The Waushara County Sheriff’s Department, Douglas County Sheriff’s Department and Greendale Police Department are the latest law enforcement agencies that are connected to the Justice Gateway, a web-based search tool that allows law enforcement professionals to access shared justice information across the state.
The Justice Gateway links separate law enforcement and state agency systems through a common online interface, providing access to information such as arrest records, incident reports and wanted notices. Sharing information across jurisdictions helps officers track criminal activity, collaborate with each other, and build safer communities for Wisconsin residents.
OJA is pleased to welcome these three law enforcement agencies onto the Justice Gateway. Twenty-one additional law enforcement agencies are in the process of connecting their records management system to the Justice Gateway.
The Justice Gateway has enjoyed strong growth since its launch in 2007. As of today, the Gateway has 4,450 users from 420 different law enforcement agencies. Nine million records contributed by 262 different local law enforcement agencies are accessible through the Justice Gateway.
The Justice Gateway is part of the Wisconsin Justice Information Sharing program, administered by the Office of Justice Assistance.
