Connecticut Electronic Citation Project
The E-Citation project eliminated a completely paper-based process and substituted the electronic capture of citation data by Connecticut law enforcement.
The program allows police officers to access motor vehicle and wanted persons databases and enter citation information into the Centralized Infractions Bureau database of the Connecticut Judicial Branch – all through their in-vehicle systems. Benefits include no redundant data entry, no handwriting issues, and no incorrect charges. The system even calculates fines and fees according to the rules, without exception.
From the Governor to the agency Commissioners with oversight for the Trafffic Records Coordinating Committee, the State of Connecticut has demonstrated strong collaboration for the development of Electronic citations.
