Automation & Research

The Automation & Research Unit is a part of the Juvenile Justice Services Division (JJSD) at the Arizona Supreme Court. 

The automation staff in the unit serves as the chief points of contact for Juvenile Automation Systems. This includes planning, testing, training, implementation, application support, and system coordination. Automation staff work in conjunction with the Information Technology Department (ITD) to provide on-going application support and enhancement for the Juvenile Online Tracking System (JOLTSaz), Statewide Identifier (SWID) system, Arizona Youth Assessment System (AZYAS) web portal, and Court Appointed Special Advocate System (CASAaz).

The research and reporting staff provide objective research and statistics to assist the Division, as well as the state, in making data informed decisions. Staff gather, analyze and publish statistical information and research about the youth who are processed through the Juvenile Court system.  This includes validation studies, trend analyses, capacity calculations and performance measures. All data requests and research activities that access juvenile probation data are processed through this unit.
