Justice Information Exchange Model (JIEM) Tool

Developed by SEARCH, The National Consortium for Justice Information and Statistics, the Justice Information Exchange Model (JIEM) is a useful tool in planning and implementing justice integration projects using the Global Justice Extensible Markup Language (XML) Data Model (Global JXDM). The JIEM is a conceptual framework that defines the universal dimensions of information exchange; a research and planning methodology for modeling the operational dynamics of this information exchange; and a Web-based software application, the JIEM Modeling Tool, that enables data collection, analysis, and reporting by users and researchers. The JIEM is a valuable tool for breaking down criminal justice processes into key decision points, identifying critical areas the justice community needs to share and access information electronically.

The JIEM interfaces with the Global JXDM and allows users to incorporate reference exchanges into their site databases at the outset of their documentation efforts. The JIEM contains hundreds of key exchanges common to most jurisdictions. These key exchanges were developed as a result of years of research among numerous jurisdictions.

JIEM training classes and certification are available for those interested in learning how to use the JIEM for justice integration. Refer to the section below on JIEM Training and Certification for more information.

The Justice Information Exchange Model has proven to be valuable in analyzing the flow of criminal justice information and in modeling complex business processes. For more information on the JIEM, refer to http://www.search.org/programs/info/jiem.asp.

Refer to Justice Information Exchange Model (JIEM) for more information.

JIEM training classes provide in-depth instruction on the JIEM, are primarily geared toward public-sector individuals, and give participants an opportunity to meet other justice system practitioners facing integrated justice planning and implementation issues. Participants who complete the class will be able to use the JIEM Modeling Tool within their respective jurisdictions.

Attendees who satisfactorily complete the course have the opportunity to take the certification examination. For more information on training classes and scheduled training dates, refer to http://www.search.org/programs/info/jiem/training/.

JIEM Certification
The Justice Information Exchange Model (JIEM) Certification Program enables public- and private-sector individuals to receive in-depth instruction on the JIEM and its components. JIEM certification requires participation in the training classes and passing the certification exam. Certified participants will be able to assist multiple justice organizations throughout the nation with modeling justice system information flow and business rules by identifying, describing, documenting, and defining key interagency information exchanges.
