The term often used to describe information sharing across various justice disciplines is "integration," i.e., the application of technology to improve information management and information sharing between justice enterprise agencies at all levels of government. Supporting the endeavors of the justice community to electronically share information is the focus of the Global Justice Information Network Federal Advisory Committee and the OJP and COPS technology initiatives described in this document. Information technology initiatives are briefly profiled for the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the National Institute of Justice, the Bureau of Justice Assistance, COPS, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Office for Victims of Crime, and the Violence Against Women Office. The appendixes contain a listing of partnerships and affiliations; the Bureau of Justice Assistance's information technology initiative: vision, mission, goals, and objectives; a website guide; and a glossary.
