The IJIS Institute is a nationally recognized organization that seeks to help the various entities involved in the Criminal Justice System collaborate, share information and improve their day to day operations by helping implement new technology based solutions for the various challenges faced by these agencies. The IJIS Institute was originally started in 1999 by the US DOJ, OJP and BJA as the Industry Working Group. In 2001, the Integrated Justice Information Systems (IJIS) Institute was established as a nonprofit corporation and began focusing its mission on “…having a single voice of industry in the development of new standards and practices in the justice, public safety, and homeland security sectors.” More information on IJIS can be found at www.IJIS.org
From the very beginning of the development of Electronic Warrant Software for use in the State of Louisiana, the St. James Parish Sheriff’s Office has been a partner and proponent of the software. From the early days of development, SJPSO has beta tested the various versions of the application, piloted new programs and been a consistent source of ideas for improvements and additional development. The dedication of SJPSO to helping make solutions like CloudGavel available to the Law Enforcement community in Louisiana and beyond is worthy of this recognition.
