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

See below how others are successfully using the Case Management System:

Jefferson County assesses youth

The Juvenile Assessment Center, in a suburb of Denver, uses CMS to keep track of all the information on offenders coming and going through their facility. The CMS is crucial for them to make decisions about what to do with the offenders they receive on a daily basis. Additionally, an interface to the Colorado JIS system pumps information to that system without any user intervention daily so that all the appropriate parties/persons have access to the information they need.

Oklahoma City courts greater efficiency

Oklahoma City Municipal Court implemented CMS in December of 2000. At first, the probation staff of the municipal court only had access to their own database. However, several interfaces to other systems have subsequently been added. Staff members not only have access to the names listed in their database, but with the click of the mouse the CMS application can query two external systems: ACES (OKC Municipal Courts), or the JOLTS (State of Oklahoma Juvenile Online Tracking System) and retrieve the desired information from either database and make it part of their own. Additionally, an unattended interface monitors new and updated information in CMS and forwards that information to the JOLTS system so that the criminal justice community in Oklahoma is better informed.

Nez Perce County strengthens communication

When Nez Perce County, Idaho implemented CMS the county also gave access to law enforcement officials and school personnel. Currently the juvenile probation unit, adult misdemeanor probation, Lewiston Police Department, Prosecutor's office, and school officials all have access to the various pieces of information. The application makes it possible for the director of Court Services to decide who gets to what type of information based upon their security roles. The information sharing has further enhanced the relationships among the probation department, detention center, local police departments, and school districts. When everyone is on the same page, enhanced communication is the result. Currently, the probation staff carries hand-held computers that provide the necessary information for them in the field. Law enforcement/school resource officers carry the same type of hand-held computers that give them access to officer safety warnings and detention orders, which enhances their communication even further.

Canyon County demonstrates effective information sharing

Canyon County has been CMS client since 1998. Initially, Canyon County implemented the software for the juvenile probation office and the juvenile detention center. Over the years as the software expanded, the prosecuting attorney's office was added, then law enforcement, and finally the school personnel. Now, Canyon County has a complete information sharing system that provides the appropriate information to the right parties that even includes the Treasure Valley Gang Task Force. Canyon County probation/detention has complete control over who gets to see what in the software package. Canyon County maintains an average yearly case load of nearly 700 offenders. Additionally, the South West Idaho Juvenile Detention Center maintains a 90 bed facility with approximate daily population of 60 offenders.

Southwest Idaho Juvenile Detention Center

"Ad hoc reports were previously not available to us, fingerprint cards were a burden to print, and probation records used to be inaccessible to my staff in detention. CMS program has allowed us to do much more than we could before. Case Management Systems has been very helpful, addressing concerns promptly and taking the time to learn our needs. I cannot say enough about the support have experienced. I highly recommend CMS and Case Management Systems." Steven Jett, Director
