DCJS' mission is to enhance public safety and improve criminal justice. DCJS has a variety of core functions and responsibilities that support law enforcement, criminal justice professionals and crime victim advocates across New York State. The agency administers and manages criminal justice grant funds; oversees a law enforcement accreditation program; maintains criminal history records and civil, criminal and crime scene fingerprint files; performs background checks for employment and licensure; oversees the state's DNA Databank in cooperation with the New York State Police Forensic Investigation Center; monitors the state's forensic laboratories for quality assurance and compliance with state and federal standards; administers the state's Sex Offender Registry; and ensures Breathalyzer and speed enforcement equipment used by local law enforcement operate correctly. The agency provides direct training to law enforcement and other criminal justice professionals; oversees county probation departments, alternatives to incarceration programs and the interstate transfer of probationers; collects and analyzes statewide crime and program data; and provides statistical information to the public and local law enforcement. Item2013-2014 Biennial Report to the 84th Texas Legislature(Office of the Governor, Criminal Justice Division, 12/31/2014)This publication presents data on the nature, volume, and extent of reported crime on school campuses, excluding colleges and universities, from 2012 to 2014. This study is based on data submitted monthly to the Tennessee Incident Based Reporting System (TIBRS), which collects data on all reported crime in the state. All law enforcement agencies as well as colleges and universities are mandated to report crime statistics to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) through the Tennessee Incident Based Reporting System (TIBRS). Among the findings were that the number of offenses occurring in schools from 2012 to 2014 decreased by 14.4% from 11,017 in 2012 to 9,428 in 2014; simple assault was the most frequently reported crime at 35.4% and the month of February had the highest frequency of school crimes, while the most frequently reported day for school crimes was Friday. Item2014 Crime in Tennessee(Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, CJIS Support Center, 4/27/2015)This annual statistical report is based on incident-based data submitted by every law enforcement agency across the state. All law enforcement agencies as well as colleges and universities are mandated to report crime statistics monthly to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI). The Tennessee Incident Based Reporting System (TIBRS) program is an incident-based reporting system designed to collect information on every single crime occurrence and on each offense and arrest within the occurrence. The most significant difference between TIBRS and traditional Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) system is the degree of detail in reporting. TIBRS collects information on 23 crime categories made up of 50 specific offenses (Group A offenses) compared to the UCR Summary reporting system that collects only eight Part 1 Offenses. Additionally, arrests are reported for 10 Group B offense categories in TIBRS. Under the UCR Summary system, only the most serious offense is reported. In TIBRS up to 10 offenses can be reported within the same incident and each offense is counted as a crime. This publication reports statewide data, as well as data for each agency. Item2014 Crime on Campus(Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, CJIS Support Center, 3/20/2015)This annual publication is mandated by the Tennessee law and presents the nature, volume, and extent of reported crime on the campuses and in the housing of Tennessee colleges and universities during calendar year 2014. The report is based on data submitted to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) through the Tennessee Incident Based Reporting System (TIBRS) program, which collects data on all crimes occurring in Tennessee. All law enforcement agencies, as well as colleges and universities, are mandated to report crime statistics to the TBI. This report is produced from the TIRBs program and comparison statistics are included. ItemThe 2015 Montana Crime Victimization Survey(Montana Board of Crime Control Statistical Analysis Center, 2017) Bunch, Jackson; McKay, Patrick; Ore, Peter; Hollist, Dusten; Moore, Elliot; Harris, ChuckIn 2015, The Montana Board of Crime Control’s (MBCC) Statistical Analysis Center—in partnership with the University of Montana Criminology Research Group (CRG), the University of Montana Social Science Research Lab, and the University of Montana Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER)—set out to construct a crime victimization survey to better understand crime in Montana. By asking Montanans about their personal experience of crime, the 2015 Montana Crime Victimization Survey (MVCS 2015) provides an important alternative to existing law enforcement crime data, such as the Uniform Crime Reports (UCR), the Montana Incident-Based Reporting System (MTIBRS), and national-level victimization survey data from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). Gathering data directly from Montanans about their experiences with criminal victimization provides insight into unreported crime (or crimes not known to police). By their nature, unreported crimes are absent from statistics obtained from the UCR and the MTIBRS. Though the NCVS also gathers crime data from victims, its design provides national-level statistics that cannot be disaggregated to the state level (with limited exceptions for some metropolitan areas). MCVS 2015 was designed to address the data gap between the UCR, the MTIBRS, and the NCVS by surveying the extent and nature of unreported crimes within Montana. [CVRL Note: the first 20 pages are an executive summary of findings followed by more details on methods and findings. See also the survey instruments, questions, formulas, and multiple tables showing responses for each question.] (Author Text) Item2017 Crime in Louisiana(Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal Justice, Statistical Analysis Center, 5/1/2019)To provide a picture of the changes in crime across the country and to provide useful data to Louisiana police agencies, statistics gathered are incumbent in recognizing problems in Louisiana. Statistics of criminal acts deemed most serious, most pervasive across the country, most likely to be reported, and most frequently committed are counted in the UCR Program. The Part I offense classifications include: violent crimes: murder and non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault; and burglary, larceny theft, and motor vehicle theft. Congressional mandated arson was added as a Part I offense category in 1979, and human trafficking, commercial sex acts, and involuntary