Microsoft Dynamics will give Illinois one of the most advanced criminal justice information systems in the country.
Illinois Department of Corrections (DOC) protects the public from criminal offenders through incarceration, supervision, and rehabilitation. Originally designed for 34,000 inmates, the system now handles more than 49,000. The DOC is continually striving to improve recidivism rates by offering rehabilitation programs to inmates and helping the 28,000 parolees under its watch make a successful re-entry into society.
Governor Pat Quinn has promoted a vision for reforming the DOC to improve public safety and criminal justice in the state. He has signed legislation that aims to amend sentencing credit guidelines and enhance programs for assessing and reforming inmates.
This cutting-edge technology will give Illinois one of the most advanced criminal justice information systems in the country. It will save Illinois' taxpayers millions of dollars while increasing public safety throughout the state.
