    IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT EXPANSION OF ODYSSEY SYSTEM
    IN PINELLAS COUNTY TO CRIMINAL, TRAFFIC, AND JUVENILE
    WITH IMPACT ON CIVIL, FAMILY, AND PROBATE CASES

    On July 14, 2014, the Odyssey case management system in Pinellas County will be expanded to include criminal, traffic, dependency and delinquency cases.  This is a historic transition and we are excited about the prospects of a new system after more than 30 years with CJIS. Because of the complexity and volume involved with converting data from the old CJIS legacy system into the new Odyssey case management system, there will need to be a period when both CJIS and Odyssey will be "view only" immediately prior to the go live date.  

    Beginning the afternoon of Thursday, July 3, through Sunday, July 13, CJIS will be available for view only.  The information that will be available for viewing will not be updated once view only mode is initiated so its usefulness will be limited.

    Odyssey will be view only from Monday, July 7 through Saturday, July 12. Records and images in Odyssey will not be updated during this view only timeframe. This will impact all current Odyssey users in civil, family, and probate.


    Impacts on criminal, traffic, and juvenile cases:

    Because CJIS records cannot be updated after July 3rd, the Courts will be operating on reduced schedules the week of July 7th. In criminal cases, only first appearance hearings, bond hearings, some violation of probation hearings, and trials will be conducted. There will be no local ordinance violation or notice to appear calendars. In juvenile cases, only shelter and detention hearings and trials will be held. For traffic cases, there will be no proceedings scheduled at either traffic facility the entire week of July 7th and there will be no evening traffic infraction or parking ticket calendars the week of July 7th. 


    Impacts on civil, family, and probate cases:

    Because Odyssey will be view only for a week, this may impact civil, family and probate cases. Judges and other judicial officers may need to limit the types and number of hearings scheduled the entire week of July 7th. 

    I appreciate your patience with the rescheduling of the previous March go live date. Please check our website at www.jud6.org for the latest information on the expansion of Odyssey.

    Recap of important dates:

    July 3rd – July 13th

    CJIS access is view only; records will not be updated after July 3rd

    July 7th – July 11th

    Court proceedings in criminal, juvenile and criminal traffic are limited

    July 7th – July 11th

    No proceedings at traffic courts; no evening civil traffic infractions scheduled

    July 7th - July 12th

    Odyssey system in civil, family and probate is view only

    July 13th

    Odyssey is accessible again for civil, family and probate cases

    July 14th

    Odyssey goes live in criminal, dependency, delinquency, and traffic

    Procedures may not be changed unless a majority of the judges assigned to the civil

    divisions in Pasco and Pinellas Counties have agreed to the changes. All changes must

    be uniform and adopted by administrative order of the Chief Judge.

    2. Circuit Judge Anthony Rondolino is appointed to chair a committee of judges to review

    the existing pre-trial conference orders and procedures for non-jury trials and make

    recommendations for change.
