CICJIS program.
