The primary responsibility of the Clerk of Courts is the custodian of the criminal court records.  We also are the keeper of the juvenile delinquency and dependency court records. Clerk of Courts is live on the Pennsylvania Common Pleas Case Management System, also known as CPCMS.  All 67 Counties in Pennsylvania utilize CPCMS to facilitate the transfer of information and data from the Magisterial District Courts, Court of Common Pleas, and PA State Police.  The Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts is constantly updating CPCMS to keep up with ever-changing legislation and rules and to interface with other state and local agencies systems.  All of the case processing in Clerk of Courts is entered into CPCMS which helps to drive an efficient and effective criminal justice system.
