Solution will allow for information sharing between courts and jail
Tyler Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: TYL) announced it has signed an agreement with the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) in Texas for its Enterprise Corrections solution. Once implemented, Dallas County will have a single integrated justice environment that will serve its civil courts, criminal courts, and the jail.
Tyler’s Enterprise Corrections solution is an integrated, comprehensive jail management software suite that helps to optimize jail operations, from intake to re-entry. The solution will help DCSO automate business processes while improving efficiency. In addition, Enterprise Corrections will benefit DCSO in the following ways:
- Integrate the courts and jail to provide immediate access to critical information about residents and case information such as hearings, charge updates, dispositions, and party information
- Ensure the safety of residents and staff, including tracking residents’ movements, enabling automated alerts, and managing threat groups
- Maintain protective layers of security around sensitive data
- Eliminate the need to rekey data and allow jail staff to perform their jobs more quickly and accurately
- Support Texas Commission on Jail Standards requirements while meeting all Texas state reporting requirements

We are confident that it will help improve efficiencies, streamline communication between the courts and jail, and assist with complex state reporting for Dallas County.”
