Description

The Offender-Based State Correctional Information System (OBSCIS) is a computer-based data management tool developed in the late 1970s under the federal Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) for general use within corrections departments in the U.S., though few states have adopted it successfully. This article discusses the implementation of OBSCIS by the Alaska Department of Corrections and describes how OBSCIS is used to manage day-to-day corrections operations and to aid in the shaping of correctional policy.
