More Accurate and Efficient Filing Process for Criminal Cases

Since 2008, PSA has collaborated with the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council Case Initiation project, which will automate the filing of adult criminal cases in the D.C. Superior Court from arrest through prosecutorial action to actual case filing. This electronic exchange will forward case information (both data and documents) among the participants through a new secure messaging infrastructure. The benefits will be improved defendant identification, fewer mistaken identity cases, faster case filing from prosecutors, and a more efficient arraignment process.
