On January 26, 2011, the Carroll County Probation Department went live with Odyssey Supervision, becoming the 10th probation department to implement the software. Chief Probation Officer Justin Sheagley and his staff began entering live cases after two days of training and JTAC staff remained on site through most of the week for support. The Carroll County Probation Department will use the application to manage adult and juvenile probation cases, as well as home detention supervisions. They are replacing a legacy case management system with Odyssey Supervision and will now have a more efficient means for collecting probation fees and gathering quarterly report data. Additionally, the seamless integration with Odyssey Case Manager will allow the staff to have easier access to court case information. JTAC would like to thank the Carroll County probation staff for their patience and hard work to facilitate the exciting move to this 21st century case management system.
In the coming weeks JTAC will be working with the Gas City Court Probation Department and Posey Circuit and Superior Court probation departments, as they become the next agencies to make the transition to Odyssey Supervision.
