Criminal Justice Agency Services

The BCA's Minnesota Justice Information Services, or MNJIS, facilitates the access to and exchange of information between sources of criminal justice data. MNJIS also provides technology, training and services for Minnesota criminal justice agencies, better enabling their use of criminal justice information to solve crimes, prosecute offenders and protect Minnesotans and all who visit our state. MNJIS works under the direction of the Criminal and Juvenile Justice Information Advisory Group

Public Services

MNJIS also provides many public services, including fingerprinting, questioned identity assistance, identity theft information for victims and law enforcement and a criminal history database (learn more about public criminal history records).
