Juvenile Justice Information System

What is JJIS?

JJIS logo
A Shared Information System for Oregon Juvenile Justice

The Juvenile Justice Information System (JJIS) is a statewide-integrated electronic information system designed, developed, and implemented to support a continuum of services and shared responsibility among all members of the juvenile justice community.  In a collaborative partnership between the Oregon Youth Authority (OYA) and Oregon´s county juvenile departments, JJIS is administered by the State of Oregon through OYA.
Access to JJIS is granted to OYA and the county juvenile departments pursuant to signed Intergovernmental Agreements. Other public and private agencies that work with youth served by the county juvenile departments and the OYA are external partners. JJIS partners support appropriate access to JJIS for research projects that support county and statewide research priorities. Each research project is approved on an individual basis by the JJIS Steering Committee.  Interested parties should request access to JJIS through an appropriate representative of OYA or county juvenile department.
