Making Information Exchange a Reality

Systems integration is the tangible implementation of real-time information exchanges, linking justice and public safety systems together, both new and legacy. This enables event-driven, instantaneous information sharing, as well as the ability to conduct split-second searches and critical broadcast notifications and alerts. Since a triggering event in one system is what initiates the transmission of agreed upon information to another partner agency, systems are not consolidated, and each agency still has the ability to control, upgrade, or change their systems at the local level.

What are some of the benefits of integration?

The answer:

  • Real-time and accurate delivery of information,
  • Elimination of redundant and manual data entry,
  • Significant increases in staff efficiency,
  • Improvements in the quality of the decisions made by justice practitioners, based on improvements in the quality of data they rely on.
  • Stronger partnerships among agencies throughout the justice enterprise.

What are some key systems that need integration?

The answer:

Any system that enables justice and public safety practitioners to improve their performance by formulating decisions and actions based on shared, timely, and accurate information. This includes any justice legacy system applications, such as:

  • Automated field, incident, and citation reporting systems,
  • Computer-aided dispatch,
  • Law enforcement records management systems,
  • Prosecutor, public defender, and probation case management systems,
  • Criminal, civil, juvenile, and specialty court case management systems,
  • Jail and offender management.
