The criminal component of CJIS for Courts tracks
any type of criminal case handled by the court from initiation to
disposition. All information unique to the case is recorded here.
This includes the defendant's name, aliases and legal status,
charges, bond and surety/depositor data, defense attorney and
prosecutor, judge, past and future scheduled events, evidence and
exhibits, witnesses, dispositions, sentences and appeals
information. On inquiry, the system summarizes the activity for
each case by displaying the status of the case, the date and
nature of the last event in the case, and the date and nature of
the next scheduled event, and the number of defendants.
CJIS Criminal Case Management
CJIS for Courts can track multiple defendants in a case. Each
defendant is assigned a unique person I.D. under which complete
information such as physical descriptors, aliases, prior arrests
and/or convictions, associates, addresses, etc., is tracked. The
person I.D. provides a single file on each person, showing all of
his or her activity with the court. Summaries of all activity for
the person are generated automatically by CJIS. A user can see at
a glance the total number of active and disposed cases, the
number of active warrants, monies due, next scheduled payment
amount and date, and the status of the defendant in the overall
system of justice.
All past and future scheduled events are recorded in CJIS for
