Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $50,000)

The State Justice Statistics (SJS) Program is designed to maintain and enhance each state's capacity to address criminal justice issues through collection and analysis of data. The SJS Program provides support to each state to coordinate and conduct statistical activities within the state, conduct research to estimate impacts of legislative and policy changes, and serve as a liaison in assisting BJS to gather data from respondent agencies within their states.

Under the SJS Program, the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) proposes to assist the Judicial Technology and Automation Committee (JTAC) with making enhancements to ICOR (Indiana On-line Court Reporting) that will improve the collection and publishing of data for all case types including criminal cases. The project's primary focus will be to enhance and increase access to court data. JTAC will work to improve the current Internet infrastructure, enhance the user experience, improve security, increase the amount of criminal data submitted electronically, and make corresponding website enhancements. Funds will also be used toward the SAC Director's travel expenses to attend the JRSA spring 2012 Meeting of State Criminal Justice Agencies in Washington, DC. (CA/NCF)
