“The City Prosecutor’s Office is using technology to increase professional and efficient prosecution of misdemeanor offenders. Without technology and IT’s guidance, our paperless transition would be impossible. Our JustWare software will help us focus attention on case preparation, victim needs and fair application of plea offers to all defendants.”
—Baird S. Greene, Deputy City Attorney
ITD professionals have been key in transitioning the City Prosecutor’s Office from a 1970s style pen and paper file system to a wireless operation based on computerized case management and processing inside the courtroom.
Support has ranged from project initiation and management, to technical consultation, to direct support in installing wireless access points, tablets, scanners and much more.
Additionally, ITD has been instrumental as a liaison with our software provider to make sure that the City is getting the proper technology at the right cost, and in coordinating with our City partners in the Public Defender’s Office, the City Court, and the Tucson Police Department. With IT’s assistance, we are modernizing City operations for the better.
