DCJS Charge Code Manual

Revised 5/24/2017

The Charge Code Manual has been updated to include laws on the DCJS coded file as of the date noted above. Only currently active laws are included; repealed laws are not shown. You can obtain charge code information in two report formats: pdf and excel. (You can save the report and then reformat it, if desired.) Also, you can easily search on a law description, or portion of a description, in order to find a particular law. All law titles, not just penal and vehicle and traffic laws, are included.

Note: Only currently active laws are included; repealed laws are not shown on these reports.
