Washington Enhances Juvenile Tracking System

Reports, alerts are part of upgrade to Web-based system

by / July 23, 2003
OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Washington state has chosen Magic Software Enterprises to provide second generation enhancements to the Web-based Juvenile and Corrections System (JCS) for the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC). With capacity for up to 10,000 users, the JCS is targeted for statewide integration by Washington's juvenile court system, including juvenile detention facilities in 39 counties.

The JCS will replace an existing COBOL-based mainframe application and will be integrated with AOC's existing applications. In addition, the solution will be deployed using browser-based clients to minimize remote systems management.

Among the enhancements to the JCS system will be risk assessment reports, detention alerts, warrant status and outcomes and a snapshot view of any juvenile within the system statewide.

The intent is to provide those with a need and right to know as much useful information as possible in order to enhance the performance of juvenile justice statewide.
