How do I request access to the AAJC?

AAJC representatives may reach out to your agency to collect the information required to access the AAJC, or you may request access yourself. The AAJC representative may contact your agency via your SMSS account, correspondence, e-mail, or telephone. The DOJ will need to confirm your agency information and Custodian of Records (COR).
