The criminal offense codes provided are currently being used in MassCourts, the Trial Court's new case management system. It is presently in operation at most divisions of the District Court, Boston Municipal Court (BMC), and Juvenile Court Departments.
The link below points to a compressed zip file that contains 2 CSV files of offense codes as well as a third file with a description of the offense code data files. Contact information is also included in the third file if you need assistance.
This offense code information has been posted for the use of law enforcement agencies that wish to incorporate these codes into their own record management systems. This information will be updated periodically as required by statutory changes and system modifications. The offense code data is provided as it is currently stored in MassCourts. It is anticipated that, as progress continues with the development of the Massachusetts Integrated Criminal Justice System, the storage format and distribution method for offense code data will be modified.
