Working Groups


IJIS Institute Advisory Committees have working groups to handle specific topics and deliverables and task forces to tackle shorter-term issues. Both working groups and task forces will report to the Advisory Committee to which they belong.

Person Centric Data Modeling Working Group

Sharing of personal information is critical to tie-together a person’s involvement in the criminal/civil justice ecosystem. Additionally, this information is subject to policy constraints, will help the entire criminal/civil justice system assess and focus on outcomes – including reducing re-incarceration rates. This group’s main priority is to create a model that focuses on a person’s involvement across the criminal/civil justice system and illustrates the view of a single person’s multiple episodes of system involvement, across a lifetime.
