CJIS for Courts tracks any type of juvenile case, from initiation to disposition. Access to these cases can be restricted to authorized users by the CJIS security subsystem. CJIS for Courts tracks complete information about the juvenile, including charges, legal status, bond and security/depositor data, defense attorneys, prosecutors, evidence and exhibits, dispositions, sentences and appeals. On inquiry, CJIS for Courts summarizes the activity in a case, displaying the current status, the date and nature of the last event in the case and the date and nature of the next scheduled event.

CJIS Juvenile Case Management Components:

Juvenile Tracking
Each juvenile offender is assigned a unique person I.D. number that is linked to a complete file of information for that juvenile. This includes physical descriptors, aliases, prior arrests and/or convictions, known associates, addresses, and family background. Because a juvenile can have multiple pending cases, his or her pre-trial status for one case can be affected by any of the cases. For this reason, the unique person I.D. connects to a person record that reflects the latest pre-trial status of the juvenile across all pending cases for the individual. The system automatically summarizes the complete activity for the juvenile across his or her active and disposed cases, including active warrants, monies due under each case, and current custody location.

CJIS for Courts records all past and future scheduled events. This information can be sorted on-line by courtroom, judge, date, and/or range of dates. Additionally, hard copy calendars can be produced in a user-defined format.

A Rules-based Scheduling feature is available in the client/server version that permits automatic calendaring of future events on the basis of department, organization, and jurisdictional rules. Calendar rules are maintained in user-defined tables, that can be updated as needed.

Warrant Generation
CJIS for Courts tracks warrants and their status. Warrant records can be created automatically based on information entered for the juvenile case. Moreover, a hard copy of the warrant can be generated and directed to a printer at any location.

Speedy Trial Date Calculation
CJIS for Courts can track a speedy trial date for a juvenile case. An excluded time record contains information regarding events that affect the speedy trial date. CJIS for Courts automatically recalculates the maximum trial date, after considering excluded time.
