Frequently Asked Questions Regarding the CCPOR Project

What is CCPOR?

The California Courts Protective Order Registry (CCPOR) is a judicial branch project that creates a statewide protective order repository that provides more complete, accessible information on restraining and protective orders.

What types of orders will CCPOR support?

CCPOR supports the following orders:

  • Criminal protective orders
  • Domestic violence restraining orders
  • Civil harassment restraining orders
  • Elder or dependent adult abuse restraining orders
  • Workplace violence restraining orders
  • Juvenile orders
  • Emergency protective orders (EPO)

How will CCPOR benefit my court?

CCPOR provides the trial courts in all 58 California counties access to restraining and protective order images, empowering bench officers to make more informed decisions while simultaneously allowing them to avoid issuing conflicting orders.

How does CCPOR benefit law enforcement and the public?

CCPOR improves public safety and the safety of law enforcement officers by improving access to more accurate, complete, and up-to-date information about protective orders.

What are the key features of CCPOR?

CCPOR enables personnel to enter and upload protective order data for automatic importing into the DOJ California Restraining and Protective Order System (CARPOS) through CLETS. In addition, CCPOR will store the R&PO image; this is particularly valuable because it allows users to see special conditions and notes added by judges that may not available in CARPOS.

Will I be able to view other courts' R&POs?

CCPOR can make available only orders that it receives from participating courts.

What search criteria does CCPOR support?

Users can search by restrained and protected persons' name, date of birth, and case number.

Can I use CCPOR even if we don't process to CLETS?

Yes, courts can choose to use the electronic document storage and retrieve function of CCPOR only, if desired.

Do my court employees need to be certified on CLETS to process CARPOS records to the DOJ?

Yes, your local sheriff’s department can provide CLETS certification.

Will my court or sheriff access CCPOR over a secure channel?

Yes, access to CCPOR is via the secure CCTC connections.

How do law enforcement agencies (like the sheriff's department) access CCPOR?

Sheriffs' departments can access CCPOR through the court's extranet using a secure channel. More details are available in the CCPOR court planning guide and LEA integration requirements.

Who can my court contact for more information?

Deployment Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs regarding the statewide deployment of CCPOR to the Superior Courts of California.

Is there a deployment process flow that will help my court understand the process?

The CCPOR deployment planning process outlines the planning, scoping, implementation, and deployment process flow.

Deployment process flow

What deployment planning should my court take into consideration?

The CCPOR Team has made available a CCPOR court planning guide to help prepare the courts and law enforcement agencies (LEAs) for planning and deployment. The planning guide covers:

  • Processing options
  • Hardware/Software
  • On-Boarding Dependencies
  • Training and Education
  • Court Acceptance Testing
  • Go-Live Readiness
  • Resource Planning
  • Post-deployment

The guide also addresses many of the common questions regarding project deployment activities, such as:

  • What do I need to know to prepare for CCPOR?
  • What is the deployment schedule?
  • What planning should I take into consideration?
  • How will this affect courts and law enforcement agencies?
  • Who's responsible for what parts of the system?
  • Who gets trained and when?
  • What is the post deployment plan?

When will CCPOR be deployed at my court?

Upon court commitment, a detailed deployment schedule will be developed with court consensus taking into consideration factors such as the level of integration, size of the court, geography, and bandwidth. Individual court project plans will also need to factor in court readiness concerning human resources, the local technical infrastructure, and funding.

Who determines my court's CCPOR deployment strategy and plan?

The CCPOR team works with each court to develop a specific deployment strategy and plan that makes the most sense for that court.

Who can my court contact to participate in CCPOR?

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding CCPOR Integration

What is the long-term vision for CCPOR?

For the foreseeable future, CCPOR will continue to operate by having images scanned into CCPOR with the associated protective order data being keyed into CCPOR by either Court or Law enforcement. In the near future, using an integration data exchange developed by the CCPOR Team, receive data feeds from Court CMS systems.

How do law enforcement agencies (like the sheriff's department) access CCPOR?

Sheriffs' departments can access CCPOR through the court's extranet using a secure channel. More details are available in the CCPOR court planning guide and LEA integration requirements.
