Dorothy Brown, Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County today announced a major new technological addition--new Mobile App designed to put a wealth of court-related information at the user’s fingertips. Now, Court Clerk Mobile Connect offers:
1. Electronic Docket Case Search where you can search a person’s name and find all the civil cases he or she has in any court division, and searching a specific case number for civil case types (this excludes any criminal case searches).
2. Traffic Ticket search where you can search our traffic ticket database for moving violations by driver’s license or ticket number. Where either the case is still pending and/or the traffic ticket violation has not been settled.
3. Court call search where our court call roster for upcoming court events to be held within the next five businesses by case number.
4. Updated fee schedules, Google maps to locate facilities, and the ability to email and call a Cook County Court Division directly.
The Court Clerk Mobile Connect app makes information available more quickly and easily, and gives the general public the ability to search cases by name or case number: from each individual facility screen there is a Google map showing the location of that facility; it also list all court fee schedules. In addition, users will have the ability to save electronic docket searches to make it easier for future access. The mobile app is sophisticated, easy to use and more importantly it is free and can be downloaded for use on an “Android or iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch”.
Several months ago, Clerk Dorothy Brown met with her MIS team and asked them on implementing a mobile App. The staff researched and figured out how to design the mobile app in-house at huge cost savings. Other Circuit Court Clerk’s offices with similar mobile apps, such as Parish of Jefferson in Louisiana, Sangamon circuit Court and the Clerk of Toledo Municipal Court’s office in Ohio, hired vendors to design, and implement their mobile applications.
