NATIONAL INFORMATION EXCHANGE MODEL

Iowa Criminal Justice Information Sharing (CJIS) Project

State and local law enforcement agencies were using agency-specific IT systems. Over the past five years, the team created the Iowa Criminal Justice Information Sharing (CJIS) Project by adding a Service Oriented Architecture superstructure on top of, in between and separate from these agency legacy systems. Built on the Global Reference Architecture and NIEM, the state set up 24 exchanges, linking more than 100 state and local law enforcement agencies.
