Regulatory Online Credentialing System (ROCS)


The Department of Criminal Justice Services embraces change to better serve our constituents while at the same time keeping our core principals constant and utilizing guiding principles to facilitate long-term planning:

  • High Performance
  • Customer Service
  • Outward Focus
  • Reduce Burden (both internally and externally)
  • Staff Productivity
  • Information Availability

  • To keep aligned with emerging technology and continuing to offer better service to the regulated communities, the Division of Regulatory Affairs launched an enhanced web-based application system and internal database as a tool to better serve your needs with access to information regarding licensing, certification or registration in the following programs: Private Security Services; Bail Enforcement Agents; Bail Bondsmen; and Special Conservators of the Peace.
