Established in 1986, the Organized Crime Investigations Commission assists local law enforcement agencies in combatting organized crime and corrupt activities. The Commission is composed of members of the law enforcement community, and is chaired by the Ohio Attorney General. They review complaints of organized crime and corrupt activities and monitor current investigations.
Any person can file a complaint with the Commission requesting the investigation of organized crime or corrupt activities. Complaints filed with OCIC are confidential under Ohio law. If your complaint does not lead to criminal charges, it will never
be subject to disclosure. If your complaint does lead to criminal charges, your complaint is confidential until criminal charges are filed, at which time it is still subject to certain Law Enforcement public records exemptions. For more information on how to submit a complaint to the Commission, email Investigative_Coordinator@ohioattorneygeneral.gov
Law Enforcement Proposals
When law enforcement submits a proposal to form an organized crimes tasks force, they should outline the scope and specifics of the investigation; a summary of the suspected criminal activity and targets involved; a plan for the investigation including time frame and counties involved; a list of participating agencies and prosecutors’ offices; a list of resources each agency will contribute; and an outline of what is expected from OCIC, such as funds for confidential informants or the purchase of contraband, electronic surveillance equipment, technical support, vehicles, office space, or other equipment not available from local sources. Please email Investigative_Coordinator@ohioattorneygeneral.gov
to be contacted by our staff to discuss a proposal (please indicate your affiliation with a law enforcement agency).
Audio/Visual Technical Expertise
OCIC supports local law enforcement by providing advanced audio/visual restoration and enhancement. Using sophisticated software and training, the OCIC’s A/V experts provide: forensic audio and video analysis, tape authenticity, forensic animation (producing 3D reconstructions of a crime scene and 3D still prints), reconstruction of damaged tapes, digital prints, analog and digital audio and video duplication, and format changes. OCIC may also lend assistance with criminal intelligence analysis and clerical support.
