A National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) resource page is available to help agencies transition to NIBRS. Some of these resources come directly from the FBI, while others were developed internally during the I-UCR Program’s NIBRS implementation planning phase. This resource page will include updates on NIBRS transition activities when there is helpful information to share. Access the page by clicking on the NIBRS Transition logo at the right-hand side of the page.
In alignment with Governor JB Pritzker’s recent direction, and in view of world events related to the COVID-19 virus, the Illinois State Police (ISP), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and our host agencies have agreed to postpone NIBRS training currently-scheduled for March. This affects classes in Schaumburg (March 23/24) and Rockford (March 26/27). New training opportunities will be announced at a later date. We will continue to closely monitor world, national, and state events with an eye toward the classes currently scheduled in Springfield (April 20/21) and Carbondale (April 23/24), and will make a final announcement about these courses next month. Additionally, the ISP and the FBI are discussing alternate methods of lesson plan delivery that avoids the need for in-person training.
Students who wish to change their registrations from the northern classes to the southern classes can do so on the I-UCR reporting tool, found at
https://iclear.isp.state.il.us Be sure to cancel the current course registration before attempting to re-register for the alternate course.

Illinois State Police Director Kelly has issued his guidance for state law enforcement agencies concerning the mandated National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) transition.
The verification process for 2019 Index Crime statistics to be published in Crime in Illinois 2019 will begin on February 10, 2020, and conclude on March 9, 2020. The online reporting tool will be used to verify statistics. ONLY agencies that have been approved to submit paper-based reporting forms for the 2019 reporting year will receive verification reports and instructions via e-mail. Refer to the attachment below for additional information regarding the electronic verification process and the FBI’s publication deadline date.
Please review the attached flyer about the upcoming 2-day NIBRS Training from the FBI. Online registrations, via the I-UCR Reporting Tool, will be open in early February to submit names for Schaumburg and Rockford locations only. As a reminder, only two (2) personnel from each agency will be allowed to attend NIBRS Training to ensure the maximum number of agencies across the state are trained.

As we near the mandatory two-day, NIBRS training that will be offered this spring in different locations across the state, reporting agencies need to go to the on-line I-UCR reporting tool to confirm that their agency contact information (agency head/UCR contact name, email, telephone number, and authorized user(s)) is up-to-date. Training registration instructions will be forthcoming in early February.
