Crime Stats & NIBRS for the Police Executive195

Everything you need to know about your agency’s numbers.

Seminar Overview

Who should attend:

Anyone interested in NIBRS crime reporting, accuracy and compliance.

NOTE: This course focuses primarily on NIBRS reporting requirements.  If the location you attend is in a state that is still reporting via the Summary Reporting System, the course will be very beneficial in preparing you for the transition to NIBRS.

Reading a NIBRS report is one thing; articulating the numbers to those who ask about them is something entirely different. We teach you what you need to know to understand, explain, review, and report your crime statistics correctly. Learn the common mistakes in crime reporting that lead to questioned crime stats. Ensure your agency stays out of the headlines and free of questionable crime reporting.

Topics include:

  • Transitioning to NIBRS (for SRS states)
  • Is your agency recording and reporting crime correctly?
  • Dealing with the media.
  • The difference between NIBRS definitions and state statute.
  • Are your officers reporting multiple offense cases correctly?
  • Validating and presenting NIBRS stats.
  • How are crimes counted?
  • How are cases cleared?
  • Arrests vs. clearances.
  • When can you really exceptionally clear a case?
  • Learn the most common causes of erroneous stats
