Accurate & Reliable Criminal Justice Case Management 

Scotia Consulting, Inc. of Los Angeles, California, specializes in the design, development, and delivery of criminal justice case management systems to facilitate electronic monitoring, Drug Courts, and other agencies to address jail overcrowding. In 1989, we participated in the development of the first pretrial system in Los Angeles County, and have since expanded nationwide.


At the dawn of the millennium, we developed a new system based on what worked in the first version along with the latest technology. PRETRIAL+ has evolved into a product that several members of the NAPSA board have procured for their agencies because of its affordability and reliability.

This technology enables us to switch the data source or user interface, providing flexibility to be web-enabled via .NET and PC-based against common data source simultaneously. This includes most advanced levels of security capabilities, such as using user profiles to determine extent of access, ability to hide cases, screens, and data elements that certain user profiles may not access.
