Idaho Crime Data
Idaho Uniform Crime Reporting Program
The Idaho UCR Program serves as the state repository for the collection of crime statistics. The program’s primary objective is to compile reliable information for use in law enforcement administration, operation, and management. As the UCR/NIBRS Program has evolved and the demand for transparency has increased, so has the demand for the data compiled under this Program. Members of the general public, such as legislators, media, academia, etc., have come to rely upon this data for changes in the level of crime from year to year. The Department makes every effort to ensure accuracy by providing training, as well as, quality control checks on the crime data reported by law enforcement agencies throughout the state.
Federal Crime Data
FBI Crime Data Explorer
The FBI's Crime Data Explorer (CDE) aims to provide transparency, create easier access, and expand awareness of criminal, and noncriminal, law enforcement data sharing; improve accountability for law enforcement; and provide a foundation to help shape public policy with the result of a safer nation. Use the CDE to discover available data through visualizations, download data in .csv format, and other large data files.
FBI National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)
Implemented to improve the overall quality of crime data collected by law enforcement, NIBRS captures details on each single crime incident—as well as on separate offenses within the same incident—including information on victims, known offenders, relationships between victims and offenders, arrestees, and property involved in crimes.
FBI Uniform Crime Reporting System
The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program generates reliable statistics for use in law enforcement. It also provides information for students of criminal justice, researchers, the media, and the public. The program has been providing crime statistics since 1930.
