Insight into problems facing the courts today

Cost effective solutions to help officers of the court solve some of their biggest challenges

  • Shrinking budgets, overcrowded dockets, and offenders who do not comply with court orders;
  • Limited compliance from offenders who violate court orders during pretrial and post-sentence;
  • Backlogs of re-arrest orders;
  • Fewer resources to effectively supervise offenders, return violators to courts, and collect fines and fees;
  • Repeat offenders with anger management issues, substance abuse, domestic violence violations, and other behavioral issues who struggle to reenter the community;
