Buffalo Drug Court

Buffalo Drug Court

The Buffalo Drug Court wanted a computerized information system but didn't have a lot of money to build one. The result, built with Microsoft Access, is an effective, efficient tool that captures all data important to a medium-sized court, from screening information about participants to administrative information about the day's calendar. The systm allows users to obtain information quickly by making specific queries -- for instance: How many participants are in treatment? How many have dropped out? What's the status of a particular case? Who's coming to court today? The system was developed by the Buffalo City Court and the New York State Office of Court Administration in conjunction with the Jacksonville, Florida Drug Court. Support was received from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Drug Court Clearinghouse and Technical Assistance Project at American University.

Juvenile Treatment Court

Juvenile Treatment Court

The Harlem Juvenile Intervention Court is a community-based juvenile drug court that seeks to link delinquent youth to drug treatment and other services such as counseling, tutoring and positive social activities. The goal is to give young people the structure and support they need to avoid further criminal behavior. The Juvenile Intervention Court Application - developed by the Center for Court Innovation, with support from the State Justice Institute - is a computer software program that uses Intranet technology to create an electronic workplace for the diverse group of players who participate in a juvenile drug court. The technology enables judges, attorneys, probation officers, case managers and service providers to access information quickly and easily within the strict confidentiality guidelines of family court.
