TALLAHASSEE, FLA – Representatives from the Arkansas Division of Community Corrections were recognized Friday, September 6 at the third annual Arkansas Digital Government Transformation Awards for their work in conjunction with Marquis Software to improve client supervision. This annual event hosted by the Information Network of Arkansas (INA) recognizes the achievements of Arkansas government offices that have used technology to drive innovation and make positive, measurable change in the state.
Community Corrections leaders in collaboration with consultants at Marquis received honorable mentions in the Governor’s Digital Transformation Award category for their work in creating the InTouch Client Portal and InTouch Parole and Probation Officer Portal (formerly MAPPS).
The InTouch community supervision applications improve efficiency and foster a safer work environment for parole and probation officers in the field by enabling parolee and probationers’ smartphones to work directly with Arkansas Community Corrections’ offender management software, eOMIS™. The app has fundamentally changed the way officers provide a structured, supported, and supervised transition by enabling offenders to take an active role in their own supervision.
More than twenty state government projects were submitted, and nominations were evaluated by a committee comprised of INA Board, the Arkansas Secretary of State, the Arkansas Division of Information Systems director, the Arkansas Secretary of Transformation and Shared Services, and Governor Asa Hutchinson. These individuals chose the winners and finalists in each category and presented them with awards at the event.
“I’m proud of our state and local leaders for embracing technology and transforming the way they conduct business and serve Arkansans,” said Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson. “This year’s nominees continue to impress by their innovative ideas, creativity, and determination to make their agencies more efficient and responsive. The lives of Arkansans are easier because of these award-winning initiatives that make government more accessible.”
Marquis Software hopes to continue researching award-winning practical solutions that reduce recidivism, protect the community, and support parole and probation officers.
