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.
An update to the INcite BMV application released on Tuesday, Nov. 25, will greatly improve the way SR-16 information is transmitted to CATS. Specifically, the updated process will:
- Catch data errors before they are transmitted to the BMV and reported back on the BMV activity reports
- Reduce the time it takes for errors to be reported back to the courts
- Include a new, detailed error report that users can view, save and print in a PDF format
- Better validate the data being transmitted
- Recognize several new data fields used by the courts

Legislation that takes effect Jan. 1, 2009 transferred the responsibility to pay for juvenile placements and services from Indiana counties to state government. The legislation also requires probation officers to send specific information to the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) for caseworkers to review. In partnership with DCS, JTAC developed an INcite (Indiana Court Information Technology Extranet) application that probation officers can use to interface with DCS ’ Indiana Child Welfare Information System. JTAC’s system is available to probation officers free of charge.
Already in use in 68 Indiana counties, use of the Protection Order Registry continues to climb. There are currently 25,127 active orders in the registry and a total of 3,770 orders were issued in October.
The POR team provides continuing support and training and has held recent sessions in Cass, Dearborn, Grant, Hamilton and Steuben counties.
Grant County began using the Protection Order Registry on November 1, 2008, making it the 68th county to install the system. JTAC’s Protection Order Registry is available to counties without charge.
