Eight Benefits of NIBRS to Victim Service Providers

This e-bulletin describes how victim service providers can use National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS)-a system for recording crimes known to the police-to gain a better understanding of specific types of victimization, determine disparities between victims known to law enforcement and those receiving victim services, and identify underserved groups of crime victims. Data presented from the 15 states which currently report to NIBRS can assist victim service providers to identify patterns of crime and victimization that can justify the need for additional resources and guide decisions on optimal resource development.
