GW University, IJIS Institute Create Justice-Information Program (12/7)
Thursday, December 07, 2006 | Comments
The George Washington University and the IJIS Institute announced a new graduate study program related to justice information technology. A patchwork of data-collection and sharing methods creates loopholes in information systems through which criminals can slip. IJIS assists local, state, and federal law-enforcement agencies that wish to expand how their data can be used and shared among jurisdictions and works to build consensus among the industry. The GW School of Engineering and Applied Science has partnered with IJIS to introduce a new certificate and degree concentration that combines information technology with data sharing, interoperability, data management, and security in the field of law enforcement and justice. GW will offer the new certificate program in January at its main campus in Foggy Bottom and at the Virginia campus in Ashburn, where IJIS is headquartered. The new IT for Justice and Public Safety (JIT), a 15-credit graduate certificate, examines the issues, needs, and computing in justice information systems. It may also be applied toward a master's degree in computer science, telecommunications and computers, and engineering management.
