On September 1, 1973, the OSBI assumed the statewide administration of the UCR Program in Oklahoma. When the OSBI assumed administration of the program, there were approximately 260 agencies reporting their crime statistics to the OSBI. As of December 31, 2021, there are 439 local law enforcement agencies reporting crime statistics, and the OSBI subsequently submits this crime data to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Traditionally, the FBI’s UCR Program accepted data via the Summary Reporting System (SRS). However, as of January 1, 2021, the FBI no longer accepts SRS data and now only accepts incident-based reporting data compatible with the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS). With the changes at the federal level, local law enforcement agencies in Oklahoma transitioned from submitting their crime data via SRS to submitting data into Oklahoma’s State Incident-Based Reporting System (SIBRS), which OSBI maintains in addition to the SRS. Beginning with Crime in Oklahoma, 2021, the report will use data reported to the SIBRS database. Due to this change, the data included in this document has changed, and includes data reported for the 52 Group A offenses, 11 Group B offenses, as well as special categories such as Domestic Abuse, Law Enforcement Officers Killed or Assaulted, and Hate/Bias Crime.
