The paperless system puts the documents into an e-File system and completely automates all documents used by probation, law enforcement and outside parties for Juvenile Court Delinquency hearings.

 

The system has saved the County thousands of dollars a year for staffing costs across three agencies. Additionally, attorneys have seen a 25 percent savings in time spent per case and a 50 percent increase in support staff productivity.
