The objective of this project was to implement a system to improve the ability of courts to accurately charge and prosecute Driving Under the Influence (DUI) offenders. The system leveraged existing repositories and resources already provided by the Kansas Criminal Justice Information System (KCJIS) data center to help ensure that DUI offenders were appropriately charged and sentenced. As plans for the project evolved, stakeholders and legislators began to see the benefit of automating all disposition reporting and centralizing the dispositions of all offenders.
On April 12, 2016, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced that the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Kansas Department of Transportation were the recipients of the “2015 Best of NEIM” award for this project. This is an annual award that recognizes NIEM implementation projects that demonstrate how intergovernmental collaboration and innovative technology deliver results that improve performance, increase efficiency, and support government transparency.
