Description

The Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global) Advisory Committee (GAC) is a Federal Advisory Committee to the U.S. Attorney General, providing recommendations on promising national information sharing policies, practices, and technologies to solve problems and improve justice. Through the work of the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and its state, local, and tribal (SLT) partners, taking action based on Global recommendations, groundbreaking progress has been made. However, many of these successes have been in specific areas or within particular lines of the justice business. Today, it is vital to examine the justice system as a whole and develop strategic ways to fundamentally improve how the enterprise collects, shares, and uses information to support critical justice and public safety decision-making. Responding to this need and considering the numerous related advancements over the years, the GAC formally recommended Strategic Solutions to Transform Our Nation’s Justice and Public Safety Information Sharing as a challenge and call to action for its members, partners, and national leaders toward adopting comprehensive information sharing solutions.
