April 24, 2018 | Guidebook for Agencies Preparing for NIBRS Transition 

 

The Law Enforcement Agency IBR Playbook: Guide to Implementing an Incident-Based Reporting System can provide helpful information to assist your agency through the transition. The NCS-X Implementation Team designed this Playbook to be the most beneficial to agencies that currently utilize a records management system (RMS) and some form of automated field reporting.

 

 

 

January 1, 2018 | FBI Funding has been Received

 

The Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS) has received FBI funding to automate its Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) system. The project will deliver a system for the electronic reporting of crime statistics by law enforcement agencies to be used in the Nevada (NV) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) crime publications. It will also provide  a reporting tool for agencies without their own records management system (RMS). The new crime reporting system will automate the crime reporting process that currently requires manual intervention and will reduce the effort required to maintain crime statistics and produce crime reports.

 

The state will transition from a summary based reporting system for crime statistics to an electronic-only National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) format. NIBRS provides much more detailed and comprehensive information for crime statistics than is gathered today in Nevada.

 

Funding

Federal funding of $3.4M was awarded to cover State fiscal years 2018, 2019 and 2020, contingent on Interim Finance Committee approval of the award. Nevada’s fiscal years run July 1 to June 30, and fiscal year 2018 started July 1, 2017. Planning for this project has been completed. DPS anticipates that the transition will take approximately three years. Funding covers project execution to include: much needed hardware upgrades, programming, testing and the release of an online data repository and a 6 month pilot.   

 

 

October 15, 2017 | Transition to the FBI National incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

 

Since the establishment of the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program in 1930, the FBI has gathered data on criminal offenses from some 18,000 local law enforcement agencies.

 

Currently,  “UCR” and its statistical data refers to the collection of known offense counts using the Summary Reporting System (SRS) methodology.  Over the years, the program has expanded to include measurement of other law enforcement activities. These efforts have resulted in the creation of a more detailed, efficient reporting process known as the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS).

 

Beginning January 1, 2021, the FBI UCR Program will only accept the real-time, electronic-based NIBRS methodology. Records Management Systems (RMS) used by Nevada law enforcement agencies will have to be made compliant to include the additional incident-based criteria according to NIBRS requirements. To facilitate this, cross mapping of the NRS and NIBRS codes must be completed so that the NOC file for each offense includes all NIBRS specifications.

 

Due to the new requirements, all Law Enforcement agencies in the state must transition from submitting crime statistics to the state via SRS methodology to using the NIBRS methodology within the next four years. This transition is necessary to remain in compliance with both Nevada Revised Statute 179A.075 and the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting requirements.
