All aspects of the data provided herein are susceptible to a degree of error due to the complexities of the process involved in compiling and programming the data.
Since 1930, the FBI has administered the Uniform Crime Report Program (UCR) and has continued to assess and monitor the nature and type of crime in the nation. The UCR’s primary objective is to generate reliable information for use in law enforcement administration, operation, and management; over the years the data has become one of the Country’s social indicators.
On September 1, 2020, the Richfield Police Department implemented the federally mandated National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). All federal, state, county, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies across the nation were required to transition to NIBRS by January 1, 2021. The FBI implemented the NIBRS requirement to improve the overall quality of crime data reported by law enforcement. NIBRS captures incident-level details about crime, including multiple offenses within the same incident. The move to the NIBRS-only data collection will offer law enforcement, government officials, and other data users richer details about crime victims, offenders, and offenses; better context to help understand crime occurrences; and a more comprehensive view of crime in the United States. NIBRS provides detailed incident information on 52 offenses. Additionally, NIBRS collects arrest data for those 52 offenses plus 10 others.
Because NIBRS includes additional offenses that UCR Part 1 and Part 2 Crimes did not, an annual statistical comparison cannot be made between UCR Part 1 and Part 2 offenses to Group A and Group B until there is historical NIBRS-only data.2021 Crime Statistics
