Stakeholders identify improvements to crime data reporting and information sharing as priority

January 31, 2013

Indiana remains one of only three states in the nation that lacks a centralized state collection program certified by the FBI and without active legislation mandating crime data reporting.

A recent report released by PPI provides an overview of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) priority data needs; an analysis of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) uniform crime reporting (UCR) summary data by jurisdiction in Indiana (this is an update to analyses conducted in 2007); and, a brief description of a new Indiana State Police records management system (RMS) that will include local crime data reporting.
