Rhode Island AG Adds Violent Offender Notifications

CPI OpenFox has enhanced the Rhode Island Attorney General (RIAG) Query Wanted (QW) transactions and NCIC Query (QH) transactions to their current OpenFox Criminal History Application (CHA) to notify a configured group when a query result is flagged as a Violent Offender.

CPI modified the OpenFox Message Switch processing configurations QW and QH transactions to query Computerized Criminal History (CCH) with specific attributes and then notify a distribution list when a user receives a hit on a Violent Offender. This project utilized existing Violent Offender Flag business rules and processing previously implemented by RIAG.

OpenFox® Message Switch Configurations

CPI implemented the following configuration changes on the Rhode Island State Police (RISP) OpenFox Message Switch and the RIAG OpenFox Gateway systems:

  • Configured a new message key (MKE) for notification queries that routes to the CCH by specific attributes.
  • Modified the current MKE configurations to spawn a new notification query transaction

CCH Database Configurations

When the OpenFox Criminal History Application (CHA) receives a VNQ search, the system processes the query transaction following the existing Violent Offender Flag business rules and processing:

  • If the search results in a “hit” in CCH and the record is flagged as a Violent Offender, then the application captures the type of query that resulted in the hit and sends an email notification to the configured list.
  • If the search results in a “hit” in CCH and the record is not flagged as a Violent Offender, then no notification is sent.
  • If the search results in a “no-hit” in CCH, the application will not examine the Violent Offender Flag and no notification is sent
  • The CCH query response is suppressed and no return is sent to the end-user originating the query.
