NIBRS Status: Developing*
*Although the state is not certified, Hoover has been certified to report NIBRS data directly to the FBI.
The Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center has developed a NIBRS-compliant online UCR incident-based reporting program. This program allows police departments and sheriffs' offices to submit data from all required UCR reporting forms via the internet. The system is available free via the world wide web to local law enforcement - an internet connection, an authorized user ID and password are all that are needed to access the system.
Information collected via the online program is stored in a secure database, and the system allows users to perform "real time" queries and searches of the database. Additionally, the new system allows users to enter data that are much more detailed than that collected through Alabama's previous UCR reporting system. These improvements give law enforcement personnel improved access to current statistics, crime trends, and other customized reports useful for making resource and policy decisions.
