cjis: CJIS University

Welcome to CJIS Academy, a new training and educational program for CJIS projects. CJIS Academy will include several different types of educational programs, both for internal CJIS employees and stakeholders in the CJIS Community.
CJIS Community Outreach
To improve communications with the CJIS Community about CISS as well as other CJIS projects, CJIS began reaching out to the Community to assess its needs. It was soon determined that additional education was necessary to better inform stakeholders and end users, and alleviate misconceptions and fears about the CISS project.

CJIS began by providing informational programs for interested stakeholders, which include onsite visits to educate users on different aspects of the CISS project and how it specifically impacts their work. CJIS will also conduct Community workshops on technical and business practices related to CISS as the project progresses.

On January 7, 2014, Jeanine Allin, CJIS Public Safety Liaison, gave a presentation to the Coventry Police Department on the Connecticut Information Sharing System (CISS). The presentation described the background of CJIS and the reasons for the development of CISS as a comprehensive, state-wide information sharing system for Connecticut. Allin spoke about the major components of CISS, including Information Exchanges, Search Releases and Workflow Waves. Allin also talked about the CISS Community Portal, security and support plans, and CJIS Academy, the new CJIS educational and community outreach program. The twenty minute presentation, attended by sixteen police officers and two staff members, ended with a question and answer session.

CISS Training
Because training will be required before a user can login and use CISS, CJIS is working on several options for stakeholder instruction. As the CISS project begins its releases, training modules will conveniently be available online or in a classroom setting at a training facility (for those who need Police Officer Standings and Training (POST) certification).
CJIS Training
CJIS is also providing training sessions for new and current CJIS employees. Internal instruction will focus on improving technical knowledge on selected projects. This knowledge will be essential for formulating business analysis and technical support of all of the CJIS projects.
OBTS Training
The training program will also include certification classes for OBTS.
