New system provides
automatic alerts to probation officers
– A new tool is now operational that alerts state probation officers
when an offender on their caseload is arrested or convicted and when a
warrant or order for arrest is issued.Training on the new tool is currently available and all of the
state’s probation officers will be required to use the tool on a daily
basis starting Jan. 1.
new web-based tool became operational Oct. 29.It allows officers to review their entire caseload and quickly
see which offenders have new arrests or convictions since the previous
day.It is incorporated
with an online caseload roster that officers already use, eliminating
the need to log in to multiple systems.
Department of Correction (DOC) developed the tool that matches new
arrest and conviction data from the Administrative Office of the Courts
(AOC) with information in the DOC offender database.As probation officers review their caseload roster, offenders
with new arrests and convictions are highlighted in red and additional
information on the new arrest or conviction is one click away.In the near future programmers plan to add data on non-arrestable
infractions such as traffic violations.
Department of Correction developed the tool for a one time cost of less
