Technology encompasses a wide variety of areas including social media to increase awareness, information technology (IT) to store and access case information and confidentiality.

Information Technology Systems

Information Technology (IT) systems help members of a community collaborative system store, access and analyze data. They can also be integrated with existing case management systems.

Social Media

Social media are online systems which allow community collaborative systems to communicate with large numbers of people at the same time. They are very useful for raising awareness, responding to questions, or posting information which may be useful to the public.

Information Sharing & Gathering

"A coordinated community response involves increased information sharing, communication and coordination among criminal justice agencies and community-based social services."

Judicial Notes:

Information sharing in Community Collaborative Response Systems often requires a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to be developed between partner agencies. In therapeutic court models defendants tend to be diverted into a court with a legal carrot, implicitly or explicitly accepting information sharing practices which are not traditionally recognized in general courts. However, in Due Process Non-Ex Parte courts, information sharing may be limited. In general information sharing in a traditional court unconnected with a CCR may only occur at judicial reviews where the court can receive compliance information.
