States Video Conferencing Technology To Expand

The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts has announced they are launching a $2.8 million campaign to expand the use of video conferencing technology within the states magisterial district courts. The improved technology will allow judges to arraign defendants with the defendant not needing to be escorted from the central booking center to the court therefore saving money on transportation costs and increasing safety for court and law enforcement employee's. The video conferencing technology is estimated to save Lancaster County approximately $115,000.
