Offenders don't stay
in one place.
Why should their cases?
Providing funding for technology,
equipment, and training to assist prosecutors in identifying and
expediting the prosecution of violent juvenile offenders.
A full featured case management, detention population management
application provides more information to prosecutors to make better
decisions concerning the prosecution of violent juvenile offenders.
With an integrated case management information system, prosecutors have
access to information tracked by probation departments and detention
centers concerning criminal history of each offender, programs
participated in, the types of custody arrangements previously tried
with each offender, and in general their compliance with court ordered
Communication between the entities that work with juvenile offenders
can be further enhanced through the use of automated email notification
based upon specified events. A sophisticated integrated information
management system should provide the ability to set events such as the
issuance of warrants for detention on juvenile offenders. Such an event
would subsequently trigger an automatic email to local law enforcement
officers or school resource officers. The sooner notified, the sooner
law enforcement can take action and thereby expediting prosecution of
Providing funding to enable juvenile

officers will be equipped with better information to make better
decisions with offenders he/she supervises. As offenders are monitored
on probation many events can be recorded concerning their compliance
with court orders. Each offender’s compliance, or the lack there of,
can be more readily ascertained with the use of an automated case
management information system.
The JCMS application has the ability to create templates and populate
information in a document (i.e., court report) with information
contained in a database thereby, expediting the composition of
documents. This not only saves each officer time, but also creates more
consistent and complete documentation as a result of the information
being recorded in the system.
Hand held computers that integrate with a probation case management
information system provide the freedom to probation officers to manage
their cases whenever and wherever they happen to be.
Identification is enhanced through the use of a Case Management System.
Persons working with a Case Management information system would have
ready access to images, demographics, address (current and historic),
An integrated system can provide information sharing between the
entities that work with youth in the community: school districts, law
enforcement, prosecutors, treatment providers, etc. When the persons
who work with youth in the community all have the ability to share
information, each of the parties are more informed.
Establishing and maintaining interagency
information-sharing programs that enable the juvenile and criminal
justice systems, schools, and social services agencies to make more
informed decisions regarding the early identification, control,
supervision, and treatment of juveniles who repeatedly commit serious
delinquent or criminal acts.
Enhance interagency information-sharing between probation, detention,
the police departments, and the schools in the community enables these
agencies to make more informed decisions regarding early
identification, control, supervision, and treatment of juveniles who
repeatedly commit serious delinquent or criminal acts. This will be
accomplished through the purchase of juvenile justice case management
software. This software includes a school interface that allows the
probation department to provide the school resource officers with
information deemed appropriate to share and allows the schools to
provide the probation department with information on the juvenile’s
behavior and progress in the school setting.
