Building an Information Sharing Environment: Concepts and Tools You Can Use
The national effort to build information sharing environments as called for by Congress and the President is picking up steam as the program manager for the Information Sharing Environment focuses on building out state and regional information sharing environments (ISE). The purpose of this webinar is to introduce the concepts behind ISEs and the tools available to help state and regional executives plan and build them. Tune in to this webinar to learn how to be part of this movement.
Presenters included Paul Wormeli, President, Wormeli Consulting; Kshemendra Paul, Program Manager, White House Information Sharing Environment; and Linda Rosenberg, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.
Justice-to-Health Exchanges: Understanding the Myths Surrounding Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Addressing Challenges to Cross-Domain Information Sharing
Criminal justice leaders recognize the need to exchange justice and health information to ensure the continuity of care for justice-involved individuals. However, fears and misconceptions about federal and state privacy laws have led many to believe that it is difficult (if not impossible) to create information exchanges between these domains. This webinar dispels the “myths” surrounding HIPAA and 42 CFR Part 2 and showcase how states and jurisdictions are overcoming barriers to create safe and secure justice to health exchanges that comply with patient privacy protections.
During this 90 minute webinar, Kate Tipping, JD, public health advisor, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Richard Fiore, ASSURE Project sponsor, State of Alabama; and Becki Goggins, director, law and policy, SEARCH provide an overview of these efforts at the state and national level and lead a facilitated discussion.
The Power of Video: Smart Policing through the Real-Time Crime Center
The world is changing, wireless data is exploding, smart devices are taking over, social networks abound, and video is everywhere! As technology advances, public safety needs to adapt. Real-Time Crime Centers are emerging as the focal point for enabling actionable real time intelligence and information sharing. The ability to enhance officer safety and the need to tap technology as a workforce multiplier is driving smart policing initiatives across the country. This session provides an overview of smart policing best practices while focusing specifically on the Real-Time Crime Center solution as a foundation for safe communities. This presentation also highlights how the Real-Time Crime Center enables the citizen, 911 call taker, CAD Operator, and First Responder through the integration of multiple solutions in one operations environment. Get a jump on the future of mission critical incident response by participating in this session.
Presenting for this webinar are Jason Hutchens, Solutions Engagement Manager in Public Safety at Motorola Solutions, and Tom Miller, former Lieutenant Colonel from the Michigan State Police and current Director of Government Markets, North America Customer Solutions.
Decoding the Alphabet Soup: Enhancing the Nation’s Justice Information Sharing (JIS) Capacity
As a state granting agency, what do you need to understand to make sure justice information sharing investments in your state produce the beneficial outcomes that are intended? How do you know whether technology investments are effective and conducive for communication and meet the data needs of your agencies? Criminal justice agencies that administer Byrne JAG funding (SAAs) across the country are now required to comply with DOJ’s Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (DOJ’s Global) guidelines and recommendations whenever issuing applicable grants. The purpose behind these special conditions is to promote JIS best practices and advance interoperable Information sharing capabilities, to enhance collaboration, to ensure technology investments are cost effective and sustainable, and enable interoperability by minimizing challenges posed by propriety tools and standards.
During this 90 minute webinar, Robert Boehmer, Director of the Institute for Public Safety Partnerships at the University of Illinois at Chicago, NCJA Regional Representative, Chairman of the NCJA State Justice Information Sharing Committee, and Chairman of the Global Advisory Committee; Chris Traver, BJA Senior Policy Advisor for Justice Information Sharing; and David Steingraber, NCJA Senior Policy Advisor provided an overview and facilitated discussion regarding justice information sharing standards, special grant conditions, and the role of the SAA.
New special condition grant language is as follows:
In order to promote information sharing and enable interoperability among disparate systems across the justice and public safety community, OJP requires the grantee to comply with DOJ’s Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (DOJ’s Global) guidelines and recommendations for this particular grant. Grantee shall conform to the Global Standards Package (GSP) and all constituent elements, where applicable, as described at: http://www.it.ojp.gov/gsp_grantcondition.
