JIEM is both a Web-based modeling tool and a standardized methodology to capture and analyze detailed information regarding the processes, events, agencies, information, and exchange conditions associated with justice information integration. Jurisdictions throughout the nation are using JIEM to document, model, and elaborate their information exchanges, and this tool is increasingly being used in a variety of disciplines across the justice, public safety, emergency/disaster management, intelligence, and homeland security domains. Additionally, JIEM is evolving to tie even more closely to standards development efforts, such as the Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM) and the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM).
JIEM analysis was performed in the four pilot counties for the CJPSIS project establishing the current As-Is environments and the potential To-Be model used as the foundation for the CJPSIS Toolkit development. Refer to the Strategic plan for additional information on how JIEM is utilized in the CJPSIS Initiative.
