The state of New York outlines the need to facilitate integrated Justice Information Systems planning and implementation by enhancing the ability to access and share critical criminal justice information electronically at key decisions points throughout the criminal justice process.

In 2006, the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices organized a Policy Academy which included five states.  A grant of  $50,000 to each state was used to fund research to encourage justice information sharing using the Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM). States included in the Policy Academy were Connecticut, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, and North Carolina. Pilot projects focused on a variety of information exchanges. This report, drafted by the state of New York, outlines the need to facilitate integrated justice information systems planning and implementation by enhancing the ability to access and share critical criminal justice information electronically at key decision points throughout the criminal justice process.
