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.
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.
JTAC staff will be on site in Greene, Ohio and Washington counties during the next few weeks to prepare for the installation of our Jury Management System. More than a third of Indiana counties are already using the system. Greene County is also using JTAC’s Marriage License e-File system and Ohio County received four used computers thanks to JTAC’s efforts to find courts and clerks needed equipment.

JTAC was host to the meeting of the Marion County Small Claims Court judges last Friday. This was one of many meetings to plan deployment of Odyssey to Marion County Small Claims Courts. The judges are working with JTAC to streamline and standardize as many court processes as possible. These improvements will benefit both the courts and the public. Franklin Township staff just completed their first week of training. Go-live for Franklin Township is December 1st.
