JTrack is a national web-based IT system to enable all 43 police forces in England and Wales and local partner agencies to monitor, track and review their locally identified prolific and other priority offenders across the Criminal Justice System.

The system is funded centrally by the Home Office and is managed by the National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA). We are also working with the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) to ensure that the system continues to meet local needs particularly in the context of the development of local Integrated Offender Management (IOM) approaches.

The integrity, confidentiality and availability of JTrack has been fully tested through an accredited IT healthcheck. There has been no national assessment of the effectiveness of the system in tracking offenders as data are managed locally.
