Case management system to get new features

January 1, 2008
The Indiana Supreme Court is investing $1.1 million to add computer features to its case management system being implemented statewide in the coming years.

Adding to the millions already invested in the state's largest-ever technology project, the high court has decided to purchase a supervision module for its Odyssey Case Management System, currently in place in Monroe County and the Marion County Small Claims Court in Washington Township; it will be launched in a handful of other counties by early next year.

Justice Frank Sullivan, who oversees the project led by the court's Judicial Technology and Automation Committee, announced the plan today at the Probation Officers' Professional Association of Indiana's monthly meeting.

Some key features of this new module will include allowing police to have summary information about probationers' cases, producing state mandated reports to track recidivism and drug testing, linking a probation case to any related court cases, and assessing and collecting fees, fines, and costs associated with the probation case.

Delivery is expected by next summer, according to a news release from the Supreme Court.
