Courts' Criminal Court Information System Receives Improvements, Gets Closer to eCourt Vision

- The Criminal Court Information System, the courts' primary criminal information system, recently received improvements to provide faster, web-based processing of data by all court officials. These improvements were made by the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts [AOC] with funding provided by the State Justice Institute [SJI].
[SJI was established by Congress in 1984 to direct grant funds toward improving the quality of justice in the United States.]
This system is used primarily by clerks of superior court to process the approximately 2.5 million cases filed each year in North Carolina. The AOC made these changes as part of its overall vision to modernize the information system and to further the electronic processing of court cases, referred to as "eCourt." These enhancements are being tested in pilot sites across the state. They consolidate multiple data entry screens, which eliminate redundant data entry and provide faster processing of court information.
