Important Information About CORI
The source of criminal history information contained in the iCORI database is the Office of the Commissioner of Probation (OCP), a subdivision of the Administrative Office of the Trial Court (AOTC). Accordingly, OCP is the only state agency that can change information that appears in the iCORI database. Further, only OCP can seal criminal convictions.
