Counties test expanded protective order registry

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Eight Indiana counties will be the first to use the state's expanded electronic protective order registry. The expansion is a result of a partnership between the Indiana Supreme Court, law enforcement, clerks, and domestic violence groups.

The expanded registry will allow a victim to complete required forms online with the help of a domestic violence advocate, which are then printed and taken to the county clerk for filing. Once the judge issues the protective order, the information will be sent to local, state, and federal law enforcement.

Elkhart and St. Joseph counties will kick off the pilot program July 27; Allen, Grant, Madison, Marion, Tippecanoe, and Wabash counties will also be the first to use the expanded registry.

"We are strong supporters of the registry and want people to understand this is more than a technology upgrade - it will allow our volunteers to give victims the assistance they need and link them to community resources," said Laura Berry Berman, executive director of the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence, in a statement released by the court.

The Supreme Court received a $135,235 grant from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute to improve the electronic protection order registry. More information on the registry is available on the Judicial Technology and Automation Committee's Web site.

  2. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  3. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  4. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  5. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.
