Rockford, IL Crime Statistics
Beginning January 1, 2010, the Rockford Police Department will change the way police incident data is displayed in weekly and monthly offense count reports.
The Rockford Police Department records and reports NIBRS (National Incident-Based Reporting System) data. NIBRS criminal offenses are made up of Group A and Group B crimes that include homicide, robbery, assault, burglary, weapon offenses, drug related offenses, criminal damage to property, prostitution, forgery and theft.
Other offenses, such as most traffic related offenses, accidents, information for Police, medical assists, abandoned vehicles, lost and found and service to other agencies, are not criminal in nature and will be reported separately in the offense reports.
Weekly reports will display the breakdown and totals for Group A offenses.Monthly reports will display Group A, Group B and Non-criminal offenses as Additional Department Activity.
Weekly Crime Report
The Weekly Crime Report shows Group A offenses completed in police reports with comparisons to prior weeks and to last year. The offenses are grouped in National Incident Reporting System (NIBRS) offense categories. Up to ten offenses can occur in a single incident. For more information, visit the US Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation
websites on crime statistics.




Monthly Crime Index Reports

The Rockford Police Department submits the data contained in these reports to
the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a certified participant in the National
Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) program.
