  Annotation: This report outlines the basic principles, priority issues, and capabilities required to implement the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative, whose goal is to transform the Nation’s justice and public-safety information-sharing business model through more effective, efficient, and coordinated technical, policy, and funding solutions and practices.
Abstract: The four principles underlying this transformation address actions that meet the needs of State, local, and tribal (SLT) information-gathering agencies, leverage evidence-based practices, incorporate sound development strategies, and reflect global tenets of information-sharing. Two of the four transformation principles pertain to national approaches and interoperability. There are three phases of the national approach. First, SLT agencies should receive input from national stakeholders and participate with Federal and private industry partners. Second, they should build organizational capacity through engagement, coordination, training, and managerial support. Third, they should focus on national strategies and resources on all-crimes/all-hazards. The principle of interoperability has six phases that address adoption and use of open standards; the use of the national models, strategies, and capabilities; the elimination of redundant systems; the leveraging of existing infrastructure and solutions; the use of appropriate and secure cloud strategy; and resolution of conflicts. The remaining two transformation principles emphasize informed justice and public safety decisionmaking, as well as responsible information-sharing polices, practices, and values. The factors that are driving this transformation in nationwide information-sharing are also outlined. Three priority capabilities are noted: the development of a single sign-on/federated query, the leveraging of secure cloud solutions, and the development and participation in shared services and systems. Two priority issues are the insurance of interoperability between law enforcement “deconfliction” systems and advance information-sharing to support successful reentry of formerly incarcerated individuals. Recommended immediate steps are the leveraging of global-recommended solutions, training, and technical assistance, as well as collaboration with mission partners and key stakeholders.
