Changing the Way We Report Crime with the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)

Fairfield Police Department is proud to participate in the FBI’s National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). As the new national data collection standard, NIBRS captures details on victims, known offenders, relationships between victims and offenders, arrestees, property, and drugs involved in crimes for up to 10 offenses within an incident, representing a substantial shift in the way Fairfield Police Department reports crime.

Fairfield Police Department is changing how information on victimization and offending is collected and reported in order to meet federal data standards, improve operations, and better inform the public about the nature of crime in Fairfield. NIBRS data provide the detailed, accurate, and meaningful information needed about crime.

Fairfield Police Department is now reporting NIBRS-compliant crime data to the California Incident Based Reporting System (CIBRS) for submission to the FBI, Fairfield Police Department is making it a priority to do our part and support the national transition to NIBRS.
Transitioning to NIBRS will enable Fairfield Police Department to give context to specific public safety problems. With this change, officers will be able to provide the community with in-depth information about victimization and offending.

NIBRS collects information on nearly every major criminal justice issue facing law enforcement, including weapons offenses, drug offenses and drug involvement in all offenses, gangs, domestic violence, child and elder abuse, hate crimes, white collar crime, and terrorism.
The additional detailed crime incident data are captured in a standardized format, which provides greater analytic capability and makes NIBRS a superior crime reporting standard.

Fairfield Police Department went live with the launch of NIBRS, the National Incident-Based Reporting System and CIBRS, the California Incident-Based Reporting System, in November of 2022. The result is a more robust and complete data for law enforcement, researchers, and the public.

More information about the transition to NIBRS and an archive of reports will be available at!/.
