INSLAW's CJIS for Corrections software product is a
comprehensive inmate management information system that supports
the operations of state and local detention and correctional
facilities. As an integrated inmate information system, CJIS for
Corrections is a powerful tool that assists correctional
administrators in managing their inmate populations, controlling
overcrowding, and reducing risks within the facility. Designed to
track an inmate from booking to release, the system provides a
full audit trail of all in-custody activity, including
detention/commitment order and charge tracking, classification
and housing assignment, receipt and release of property, medical
records, inmate accounts, commissary purchases and inventory,
program participation, and incident tracking.
CJIS for Corrections
A unique person I.D. number is assigned to each person and is
linked to a complete file of information for that person. This
includes physical descriptors, aliases, prior arrests and/or
convictions, known associates, addresses, warrants, cautions,
etc. The system automatically summarizes the activity for the
person across his or her active and disposed cases, including
Intake and Booking
This CJIS component records information about each booking,
identifying the person taken into custody, the date and time of
booking, inmate type (federal, state, etc.), and whether the
inmate is an adult or juvenile. Because a permanent I.D. number
is used, information regarding a person does not need to be
re-entered for each booking. Additionally, an Inmate Locator
record tracks a person's entry into and exit from a facility.
Movements within the facility for activities such as recreation,
sick call, law library, etc., can be tracked as well.
Classification and Housing
Due to differences in classification and housing assignment
criteria from one facility to another, INSLAW designed this
component to be tailorable to each facility's unique
requirements. The criteria are stored in tables for easy
maintenance. Strict database controls are maintained between the
inmate's classification level and the security level of the
housing assignment. A warning message is returned if the housing
assignment is not appropriate for the inmate's classification.
The user can override the warning but must record the reason for
