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 fugitive investigations.
