The JAG community's wireless courtroom pilot project, led by the Knowledge Management (KM) team, is expeditiously moving forward thanks to Ms. Kimberlie Ginyard and the rest of the Technology, Operations & Plans (Code 67)
"The wireless courtroom enhances courtroom functionality, streamlines procedures, and enables practicing judge advocates' and legalmen's ability to leverage technology to provide more effective representation of commands and clients in the courtroom," said Capt. Errol Henriques.
Personnel in Region Legal Service Office (RLSO) Naval District Washington's courtroom are now able to wirelessly access share drives, send and receive NMCI e-mail, and browse internet sites from any NMCI wifi-enabled device. This allows for more efficient advocacy in the courtroom and meets American Bar Association guidelines for technology practice standards.
In support of the KM wireless pilot, Code 67's IT team had to navigate complicated funding approval requirements and NMCI order submissions and conduct regular meetings with Hewitt Packard technicians for planning and equipment ordering. After completing its planning, the Code 67 executed coordination and verification of installation and configuration in the new wireless space. Code 67 is working to install NMCI wireless at RLSO Mid-Atlantic in the near future as the next phase of the pilot. This development follows implementation of Naval Justice School's wireless cloud system that Code 67 and the Naval Justice School staff set up over the past year. Staff, instructors, and students are now be able to use their own wifi devices to access educational materials, e-mail, printing, and cloud-based, collaborative platforms.
Code 67 manages IT resources for Office of the Judge Advocate General and Naval Legal Service Command across the globe, and allows the JAG community to meet its mission and remain dedicated to service and committed to excellence!
