Last Tuesday, JTAC held the August Stakeholder meeting. Representatives from the Department of Corrections, Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, the Indiana Judicial Center and Judge Jeff Dywan, Lake County, were in attendance.
Mary DePrez provided an update on the ‘Public Access’ pilot for the Protection Order Registry and recent grant awards. She also mentioned two recent awards: A ‘First Place’ Best Practices Award by the Association of Transportation Safety Information Professionals; and the Peter K. O’Rourke Special Achievement Award for JTAC’s positive impact on traffic safety. Both awards were a result of the successful partnership with Tyler Technologies, Inc., the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, the Indiana State Police, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and numerous judges, clerks and local law enforcement agencies for working together to make the eCWS/Odyssey/BMV data exchange model a nationally recognized model.
Donna Edgar gave an Odyssey deployment update. Since the July Stakeholder meeting, Owen County and 4 Superior Courts in St. Joseph County started to use Odyssey. Donna also ‘unveiled’ the Odyssey Supervision module that has been under development since last Fall. The application is undergoing rigorous testing and should be ready to deploy in the coming months. Dylan Vester also demonstrated the latest eCWS release for the handheld devices. The eCWS team is expected to begin testing next week and deployment of this release will begin in early September.
The meeting concluded promptly at 4:00! Contact Mary Kronoshek at 317-234-2710 or email@example.com if you would like to receive a reminder for the monthly Stakeholder meeting.
