Clerk’s Office to Close For Software Training

starke-county-courthouseStarting today, the Starke County Clerk’s office will be closed for an hour each day to accommodate staff training. It will occur between noon and 1 p.m. each weekday through Jan. 29th.

Clerk Vicki Cooley and her staff are learning the new case management software program Odyssey. It will go live Feb. 1st. The state has provided the clerk’s office and Starke County Courts 11 new computers and a new printer as part of the transition to a statewide system.

Odyssey will maintain criminal and civil case records and allow them to be shared easily with courts in other jurisdictions as well as other federal, state and local agencies like the BMV and law enforcement. Once it’s in place, state officials say Odyssey will allow the state’s trial courts and clerks to manage the more than 2 million cases filed annually faster and more efficiently.
