Vermont Justice Information Sharing System

The Vermont Justice Information Sharing System (VJISS) is a statewide portal used to share justice information between and among authorized users and systems.  It is designed to promote data-driven justice decisions, as well as enhance the effectiveness of justice policies and practices throughout the State of Vermont.   VJISS provides a suite of statewide data and information sharing tools to justice professionals and other stakeholders in support of more effective strategic, tactical, and operational decisions. For more information about analytics, please visit the Statistical Analysis Center page.

VJISS Search

VJISS Search allows authorized users to search incident records in real-time for all law enforcement agencies in Vermont. Users can simultaneously query multiple systems on different elements such as name, incident number, vehicle, location, person identifiers, and/or demographics. Search is designed to enhance investigations, promote officer safety, and ensure the swift apprehension and timely consequences for criminal offenders.


VJISS Alert allows authorized users to sign up for email notifications alerting them when new incident records are created that match certain criteria. Users can currently subscribe to notifications based on first name, last name, and/or date of birth. This notification system is designed to enhance case management efficiencies for justice partners, as well as improve criminal activity and recidivism tracking.

VJISS Exchange

VJISS Exchange allows authorized IT systems to exchange data between and among one another, which is especially critical when the systems are disparate and unique. This technology is designed to automatically push and pull data from one system to another based on certain criteria. It allows one justice agency to pull data from another justice agency and incorporate it into their own computer system for tactical and operational purposes.
