Court Case Management Software

Around the United States, there is a focus on reducing recidivism and facilitating smoother re-entry for criminal offenders exiting the jail and prison systems. In previous decades, many considered incarcerated individuals to be lifelong criminals, incapable of being rehabilitated. Studies now show that recidivism rates are actually decreasing as rehabilitation and re-entry programs increase. Welligent facilitates the delivery of evidence-based treatment by providing a comprehensive electronic health record solution to mental health, DUI and drug court personnel. Our interoperable court case management software is cloud-based, ONC-ACB certified and HIPAA compliant. We know that collaboration is fundamental to the success of treatment programs for our returning community members.


Welligent CM is a court case management software that ensures effective and efficient case management for mental health, DUI and drug court professionals. We understand this unique market, and are proud to call Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) a Welligent customer. BSO’s Drug Court Treatment Division serves nearly 800 clients daily. Their Drug Court Treatment Division has two programs for persons with substance related conditions that provide diversion from jail or prison. The first Pre-Trial Intervention Program was designed as an alternative to traditional incarceration for first time, non-violent criminal offenders charged with the purchase or possession of a controlled substance or other substance abuse related offense. BSO’s Diversionary Treatment Program (DTP) was designed to divert adjudicated felons with substance related conditions from returning to prison. Both programs require a minimum of one-year of treatment. BSO’s goal is to break the cycle of addiction and criminal justice involvement by using a variety of individualized evidence-based treatment services to restore the participants as productive members of society.

Welligent’s court case management software features include: calendar management, case notes, incident tracking, communication tracking and appointment reminders, court management, document management, expense and time tracking and billing management.

Reduction In Recidivism

The National Reentry Resource Center, a project of the CSG Justice Center released the below report showing the reduction in recidivism across states since 2004.

Reducing Recidivism Table 1

In North Carolina, the Sentencing and Policy Advisory Commission computes recidivism rates based on a biannual basis for the state. The most recent rates were reported for 2009 and 2011 release cohorts, computed for one-year and two-year intervals. Prior to adopting this newer protocol of two-year intervals, the Sentencing Commission computed three-year recidivism rates fr a FY2006 release cohort. It was decided to use the FY2006 three-year rate for the above report, so that a similar follow-up period was available for all states. Moreover, the North Carolina Department of public Safety computed the three-year rates for a 2010 release cohort on request for this report.

iRhode Island computes its rates approximately every five years; the most recent recidivism reports computed rates for 2004 release cohorts and 2009 release cohorts. Thus there was not an available data point against which to compare the 2010 rates. It was decided to compare the 2004 recidivism rates with the rates from 2010, which were computed on request for the above report, to provide a longer time frame for analysis.
