Guilford County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Colonel Randy Powers (Greensboro News & Record)
"It gives us instant access to (court) papers - we can have them printed in the car and serve them almost immediately. Before we would have to find out where a paper was issued, go to another agency (to pick up a paper or wait on a fax) while en route to the jail."
Greensboro Public Safety IT Manager Anita McCoy (Greensboro News & Record)
"There wasn't a way for another agency (outside the county) to find out if there was a misdemeanor paper on someone. Now you are going to get everything."
Guilford County Criminal Magistrate J.A. Williams (Greensboro News & Record)
"It could take about a month or more for them to access it (warrants sent outside of county). Now, I hit a drop box (on my computer), pick the (law enforcement) agency it is going to, and they have instant access. We can really get to the bad guys faster."
Guilford County Clerk of Superior Court David Churchill (Greensboro News & Record)
"It will save us paper. It will save us time and make the clerk's office more efficient in serving citizens of this county. It looks like it is going to be a great help."
Chief Deputy Harry Meredith, Beaufort County Sheriff's Office (Daily News, Washington, NC)
"This is one of the biggest changes we have had in law enforcement in decades."
"There will be no need to call around to each agency that may have a warrant on a person or to wait with a suspect until someone can physically put their hands on a paper warrant before an arrest. The system also makes deputies and office staff more efficient by eliminating the need to manually track warrants, and it will improve safety for deputies and the citizens of Beaufort County by allowing deputies to check people they have contact with for active warrants within seconds."
Investigator Wesley Waters, Beaufort County Sheriff's Office (Daily News, Washington, NC)
"It is great for officers in the counties in the area and across the state. At the touch of a finger, we have access to the information we need."
Durham County Magistrate and Current President of the N.C. Magistrates Association D. Eric VanVleet
"We finally have a system that will ensure fairness for all. We can truly tell who needs to be served and who does not. This will protect the lives of officers in the field and citizen in their homes."
Durham County Clerk of Superior Court Archie Smith
"At last... N.C. cops and courts have the electronic technology that their Hollywood silver screen counterparts have enjoyed for years."
Wake County District Court Judge Robert Rader
NCAWARE is bad news for criminals and great news for the public and the courts.
Wake County Clerk of Superior Court Lorrin Freeman (WRAL-TV)
We are very pleased with the way [the implementation of NCAWARE] is transitioning. It helps us as clerks more efficiently serve the law enforcement community so they can help keep the public safe.
Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison (WRAL-TV)
This is going to be a great improvement from what we've had in the past. It's going to make it a safer state, safer county, because we're able to get violators off the streets a lot quicker.
Sheriff Steve Bizzell (WTVD, Channel 11)
NCAWARE hopes to bring all of the state's arrest warrants into one database, which all police can access through their vehicle computers. With NCAWARE, now it's live, it's online, it's up to date.
Dunn Police Chief B.P. Jones (Dunn Daily Record)
[NCAWARE] is the best thing since peanut butter. It's a great system, and it's working just the way it's supposed to be working. We ended up with such a mess pulling suspects out of court we had 11 officers working instead of the usual two. Just think how good it's going to be when the whole state is on board.
Police Communications Manager Charlie Callahan (Dunn Daily Record)
NCAWARE has been very effective for the Dunn department. It benefits us because when we stop individuals we can actually see papers from other jurisdictions. It gives us a better awareness of who we're dealing with and what they may be wanted for and helps us get them off the street. And it's clearing up old papers.
Clerk of Superior Court Carol Allen White (The Daily Southerner)
Any time you can enhance communication between law enforcement, you're providing a service to the community. It's just going to be quicker for police officers to obtain the information they need with the system.
