Public Safety Report System

DPS Information 

Access to the system will require users to be assigned an ORI number. The ORI number is a federal designation that provides agencies access to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and, in Texas, the Texas Crime Information Center (TCIC).

Automon will use the ORI to verify that users have the necessary permissions to access criminal history information.

How to Obtain an Originating Agency Number

The Office of Court Administration is not responsible for administering ORI Numbers. If you believe your court needs an ORI number, please review the list above to make sure that your court or jurisdiction doesn’t already have one assigned. If you cannot locate an ORI for your court, please contact the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) following the instructions below:

Courts should submit the following on agency letterhead to

  • Court Name
  • Name of contact person
  • Physical address including the county
  • Court main phone number
  • Type of cases heard by this Court (Please specify whether cases are Criminal or Civil)
  • Email

If you have any questions about the ORI process, please contact TCIC Operations at

Terminal Agency Coordinator (TAC)
