JTAC staff visits courts all over Indiana, and whether they are there to install the Odyssey Case Management System, e-tickets, our Protection Order Registry or another program, they look at how court and clerk staff do their jobs. As we work with local courts, we often learn how working on one issue can help solve another.
Here’s just one example: JTAC is partnering with the Indiana Public Defender Council (IPDC) to develop a statewide Public Defender System. Initial meetings have identified about 150 requirements. We’re still in the early stages, but our goal is to provide an application that meets these requirements and seamlessly interfaces with Odyssey. This will eliminate several data entry tasks and enhance information sharing.
Last week, as we worked to deploy Odyssey in DeKalb County, we learned Public Defenders there have historically had access to both the current case management system and the document imaging system. They could pull up and print court orders remotely from their offices. We have added this functionality to the list of requirements to consider as we go forward with the statewide project.
If your county has a process you want to share, please tell JTAC! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with “Local Process” in the subject line.
