Child Protection Courts & Case Management System

Created by the Office of Court Administration (OCA) and launched in 2009, Child Protection Case Management System (CPCMS) is a state-of-the-art case management system unique to Child Protection Courts (CPC). OCA provides project management, programming, and testing services for CPCMS. OCA staffs a CPCMS Advisory Council of CPC judges, OCA staff and Children’s Commission staff to identify and discuss various enhancements and issues. CPCMS is used by 30 CPC courts handling child protection cases in 144 (mostly rural) of the state’s 254 counties.
