eCitation Now!

National Center for State Courts

The National Center for State Courts recently posted a Court Technology Bulletin on the benefits of using eCitation, referencing the Pratt, Kansas Police Department’s use of digiTICKET. They lead off the article with:

“Courts are greatly benefiting from the adoption of eCitation systems by law enforcement.”

The bulletin also references the COSCA/NACM Joint Technology Committee’s eCitation paper that provides references to various other sources denoting a range of benefits, including:

  • Cost savings from reduced (or eliminated) data entry
  • Fewer data errors and increased accuracy due to capture of information once at the point of entry
  • Reduction of storage needed for paper citations
  • Ease of access for judges and staff to citations for court processing
