New court notification system available

Published 10:32 am Thursday, December 27, 2018

The new court date notification service at www.NCcourts.ogov/services provides subscribers up-to-the-minute criminal court date notifications and reminders via email or SMS/text messages.

Subscribers receive messages a week prior to their court date and one day in advance of their court date. In the event of adverse weather conditions, like recently experienced, the notification system can advise subscribers of a new court date if court sessions are rescheduled.

To subscribe, a user must provide the following information: a valid North Carolina criminal court case number; the county in which the case was recorded; valid contact information (an email address or a cell phone number); and agree to the terms of use

A subscriber would be able to subscribe to more than one case but they would need to sign up for each case individually. Anyone could become a subscriber including witnesses, and victims.
