North Carolina Warrant Repository System (NCAWARE)

NewSouth provided Project Management services, business analysis services, Java/J2EE programming services, database management services, and Quality Assurance Testing services for the custom design, construction, and implementation of the North Carolina Warrant Repository System (NCAWARE) for the North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC). NCAWARE is a statewide warrant repository that includes all criminal processes, such as warrants, magistrate orders, citations that lead to an arrest, criminal summons, orders for arrest, release orders, and appearance bonds. It also tracks information and details for all people and businesses involved in such processes (defendants, victims, witnesses, etc.). The system is currently deployed in 98 of NC’s 100 counties (rolling out to the remaining 2 by the end of 2011) and is used by more than 30,000 end-users, including all state and local law enforcement officers through personal computers in the patrol cars.
