The FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division established and maintains the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), a part of the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. Currently, about 6,600 of the nearly 18,000 law enforcement (LE) agencies in the United States report their crime and arrest data to the UCR in the NIBRS format. Additional agencies continue to transition to NIBRS; however, at present, data submitted by the NIBRS-reporting agencies cannot be used to generate national- level estimates of crime and arrest known to law enforcement. To generate national estimates based on NIBRS data prior to the full transition of all of the nearly 18,000 LE agencies, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) and FBI CJIS are cosponsoring the National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) Initiative. NCS-X seeks to transition to NIBRS a carefully selected sample of 400 LE agencies from across the country, including all of the largest LE agencies. Once these 400 agencies have transitioned to NIBRS reporting and their data are combined with data from LE agencies already reporting to NIBRS, NIBRS data will be sufficient to produce the timely, accurate, and detailed national measures of crime and arrest needed and expected by today's LE professionals, policymakers, and the public.
