January 29, 2010 Update
The revised I-UCR Program reporting guidelines and associated forms are now in effect. The on-line electronic reporting tool to be used to report 2010 Index crimes by agencies who have established connectivity is not available at this time. These agencies are requested to refrain from submitting index crimes to the I-UCR Program, and to instead check this website over the next several weeks for an update announcing the availability of the reporting tool. Agencies that cannot connect to the on-line electronic reporting tool will continue to complete the paper collection form to be mailed, e-mailed, or faxed to the I-UCR Program.
The revised I-UCR Program forms and reporting guidelines (Index and Supplemental) have been moved to the bottom of this page under Uniform Crime Reporting Program Forms and Reporting Guidelines. The Hate Crime form and reporting guidelines have not changed. Previous forms and reporting guidelines have been removed but remain available by contacting the I-UCR Program at 217/557-6482. The Homicide Supplemental and LEOKA forms and guidelines will be posted before the end of the month.
2010 will be a year of transition. It is understood that many agencies are working with their RMS vendors towards modifications that will allow reporting compliant to the revised guidelines, and that this may not be possible until well in to the year. Statewide training on the revised guidelines will begin again in March, and agencies may also opt to delay reporting until participating in a training session to ensure compliance to the revised guidelines. Agencies will not be contacted reference delinquent reports. Training dates, locations, and registration information will posted on this home page as they become available.
