Available eServices

Administrative Office of the Courts and Probation

IT Division staff fulfill the technology needs of the offices that provide accounting services, human resources, legal support, policy direction and education/training for the statewide court and probation systems.  The IT team also provides services to the offices supporting the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals such as the Clerk's Office, and the Reporter of Decisions; as well as the various divisions of Judicial Branch Education, Attorney Services Division, Office of Public Guardian and the Office of Dispute Resolution.  Many of these offices are located in the State Capitol building, however, there are additional satellite offices around the state. 

Statewide Probation

The Nebraska Probation Application for Community Safety (NPACS) is a solution that provides online case management for the fourteen Probation Districts throughout the state.  Other solutions that support the effective and efficient operation of the Probation system include applications to manage vouchers, register service providers, and deliver online training.  Travel time and expense is reduced by using video conferencing, and communication is enhanced by sharing information via an intranet.

Through continuous NPACS development and offering support for implementation of other technology in offices and reporting centers across the state, IT staff work to enable the Probation system to serve the public and ultimately, to fulfill Probation’s vision for excellence in justice and community safety.  

Statewide Trial Courts and Appellate Courts

The IT Division provides day-to-day support for all the county, district, and separate juvenile courts across Nebraska, as well as constantly striving to find new and better solutions to make the courts more efficient and deliver information and services to the public and the legal community.  IT works to maintain and enhance the statewide case management system known as JUSTICE, as well as the appellate case management system, SCCALES.  They also assist the courts with implementation and use of other technologies such as digital recording and video conferencing in the courtroom, as well as document scanning and imaging.  Internal judicial branch IT staff also coordinate with the state's network manager Nebraska.gov to be able to provide a large suite of online services such as eFiling, ePayment, and court case information searches.
