The Association of State Uniform Crime Reporting Programs, Incorporated, (ASUCRP) represents participants of the National Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR) and the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) on the state, regional, and national levels, and provides a method of exchanging technical data on UCR/NIBRS methodology and efforts in a regional, state, or local setting.
PURPOSE & GOALS
The Association is dedicated to improving the collection, use, and the utility of crime data as reported through UCR/NIBRS, and all state and local crime reporting programs. ASUCRP meets these goals through:
- The sponsorship of education and training sessions at its annual meeting;
- The encouragement of special and general research projects dealing with the use of crime data;
- The development of cooperative relationships with policy-makers on the local, state, and federal level to encourage the development of improved systems to collect, analyze, and interpret crime data, and to use such data to develop effective public policy.
The UCR Liaison of the Association represents the membership at committee meetings of the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information System Advisory Policy Board UCR Subcommittee.
