Reentry Information Sharing Pilot Sites
The IJIS Institute leads this combined grant effort working in partnership with the National Governors Association, the Association of State Correctional Administrators (ASCA), the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA), the American Correctional Association (ACA), the National Sheriffs Association (NSA), the Corrections Technology Association (CTA), and the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), with support from the Council of State Government’s Justice Center. The primary goal of the project is to develop, test, and implement a standards-based offender information sharing capability in three state departments of correction. Under the guidance of the Corrections Reentry Information Sharing Project Advisory Board, which includes practitioners from corrections, parole, probation, law enforcement, and the courts, the IJIS Institute and its subcontractor have completed and vetted the Corrections Information Sharing (CIS) Service specification (SSP) which includes ten prioritized information exchanges that occur from arrest to release from supervision. Implementation of the CIS SSP is currently underway in three state departments of correction (Illinois, Iowa, and Tennessee).
