The FBI responded to law enforcement’s call to upgrade and update reporting of the nation’s crime statistics by transitioning from the Summary Reporting System (SRS) to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) by January 1, 2021. Recognizing this as a monumental shift in practice, the FBI gave several years' notice, from February 9, 2016, to be exact, to law enforcement agencies, and now the deadline is just weeks away.
In this episode, host Jim Dudley speaks with Trudy Ford, the Section Chief of the Global Law Enforcement Support Section of the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division about what prompted the change, the improvements NIBRS offers and what the transition means for rank and file officers.
