Regarding crime statistics for law enforcement agencies, please remember:  

  1. The National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) and the Summary Reporting System are different reporting methods; both are considered to be Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR).
  2. NIBRS is replacing Summary Reporting so once a law enforcement agency converts to NIBRS, statistics submitted via NIBRS cannot be compared to the Summary-submitted statistics: The method of collection is vastly different. 
  3. The WWSO converted to NIBRS reporting during the last six months of 2011.
  4. This report represents the NIBRS data base as of February 28, 2014.  NIBRS data is fluid and changes whenever there is an incident update in the local records management system. 
  5. Until our state is 100% NIBRS for at least two (2) years, WASPC is unable to provide comparative “trends” for all offenses.
