Ciber has helped a Louisiana district become the first district in the US to monitor problem gambling statistics, thanks to a new case management system that helps manage and automate district attorneys’ caseloads.
Ciber, along with Louisiana attorney general Charles Foti, Jr and 26th Judicial District attorney J Schuyler Marvin, has announced the successful launch of CiberLaw Crimes, a case management system that helps manage and automate caseloads in district attorneys’ offices.
During the implementation, Ciber customized the application to be able to track compulsive gambling and related criminal activity, making the 26th Judicial District the first office nationwide to be able to monitor this activity.
The 26th Judicial District of Louisiana, which includes Bossier and Webster Parishes, selected the CiberLaw Crimes case management system to help it manage cases and automate many routine tasks so attorneys, staff, and investigators can allocate their time toward more complex and pressing activities.
CiberLaw Crimes provides the parishes with a standard database and a customizable user interface that can be quickly and easily tailored to meet the parishes’ specific needs, such as its recent initiative to track compulsive gambling activity and related crimes.
The system offers an integrated workflow engine to automate the flow of case documents and communication through the legal system, providing automatic reminders of events and deadlines to ensure timely completion of legal tasks. A document generation module simplifies the production of standard and case-specific legal documents, while a robust reporting module enables staff to easily respond to requests for information and government reporting requirements.
Problem gambling negatively affects more than 100,000 families in Louisiana.
