Awards and Recognition
The REJIS Commission (Regional Justice Information Service) is a government entity created to provide information technology products and services to criminal justice and government agencies. REJIS was founded in 1976 under a cooperative agreement between St. Louis City and St. Louis County.
REJIS is located in the city of St. Louis and currently employs over 140 people, mostly in high tech jobs. About 130 of our staff are assigned to our main office with the remaining personnel assigned to our larger customer sites.
The REJIS Commission is a seven member board appointed by the Mayor of the City of St. Louis and the St. Louis County Executive. Commissioners are responsible for overall policy and direction of REJIS. REJIS' General Manager, who is responsible for the day to day operations of REJIS, reports to the Board.
REJIS has about 185 criminal justice and government customers in the greater St. Louis area, and about 135 in the greater Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas areas, that represent a myriad of public sector agencies. Our customers are our partners, and we strive to serve them as a trusted advisor and continually focus on finding solutions for their challenges or problems.
Our services include the development of custom applications, online and batch processing, installation and support of custom and commercially available software, systems integration, custom interfaces, facility management, data center colocation, reselling of commercially available hardware and software, access to remote data bases, networking, training and help desk support.
In addition, REJIS has worked with the Bureau of Justice Statistics in the U.S. Department of Justice on multiple grants for over 20 years. REJIS has supported nationwide studies on the impact of the Brady Act (FIST), recidivism (two different national studies), and tracking of criminal cases through the justice system (OBTS). These projects have given REJIS expertise in the automated translation of general English descriptions found in police and court files to obtain new information, such as offense type, type of conviction, and sentence length.
To better serve our customers, REJIS also provides fee based services to other governmental agencies and the private sector. Members of The Missouri Bar Association use a service called MoBar Net, members of the private security community may use a service called PS Net, and other governmental agencies can use a service called GA Net.
