Eric Garza, District Clerk of Cameron County, is proud to announce the successful completion of Phase One of the ongoing Records Management Project to make information more accessible to the public.

Phase One included the indexing and imaging of seven books which contain an index of all criminal indictments filed in the District Clerk’s Office between 1970 to 1990.  Over 15,000 cases were entered into the District Clerk Case Management System which includes the Defendant’s Name, Alias, Cause Number, File Date and Offense.

You can now search any criminal indictment filed from 1970 to the present via the online District Clerk Public Access Portal due to the computerization of these indexes.  Where before a manual search through these Criminal Index Books was difficult and could take anywhere from ten minutes to an hour, a search now only takes seconds using the defendant’s first and last name.

Other phases of the Records Management Project currently in progress include Civil, Criminal, Family, Adoption, CPS and Juvenile Indexes from 1940 to 1990.

The District Clerk is diligently working on this project to greatly reduce the amount of time and resources used in order to locate and access these records, making them available to you in a quick and efficient manner.

The Office of the District Clerk is working for you!!!
