Catalog of Services

The Catalog of Services lists MNJIS services and tools available primarily to criminal justice agencies. Most services and tools have eligibility requirements set by law or BCA policy. As a result, the BCA must approve all requests for services.

Joint Powers Agreement

Before any new tool or service can be added, a Joint Powers Agreement must be in place. Below are sample resolutions for your use in obtaining city or county authorization to enter into a Joint Powers Agreement.

If you have any questions about this process, contact the BCA Service Desk.
