LOUISVILLE, KY, Metro Police, Jefferson Courts Test Electronic Subpoenas

LOUISVILLE, KY City leaders hope a stimulus grant will buy the Metro better court attendance. Starting next month, Louisville Metro Police Department officers will get their Subpoenas to attend court  proceedings electronically. 

This system is set to replace the cumbersome physical service method in place today where documents are lost and officers are not getting notice on time to attend.  It is estimated that some 100,000 subpoenas are served on county agencies in Louisville annually.  For more on this story click here.

I originally reported on this project in April of last year. See blog post
