Using NIBRS to Reduce Crime
This study released by the National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) examines using NIBRS data in Tactical Crime Analysis. This technique examines crime characteristics—the what, when, where, who, and how of each incident—to assist in problem-solving by identifying patterns and trends, developing investigative leads and suspects, and clearing cases. This case study highlights one agency's use of NIBRS data to address a spike in robberies.
