Collin County, Texas Increases Productivity and Reduces Costs with Video Technology

Collin County, Texas deploys Cisco Connected Justice solution to help streamline judicial processes, reduce costs and increase productivity. To improve channels of communication between defense attorneys and their clients the county installed a video-conferencing system between the courthouse and jail, so that attorneys could inform their clients quickly and efficiently. “Now, when the district attorney conveys that plea bargain to the lawyer, the lawyer just goes downstairs in the courthouse, goes in the room, picks up the phone, and — in a minute or two — their client is at the receiving end of that video call, and they can see if they can resolve the case,” Judge John Roach said.
