Crime Statistics

The Federal Bureau of Investigations National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) was implemented to improve the overall quality of crime data collected by law enforcement. NIBRS captures details on each single crime incident, including information on victims, known offenders, relationships between victims and offenders, arrestees, and property involved in crime.
