The National Child Offender System (NCOS) helps police protect the community by enabling them to uphold child protection legislation in their state and territory. It is a web-based application that allows Australian police to record and share child offender information. It directly enables police in each state and territory to manage key information to meet their requirements under respective child protection legislation.

The NCOS consists of the Australian National Child Offender Register (ANCOR) and the Managed Person System (MPS):

the ANCOR allows authorised police officers to register, case manage and share information about registered persons. It assists police to uphold child protection legislation in their state or territory the MPS holds information on alleged offenders who are charged but not convicted, or after an offender's reporting obligations have been completed.
