Tribal Crime Data Collection Activities, 2011   [open pdf - 529KB]

"The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), in collaboration with other federal agencies and American Indian tribes, conducted several activities to develop the tribal data collection system as of June 2011. The data collection system establishes both new data collections and enhances current programs to carry out the requirements of the Tribal Law and Order Act (TLOA), 2010. BJS focused on improving tribal law enforcement reporting to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR) and developed direct data collection from tribal criminal justice systems, such as collecting information about the nature and operation of tribal court systems. Efforts also include activities and funding opportunities to improve tribal crime data collection through programs such as the National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP), the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), Byrne/JAG funding, and UCR training."
