Welcome to ODPS Office of Criminal Justice Services

The Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS) is the lead justice planning agency for Ohio. OCJS administers grant funds to Ohio’s criminal justice constituents and coordinates Ohio’s comprehensive criminal justice plan. The agency safeguards federal and state criminal justice funds against waste to maximize the resources available in Ohio’s fight against crime. Grants are monitored for compliance, audited for accuracy, and evaluated for effectiveness.

OCJS also houses its own team of researchers and policy specialists who provide practitioners and policymakers with valuable information on many of the critical criminal justice issues facing our state. A substantial amount of this data is obtained from the Ohio Incident-Based Reporting System, which is one of the state’s most significant justice technology links.
