CJIS Compliance for Google Apps

One of the most gruesome tragedies in Connecticut history might have been prevented if law enforcement could have shared criminal justice information more effectively. In 2007, two parolees raped and murdered a mother and her two young daughters during a home invasion in Cheshire, CT. After the murders, it was discovered that a sentencing transcript, in which a judge described one of the suspects as a “calculated, cold-blooded predator,” never reached the parole board.

The communication lapse that could have prevented these fatal killings, reveals the very problem that the Criminal Justice Information Services Division was developed to solve: how can government entities protect their most valuable data while keeping it easily accessible?

While this problem remains as relevant as ever, many law enforcement and criminal justice organizations still struggle to find cost-effective, compliant ways to share their most critical info. Understanding the background and requirements of CJIS is the first step toward finding a solution.
