Better Data For Evolving Crime Trends (2012–2022 NIBRS Transition)
This article from the Police Chief Magazine highlights the National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) initiative's current progress from its transition that began in late 2012, to produce U.S.-wide estimates of reported crime that included offense details and characteristics. The transition of the FBI's National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) to the National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) is funded by the Department of Justice (DOJ), Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS).
The IACP, along with the Integrated Justice Information Systems Institute, SEARCH – the National Consortium for Justice Information and Statistics, the Police Executive Research Forum, and the Association of State Uniform Crime Reporting Programs, were partners on the initiative led by RTI International.