servitude were added as Part I offenses in 2016. Item2017 Release of FBI Uniform Reports for Oregon(Oregon Criminal Justice Commission, 9/24/2018)This report shows the number of property index and violent index crimes reported in all states. Violent index crimes include murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Of these, aggravated assault is the most common violent index crime and usually has the most effect on the violent index crime rate. Property index crimes include burglary, motor vehicle theft, and larceny-theft. The most common property index crime is larceny-theft, of which approximately 75 percent are misdemeanors. Larceny theft is the crime that usually has the largest effect on the index property crime rate. This brief compares violent crime and property crime rates for Oregon to the Western States and the United States. In an effort to provide additional context, this report also includes violent and property index crime rates for Oregon and the US Total over the last 57 years from 1960 to 2017. Item2019 Law Enforcement Officers Killed or Assaulted (LEOKA)(Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, CJIS Support Center, 6/1/2020)2019 Law Enforcement Officers Killed or Assaulted (LEOKA) presents information on reported incidents of assaults or deaths of Tennessee law enforcement officers in the line of duty. It utilizes data from TBI's Tennessee Incident-Based Reporting System (TIBRS) program. In 2019, there were a total of 2,416 LEOKA victims reported across the state. The number of reported LEOKA offenses increased by 29.3% from 2016 to 2019. The most frequently reported offense was Simple Assault at 57.6%. Item2021 Release of FBI Uniform Crime Reports for Oregon(Oregon Criminal Justice Commission, 2022-12-01) Oregon Criminal Justice CommissionOn October 5, 2022, the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program released Crime in the United States, 2021, which shows the number of violent index and property index crimes reported to law enforcement agencies1. Due to the transition to NIBRS (National Incident Based Reporting System), the FBI also released new NIBRS estimation data2. The NIBRS estimates include the volume and rate of violent and property index crimes at the state and national level. The Oregon estimates for 2021 include reporting from 208 of 235 (88.5 percent) law enforcement agencies, while national level estimates include reporting from 11,794 of 18,806 (62.7 percent) law enforcement agencies. These crime data estimates have methodological differences from historical crime data released in prior years. ItemA Review of Uniform Crime Reports: 2020(Hawaii Research & Statistics Branch- Crime Prevention & Justice Assistance Division, 2023-04) Perrone, Paul; Ishihara, Kristin; Kaneakua, ZoeyIn 2020, a total of 37,597 Index Crimes* were reported in the State of Hawaii, yielding a rate of 2,672 offenses per 100,000 resident population, and reaching a new record low level since statewide reporting began in 1975. The total Index Crime rate in 2020 was 14.6% lower than the rate reported in 2019, and 22.4% below the rate reported a decade earlier (2011). There were 3,642 violent Index Crimes reported statewide in 2020, yielding a rate of 258 offenses per 100,000 residents. Hawaii’s violent Index Crime rate in 2020 was 3.1 % lower than the rate reported in 2019, and 2.7% higher than the rate reported in 2011. There were 33,955 property Index Crimes reported statewide in 2020, yielding a record low rate of 2,413 offenses per 100,000 residents. Hawaii’s property Index Crime rate in 2020 was 15.7% lower than the rate reported in 2019, and 24.4% below the rate reported in 2011. ItemAbout Uniform Crime Reporting Program Data(Illinois Criminal Justice Information Authority, 9/27/2016) Hughes, E.The Illinois UCR Program provides state-specific data for the UCR program. Those who use the programs to study crime trends should become familiar with the data source, its method of collection, and caveats needed to ensure proper data context. The researcher suggests resuming training on UCR guidelines as funding allows. Once UCR has transitioned to NIBRS, there will be access to detailed information that allows for closer examination of trends and issues in the criminal justice system. ItemAddressing Data Quality in Ohio's Incident-Based Reporting System: Application of Akiyama and Propheter (2005) Outlier Detection Methods(Ohio Department of Public Safety, Office of Criminal Justice Services, 1/1/2019) Nicholson, Kristina; Wedd, Alan; Patridge, CharlesCrime data are collected nationally through the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting Systems and the National Incident-Based Reporting System. Law enforcement agencies in Ohio have submitted crime data to the federal system since 1989 through the Ohio Incident-Based Reporting System (OIBRS). These crime data form the basis for crime reports and crime mapping that ultimately inform policy and practice throughout the state. Given the importance of crime data, continuous data quality and improvement is a high priority. While federal and state systems implement logical checks on the data submitted by law enforcement agencies, only the federal system have automated checks in place to determine the reasonableness of the data submitted by local agencies. At the local level, the onus of these checks is put on the data systems coordinator through manual inspections. This project moves to fill this gap by applying Akiyama and Propheter's (2005) federally-used outlier detection methods to Ohio's incident-based data. Additionally, the project expanded beyond Akiyama and Propheter (2005) by adapting methods to account for critical cut points that limit the number of agencies identified as outliers. This report summarizes the methods applied to Ohio's 2014 and 2015 OIBRS data and discusses the next steps in automating the implementation of additional data quality checks at the state-level. ItemAggravated Assault in Florida: A brief analysis of Aggravated Assault Trends from 2007 to 2017(Florida Statistical Analysis Center, 1/1/2019)The following data comes from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's Uniform Crime Report (UCR) system; the system provides standardized annual and semi-annual reports on crime statistics based on data gathered from across the state. The crimes recorded by UCR are classified as Index Crimes which includes crimes against persons. Persons offenses include: Homicide, Negligent Manslaughter, Rape (includes Forcible Sodomy), Fondling, Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Stalking, Simple Assault, Threat/Intimidation, or Simple Stalking. Aggravated Assault is the unlawful attack by one person upon another where either the offender displays a weapon or the victim suffers obvious severe or aggravated bodily injury involving apparent broken bones, loss of teeth, possible internal injury, severe laceration, or loss of consciousness.

