Answer:

According to the Tucson Police Department General Orders, Terminal Operator Certification (TOC) is a process required by the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and the United States Department of Justice. All law enforcement with access to state and federal databases contained in Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) are required to prove that they understand the information available to them and the laws and procedures involved in the release of that information. Law enforcement is required to receive a passing grade on the DPS Audit Unit test in order to obtain certification. Certification must be renewed twice yearly by the Records Superintendent.

Any employee with TOC can access CJIS data, but only for law enforcement reasons. Employees without certification can request CJIS data from employees with certification, but also only for law enforcement reasons. Employees without TOC cannot access CJIS themselves. The Records Superintendent is the only employee permitted to release information acquired through CJIS to the public or other law enforcement agencies.
