The Justice Information Management System 2 (JIMS-2) equipment’s been handed over to the Correctional Service Solomon Islands (CSSI) on 26 October 2023 at the Correctional Service Headquarters, Rove, funded by the Australian Government.
The JIMS-2 equipment’s been handed over to CSSI by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Counsellor Governance and Stability Ms Tessa Plueckhahn.
This JIMS-2 equipment’s will support the implementation of JIMS in CSSI and links to other Justice sectors.
CSSI Commissioner Mactus Forau expressed his great appreciation for the generous support of JIMS-2 equipment and this would provide an opportunity for Rove Central Correctional Centre (RCCC) to improve their prisoners information data.
He adds this system captures all elements of prisoners, time spent in a correctional centre including active Case Management and daily recording of such into the system. It is also relevant in relation to information collation, decision making, projecting future needs and organizational data collation system for prisoners served in Correctional Centres. This also includes importantly, possible merging issues in the management of prisoners, such as remand status and most recently, understanding the challenges of overcrowding in the system.
