Scofflaw Centralized Collections
An amplified collections tool.
What is Scofflaw?
The Texas Scofflaw Program is a section of the Texas transportation Code, designed to help county and municipal governments hold law breakers accountable, by allowing a Tax Assessor-Collector of a county to reject vehicle registrations for customers with outstanding fines, fees, taxes, or who have failed to appear in a municipal or county court.
In a brief form it helps counties to increase collections of justice of the peace, county court of law, county clerk, property taxes and municipal court fines and fees.

How Does it Work?
Our software was built specifically for the Texas Scofflaw Program. We provide everything you need to begin an effective Scofflaw Program in your county. Our one-of-a-kind software allows you to effortlessly manage your city's and justice court's Scofflaw records. Clerks can easily access our custom-built search system, and within a few clicks, flag and generate a release form for the customer, automatically rejecting their vehicle registration. Once a plate is flagged, the system will add their information to your Flag/Clear report for the DMV.
In order to be cleared from the system, the customer must pay their fine, and return a completed release form. Once a customer has been cleared, their plate/VIN information will be marked as clear, and updated in your DMV Flag/Clear report.
Along with the Scofflaw Vehicle Flagging System, we have also developed a way to assist law enforcement offices with locating persons-of-interest. Our system allows your law enforcement officers access to upload details about specific individuals once they come to register their vehicles. A text and e-mail is immediately sent to the interested office, with information on the person-of-interest's current location and contact information for the supervisor on site.
We set out to create an efficient, effective, and easy-to-use software in order to help counties begin a successful Scofflaw Program. We succeeded. Designed by people with first-hand experience in beginning quality Scofflaw programs from the ground up, our software was specifically built to operate in the simplest and most effective way.
The Scofflaw Program is designed to help counties increase their revenue, not put a hole in their budgets. The program allows you to collect a $20 fee from any customer who processes a release form. We provide the entire software for your use, and all we charge is a percentage for every record cleared. Please contact us to talk more about a cost-effective solution for your county.
We know the security of your customer's information is important to you, and we feel the same way. Our entire system is encrypted with a 128-bit SSL, ensuring data transferred between servers is fully secure. All access to our system is monitored 24/7, and all activity is logged in our secure database. Access to the system is restricted by the module and any user can be locked out from the system at any time. All financial transactions are tracked and recorded on a balance sheet.
