North Dakota Criminal Justice Information Sharing (ND-CJIS) is an enterprise architecture that puts in place a statewide framework of people, processes, data, standards, and technology focused on providing accurate and comprehensive data to the criminal justice community in the State of North Dakota.
The ND-CJIS integration effort is not a single project. Rather, it is a program that incorporates many projects developed by ITD and criminal justice organizations throughout North Dakota. The integration architecture is driven by local operational needs and uses standards that will support the exchange of data across existing and developing systems.
Improve public safety by providing effective and efficient justice policies, processes, and information systems required to capture and share complete, accurate, and timely information in support of program operations and informed decision making across jurisdictional and organizational boundaries statewide.