Next, we describe challenges of creating a workload- based model for staffing C Detachment, followed by summaries of interviews with sergeants in C Detachment and a description of C Detachment's stated goals. The model is specified next, including a post-by-post staffing recommendation for C Detachment based on the 75th percentile of the number of reports, adjusted for leave and other factors. ItemAmerican Indian Crime in Idaho: Victims, Offenders, and Arrestees(Idaho Statistical Analysis Center, 2013) Kifer, MistyAmerican Indians have the highest victimization rates of all racial/ethnic groups in the United States (Perry, 2004). Despite the unusual disparity in the vulnerability to violent victimization, the pervasiveness of American Indian crime is rarely reported or acknowledged. The focus of this report is on the prevalence, nature, and consequences of crime in Idaho involving American Indians as victims and offenders. Four sources of information were analyzed to get a more complete picture of the amount and type of crime involving American Indians in Idaho: the Idaho Crime Victimization Survey, 2008; “Native American Crime in the Northwest: 2004-2005,” describing the offenses reported by tribal law enforcement agencies to the Bureau of Indian Affairs Office of Law Enforcement and Security Montana Board of Crime Control; UCR offenses reported by Idaho tribal law enforcement agencies to the FBI; and the Idaho Incident Based Reporting System (IIBRS). (Author Text) ItemAn Analysis of Intimate Partner Murders in Oklahoma: Using State Incident-Based Data(Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Center, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, 1/1/2019) Miller, KaraThe Center for Disease Control and Prevention defines an intimate partner as a person with whom one has a close personal relationship that includes an emotional connectedness and an ongoing physical relationship. The Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) analyzed the number of intimate partner murders (IPMs) that were reported by Oklahoma law enforcement from 2011-2016. The SAC conducted both qualitative and quantitative analyses of utilizing the State Incident-Based Reporting System (SIBRS) reports. Researchers also assessed the quality of the SIBRS reports and developed recommendations to improve data quality. For this research, the following relationships were included for the study: spouses; common-law spouses; boyfriend or girlfriend; dating relationships; or former spouses. ItemAn Analysis of Robbery in Oklahoma Using Incident-Based Reporting Data (SIBRS)(Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Center, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, 10/24/2019)The Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) is co-located with the state's criminal history repository, the state's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, and the State Incident-Based Reporting (SIBRS) Program. The purpose of this study is to increase access to and understanding of the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) enhanced data. By analyzing NIBRS compatible data, the SAC aims to demonstrate the value of SIBRS data to local agencies and government planners, as well as its utility for problem-solving and understanding crimes reported in Oklahoma. The SAC and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) hope to demonstrate the value and utility of SIBRS data to encourage all local law enforcement agencies (LEAs) in Oklahoma to commit to SIBRS reporting and to report quality data. While the number of robberies reported varied monthly, there was an increase in reports between January and August. The number of reported robberies then fluctuated significantly between August and November. During this period, reported robberies: decreased 41.0% from August to September, increased 95.7% from September to October, and then decreased 42.2% from October to November. The majority, 60.9% of robbery victims reported that they did not know the offender. 33.9% of robberies occurred at a residence, with 40.5% of residential robberies occurring between the hours of 9:00 PM and 3;00 AM. Money was the most reported property type stolen (26.3%). However, automobiles which accounted for only 3.9% of the types of property stolen, accounted for 38.8% of the total value of the stolen property. ItemAn Analysis of Robbery in Oklahoma Using State Incident-Based Data: Selected Findings(Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Center, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, 12/5/2019)The Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) conducted a study of robbery in Oklahoma using the State Incident-Based Reporting System (SIBRS). The purpose of studying robbery is to increase understanding of National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) enhanced data. Additionally, the SAC strives to demonstrate the value State Incident-Based Reporting System (SIBRS) data can have for local agencies, problem-solving, and understanding crimes reported in Oklahoma. SIBRS defines robbery as â€œthe taking or attempting to take anything of value under confrontational circumstances from the control, custody, or care of another person by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting the victim in fear of immediate harm.â€ The SAC reviewed a total of 357 reports of robbery for the calendar year 2017. Researchers found there were 476 robbery victims and that most robberies (33.9%) were reported to have occurred at a Residence/Home. See also the full report.
