2010 Press Releases

CONTACT PERSON: VALERIE WILLARD

PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER

 NOVEMBER 5, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Justice Marcus Clark was in East Carroll Parish recently, on behalf of the Louisiana Supreme Court to present a grant check in the amount of $34,595 to East Carroll Parish Clerk of Court Beatrice Carter for the acquisition of a new and improved case management system. The new system provides a technological solution for East Carroll Parish where heretofore criminal and traffic case management was paper-driven, done manually, and not able to be shared in an automated fashion.


“With these funds the Clerk of Court for East Carroll Parish takes a giant step into the 21st century and it is a win-win for everyone. The parish citizens and the legal community benefit from the convenience of the automated case management services provided by the Clerk’s Office on a day-to-day basis. The criminal justice system as a whole benefits from the criminal, traffic and statistical data which can now be integrated with other criminal justice agencies’ information systems,” said Justice Clark.


According to Carter, the newly acquired system enables state-of-the-art scanning, indexing and preserving of criminal and traffic records on par with most of the Clerk of Court Offices in the state. The collected data can now be reported to the Case Management Information Systems (CMIS) division of the Louisiana Supreme Court and passed on to other criminal justice agencies such as the Louisiana State Police Criminal Repository and the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles. The $34,595 grant for East Carroll’s modernized case management system is federally funded through the Crime Information Technology Act of 1998, and additionally funded through the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration which is administered by the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice. The Louisiana Supreme Court’s CMIS division serves as a conduit for these federal funds to the state district courts.


For more information contact Beatrice Carter at 318.559.2399.
