The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) unit compiles statewide crime data from 56 law enforcement agencies. The data is analyzed for statistics, trends and is used for law enforcement training. The aggregated information is forwarded to the FBI for national level analysis and comparison.
The FBI is ending the UCR program in 2021 and will be accepting the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) data. In summary UCR, offense and arrest data is collected for 8 "Part I" crimes, and arrest data for 21 "Part II" crimes. NIBRS provides an in-depth look into crime events and provides more detailed data for analysis. NIBRS collects offenses in two groups. There are 24 offenses in Group A and 10 in Group B. Additional information that is collected includes homicide, arson, Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA), hate crimes, and domestic violence data.
Wyoming is currently working on implementing the transition to the NIBRS standard. NIBRS was introduced in the early 1980’s as an update to the 1930’s UCR. Recent events throughout the U.S. reinvigorated the need to record better data in order to understand and identify potential triggers in criminal activity. There are currently 17 states that are exclusively reporting NIBRS, 17 States that are UCR only, and 16 states that report both UCR and NIBRS. Please click here for more information on NIBRS.
