RE-ELECT
FORREST THOMPSON
THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR
MEDINA COUNTY PROSECUTOR
Paid for by Friends of Forrest Thompson, James O'Neil, Treasurer.


On my first day in office, it was obvious that the office was antiquated and inefficient. The technology was almost non-existent and there was an obsolete case management system.  The staff lacked the tools to work efficiently and effectively and files were not adequately secured. 


The majority of these much-needed upgrades were paid with forfeiture monies rather than taxpayers dollars!


To address these issues, I updated the server and moved it to an offsite location enhancing security.  I systematically replaced all hardware and software throughout the office and most importantly, I purchased a state-of the-art file case management and operating system specifically designed for prosecutors and law enforcement.  This system, Matrix, is a web-based, comprehensive prosecutor case management system. It provides prosecutors with a single solution that meets all case and workflow requirements from case intake through appeal. It automates the key functions of the prosecutor’s office enabling prosecuting attorneys and support staff to be more effective and efficient. During the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, this system allowed us to seamlessly maintain a high level of efficiency while working from home.   


Matrix provides meaningful integration which increases productivity while decreasing operating cost and accelerating the timely disposition of justice.  This has allowed us to increase the number of cases handled by more than 58% without the need to increase additional staff members.


I AM DETERMINED AND COMMITTED TO REPRESENT

ALL OF MEDINA COUNTY.
