IN Experiments With Online Protective Orders


A pilot program in eight Indiana counties lets domestic violence victims fill out forms online to request protective orders, reports the Indianapolis Star. It’s an expansion of the state’s electronic protective order registry, which makes new orders available to police statewide within minutes.

Once the online forms are completed with the help of a domestic violence advocate, they can be printed and taken to the county clerk for filing. The improvements were financed by a $135,000 grant from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute.
