Established in 1992, the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) division of the FBI is a high-tech intelligence hub linking almost 20,000 law enforcement agencies across the country to a massive database of crime reports, fingerprints, and other agency data. CJIS gives law enforcement, national security, and intelligence community partners the information they need to protect the United States, while preserving civil liberties. CJIS compliance—abiding by strict regulations—is also a necessity when implementing law enforcement software.
