ICJIA received a $750,000 grant from the U.S. Office for Victims of Crime to improve and expand InfoNet, Illinois’ central repository for crime victim services data.
Funding will be used to build more automated data reporting tools and collect meaningful service outcome measures to track progress and identify changing circumstances in a victim’s life, including safety and overall well-being.
InfoNet also will receive a new interface that meets data collection and reporting needs of law enforcement and prosecutor-based victim service providers. The interface will allow data collection on victims of gun and gang violence and survivors of homicide, widening InfoNet’s application to all forms of victimization.
InfoNet is a web-based data collection and reporting system used by victim service providers in Illinois. The system is nationally recognized for facilitating standardized data collection and state-level reporting.
