Law enforcement agents are allowed to view information about any active warrants, according to the UJS. Details on inactive warrants issued within the past year are also available. Officers locate disposition material for criminal, traffic and nontraffic cases. To access any of these services, individuals need usernames and passwords.

Lawyers register for the Web portal online, UJS states. Using these secure logins, attorneys then submit documents electronically through the portal for new and existing cases. In 2015, UJS offers this service for Supreme, Superior, Commonwealth and some Common Pleas courts. Filing fees for documents are also paid online through debit or credit cards. In addition, Pennsylvania's district attorneys handle some business through the site, such as updating offenses and making docket entries.

Individuals who are responsible for fines, court costs or restitution are able to make those payments through the portal, says UJS. Bail, probation and parole fees are also taken care of online. The general public has access to certain court proceedings and business, such as case details, calendars, assignments and purchases.
