Departments like the sheriff's office, state's attorney and county courthouse are getting a new software program.
It's streamlining information so it will be shared faster and have fewer errors.
The ultimate goal is enhancing communication between various departments and the public.
Circuit Clerk Bobby Spears hopes the uniformed system will reduce data entry mistakes.
"When you double enter, that's when the mistakes happen. You wouldn't believe what looks like an "L" is really an "I" or an "I" looks like an "L," explained Spears. "So, it will all be on time, it will all be in there. People will be able to look up the stuff right away."
Peoria County is the first in the state to transition to this software program called "Odyssey".
It'll take employees about a year to complete the transition.
