Pilot program to videotape proceedings lands in Tippecanoe Co. court

Tippecanoe is one of three counties participating in a pilot program aimed at making transcribing court proceedings easier.

Indiana’s Supreme and Appellate courts are setting up video cameras in Tippecanoe’s Superior Court Three. The recordings would serve as transcripts.

Commissioner Tom Murtaugh says there is an opportunity for cost savings by cutting back on paper and labor expenses.

The video cameras are in the process of being installed. Murtaugh says they should be up and running in August.

Marion and Allen Counties also are participating in the pilot program. Depending on the results, there is a chance the entire state could adopt the method.
