The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office (SBCDA or DA) deployed a new case management system, STAR:TNG in October 2021. The case management software supports the prosecution of criminal cases from initial submission through appeal. STAR:TNG replaced a 26 year old system while adding significant new functionality, including improved cooperation and coordination among county law & justice partners and for county team members affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic response. Key functionality of the new STAR: TNG case management system: • Receives incident reports electronically from law enforcement partners. • Validates personal identifying information of all participants against current data automatically thereby giving reviewing attorneys a complete record of the individuals involved in the case. • Assists attorneys to prepare charging documents for Court. • Electronically files documents and police reports with the Superior Court • Captures court appearance outcomes, charge and allegation dispositions, and sentencing details • Text message updates to witnesses about case status. • Tracks criminal cases to completion • Integrates communications – from letters, emails, phone calls received or sent to witnesses, victims, and defense attorneys. • Access on any device (computer, tablet or phone).
