ALEN trials are reserved for criminal justice agencies (CJA) in the public or private sector and are subject to qualification prior to the start of a trial. A CJA is defined as a court, a governmental agency, or any subunit of a governmental agency which performs the administration of criminal justice pursuant to a statute or executive order and which allocates a substantial part of its annual budget to the administration of criminal justice. State and federal Inspectors General Offices are included. Trials can be extended to noncriminal justice agencies (NCJA) in both the public or private sector upon review. The general definition of a NCJA is an entity or any subunit thereof that provides services primarily for purposes other than the administration of criminal justice.
