Pennsylvania’s Justice Network (JNET) is a secure virtual system for the sharing of justice information by authorized users. JNET is a collaborative effort of municipal, county, state, bordering states and federal justice agencies to build a secure integrated justice system. JNET provides a common on-line environment whereby authorized users can access offender records and other justice information from participating agencies. Based on open Internet/World Wide Web technologies and standards, JNET links information from diverse hardware and software platforms under a common, web-browser interface. Firewalls protect agency networks and systems from unauthorized intrusion.
