NEW PINELLAS COUNTY CASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IMPLEMENTED IN ALL COURT AREAS
Odyssey, the new computer system that tracks civil, criminal, traffic and other court records is now online. The new system can be used by the public as well as police, prosecutors, public defenders and others. For the public, it can be used for many tasks, including finding the date of an upcoming court hearing or learning whether a job applicant has an arrest record in Pinellas County. The new system was praised at a recent news conference attended by Pinellas-Pasco Chief Judge Thomas McGrady, Pinellas Clerk Ken Burke, Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, State Attorney Bernie McCabe, and Tom Bartel, a vice president of Texas-based Tyler Technologies, which developed the system. Odyssey gives the public limited access to court records, much like the older system did, but with less confusion and clutter.
