Uniform Crime Reporting Program

The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program serves as the central repository for crime and arrest data in Iowa. Chapter 692.15 of the Code of Iowa requires law enforcement agencies within the state to report crime and arrest data to the Iowa Department of Public Safety’s UCR program, which in turn generates annual statistics. Data is also shared with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for inclusion in national publications.

Incident-Based Data

Iowa has reported incident-based data since the early 1990s. Incident-based data includes details on each single crime incident, as well as on separate offenses within the same incident, including information on victims, known offenders, relationships between victims and offenders, arrestees, and property involved in crimes.
