Point of sale machines implemented in all courts

The implementation of point of sale machines in courthouses across the island to facilitate transactions, such as the payment of traffic fines, bail bonds and maintenance allocations, has now been completed.

Director of Corporate Planning and Performance Monitoring at Court Management Services, Audrey Rose-Morgan, says the implementation was completed in December.

She notes that many times when persons go to court and are charged, offered bail or fined, they will be remanded if they do not have the cash to pay immediately.

She says the point of sale facility offers them on-time payment if they have a debit or credit card in their possession.

The point of sale facility was implemented following a successful pilot in six courts in 2016.
