  • Uniform Traffic Citations
  • Slide 3
  • E-Citations Electronic systems provide a quantifiable financial benefit by removing clerical data entry requirements, improving officer efficiency and safety, and increasing revenue by producing more accurate, enforceable citations.
  • Slide 4
  • Law Enforcement E-Citation Usage The data indicates law enforcement agencies (LEAs) are increasingly using computer generated citations created by mobile laptops or hand held devices. Today, 54.6% of law Enforcement agencies are using or preparing to use e-citations. This percentage has increased exponentially as the total number of LEAs using e-citations has increased.
  • Slide 5
  • Grant Overview 4 E-Citation Workgroups (Tallahassee, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale) 12 Regional Law Enforcement Presentations (Bay, Duval, Orange, Lee, Broward, Hillsborough Counties) 2 Judges Conferences (Marco Island, Boca Raton) Law Enforcement, Clerks of Court and Vendor Surveys FACC Structure Testing

  • Paperless Pilot As of September 1, 2010, the drivers signature is no longer required on the Uniform Traffic Citation unless the offense requires a mandatory hearing. The Department conducted a paperless citation pilot with Marion and Alachua counties to receive and process electronic citation data directly from Florida Highway Patrol Paperless Pilot helped to establish best practices
  • Slide 7
  • Common Citation Issues The use of E-Citations aids in the reduction of commonly occurring errors: Legibility Incorrect Statute Numbers Incorrect Driver License Numbers Incorrect DL class or failure to indicate CDL/Commercial Vehicle Incorrect date of birth Incorrect spelling of violators name Incorrect traffic light and speeding amounts Citations filed in an untimely manner Incorrect amount for Fix-It tickets Incorrect amounts for registration, Driver License and insurance tickets
  • Slide 8
  • Barriers to Judges Accepting E-Citations Judges would like to have a replica (or electronic image) of the electronic ticket that they can see in court that presents the information in the same format as a standard paper ticket. The non-transmission of data in the Officer certify check box by the FHP electronic citation system. Judges will not/ do not like accepting citations that do not contain the violators signature.
  • Slide 9
  • New Numbering System DecimalBase 36Base 36 Citation Numbers 11000001P 10A00000AP 1002S00002SP 1,000RS0000RSP 10,0007PS0007PSP 100,000255S00255SP 1,000,000LFLS00LFLSP In October 2011 the Department will employ its new inventory system and implement a new numbering sequence. The new sequence will remain a 7 character number. Characters 1-6 are a collection of alpha- numeric characters generated by a base 36 conversion. The seventh character will be either P for paper or E for electronic. Electronic numbers will be delivered in an excel spreadsheet in an effort to reduce duplication errors
