Arkansas Court Automation Programs

Arkansas Court Automation Programs (ACAP) provides technological support to the state’s courts, makes court information available to the public, and develops online, court-related services.

In 2009 Governor Beebe signed into law Act 328, which funds technology in the courts.

Plans to provide statewide jury and case management to all Arkansas courts were put into motion by the Supreme Court in 2002. The program began as a pilot project in circuit and district courts to determine the feasibility and suitability of providing uniform case and jury management solutions in a non-uniform judicial system.

With the case and jury management software, the Administrative Office of the Courts can provide additional services to the courts and public. CourtConnect is how the public accesses court records from the jurisdictions where the software has been implemented. eTraffic allows the public to pay traffic tickets to courts using Contexte, the electronic case management system. eFiling allows attorneys and the public to electronically submit court filings. eCitation is a joint project with the Arkansas State Police and other law enforcement agencies to issue and transmit citations to the electronic case management system (Contexte).
