eCWS interface released for testing in White County

Doxpop has released the eCWS (electronic citation and warning system) interface for testing in White County. The strategic decision to develop the eCWS system was based on the need to fulfill the development and implementation as envisioned by the Indiana Supreme Court's Judicial Technology and Automation Committee, the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, Indiana State Police, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and Indiana State Excise Police. eCWS allows officers to electronically record citation information in the field, eliminating the need for redundant manual data entry, drastically reducing administrative work, and increasing safety on roadways by quickly identifying dangerous drivers and reducing the time needed for a traffic stop.
