California Disposition Reporting Improvement Project

The California Disposition Reporting Improvement Project (CA-DRIP) was a collaboration of Santa Clara County, the California Superior Court of Santa Clara County, the California Department of Justice (DOJ), and the California Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) to improve criminal disposition reporting within the county and develop a model that could be used by other jurisdictions within the state.

The California pilot project had three goals:

  • Document business processes among local and state partners to identify best practices for tracking and reporting arrest charges through disposition.
  • Develop web services that conform to the Global Reference Architecture to automate the sharing of disposition data.
  • Implement disposition reporting and error reconciliation services among their respective systems, leveraging the AOC messaging infrastructure.

Los Angeles County Automated Warrant Services

In the mid-1980s, Los Angeles County justice stakeholders recognized the need to improve their collective ability to manage warrants among their respective agencies.  Led by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD), the Countywide Warrant System (CWS) was implemented in 1988 to automate the issuance, search/retrieval, service, maintenance, and reporting of warrants.  CWS interfaces with Los Angeles County trial and traffic court systems, law enforcement agencies, and the state repository at the California Department of Justice, which links to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) to report and manage out-of-state extraditable warrants.
