The Indiana Supreme Court's e-ticket system has won an honorable mention in the 2008 Best of the Web and Digital Government Achievement Awards given by the Center for Digital Government.

The court's electronic Citation and Warning System (eCWS) was honored in the Government-to-Government category. Winners were recognized for the strides they have made to implement better access and more efficient Web delivery of public services.

The e-ticketing program allows law enforcement to use hand-held devices to scan a bar code on driver's licenses and registration, which gives officers in the field access to accurate records. The system also lets officers immediately produce an electronic ticket. The tickets produced by the officers are then transmitted to a central repository, courts, and the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

The Indiana State Police and 16 other law enforcement agencies are currently using e-ticketing. The Supreme Court recently won a $1.27 million federal grant from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to help pay for equipment for more agencies to use the system.
