Two Indiana Supreme Court justices will be on hand in Indianapolis tomorrow for a demonstration of a new, statewide electronic ticketing system.

Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard and Justice Frank Sullivan will join Indianapolis Public Safety Director Scott Newman and law enforcement to show how the new system will work.

Called eCWS - electronic Citation and Warning System - the new mobile system allows police to create tickets electronically and send them to a central location for law enforcement, prosecutors, and courts without additional data entry or the need to read handwritten tickets.

The information is assigned a case number and tracked by Odyssey, the Supreme Court's case management system that was first adopted last year. This new electronic method provides an end-to-end system in which data is input once and can then be shared with multiple users.

The demonstration of the PDA-sized unit begins at 2 p.m. at the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department's Northwest District and Ticket Branch Office, 3821 Industrial Blvd., Indianapolis.

The system is funded in part through an Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant for the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice, and is administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security also provided grant funding.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
