Real-time, centralized, intuitive, web-based warrant and protection order application for all of Ohio.

In response to the number of outstanding warrants and growing backlog of unserved warrants in Ohio, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine created the Ohio Governor’s Warrant Task Force in February 2019. The Warrant Task Force studied how Ohio’s 1,361 entities with access to the Ohio Law Enforcement Automated Data System (LEADS) utilize it and recommended a uniform statewide electronic system. Governor DeWine tasked Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted, as Director of InnovateOhio, with the development of a new uniform statewide electronic warrant and protection order system in partnership with the Ohio Department of Public Safety and the Ohio Department of Administrative Services.

The system will:



Be free to Ohio criminal justice agencies

Allow warrants and protection orders to be visible statewide, in real-time

Improve the accuracy of firearm background checks

Improve law enforcement situational awareness



Each of these improvements will help save lives and protect Ohioans.
