Offense Cycle Number Query Application

As part of a strategic plan to increase sharing of the offense cycle number (OCN) among criminal justice agencies, the Missouri State Highway Patrol implemented the OCN Query Application, giving county prosecutors the ability to search the Missouri Uniform Law Enforcement System (MULES) for the OCN if it was not available when charges were initially referred.

Using this application, prosecutors in counties where the Karpel Case Management System (KCMS) is implemented can import the OCN and other pertinent arrest data directly, automating a data entry process. Prosecutors in counties without an automated case management system will also be able to query the OCN using a secure web portal.

For this project, Missouri designed system interfaces leveraging the National Information Exchange Model (NIEM), which reduced the total cost of ownershipof exchanging information among organizations. The design process was more successful than previous projects because of the new emphasis on system documentation, ensuring that all stakeholders understood the requirements and design of the system.
