Reducing criminal justice involvement to strengthen community well-being. 

North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts eCourts Update

Criminal Justice Services and local justice system partners are continuously working with the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts to prepare for the state’s launch of its eCourts initiative.  Some challenges have been encountered with the implementation of eCourts which has impacted local justice systems, processes and access to data.  Mecklenburg County is continuously working to address these challenges.

During this interim period, information found on the Criminal Justice Services data dashboards that rely on state court data will become static effective October 4, 2023. 

Until the dashboards are restored, all data requests should be submitted to the Criminal Justice Services Research & Planning Unit through its online portal

Any questions should be sent via email to [email protected].

As always, we appreciate your partnership and patience.

Criminal Justices Services (CJS) promotes collaboration between the city, county, and state criminal justice agencies, in addition to community based and non-profit organizations. CJS also establishes and measures criminal justice performance measures, provides  programs and services for affected community members, and develops initiatives that enhance systemic performance and heighten public safety.
