Open Portal System Business Process Review

The Kentucky Open Portal System (KYOPS) program, headed by Kentucky's Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, is a collection of applications for criminal justice information sharing. Kentucky State Police (KSP) initially developed KYOPS to assist law enforcement agencies in collecting data and submitting it for the "Crime in Kentucky" report, but it has evolved into an essential tool for the criminal justice agencies within the state.

In collaboration with Kentucky's NICS Record Improvement Task Force, the Kentucky State Police conducted a business process review and baseline needs assessment of warrant and disposition management/reporting processes.
