Getting Started with JJIS, JJPS, and JPAS


Whether you are a new OYA or County Juvenile Department JJIS worker; a worker from a partner agency authorized to use JJPS; or an authorized worker from a contracted service provider using JPAS, there are some basic things to know about JJIS before you get started.

  • As a new user, it is important to familiarize yourself with the JJIS User Security policy, especially understanding your responsibilities and the appropriate use of JJIS for your job.
  • Please review the demos available before you log on to JJIS, JJPS, or JPAS. Select the demo appropriate to the access you are receiving (based on user type).
  • After you have completed the online demo, your local JJIS Security Coordinator will provide you with your user account and log-in information.
