ABSTRACT: JDIS consolidates four USMS applications: Warrant Information Network (WIN),
Prisoner Tracking System (PTS), Automated Prisoner Scheduling System (APSS), and Automated
Booking System (ABS) to produce a centralized database containing the majority of prisoner data
records collected by the USMS. JDIS is currently in development mode.
PURPOSE: The purpose of JDIS is to have one database that can be accessed to reveal complete
prisoner records of all prisoners who are in custody or have a federal warrant issued or are
scheduled for a move.
ACCESS CONSTRAINTS: All records in JDIS are protected from unauthorized access through
appropriate administrative, physical, and technical safeguards. These safeguards include
restricting access to those with a need to know to perform their official duties, using locks and
alarm devices, passwords and/or encrypting data communications.
USE CONSTRAINTS: Users of JDIS will be restricted to only those privileges necessary to
perform assigned tasks.
AGENCY PROGRAM: The USMS is charged with ensuring the effective operation of the
judicial system. JDIS will be the primary information system tool to accomplish this.
SOURCES OF DATA: Prisoner records in JDIS will be entered as a result of data provided by
the Federal, State, and local criminal justice agencies, the courts, medical care professionals,
public and private organizations, witnesses, informants, and other persons interviewed during
