Abstract: FOR EACH JURISDICTION COVERED, THE LISTING DESCRIBES BRIEFLY THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE INFORMATION SYSTEMS WHICH ARE OPERATIONAL OR BEING DEVELOPED, WHO IS DOING THE WORK, AND THE CURRENT STATUS OF THE SYSTEM. APPROXIMATELY 540 SEPARATELY DEFINED SYSTEMS, REPRESENTING 278 JURISDICTIONS, ARE LISTED. SYSTEM DESCRIPTIONS ARE PRESENTED IN APPENDIX B AND ARE LISTED BY NAME UNDER THE STATE AND CITY OR COUNTY IN WHICH THEY ARE LOCATED. TO FACILITATE LOCATION OF A SPECIFIC JURISDICTION'S RESPONSE, APPENDIX A, STATE JURISDICTION INDEX, PROVIDES AN INDEX OF JURISDICTIONS, ORGANIZED ALPHABETICALLY BY STATE WITH THE COUNTY-LEVEL JURISDICTIONS, FOLLOWED BY THE LOCAL-LEVEL JURISDICTIONS, LISTED ALPHABETICALLY BENEATH THE STATE. EACH SYSTEM DESCRIBED IN APPENDIX B IS COMPRISED OF A SEPARATELY DEFINED AUTOMATED CRIMINAL JUSTICE INFORMATION FUNCTION OR SET OF FUNCTIONS IN ONE OR MORE OF THE JURISDICTIONS SURVEYED. WHERE THESE ACTIVITIES ARE PERFORMED INDEPENDENTLY, ON A STAND-ALONE BASIS, SEPARATE DESCRIPTIONS ARE PROVIDED FOR EACH FUNCTION. WHERE THEY ARE GROUPED INTO SYSTEMS, A DESCRIPTION IS PROVIDED FOR THE ENTIRE SYSTEM; THE FUNCTIONS PERFORMED BY EACH 'SYSTEM' ARE LISTED SEPARATELY BENEATH THE SYSTEM DESCRIPTION. A SET OF INDEXES IS PROVIDED IN APPENDIXES C, D, AND E - A SYSTEM NAME INDEX, A SYSTEM FUNCTION INDEX, AND A CENTRAL PROCESSING UNIT INDEX. THE PRINCIPAL PURPOSE OF THE DIRECTORY IS TO SERVE AS A READY REFERENCE FOR CRIMINAL JUSTICE PLANNERS IN DEVELOPING NEW SYSTEMS OR IN ENHANCING EXISTING ONES. (FOR VOLUME TWO SEE NCJ36378.)
