diagonal image
December 8, 2009 Update
  • The deadline to submit 2008 legacy converted index crime statistics to be forwarded to the FBI has been extended to December 28, 2009.

  • Revised Supplemental (domestic violence, crimes against children, and attacks against school personnel) reporting guidelines are at the bottom of this page under Uniform Crime Reporting Program Forms and Reporting Guidelines. The revised collection form will not be posted until January to prevent premature use. Agencies may request a copy of the revised form through the I-UCR Program if needed for modifications to current report management systems.
  •  
    October 27, 2009 Update
    Crime In Illinois 2008 and the Executive Summary are now available for review.
     
    October 7, 2009 Update
    Revisions to the Illinois Uniform Crime Reporting (I-UCR) Program reporting guidelines have been finalized. The resulting Program is federally compliant while retaining select reporting elements of the current I-UCR Program. This approach ensures valued crime statistics outside the realm of the federal program are retained, as well as maintaining compliance to ILCS crime statistic collection mandates. The revised Program will be implemented in 2010 and is comprised of the following five reporting elements:
     
    • Index Crimes
    • Supplemental (domestic violence, crimes against children, and attacks against school personnel)
    • Hate Crime
    • Law Enforcement Officer Killed or Assaulted (LEOKA)
    • Homicide
    The revised Index Crime reporting guidelines are posted at the bottom of this page under Uniform Crime Reporting Program Forms and Reporting Guidelines. The reporting guidelines for the remaining reporting elements will be posted as they become available. There is no change to the current Hate Crime form or reporting guidelines which are also found at the bottom of this page under Uniform Crime Reporting Program Forms and Reporting Guidelines.
     
    June 30, 2009 Update
    Due to the recent multitude of first-time inquiries regarding the federal initiative, the ISP requested from the FBI and was granted an extension to the previous June 22, 2009, deadline to submit legacy (2006 and 2007) converted index crime statistics. The deadline has been extended to July 6, 2009. The I-UCR Program will forward the legacy data to the Federal Uniform Crime Reporting Program in one submission containing all records submitted by Illinois law enforcement agencies meeting the deadline. The federal program will not accept submissions direct from an agency.
     
    June 3, 2009 Update
    The Federal Uniform Crime Reporting Monthly Crime Index Form has been posted at the bottom of this page under Uniform Crime Reporting Program Forms and Reporting Guidelines. The form is to be utilized by agencies unable to access the electronic reporting tool due to technical issues. This form will not be accepted from an agency until it has been determined the electronic tool is inaccessible.
     
    May 29, 2009 Update
    The Illinois Uniform Crime Reporting (I-UCR) Program has been contacted by the Federal Uniform Crime Reporting Program regarding inquiries they have received directly from Illinois agencies inquiring on the appropriate procedure to forward converted legacy index crime statistics to the federal program. The federal program will not accept submissions independently from Illinois agencies. Legacy statistics MUST be entered into the I-UCR Program’s federal initiative on-line reporting tool, compiled, and submitted to the federal program by the Illinois Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Questions concerning the federal initiative may be directed to the I-UCR Program at 217/557-6482.
     
    May 4, 2009 Update
    The FBI has determined legacy UCR statistics (2006 through 2007) must be received by July 1, 2009. To successfully meet this deadline, Illinois agencies who have opted to voluntarily submit federally compliant UCR data must have statistics submitted to the I-UCR Program by close of business June 22, 2009. Though the Edward Byrne/JAG grant application requires three years of federally compliant UCR statistics as reported to the FBI, this is only one requirement in the process. Violent crime rates (Murder, Criminal Sexual Assault, Robbery, and Aggravated Battery/Aggravated Assault) play a significant part in the allocation of JAG monies, and agencies should review their statistics in these categories to determine if they could legitimately compete for JAG funding prior to undertaking the conversion of legacy data.
     
    April 6, 2009 Update
    The electronic reporting tool developed by the ISP to assist Illinois law enforcement agencies who elect to report Federal Uniform Crime Reporting statistics is now operational. The User Application form posted at the bottom of this page under Uniform Crime Reporting Program Forms and Reporting Guidelines must be completed and forwarded to the ISP for processing prior to an agency being awarded access to the reporting tool. Users will be e-mailed their user ID and password following processing, allowing for immediate access and entry capabilities.
     
    The ISP is working closely with the FBI, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to ensure Illinois agencies are eligible for future funding initiatives. This strategy has yet to be finalized, however, and effort expended to analyze and convert historical data may or may not result in your agency’s eligibility to apply for future grant funds.
     
    Agencies choosing to submit federally compliant statistics will be required to convert 2006 through 2009 statistics by applying the hierarchy rule to index crime statistics submitted previously to the Illinois Uniform Crime Reporting Program.
     
    Participation in the Federal Uniform Crime Reporting Program Initiative is voluntary for Illinois law enforcement agencies, and does not eliminate the need to continue to report statistics to the I-UCR Program through 2009 under the program guidelines. Converted statistics will be forwarded to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for consideration in determining agency eligibility for future grant funding opportunities.
     
    March 20, 2009
    Illinois State Police Director Larry G. Trent announced to Illinois law enforcement agencies an enhancement to crime reporting. This will be accomplished with the creation of an electronic reporting tool to assist agencies in voluntarily submitting crime statistics to the Federal Uniform Crime Reporting Program. The reporting tool was be operational on April 6, 2009. In order to have access to the new reporting system, agencies will need to complete and submit the on-line electronic reporting tool user application form found at the bottom of this page under Uniform Crime Reporting Program Forms and Guidelines.
     
    There are several significant differences in the federal and state program reporting guidelines. The federal initiative guidelines can be found at the bottom of this page under Uniform Crime Reporting Program Forms and Guidelines. Agencies must review guidelines and compile crime statistics in accordance to the federal criteria.
     
    The Federal Uniform Crime Reporting Program Initiative was created to assist agencies in reporting crime statistics to the federal program and is not replacing the Illinois Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Agencies are still mandated by state law to continue reporting to the state program however, it is the ISP’s intent to combine the reporting procedures in 2010 to allow for one reporting mechanism that will satisfy both state and federal requirements
     
    Updates to the program initiative will be posted and agencies are encouraged to review this site periodically for important information.
