Our Justice Information Technology Services Division (JITSD) provides vital Information Technology (IT) infrastructure upon which Montanans and local and state law enforcement agencies rely for timely, accurate information. JITSD manages the IT systems, services, and interfaces to support nearly 800 DOJ employees, 325 statewide county motor vehicle system users, and over 3,000 Criminal Justice Information Network (CJIN) users across the state. The work of JITSD affects all Montanans, because it is vital to nearly every aspect of the Department’s business and mission operations.
JITSD’s vision is comprised of “the four rights.” That means the right information, to the right person, at the right time, to make the right decision. Whether it’s a Montana Highway Patrol Trooper approaching a vehicle, a criminal investigator issuing an Amber Alert, a State Crime Lab technician performing an analysis, a Motor Vehicles customer service worker issuing a driver’s license, or a citizen renewing a vehicle registration online, we know that timely, accurate, information leads to better decisions.
