Criminal Justice Services Command

The Bureau of Identification promotes public safety by collecting, maintaining, and disseminating accurate, timely, and complete criminal history information. Records relating to more than five million fingerprint files help ensure the identification of individuals and potential suspects through the use of the advanced ABIS.

The Program Administration Bureau provides administrative and operational support for statewide criminal justice programs as well as departmental records. The Bureau is responsible for ensuring users are aware of policy, training, compliance, and certification requirements for access to and use of criminal justice information systems, including the Law Enforcement Agencies Data Systems (LEADS), Illinois Integrated Justice Information System (IIJIS), Illinois Citizen Law Enforcement Analysis Reporting System (ICLEAR), and National Incident Based Reporting System/Uniform Crime Reporting (NIBRS/UCR).
