Helping to find the right UCR solution.
A major finding of the Vision 21: Transforming Victim Services Final Report is that crime victim services must be designed with a clear understanding of who is being victimized and by whom.
NIBRS partners with a shared vision.
Victim service providers can use NIBRS data to identify patterns of crime and victimization that can justify the need for additional resources and guide decisions on optimal resource development.
Crime Data Comprehensive incident data on 22 categories of crime, which are further classified into 46 offenses. States and localities can better identify underserved victims and provide targeted training for victim services providers.
Victimization Data A comprehensive, more meaningful picture of crime in a community by providing information on specific types of crime, victim demographics, the relationship between victim and offender, and a more complete and comprehensive picture of family violence.
Clearance Data The current SRS collects almost no data on the details of criminal incidents, NIBRS overcomes this limitation by collecting arrest information. This data will allow law enforcement officers to track cases and update their files any time NIBRS receives new information. There is now an ability to analyize case clearance rates for specific crimes.
