What people are saying
“For 20 years, IJIS has never lost site of its purpose...leveraging technology and information sharing to protect our communities.”

- Stephen L. Morris / Former Assistant Director, CJIS Division, FBI; Account Executive, IBM
What people are saying
“I am continually impressed with IJIS's dedication to efforts that promote the fair and objective administration of justice. IJIS knows that technology solutions don't just collect and distribute data - they provide the information we need to truly understand the impact of crime and violence on real people. I am honored to be associated with an organization committed to improving public safety and reducing barriers to equity and equality across the justice system.”

- Erica Smith / Unit Chief, Law Enforcement Incident-Based Statistics Unit
What people are saying
“Public safety agencies are faced with limited resources to apply in reaction to a constantly changing ecosystem of policy and technology changes. IJIS has afforded me the opportunity to represent my agency and my state in partnering with policy makers, fellow practitioners, and technology companies. This has, in turn, allowed us to influence that ecosystem in some small ways, making us more proactive that reactive with those same limited resources.”

- Joe Mandala / Chief Information Officer, Kansas Bureau of Investigation
What people are saying
“Advancing public sector technology and data sharing requires not only deep technical expertise, but also strong commitment to, and thoughtful understanding of, partnerships. During my tenures as Executive Director of APCO and iCERT, and now as the leader of a consultancy, I have witnessed firsthand the positive impacts the IJIS Institute has had by consistently demonstrating the rare combination of prowess in both partnering and leading.”
