OSP Adopts Electronic Citation Program

K-DOCK 92.9

A new technology program developed by Oregon State Police with assistance of Oregon Judicial Department and Oregon Department of Transportation, designed to improve efficiencies in the traffic citation process, was announced as a finalist by the National Association of State Chief Information Officers for one of its 2012 Recognition Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Information Technology in State Government.

The Oregon State Police Mobility + E-Ticketing Program developed an electronic citation process to more efficiently move a citation from the law enforcement officer’s hand to circuit and justice courts across the state.

OSP began developing the program in January 2011 as part of a series of technology-based projects that are transforming how OSP troopers work and upgrading how the Department conducts daily business. The Mobility + E-Ticketing Program was successfully completed eleven months later as 39 circuit courts began moving from the delivery of handwritten citations to receiving electronic citations after preparation at the scene of the traffic stop.
