Video Conference Project 

The video conferencing project enables children involved in child abuse and neglect cases to participate in permanency and placement review hearings without them being physically present in the courtroom. OCA hosts and supports the hardware and software required to facilitate video conferencing between courts and residential placements. OCA has drafted a “how to” for use by Courts and other stakeholders who wish to use video conferencing for a particular hearing. OCA also maintains a list of Residential Treatment Centers with video conferencing capability as well as a list of courts. OCA developed a user guide, and also maintains a log of all hearings conducted, including the date, time, participating court, type of hearing, participating placement, length of hearing, any problems with the transmission quality or technical difficulties.
