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.

Justice Information Sharing Organization: The Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center (HCJDC)

Director: Liane M. Moriyama, administrator, Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center, Department of the Attorney General

Mission: The mission of the Hawaii Integrated Justice Information Sharing (HIJIS) Program is to facilitate collaborative decision-making, coordinated planning, and cooperative implementation among justice agencies and relevant partners for the fair, efficient, and effective operation of the justice system.

About: HCJDC, a division of the Department of the Attorney General within the state’s executive branch, is responsible for the statewide criminal history record information system (CJIS-Hawaii), the statewide Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), the Lights Out Transaction Controller (LOTC), the adult booking system (Green Box), the statewide sex offender registry, the Adult Criminal Conviction Information Web Site (eCrim), the statewide Mug Photo System and the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).

Created: HIJIS was formally initiated in March 2007 through the joint efforts of HCJDC, the attorney general, and key decision makers representing the principal justice agencies throughout Hawaii, including the judiciary, law enforcement, prosecution, intake services, public safety, and affiliated agencies, as well as key federal agencies. The principal lead agency is HCJDC, established in 1979 by the Hawaii State Legislature with a mandate to maintain a statewide criminal history repository.

Governance Details: The HIJIS Program is governed by an executive committee of agency executives and leaders, an operational working group of agency managers and operational practitioners, and a technical working group of technology manager and experts responsible for building and operating the information technology assets of participating agencies. The HIJIS executive committee includes key executives from the justice and public safety communities and is chaired by the attorney general. The executive committee is responsible for providing leadership and for creating the vision, setting the overall direction, and providing the necessary resources for the program. The operational working group is made up of operational practitioners from key justice and relevant non-justice agencies and is responsible for organizing the vision established by the executive committee, defining operational requirements and business processes to realize that vision, and providing insight and direction in developing a business plan for information sharing. Finally, the technical working group is composed of technical representatives of participating justice and relevant non-justice agencies and is responsible for making technical and infrastructure assessments, developing and adopting standards that will enable information sharing, researching and proposing technical solutions, undertaking pilot projects, and developing technical specifications in support of the HIJIS Program.
