[SUPREME] Henry County Goes Online with Indiana Supreme Court Odyssey Case Management System
Start Date: 5/31/2012Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 5/31/2012End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
The Henry County Courts and Clerk are successfully operating a new 21st-century computer system called “Odyssey,” the Indiana Supreme Court announced. Odyssey connects the counties to a continually growing network of courts, clerks, law enforcement and other state agencies.  There are currently 122 courts in 41 counties in the state using Odyssey.  

The upgrade to Odyssey in Henry County is part of the Indiana Supreme Court’s effort to equip every trial court with a 21st-century case management system.  Odyssey connects courts with each other, law enforcement, state agencies and makes court information available over the Internet at no charge.  With Odyssey, an estimated 12,400 new cases filed in Henry County each year will be managed by a state-of-the-art computer system.  

Henry Circuit Court 1 Judge Mary Willis praised the new system, “Henry County is fortunate to implement the state’s modern case management system.  It makes us more efficient while saving us significant money.  It is a pleasure to have Justice Frank Sullivan, the visionary of the plan to improve access to justice through technology, in our county to demonstrate Odyssey.” 

Henry County Clerk Debra Walker is also pleased Odyssey is a user-friendly system.  She said, “This is an improvement for public access because it allows a person to search case information and get to it for free.  We even have two public terminals in the Clerk’s lobby that allow for on-site public access.”

Odyssey was first installed in ten Indiana courts on a pilot basis in December 2007 under the direction of the Indiana Supreme Court’s Division of State Court Administration’s Judicial Technology and Automation Committee (JTAC).  Indiana Supreme Court Justice Frank Sullivan, Jr., who chairs JTAC, congratulated those involved in bringing Odyssey to Henry County.  “This is a major accomplishment and the people of Henry County should be proud of the hard work done by Clerk Walker and Judges Mary Willis, Ed Dunsmore and Bob Witham.  Their staffs are to be congratulated as well.  Having this advanced technology will mean better service for the county’s citizens, will increase public safety because of its connections to law-enforcement, and because JTAC pays for the computer software, using Odyssey will save money for the county’s taxpayers as well.”

Courts pay no installation costs, training costs, license fees or annual maintenance costs for Odyssey.  Those costs are paid by JTAC from the proceeds of a court filing fee dedicated to the project by the General Assembly.  Odyssey is designed to be implemented statewide and is being installed without disrupting everyday court business or closing Indiana courts.  Odyssey is replacing 22 different and unrelated court record management systems statewide that do not communicate with each other.
