National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

NIBRS Training for 2016 will be held September 13-14, 2016 in Pierre.

One statewide two-day NIBRS training will be held at DCI (1302 E. Highway 14, Pierre) for local law enforcement agencies. A FBI NIBRS Trainer will conduct the class.

Coding and scoring questions the SAC has received in prior years from local agencies will be incorporated into the training. There must be a minimum of 30 participants enrolled by August 19, 2016; 12 noon Central Time in order to conduct this training.

The SAC Criminal Statistical Analyst will be on hand to answer questions specific to South Dakota’s Incident-Based Reporting System and will work with individuals who would like the web-based NIBRS application demonstrated.

NIBRS is an incident-based crime reporting system designed to collect data on each single crime occurrence and on each incident and arrest within that occurrence. The most significant difference between NIBRS and the traditional UCR (Uniform Crime Reporting) System is the degree of detail in reporting.

Unlike the summary UCR system that collects data on only eight Part I crimes, NIBRS collects 24 crime categories made up of 52 specific crimes called Group A offenses. In addition to the Group A offenses, there are 10* Group B offense categories for which only arrest data are collected.

*As of January 2011, the FBI no longer collects data on Runaways which was classified as a Group B Offense

The goals of NIBRS are to enhance the quantity, quality, and timeliness of crime data collected by law enforcement and to improve the methodology used for compiling, analyzing, auditing and publishing the collected crime data. A major advantage of NIBRS, beyond the increase in data collected, is the capability to break down and combine crime offense data into specific information.

South Dakota became a NIBRS-only state in 2008. In 2006, the SAC released a new web-based NIBRS available to local law enforcement agencies in South Dakota. South Dakota was originally NIBRS certified by the FBI in early 2001.

Approximately 95% of the state's population is covered by NIBRS. Crime reporting is voluntary. Several agencies use the web-based NIBRS provided by the SAC. Some agencies have a private vendor for their RMS (records management system) and purchase a NIBRS component. These agencies then export their data and send their data file via email attachment to the SAC where it is then imported into the web-based NIBRS system.
