Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2014, $245,146)

The FY 2014 Justice Information Sharing (JIS) Solutions Implementation Program is funded under the Edward Byrne Memorial Competitive Grant Program (Byrne Competitive Program), the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program, or external transfer from the Program Manager for the Information Sharing Environment (PMISE). It is authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2014, Pub. L. No.113-76. BJA funds will support the implementation of justice information sharing solutions that address critical challenges currently faced by state, local, and tribal criminal justice agencies. The JIS solutions implemented under this program will support criminal justice policies, practices, and programs that are data-driven and evidence-based.

The Pennsylvania Justice Network (JNET) will improve information sharing capabilities by promoting direct system exchange between laboratories and justice systems within Cumberland County. By using health and justice standards, the JNET will enable brokered exchanges, using a Global Reference Architecture conformant web service, to reduce the administrative processing time of laboratory results.
