Hamilton County to start using Odyssey

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Hamilton County will join nearly 40 other courts and 13 counties when it begins using Odyssey, a statewide case management system provided by the Indiana Supreme Court. Odyssey will connect the Hamilton County courts and clerk to the network of other county courts, clerks, law enforcement, and state agencies.

It also makes court information available to the public online for free.

Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard, Justice Frank Sullivan Jr., Hamilton Superior Court Judge William J. Hughes and Hamilton County Clerk Peggy Beaver will be on hand at the county's historic courthouse Tuesday morning for the implementation of the system.

Since Hamilton and Owen counties use the same type of CMS, Owen County started using Odyssey earlier this year so the state could learn about the data conversion before adding the larger Hamilton County, according to Mary DePrez, director and counsel for trial court technology, Indiana State Supreme Court, Division of State Court Administration's Judicial Technology and Automation Committee.

Costs to implement Odyssey are covered by JTAC from the proceeds of a court filing fee dedicated to the project by the General Assembly. The system has been designed to save taxpayer money by reducing paperwork and eliminating multiple data entries.

Odyssey was first installed in December 2007 in 10 Indiana courts on a pilot basis. The system will eventually connect all of Indiana courts' case management systems.

A thorough background check on the teachers or any other other new employees must be performed to choose the best and quality people. Those who are already employed in the past should also be checked for best precaution. The future of kids can be saved through this simple process.

  4. My parents took advantage of the fact that I was homeless in 2012 and went to court and got Legal Guardianship I my 2 daughters. I am finally back on my feet and want them back, but now they want to fight me on it. I want to raise my children and have them almost all the time on the weekends. Mynparents are both almost 70 years old and they play favorites which bothers me a lot. Do I have a leg to stand on if I go to court to terminate lehal guardianship? My kids want to live with me and I want to raise them, this was supposed to be temporary, and now it is turning into a fight. Ridiculous

  5. Here's my two cents. While in Texas in 2007 I was not registered because I only had to do it for ten years. So imagine my surprise as I find myself forced to register in Texas because indiana can't get their head out of their butt long enough to realize they passed an ex post facto law in 2006. So because Indiana had me listed as a failure to register Texas said I had to do it there. Now if Indiana had done right by me all along I wouldn't need the aclu to defend my rights. But such is life.
