The deadline for Law Enforcement agencies to be compliant with the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) is January 1, 2021. After that date, the FBI will no longer accept data under the Uniformed Crime Reporting (UCR) System. Given the importance of the data compiled by NIBRS for the evaluation of crime trends, justification of funding and allocation of resources, hitting the target date for compliance is of critical importance. This training session will provide examples of various Departments’ NIBRS conversion experience. It will also examine the numerous issues involved in the NIBRS compliance process including available resources for technical assistance, RMS systems, construction of memorandums of understanding, strategies for insuring public understanding of changes in data presentation and beneficial RFP language for RMS systems presented by representatives from the FBI, BJS and local, experienced experts.
