Technology

Overview

Technology offers courts a crucial commodity—information—that can help criminal justice agencies make better and quicker decisions, communicate with partner agencies (prosecutors, defense attorneys, social service agencies) and track case outcomes. By building state-of-the-art computer applications, the Center for Court Innovation seeks to speed case processing and improve accountability, ensuring that offenders comply with sanctions and that all partners are on the same page.
