Improving State Criminal History Records Through Analysis: Profiling Drug Offenders
Group: Office of Criminal Justice Services
Through a partnership between the BCI&I and the Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS), a division of the Ohio Department of Public Safety, OCJS was able to obtain secure access to a portion of the CCH database. Records which were made available to OCJS included information on demographics, arrests, charges, and judicial processing. Identifying information, such as names and social security numbers, were excluded. Historical records were linked through a single unique identifier, the subject ID number. The database contains over 2.3 million names and 3.3 million arrest records specifying 4.2 million charges. Given the enormity of the database, it came as no surprise that occasional problems and issues were encountered during data extraction and analysis. Issues encountered on a regular basis are outlined below.
