Establishing and Maintaining Interagency Information Sharing
(NCJ 178281) March 2000
OJJDP Juvenile Accountability Block Grants Series, Bulletin, 16 page(s)
Slayton, J.
 
Presents strategies and sources for the development of information-sharing programs, details the functional requirements for an effective and efficient program, and identifies policy concerns and key issues in the implementation and maintenance of information-sharing programs. This OJJDP Bulletin, part of the Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG) series, is an overview of what is necessary to establish and maintain an interagency information-sharing program. Agencies building collaborative information-sharing programs must consider several key issues, including possible legal restrictions to information sharing in Federal and State laws, the need for an evaluation system to determine the effectiveness of the information-sharing program, and potential barriers to successful information-sharing programs.
