Program Seeks to Integrate Criminal Justice Computer Systems in NH

A program known as Justice - One Network Environment (J-ONE) that seeks to integrate the computer systems and data of the judiciary, motor vehicle departments, prosecutors, corrections and law enforcement entities from local to state levels is off to successful start, according to state officials.

The goal of the program is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of New Hampshire’s criminal justice agencies, and to make all criminal justice data available electronically to authorized members only.

In one example of the program’s impact, dispositions in “plea-by-mail” cases from the NH Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) are now being reported from the court back to DMV electronically, rather than on paper.

“J-ONE has proven to be a huge undertaking and a major achievement,” said Department of Safety Commissioner John Barthelemes. “Multiple departments and different branches of government came together to take this program off the drawing board and to make it a reality. We find ourselves in a time where needs and demands on state government continue to grow, but not resources. One answer to this challenge is to leverage technology – and that is just what J-ONE does.”

NH Supreme Court Chief Justice Linda Stewart Dalianis applauded J-ONE and acknowledged the years that were dedicated to making it a reality. “J-ONE has been in the works since being authorized by the legislature in 2006,” she said. “Getting us to this point has been a herculean effort on the part of state employees across multiple departments and agencies. We are so grateful for the time and talents they dedicated to this first-of-its kind program in New England.”

“J-ONE also dovetails with the Judiciary’s current NH e-Court Project that has already put small claims, guardianships, juror management and transcript requests successfully online,” Dalianis continued. “Civil matters in both the circuit and superior courts are the next case types scheduled for 2016.”
