The purpose of Integrated Justice Information System is to record and manage justice information for police, courts and corrections from initial arrest and apprehension of a person through all court processes to final disposition including prisoner management.
The Integrated Justice Information System is the core information system supporting justice processes in the Northern Territory, including Domestic Violence Orders.
DEFINITION OF FAMILY AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
No definition is stored, used or referred to in the courts Integrated Justice Information System. Similarly, there is no Domestic Violence flag attached to a court case. However, information entered into Integrated Justice Information System originates in the Police Real-time On-line Management Information System (PROMIS) which adheres to the definition prescribed in the Northern Territory’s Domestic and Family Violence Act (2009).
Aspects of family and domestic violence captured in the data are:
RELATIONSHIP TO DEFINING THE DATA CHALLENGE FOR FAMILY, DOMESTIC AND SEXUAL VIOLENCE (cat. no. 4529.0)
The summary table below is designed to indicate the amount of information available for each of the six elements outlined in Defining the Data Challenge for Family, Domestic and Sexual Violence, 2013 (cat. no. 4529.0). This is a subjective assessment made by the ABS about the data collected and is not an indication of data quality.
The following tables provide a detailed analysis of the availability of specified data elements in the data source. The data items have been grouped into four counting units:
3. Incident/Event; and
Tables are absent from the entry in cases where the data source contains no data items which relate to the particular counting unit/s.
Please note: This data source does not contain any data items relevant to this counting unit.
Data are entered into Integrated Justice Information System by police officers or court clerks. Clerks are trained to follow procedures for consistent and accurate recording. The checking process is a stringent one with well documented procedures.
The ‘principal penalty’ rule is used in Integrated Justice Information System. Where an individual is before the court for several offences, the penalty against which his/her case is recorded is the more serious one, for example, armed robbery and breach of DVO would reflect the penalty for armed robbery.
SCOPE / TARGET POPULATION
All persons who have a Domestic Violence Order given to them by the Northern Territory courts.
Where an individual is before the court for several offences, only the more serious penalty is recorded. As no Domestic Violence flag is attached to a court case and individuals with a more serious concurrent offence will not be counted as a Domestic Violence offence in Integrated Justice Information System data.
