Public Safety Report System

Originating Agency Numbers (ORI) 

Originating Agency Numbers (ORI) and The Public Safety Report System (PSRS)

Currently, the Office of Court Administration is contracted with Automon to design, implement, and support the roll out of the Public Safety Report System (PSRS) Statewide. The system will be made available at no cost to individuals at the county and municipal levels.

Access to the system will require users to input an ORI number. The ORI number is a federal designation that provides agencies access to the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (NLETS) and, in Texas, the Texas Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (TLETS).

Automon will use the ORI to verify that users have the necessary access to view, attach, and forward data pulled from TLETS or NLETS.

Courts with Originating Agency Numbers

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 agency doesn’t already have one, and reach out to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) following the instructions below:

Courts should submit the following on agency letterhead:

      • 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

The preferred method of submission is email:  tcic.operations@dps.texas.gov

If the above option is not available, paperwork may be mailed to:

Texas Department of Public Safety
Michelle Farris, Chief
Crime Records Division MSC: 0233
PO Box 4143
Austin, TX  78765-4143

 

TLETS Access for New Users

An agency/court's ORI number will include access to TLETS, therefore, every new user under the ORI number will have to complete the New User training provided by DPS within six months of access. A User Request Form must be completed to attend the New User training. This form is password protected as personal information is needed to create an account. For access to the form or questions about the New User training, contact DPS via email at: TCIC.Training@DPS.Texas.gov

 

Terminal Agency Coordinator (TAC)

Both DPS and the Federal Bureau of Investigations require that all agencies with an ORI number appoint a Terminal Agency Coordinator (TAC). The TACs primary responsibilities include ensuring the agency is compliant with TCIC/NCIC policies, submitting User Request Forms to DPS, notifying DPS of any updates to an agency’s address or contact information. The TAC will also have the ability to review all trainings completed by their agency to ensure all personnel are in compliance with training and testing requirements. To notify DPS of the TAC in your agency/court please complete the TAC Admin Form below and submit it to DPS.

 

Forms and questions related to the TAC can be sent to DPS via email at: TLETS@dps.texas.gov
