JP3 Clerks Complete Court Clerk Certifications

 In an effort to improve customer service and efficiency, all clerks of the Williamson County Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 office (JP3) have all earned their Level One Clerk Certifications through the Texas Justice Court Training Center. 

The Texas Justice Court Training Center (TJCTC), through Texas State University, works with justices of the peace and constables from across the state of Texas to provide education events, training requirements and legislative updates. TJCTC offers a Court Clerk Certification Program to further professional development. The program is designed to test a justice court clerk's courtroom knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge to specific situations and cases. All JP3 clerks studied in groups for one and a half weeks and passed the Level One Clerk Certification Exam, earning their Certified Clerk designation. The next step for the group is to take the Master Clerk Certification Exam. 

“It is rare for a justice court to have so many active, certified clerks through the Texas Justice Court Training Center (TJCTC),” states Cherie Vasquez, chief of staff to Judge Evelyn McLean. “We are pleased to say that every clerk at the Williamson County Justice of the Peace  Precinct 3 office is certified through the TJCTC. In addition, we have two master court clerks, Rosemary Cooper and Susan Hughes. Rosemary was the fourth clerk in the entire state of Texas to achieve the master certification online, while Susan scored the second highest score as of now.”

Forty-four clerks around the state have attempted the master court clerk exam. Only seven have passed, with two of them being from the JP3 office of Williamson County.

With this newly acquired certification, it signifies the commitment each clerk has made to ensure that the JP3 court has skilled, qualified and dedicated employees. With sixteen clerks now being certified, it allows for there to be extensive knowledge and understanding on how court proceedings work and provides even better customer service. 

“I am proud of each and every one of our clerks for their knowledge, professionalism and steadfast work ethic,” said Justice of the Peace Precinct 3 Judge Evelyn McLean.  

The JP3 office is located at 100 Wilco Way, Suite 204, in Georgetown, Texas. For more information, visit their website https://www.wilcotx.gov/jp3.&nbsp
