2011 Press Releases

CONTACT PERSON: VALERIE WILLARD

PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER
(504) 310-2590

 JUNE 7, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Chief Justice Catherine D. “Kitty” Kimball announced today that significant enhancements have been made to the Louisiana Supreme Court Drug Court Case Management System (DCCM) making it a state-of-the-art means of tracking drug court clients through the drug court process. The Louisiana Supreme Court, through the Supreme Court Drug Court Office (SCDCO), is the fiscal agent for funds allocated to local drug court programs throughout the state.


According to Chief Justice Kimball, “The web-based system allows for multi-user entry and access to critical offender data in a real-time format. Drug court staff will be able to benefit from enhanced reporting capabilities, speedier and more user-friendly applications, and new features that better facilitate data entry.” Currently there are 47 operational drug court programs in Louisiana. Each program is comprised of a drug court team which is led by a drug court judge and includes a drug court coordinator, treatment staff, prosecutor(s), public defender(s), law enforcement, case manager(s), and others who work together to ensure that the program operates according to all applicable standards and policies.


Enhancements to the DCCM enable drug court staff to track a more complete drug court client history. They are now better able to document the activity and progress of a client while in the drug court system, including detailed treatment plans, counseling sessions, and the results of all drug screen tests.


The system improvements were completed through a partnership of the SCDCO, the Louisiana Supreme Court Information Technology Department, and Geocent, LLC, a Metairie based information technology firm.
