Since 2000, the Center for Network Development (CND) and the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) have worked cooperatively to develop national standards for juvenile information sharing. In response to the at-risk youth and juvenile justice community, CND has actively participated in several juvenile information sharing initiatives development and implementation processes and has kept a diligent eye on initiatives rooted in the recommended practices of juvenile information sharing and are grounded in the core principles that are identified in the Guidelines for Juvenile Information Sharing.
While each JIS Initiative identified varies in structure and partnerships, each site has the core purpose to:
· Develop and implement a collaborative that involves multiple partners and multiple systems
· Work together to improve services for children, youth and families
· Improve information sharing through the efficient and accurate sharing of critical information
The promising NJIS Initiatives (NJISI) listed on this site are just some of the efforts that have been identified by CND. Do you know others? If so, send us an email at: PromisingJIS@thecnd.org
The pilot sites of the National JIS Initiative (NJISI) in FY2009 are addressing all three components of the OJJDP NJISI model. The three components are collaboration, privacy and confidentiality, and technology. The pilot sites, located in the State of Colorado, were selected because of their established collaborative organization and because their consumers have a shared interest in improving procedures and policies of information sharing across state agencies, local agencies, youth and juvenile services and consumers within the community.
CND is delivering technical assistance to the two pilot sites to implement and evaluate the Guidelines for Juvenile Information Sharing, deploy and assess jurisdiction-specific data exchanges and the Information Exchange Package Documentation (IEPD) process using the Juvenile Justice XML Data Model, while enhancing and modifying the data model to ensure its compliance with the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM).
