Annotation: This article describes how law enforcement agencies are implementing GJXDM (Global Justice XML Data Model), which is a way for law enforcement agencies to share records and other data without investing in new systems or paying existing vendors to customize interfaces with each other.
Abstract: GJXDM is the technology used in several regional data-sharing initiatives across the United States, including the Amber Alert system and the Regional Information Sharing System (RISS). Local agencies are also using the system. One example is the Northwest Indiana Criminal Justice Network, which involved data sharing between the Hammond Police Department and the Gary Police Department, with each agency bearing half the cost of the system. The GJXDM technology being used is New World's Regional Data Sharing (RDS) product. By sharing information across jurisdictions, the agencies are able to determine whether there are crime patterns and offender operatives across jurisdictions. Investigative evidence can be shared as well. Expectations for the new system include computerizing and sharing information from field interviews as well as the standardizing of offense reports across all jurisdictions that may join the network. Another example of a GJXDM application is the RISA project in Los Angeles County. Beginning as a local San Diego Harbor Police Department program to help predict potential terrorist and criminal activities, it evolved into the integration of preincident indictor data from San Diego's Airport Access Control System, Marine Operations Information System, and Port Activity Data System, as well as field incident report data stored in the Harbor Police Department's Records Management System. A third example of a GJXDM application is CrimeCog's small-agency solution, whose target market consists of small- to medium-sized agencies. The end CrimeCog product is an enterprise that tracks offenders from incident through the criminal justice system, but it can be used to track information in any situation, including mass casualty events or immigration enforcement initiatives.
