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.

Justice Information Sharing Organization:
Criminal Justice Sharing Contact Information
The North Carolina Criminal Justice Information Network (CJIN) Governing Board
Eugene Vardaman, Executive Director
The CJIN initiative facilitates the sharing of information between state and local criminal justice agencies.
To develop a statewide criminal justice information network in North Carolina that will enable a properly authorized user to readily and effectively use information, regardless of its location in national, state, or local databases.
During the 1994 Special Crime Session, the North Carolina General Assembly created the CJIN Study Committee and appropriated monies to study and develop a plan for a statewide criminal justice information network. The CJIN Study Final Report outlined a comprehensive strategic plan that provided the vision for the statewide CJIN. Based on recommendations and strategies identified in the plan, the General Assembly established the CJIN Governing Board in Section 23.3 of Chapter 18 of the Session Laws of the 1996 Second Extra Session.
CJIN is governed by a 22-member board that represents the state agencies that deal with criminal justice, a cross-section of local law enforcement, and a number of court officials representing the various judicial roles. The board identifies common projects that improve communication and data sharing. It also champions individual agency efforts that may benefit the overall criminal justice community. The board is made up of state and local officials representing information technology, law enforcement, the judiciary, and the Division of Motor Vehicles; the president of the North Carolina Chapter of the Association of Public Communications Officials International appoints one member to the board.
