Uniform Crime Reporting Program
The Idaho Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program participates in a nationwide statistical collaboration designed to collect accurate crime data from all law enforcement agencies in a "uniform" manner. This program is managed by the Idaho State Police, Bureau of Criminal Identification. Idaho was one of the first seven states to report UCR data under the National Incident Based Reporting Systems, known as "NIBRS." All Idaho law enforcement agencies participating in the UCR program submit their crime data under the NIBRS guidelines. Reporting definitions, rules, and guidelines are based on the Uniform Crime Reporting Handbook, NIBRS Edition, provided by the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The statistics collected are used to annually produce the "Crime in Idaho" publication. The program's primary objective is to provide a valuable tool to assist law enforcement in determining their priorities in the fight against crime. Secondarily, the program serves as a vital resource to the criminal justice and non-criminal justice communities as to the nature of the crime in Idaho.
