The 2020-2021 MISSOURI CHARGE CODE MANUAL

Charge Code Manual


The Purpose of the Charge Code:
The Missouri Criminal Records Repository was initially established for the sole purpose of enhancing law enforcement safety. It tracks statistics for arrest data and conviction data using Charge Codes. It has since evolved into other non-law enforcement uses post-9/11 and is now used in the hiring practices of people in public trust positions such as teachers, nurses, daycare providers, nursing home employees, etc.
