Illinois creates justice IT integration board

Illinois Gov. George H. Ryan earlier this month established the Illinois Integrated Justice Information System Governing Board to plan the statewide integration of justice systems.

Candice Kane, executive director of the Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, will act as chairwoman of the board, which must submit a report to the governor and the legislature by Dec. 21, 2002.

'From the early days of this administration, we have worked to improve criminal justice information systems in Illinois,' Ryan said in a statement. 'The bottom line is that with this information our police officers can make better decisions on the street, our prosecutors will be able to build stronger cases, our judges will make more informed decisions, and Illinois will be a safer place to live.' Ryan said the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks had increased his resolve to advance the integration of justice systems.

The state plans for its law enforcement, judicial and correctional agencies to share data in a timely, secure and efficient manner, officials said.
