About the Program:

The CCPOR is a statewide centralized system for storing data and images of restraining and protective orders. The development of this new system will make information on temporary orders and permanent orders available to court staff anywhere in California, thereby allowing judicial officers to view and reduce conflicting orders across departments and court jurisdictions. This system is also a gateway for submitting full, detailed order information to the California Department of Justice's California Restraining and Protective Order System (CARPOS)-a statewide database of persons subject to a restraining order.

Program Successes/Effect on the Community:

Development - development of the pilot application has been completed and the CCPOR team is currently testing the application to be used in courts across California. CCPOR was designed with input from a cadre of criminal justice professionals including court staff, law enforcement, and the Administrative Office of the Court's IT staff. CCPOR is implemented using the latest technology at the California Courts Technology Center (CCTC). CCPOR limits system access to court personnel and sheriff staff; however, CCPOR will be integrated with California's Court Case Management System and will interface with California's Law Enforcement Telecommunication System (CLETS) which enables law enforcement to access statewide restraining and protective order data as well.

Implementation - now that the technology has been developed, it is the goal of California's Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) to deploy CCPOR to all courts in California by the end of 2013. To date AOC has received requests from 22 courts to implement CCPOR in 2010.

The purpose of CCPOR is to provide greater awareness of orders for protection to victims through better service and enforcement of orders for protection. Service and enforcement are enhanced when the criminal justice community has easy access to reliable information on the existence of restraining orders and protective orders and the conditions of those orders.

Victims who have obtained protective orders have a right to expect those orders to be enforced, regardless of when or where a violation occurs. CCPOR provides law enforcement officers with access to better and current information about existing orders. With this information, law enforcement officers will be better able to respond to allegations of violations.
