One Hundred Seventy-six (176) Colorado Law Enforcement agencies participate in Incident Based Reporting (IBR) as part of the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. Of the one hundred seventy-six (176) agencies, one hundred fifty-three (153) contributed data for the IBR statistics.
Incident Based reporting allows agencies to take advantage of computer technology and report detailed incident level data. This data includes detailed information regarding all separate and distinct offenses which occur within one incident, as well as detailed victim, offender, property, and arrest data.
Crimes Against Society represent society's prohibition against engaging in certain types of activity. (UCR Handbook, NIBRS Edition, page 29). The victim of these crimes is society in general. For Incident Based Reporting purposes, one offense is counted for each Crime Against Society.
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation is grateful to the many Colorado
sheriffs and chiefs who have devoted considerable
resources to Incident Based Uniform Crime Reporting.
