DCJS Charge Code Manual

Revised January 30, 2018

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 Only currently active laws are included; repealed laws are not shown.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Note: Only currently active laws are included; repealed laws are not shown on these reports.
