Earlier this year, JTAC received a letter of support from the Clerk’s Association for the purpose of applying for a grant to enhance the Marriage License eFiling application. Due in part to your support, we received notification in April that the grant was awarded. The grant funds will be used to enhance the system in two specific ways.
JTAC has recently created an input screen for the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH). The ISDH began using this screen earlier this year and has been entering into INcite data from Record of Marriage forms received from the counties. They are currently working on eliminating a backlog of forms and entering records dating back to 2006. If you are using the Marriage License eFiling application, you may start seeing these records in your search results.
JTAC is currently working to upgrade the INcite structure in order to improve the functionality and ease of use. The new structure of INcite will allow JTAC to make the system more user-friendly to courts and clerks and to make the system operate with a variety of browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and more. While the code and appearance of INcite will change, the various programs will remain intact. The Marriage License eFile application was selected to be the first of the INcite applications to be converted to this new technology.
The Indiana Supreme Court’s electronic Citation and Warning System (eCWS) has received an honorable mention in the prestigious 2008 Best of the Web and Digital Government Achievement Awards given by the Center for Digital Government. The eCWS system was honored in the Government-to-Government category.
eCWS spreading - 17 law enforcement agencies, including the Indiana State Police, are now using eCWS. To see a demo of the system, go to: http://courts.in.gov/jtac/programs/ecws.html
Good news – Law enforcement agencies in Odyssey Phase II counties will receive equipment to deploy JTAC’s electronic Citation and Warning System (eCWS) thanks to a $1.27 million grant from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
