Idaho's domestic violence legislation does include same-sex romantic relationships. The state is NIBRS certified and reporting is mandated by the state with the result that approximately 99% of the law enforcement agencies are reporting incident-based data to the State Police UCR Program. Agencies can submit information directly using the Idaho Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (ILETS) or by sending extracts from agency records management systems. No extra data elements have been added to what is required by the FBI. The Idaho State Police's Statistical Analysis Center analyzes the law enforcement data and has published several reports focusing on domestic violence. The SAC is also responsible for conducting a victimization survey every three years, including questions on domestic violence and stalking. The 2008 survey was recently completed and the annual report will be available in December. The State Police also maintains the state database of protection orders, accessible to all law enforcement agencies.
The Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence does not collect data from local agencies; this instead falls to the Idaho Council on Domestic Violence and Victim Assistance. The Council collects summary data from the 47 agencies receiving state funds, which covers the majority of programs in the state. All information is entered directly into databases maintained by the Council.
The Idaho Industrial Commission's Crime Victims Compensation Program collects information on victims applying for compensation. The information includes victim and offense information, as well as the relationship of the offender to the victim.
President's Family Justice Center Initiative
The PFJCI is a pilot program administered by the Office on Violence Against Women that has awarded more than $20 million to 15 communities across the country for the planning, development, and establishment of comprehensive domestic violence victim service and support centers. The goal of the PFJCI is to make a victim's search for help and justice more efficient and effective by bringing professionals who provide an array of services together under one roof. One of the first centers, the Nampa Family Justice Center brings together a variety of partners to provide services to domestic violence victims.
