Working with Orange County judges and clerk through the end of 2012 into 2013, Odyssey went live on January 22, 2013. Beginning to track all court case and financial information in a case management system instead of on paper brings its own set of challenges, but Orange County users have risen to the occasion. Since there was no data to convert, users are playing ‘catch up’ in getting all open cases entered into Odyssey.
JTAC’s goal for 2012 was to have a total of 300 law enforcement agencies trained on the electronic Citation and Warning System (eCWS) by year-end. The news is even better. JTAC actually surpassed that number, and a total of 304 law enforcement agencies were trained by December 31, 2012.
Over the past four months, JTAC has been working with three Indiana counties to deploy the Supervision module of the Odyssey Case Management System.
Odyssey was deployed to the Circuit and six Superior courts in Elkhart County over the Labor Day weekend! Over 275 county users were trained on the software prior to deployment, and the entire Odyssey deployment team was on site for the first week of go-live. Approximately 600,000 cases were converted from the courts’ previous legacy system into the Odyssey case management system for Elkhart County.
JTAC is on track to complete eCWS (electronic Citation and Warning System or e-tickets) training for over 300 law enforcement agencies by the end of 2012! To date, 62 sheriff’s departments, 225 local agencies and 3 state agencies are utilizing eCWS.
