Alabama Justice Information Commission

Providing Criminal Justice Information Policy Since 1975

The Alabama Justice Information Commission, originally known as the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center Commission, was created by the State Legislature in 1975 to establish, develop and operate a Center and computer information system for the interstate and intrastate accumulation, storage, retrieval, analysis and dissemination of vital information relating to certain crimes, criminals and criminal activity. In 2015 with the creation of ALEA, the Center was merged into ALEA as the SBI Criminal Justice Information Services Division (SBI CJIS). The Commission continues today as an independent body to establish rules and polices to govern the use of criminal justice and public safety information within the State of Alabama. SBI CJIS performs the operational mandates of the Commission. (See §§41-9-590, et seq., AL Code 1975)
