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. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!

  2. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  3. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  4. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  5. Different rules for different folks....
