Justice Information Sharing

Tackling justice information sharing initiatives can be overwhelming—complex, often costly and lengthy, and subject to the demands of multiple jurisdictions and disciplines. And with each new advance in technology, there’s a learning curve —some steeper than others. Justice information sharing managers and IT staff face a constant struggle in selecting which technology is best for their organization. The solution is learning what your organization’s needs are and then going from there.
