The Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) site is provided by the Texas Department of Public Safety to assist counties in managing their Computerized Criminal History (CCH) information and their Federal Firearms Reporting transactions.
The major areas of the site are:
The Inbox section lists all previously requested reports and any automatically generated reports and notices from TxDPS.
The Reports section allows authorized users to request reports for their county. Most reports are available in HTML, PDF, and CSV formats and can be downloaded if desired.
The NICS section allows submission of individual Federal Firearm reporting transactions to TxDPS, who forwards them to the National Instant Criminal History Background Check system (NICS).
The Admin section allows users to manage their security profiles. Users can change their password, update their security questions and responses, select a security photo and corresponding phrase.
