Ashburn, VA., April 1, 2020- The IJIS Institute's Blockchain Task Force recently published a white paper on the use of blockchain technology for protective orders.

The whitepaper entitledProtective Order Use Case Assessment,aims to help those in information management and exchange roles within the Justice and Public Safety communities understand how blockchain technology may address challenges faced when managing and sharing information among agencies at the local, state, and federal levels.

The task force set out to:

  • Evaluate whether distributed ledger technologies (i.e., blockchain technologies) can assist participants in the process to more efficiently and effectively issue and disseminate protection orders, as well as address the challenges related to security, authority, validity, and auditability.
  • Provide a generic use case evaluation framework to help practitioners in roles related to records management and information sharing determine whether blockchain technology should be considered when evaluating proposed changes to current processes and systems.

The Blockchain Task Force is comprised of 13 subject matter experts from prominent organizations like the National Center for State Courts, Analysts, Motorola Solutions, IBM, Global Justice Solutions, Thompson | Finn LLC, CorrectTech, Search, Emory University, Missouri State Highway Patrol, the City of Livermore Police Department, and the IJIS Institute.
