Court Reporters

The primary purpose of any court reporting program is to provide an impartial means of capturing and preserving the spoken word so that an accurate verbatim transcript may be produced. The court reporting program administered by the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC ) began in 1965 and was designed so that court reporters would be present to record criminal proceedings in all trial courts exercising criminal jurisdiction. The trial courts are divided into 31 judicial districts that include one or more counties.
