Georgia Courts Directory Verification

It’s Directory Verification time again! For thirty years or more, the AOC has mailed out postcards to update and correct the Georgia Courts Directory.  More recently the AOC Portal has allowed users to view and correct your information directly in the AOC database, saving staff time and the expense of sending postcards to those who have used the Portal.  This year, especially, we encourage you to use the Portal since this will be the final year that Directory postcards are mailed to you. 

Verify your information by May 15, 2012, to avoid a postcard in your mailbox!


AOC Trains Clerks and Others on Caseload Reporting

Since 1973, court clerks, administrators, and the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) have partnered to collect caseload information for the Superior Courts of Georgia. The data is critical for circuits requesting an additional judgeship and is used to inform state and county resource decisions.


Public Attitudes on Crime and Punishment in Georgia

According to a poll conducted by the Pew Center for on the States, Public Opinion Strategies, and the Mellman Group, Georgia voters want a public safety system that holds criminals accountable and keeps communities safe. They believe such a system is possible while reducing the size and scope of the prison system, and they strongly support reinvesting prison savings into alternatives.

Georgia voters, across party lines, support specific policies that would divert offenders from prison, shorten prison terms, and strengthen community supervision.
