Annotation: This 1995 Directory of Computerized Criminal Justice Information Systems contains descriptions of automated criminal justice information systems used by the police, the public prosecutor's office, the courts, the correctional administrations, and other criminal justice agencies throughout Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Latin America.
Abstract: The directory describes the criminal justice information systems that are operational or that are being developed, shows the current status of each system's application, and provides contact names and addresses.

Further, it can assist criminal justice agencies of similar size and information-processing needs to identify and transfer existing information and statistical applications.

The System Name Index lists each of the information systems alphabetically by name. The directory will be updated continuously, with the second edition scheduled for early 1996.
