Ohio NORIS Core Service Bureau

The Northwest Ohio Regional Information System (NORIS) Core Service Bureau is a subscription service that provides mobile access to data critical for law enforcement function. The NORIS Core Service Bureau is hosted by NORIS.

Provided Services:

Access Ohio LEADS via NORIS – Provides access to state and federal vehicles, state/federal warrants and criminal histories.

Access NORIS Databases – Provides access to NORIS data, including local warrants, criminal


ORI:  If you do not have an ORI and are a valid law enforcement agency, NORIS can assist you in obtaining an ORI. Please contact Mike Antel (mike.antel@NORIS.org) if you have any questions.

LEADS Operator Certified:  To verify operator certification, the following information will be asked:

      • Name
      • Date of Birth
      • Social Security Number
      • Ohio Operator’s License Number

If your operators need certification, NORIS can assist with that process.

The subscription to the NORIS and LEADS systems uses concurrent licensing. You only need to purchase licenses for the amount of officers who need to use the service at the same time.  For example, if your agency has 50 officers but only 15 are on duty per
shift, you will only need 15 licenses.

All Core Service Bureau subscriptions include 24×7 phone and email technical support.
