Juvenile Justice Information System
Hawaii’s Juvenile Justice Information System (JJIS) is a statewide information system that combines juvenile offender information from the police, prosecutors, Family Court, and the Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility for use by the participating agencies in tracking juvenile offenders. The JJIS is also the repository for statewide information on runaway and missing children.
Information in the JJIS includes juveniles’ first exposure to the justice system and extends through prosecution, adjudication, and incarceration. With this comprehensive information, agencies can track juvenile offenders through the justice system and make informed decisions that balance community safety with the objective of restoring as many juveniles as possible to productive citizenship.
The JJIS is used by police officers, probation officers, judges, prosecutors, and correctional workers who need to know the status of individual juveniles at any time or point in the juvenile justice process. The JJIS provides background information on arrest and court data, demographic data, programs and social services provided.
