Public Defenders System
The Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency supports the Public Defenders RMS System through a grant to the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP). Since 2002, PCCD has funded and assisted 28 public defender offices with purchasing the Legal Edge software and necessary hardware to develop and operate their automated case management system. The automated case management system enables public defender offices to gather and analyze information in an accurate and timely fashion. PCCD, via its Office of Criminal Justice System Improvements, has also provided architectural and design guidance throughout the life of this project.
