Welcome to the CONNECT Consortium
CONNECT is a consortium of states dedicated to working closely together to better solve specific information sharing challenges facing the criminal justice community.
We provide a meaningful way for members to work together, pool limited resources, coordinate the creation and deployment of standards-based information sharing tools, and promote the sharing of information across jurisdictional borders to better solve and prevent crimes in their home communities.
The Consortium consists of a structured way for each state's criminal justice information sharing organization to collaborate with their peers to solve specific information sharing challenges by leveraging the Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (GLOBAL) standards.
CONNECT also gives value to the justice and public safety community by publishing lessons learned and sharing the CONNECT artifacts freely with practitioners nationwide. These artifacts are assembled into a "CONNECT ToolKit" for nationwide reuse.
