Streamling the DA’s Office, Getting Vaccine Serum into arms and Insuring Continued Operations of the Childrens Museum
City Supervisors today gave the go ahead for District Attorney Jason Woodbury to streamline and make much more efficient the city’s procedures in handling criminal cases. Woodbury went through a very complicated assessment of his office, pointing out inefficiencies in the way data and criminal evidence is processed and the length of time it often takes to determine a suspect’s sentencing for a criminal act and conviction, or determining whether the suspect is innocent. Woodbury says his office has a set of very logical procedures but their traditional ways of processing information and adjudication can be far better handled with more up to date computerized processes at handling evidence surrounding a case.
Woodbury went over the advantages of abandoning some of their computer programs and devoting more energy and funds to acquire newer computer resources and software for the DA’s office. Woodbury said suspected criminal information can be handled more quickly from arrest, to incarceration, case study, information mitigation and discovery at a lightning pace. Cases can be more efficiently processed and decided upon. In short, justice moves at a faster and more accurate pace. And probably at lower cost.
An impressed Board of Supervisors was quick to approve Woodbury’s request for the overhaul of his department’s evidentiary work flow. Woodbury told the Board that the transition to the new system will take some time but in the end, the new system – which is nearly revolutionizing District Attorney’s offices all across the country – will finally arrive in Carson City. Woodbury and the Board of Supervisors agreed that the slightly higher cost for the new system will be softened by the cost savings it will generate by hyper-streamlining the work flow.
The Supervisors also agreed to a Carson City Children’s Museum lease extension. The lease came in at a whopping $1 a year. Yup…one dollar….which of course helps the Children’s Museum devote more energy and more resources that are made possible with public and business donations going toward the goals of the museum. A really good deal for further educating the children of Carson City.
And finally the Supervisors were told by Carson City Health officials and Covid-19 vaccination folks that the distribution of vaccine has been going very well. In many areas of the country the distribution has been up and down….sometimes nothing – but Nevada has been hangin’ in there. The initial distribution set-up was highly irregular but Nevada health and other officials managed to smooth out the delivery. But there have been complaints among entities representing senior citizens that the elderly has been short-changed lately prompting Governor Sisolak to pump up that group of people. At the same time, complaints have arisen that teachers and kids need to get back to school so students will hopefully have instructors “live” in the classroom as opposed to just internet connections.
