Introduction: The Kansas Criminal Justice Information System (KCJIS) is a highly secure, public safety communication system with information sharing of sensitive, criminal justice information as its core purpose. Started in 1998, the KCJIS system is connected to over 1500 local, tribal, state and federal agencies in all 105 counties and boasts over 9000 criminal justice and law enforcement users.
The KCJIS Committee, a team of state agencies and public safety associations, recently completed their 2018-2023 Strategic Plan, which included an updated Vision, Mission and Goals.
Vision: “A safer Kansas through effective criminal justice information sharing.”
Mission: “We are a criminal justice information-sharing environment that provides professionals with access to information they need when they need it.”
Goals: 1) Partnership Engagement; 2) Information Sharing; 3) Information and System Security; 4) Standards-Based Systems; 5) Information Technology Advancements
The KCJIS integrated system provides daily operating information used by criminal justice, public officials, and policymakers in Kansas and elsewhere. There are many separate information repositories, affiliated systems, and a variety of agencies that collectively comprise KCJIS. Some information systems are fully integrated into KCJIS and others have yet to be integrated. All users and contributing agencies are critical to the success of KCJIS as they both provide information to and use information from the system. KCJIS depends upon the collection of and access to timely, accurate, complete, and consistent information.
