Alameda County Court still Struggling with Computer System
It has now been over six months since the Odyssey computer system was implemented in Alameda County. Over the last six months there have been reports of inmates staying in jail pass their sentence, individuals arrested for probation violations that had been recalled and a host of other delays and complications. Whether this is a terminal software issue or what that can be fixed remains to be seen, however, there have been, to be fair, some advantages of the new system including cost cutting, ability obtain information immediately across the various courts as well as ability of criminal lawyers to pull files on line. It appears Alameda Presiding Judge Jacobson has taken the matter under submission and we hope the various issues with the software are resolved soon.
