SEPT. 13—Linda Rosenberg recently was appointed director of Pennsylvania's Justice Network, the commonwealth's integrated criminal justice system.

JNET is an intranet that connects the electronic databases of the state's criminal justice organizations to make it easier for them to share information. Only approved employees, such as state police officers, can access the system with a digital authorization certificate.

Rosenberg said her goal is to expand JNET to all 67 counties as well as municipal criminal justice agencies within the state. Aside from state agencies, only 14 counties in the commonwealth participate in the network.

Rosenberg received a master's degree from Robert Morris College in Pittsburgh. She is a 10-year veteran of public service for the commonwealth and most recently was the information technology manager for Pennsylvania's Commission on Crime and Delinquency. In that position, she oversaw planning and management for all IT functions in an agency of 105 employees. From 1992 to 1997, Rosenberg was manager of PCCD's Computer Laboratory and Training Center.

Rosenberg served on several JNET subcommittees during the past few years.

"I've worked my whole career in assisting to automate systems within the criminal justice system," Rosenberg said. "Clearly, JNET is an extension of my goals."
