Lineage Statement

The Justice Information System (JUSTIN) is an itegrated case management system which means that information about each case is entered only once, and is re-used by various justice agencies as the case moves from initiation through to disposition. JUSTIN supports the core business functions in criminal case processing and is used by RCMP, municipal police, Crown Counsel and Criminal Courts registry staff, Sheriff, Probation Services, Victim/Witness Services, Trial Schedulers, Judicial Case Managers and Corrections staff and some other Justice System partners.
