JTAC has worked with Marion County Traffic Court staff to transfer e-ticket data produced by Indiana State Police to the county’s case management system called JUSTIS. JTAC’s award-winning electronic Citation and Warning System allows a ticket to be created at the roadside—no handwriting—and then transferred to a central repository, eliminating the need for double clerical work and extra data entry. Marion County Traffic Court will also begin using JTAC’s Odyssey Case Management System early next year, and staff training is scheduled to begin next week.
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.
Marion County Superior Court judges held a judicial retreat Friday, and as part of the day’s agenda, they met with JTAC representatives to discuss the implementation of Odyssey CMS and other JTAC initiatives. Mary DePrez, JTAC’s Director, reviewed the successful implementation of the Protection Order Registry in Marion County and thanked the judges for their hard work and cooperation in making that project so successful.
The Indiana Supreme Court’s electronic Citation and Warning System (eCWS) was honored with the first place Cygnus 2008 Innovation Award for Software at the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conference in San Diego, California earlier this month.
Thirty-nine Indiana law enforcement agencies are now using Indiana’s Electronic Citation and Warning System (eCWS) to process traffic tickets and other citations and warnings; and another 15 agencies are scheduled to receive training in preparation for deployment of the system.
