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.
