Since taking Office in 2018, our staff has made many strides to improve our customer service, and to update technology. Through cooperation with or County's Data Processing Department, and our Software Vendor, we were able to update our Case Management System. Our Legal Division Team has begun a cross-training program with our three divisions: Criminal, Domestic Relations, and Civil. This creates a much more dynamic and highly trained staff, able to better serve the public on a daily basis. Our Office now works more closely with the Courts and the Adult Probation Department through a liaison program. We have also added high-speed scanners, which has drastically increased our productivity and efficiency, which aids in paperless and electronic filing. At our Title Division, we have added two additional Credit Card readers, at no cost to the County, to better serve our customers. As a result, our Title Division brought in nearly $1,000,000 in 2019, transferred to the County General Fund
