PHOENIX – Prosecutors with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office will greatly reduce the amount of paperwork they have to handle by using a new online criminal case management system to create and exchange electronic documents with the courts, law enforcement agencies and defense attorneys. The new system, PROSECUTORbyKARPEL, is also designed to facilitate a mobile solution that allows prosecutors to quickly access necessary case information while in court using computer tablets.
“This solution represents a quantum leap forward in our efforts to create a paperless system that allows our prosecutors to more effectively and efficiently manage their caseloads,” said Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery. “By reducing or eliminating the delays that frequently occur with generating and distributing paper documents, we will be able to shorten the time it takes to resolve cases and provide justice for victims and their families,” he added.
“The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office is setting an important example for other large prosecution agencies by converting to an online case management system that will improve day to day operations and serve the greater interests of the communities they protect,” said Jeff Karpel, founder of Karpel Solutions. “We are proud to have been selected as a partner in this effort and we look forward to an ongoing successful relationship,” he added.
In adopting PROSECUTORbyKARPEL, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office becomes one of the largest jurisdictions in the U.S. to convert from a case management system that relies on data stored in multiple “silos” to one in which information is centralized in a single location accessible from virtually anywhere. The new platform will allow attorneys, paralegals and support staff to electronically file court documents, access criminal histories, track evidence, provide discovery materials and perform a range of other tasks without having to rely on a physical case file.
