What are the resource needs of the office of Justice of the Peace?

Sylvia Holmes

Justice of the Peace, Precinct 3


It is essential that we have a well-trained administrative staff, and that we provide them with adequate financial support (competitive salaries, insurance, paid leave) to retain their knowledge and expertise. Modern courts utilize technology at increasing rates, and it is necessary that associates be trained on filing software, database retention, security methods for digital information, and best procedures for assisting community members seeking help from the court. JP3 is the only Travis County court without a security system, and I would insist on metal detectors being installed.
