Offenders don't stay in one place.
Why should their cases?

7. Providing funding to enable juvenile courts and juvenile probation offices to be more effective and efficient in holding juvenile offenders accountable and reducing recidivism:

Utilizing an automated integrated case management system, probation 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 CMS 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), etc. 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.
