The Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) site is provided by the Texas Department of Public Safety to assist counties in reporting their Computerized Criminal History (CCH) dispositions and their Federal Firearms Reporting transactions.

The major areas of the site are:

The Inbox application lists all automatically generated and Site Administrator sent emails from the website.

The Electronic Disposition Reporting (EDR) application allows for the submission of prosecution and court transaction files and individual transactions.  Law enforcement agencies can add/modify charges online. Prosecutor and courts can update prosecutor and court disposition information online under this tab. EDR Reports allow authorized users to request reports for their county.  Most reports are available in PDF and CSV formats and can be downloaded if desired.

The EDR>Entity Administration section allows a local representative to manage CJIS users for their entity. Functions available are:

  • Approve users for CJIS access,
  • Reset passwords,
  • Remove users who no longer need access

The NICS Indices Entry (NIE) application allows submission of individual Federal Firearm reporting transactions to TxDPS, who forwards them to the FBI National Instant Criminal History Background Check system (NICS Indices).

The Latent section allows agencies to create and view Latent entries.

The Biometrics application executes services such as a Lineup creation and Mug Book search.
