As part of its upward mobility the Justice System Reform Court Administration Project, had its Rural launch at the May Pen Resident Magistrate's Court in Clarendon on Monday April 23, 2007 as a step to modernise the Court System.
Several Attorney, Media Personnel and Court Staffs were taken through the new direction where the Court's Administration is concern.
"Previously you would have to wait up to two weeks after filing a small claim in the Court, however that is set to change in very short order, with the new Judicial Enforcement Management System coming on board," remark Sheldon Grey, a System Trainer from the Supreme Court.
Mr. Grey took all in attendance through what the new procedure is and showed that instead of waiting two weeks for a simple document this could be processed in less than two minutes, which will in effect speed through the process for all concerned.
In addition to the speed the new system will eliminate the possible misplacement of Court files as the manual way of taking the file from one area to the next will be something of the past, as the system will save the information on a data and there will be no need to worry as if some malicious person tries to get rid of the information with the various security system, the records can be had within twelve hours.
"We intend to train every member of staff, from the Resident Magistrates to Clerk of Court, to make the system fully operational," Grey said.
This new pilot project will be working in collaboration with the liberty Court Recorder, which will in effect eliminate the note taking of the Resident Magistrate.
The system will work through a PC base audio recording programme, design to run by Window Operating System.
Canadian Representative, Gordon Bennett went on that the Liberty Solution can record and playback on multiple channels and that it will also include book mark and text note features for special marking imbedded directly into the Audio Files, which can benefit both Judges and defence.
It was also borne out that the system has been in Jamaica since 1999 at the Supreme Court and in 2003 was placed in other RM Courts and with the aim to speed up an effective Justice System, all Courts in Jamaica will come on board and attached to the central feeder system at the Supreme Court to keep the wheels of Justice turning swiftly yet fairly.
