On April 25th the clerk staff in Shelby County entered their first case record into Odyssey, and in doing so joined a growing number of Indiana courts using the Indiana Supreme Court’s data-sharing software. With the addition of Shelby County’s Circuit and two Superior courts, 89 courts in 30 counties now utilize Odyssey’s electronic record keeping system to help manage their court case information. In 2010 Shelby County processed approximately 11,000 new case filings. JTAC staff have been on site in Shelby County for the past several months working alongside the clerk and court staff to help them with data conversion and software implementation, and training them on the functionalities available in Odyssey. As an added bonus, Shelby County’s decision to transition from their former case management system to Odyssey makes it possible for case records to be available to the public free of charge via the Internet.

The deployment of Odyssey in Shelby County was executed under a federal grant and included the purchase of new computer equipment valued at over $15,000.
Thank you to Judges Charles D. O’Connor, Jr., Jack A. Tandy and David N. Riggins, Clerk Vicki Franklin and all the clerk and court staff for their time, assistance and cooperation in the successful deployment of Odyssey in Shelby County.
