The Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida is pleased to announce that today the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners voted to implement a new criminal court case management system for adult and juvenile cases, with a target completion date of 2025. It will replace the County’s aging and paper-based criminal justice system that was developed on mainframe computers 25 years ago.
The new system is expected to deliver new efficiencies and cost savings by replacing current manual and paper-based case management processes used by the Miami-Dade Courts and its criminal justice partners such as the Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts, State Attorney’s Office, and Public Defender’s Offices. It will also comply with case management standards established by the Florida Supreme Court.
Additional functionalities could be considered in the future, such as traffic and parking violation case management functions.
“We are very grateful to our County leaders for taking this significant and much-needed step forward in our criminal justice system,” said the Honorable Bertila Soto, Chief Judge of the Miami-Dade Courts. “The new system will vastly improve workflows and efficiency by eliminating manual processes such as having to check separate, incompatible systems for information, and having to manually copy and process paper documents.”
Additional information on the new Criminal Case Management System may be found here.
