Crime Diary is a number of related tools that facilitate new ways of collaborating between solicitors' firms, police station representatives and/or court advocates – both in the Magistrates' and Crown Courts.
Crime Diary enables firms of solicitors to have access to information regarding the availability of police station representatives, freelance advocates or advocates from other firms of solicitors. It also effectively enables them to "advertise" their availability to others in the Crime Diary community.
The purpose of Crime Diary is to help solicitors' firms:-
--> Get access to police station representatives, without having to pay the mark up associated with traditional agencies;
--> Work more efficiently by getting quick access to solicitor agents in unfamiliar courts without the pain of making numerous telephone calls;
--> Generate revenue by generating agency work in Magistrates' & Crown Courts where your advocates are already in attendance; and
--> Enter agreements with independent Higher Court Advocates - which provide that you might charge for clerking services provided to those advocates in the preparation, listing, billing, costs appeals and payment stages of a case
