Uniform Crime Reporting Services
The time for improvement and the need for more precise data has arrived.
NIBRS implemented to improve the overall quality of crime data collected by law enforcement, captures details on each single crime incident - as well as on separate offenses within the same incident -- including information on victims, known offenders, relationships between victims and offenders, arrestees, and property involved in the crimes.
The program's focus is to provide a better understanding of crime in Nevada which will, in turn, assist criminal justice administrators, practitioners, and academics to plan, budget, and provide services to the public. Participation by all criminal justice agencies in the state program is imperative, and will assure program users they have the information needed to make good decisions.
Law Enforcement Agencies
Research states, the use of timely and accurate localized data to drive law enforcement operations toward more efficient and effective resource deployment is the benchmark for 21st-century policing. High-quality, detailed data is paramount for effective decision making. LEAs have records management systesm, incident-based reporting systems, and information sharing tools that provide data on crime incidents, suspects, victims, and arrests. Together, these resources can be assessed to identify local and regional trends, to effectively deploy resources, and to support data-driven policing initiatives.
Agency leaders, victim advocacy groups, and policy makers can use the detailed NIBRS data to better target scarce resources for both victim assistance and crime prevention. Analysts can use the data to examine geographic and season changes in crime across jursidictions, counties, states, and at regional levels. Unbiased, detailed, and comparable trend information to communities can both increase transparency and allow law enforcement the opportunity to explain important differencs between certain crimes to citizens.
