Data Integration

Working with law enforcement agencies, prosecuting attorneys, public defenders, and other state agencies dealing with corrections and public safety, the Council is working to expand current successes in allowing these disparate entities to share common information.

Over the past two years, officials in Crisp County and the Cordele Judicial Circuit have developed and successfully piloted a practical and innovative tool that streamlines data entry within the criminal justice system. At the county and judicial circuit level in Georgia, clerks of court, magistrate judges, Superior Court judges, district attorneys, public defenders and law enforcement agencies share the common task of compiling a massive amount of data – much of which is the same information – and storing it on their individual computer systems.

The main purpose of this and other projects is to electronically share information from individual proprietary data sources among the relevant agencies in Georgia, while preserving each agency’s data integrity. The goals of the project are to improve the accuracy of criminal justice records, improve the efficiency and speed of the criminal justice process by enabling each agency to maximize its resources in order to reduce the redundancy and duplication of data entry, to provide access to real-time criminal justice data, to control the jail population, and to reduce unnecessary delay in court process.

As a member of the statewide steering committee overseeing these efforts, the Council hopes to secure the backing of the Governor and the legislature in furthering this goal.
