Web system pools data on antisocial behaviour for courts

An online tracker system which brings together information on offenders will be rolled out to 12 courts in England and Wales.

An online tracker system which brings together information on offenders will be rolled out to 12 courts in England and Wales.

The EzGov system had success at the North Liverpool Community Justice Centre, where it brought together different parts of the justice system to track and manage defendants' cases.

It has helped the justice system tackle antisocial behaviour and the crime associated with it, by improving information management capabilities.

It enables a number of agencies to store and share information about offenders, building up a file over time. All the information is then immediately available to the judge when passing sentence.

Because information is shared between agencies, decisions can be made promptly.

The system was introduced as part of the Department for Constitutional Affairs' Community Justice Programme, which aims to break cycles of reoffending through sentences supported by rehabilitation programmes.

The tracker system helps with this by enabling the court and support groups to liaise, and provide tailored solutions for each individual.
