County Attorney User Group

The County Attorney User Group owns and manages the MCAPS software package, a case management system designed for county attorneys. MCAPS is currently linked with MNCIS and BCA and we will be expanding the software to link with other systems. The user group works closely with the courts and BCA. MCAA is a member of MnCCC and represents the part-time attorneys using MCAPS throughout the state! This creates a user group of 45 voting members representing 58 counties and several cities.
