Crime Reporting: NIBRS Process
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read the Project 2020 scenarios for the future of cybercrime – White paper for decision makers (Links to an external site.) and A Guide to understanding NIBRS (Links to an external site.) online resources, and watch the National Incident-Based Reporting System (Links to an external site.) video. It is also recommended that you review pages 1 through 41 of the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) User Manual (Links to an external site.).
The impact of computers and the Internet not only affects the types of crimes now committed globally, but also greatly impacts how crimes are reported, statistics are gathered, and ultimately how crimes are investigated and prosecuted. In your 400 word minimum initial post, address the following elements:
Guided Response: Review several of your colleagues’ posts and substantively respond to at least two of your peers by 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 of the week. You are encouraged to post your required replies earlier in the week to promote more meaningful and interactive discourse in this discussion.
Resources for crime prevention, investigation, and prosecution are constantly limited by economic trends and restraints. It is essential for law enforcement to consistently and diligently find ways to be more effective in resource allocation. The federal reporting systems of the UCR and NIBRS are two of the major tools that affect law enforcement budgets, priorities, and effectiveness. Evaluate these three concerns in your responses to your responses to your colleagues. Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on Day 7 of the week and respond to anyone who replies to your initial post.
