 Grant Information



The CMIS division of the Louisiana Supreme Court is tasked under the provisions of Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure Article 887 F. (1), Louisiana Revised Statues 13:753 and RS 28:54 to collect criminal disposition data from the Louisiana Courts for the reporting of those disposition to the Louisiana State Police Criminal History (CCH), Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicle and the FBI National Instant Check (NICS) so that criminal justice agencies have complete, accurate, and timely information.

CMIS Division staff members work with the Courts, Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement, Louisiana Sentencing Commission, Louisiana State Police, Louisiana District Attorney’s Association, Louisiana Department of Correction, Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles and FBI CJIS, to identify impediments in reporting complete, accurate and timely disposition information. Federal Grant funding is utilized to update technology and improve the ability to collect key case data elements which are critical for reporting complete and accurate disposition data.

The Supreme Court Annual Reports provide information on the work of CMIS for the past years but the following 2018 data shows the success in utilizing grant funds helped to improve disposition reporting by Louisiana.

The Criminal Records Project received 467,829 criminal records containing filing, disposition and sentencing information in 2018. Of those records, 98,339 contained information that was shared with the Louisiana Department of Public Safety for inclusion in a computerized history database that is accessible to law enforcement and the courts, to help enhance public safety.

Additionally, 64,029 disposition records were posted to the FBI National Instant Check System (NICS) database. Of those records, 52,709 were felony convictions; 4,252 were misdemeanor domestic violence, 586 were “incompetent to stand trial”, 96 were “not guilty by reason of insanity”, 1,753 Court Ordered Firearms Prohibition, 2,722 probation restrictios, and 939 Civil Orders of Judicial Commitment. The NICS is a national system that checks available records on persons who may be disqualified from receiving firearms. Currently, CMIS receives criminal data from 64 of 64 judicial districts.

The Traffic Records Project sends final disposition information on traffic cases to the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) for inclusion in the state driver’s history database. In 2018, 790,110 traffic records containing filing, disposition and sentencing information were received. Of those records, 186,453 were posted to the OMV database by the end of the year. CMIS receives traffic data from 61 district courts, 17 city courts, and 11 mayor’s courts.

The following grants are available to qualifying Louisiana Courts, to assist in improving the completeness, accuracy and timeliness of disposition data.
