Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2011, $59,779)

The State Justice Statistics (SJS) Program is designed to maintain and enhance each state's capacity to address criminal justice issues through collection and analysis of data. The SJS Program provides support to each state to coordinate and conduct statistical activities within the state, conduct research to estimate impacts of legislative and policy changes, and serve as a liaison in assisting BJS to gather data from respondent agencies within their states.

The North Dakota Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) functions as part of the Information Services Section of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, located within the North Dakota Office of Attorney General. A current state priority is the replacement of its PC software to capture additional data elements, including domestic indicator data. To help support this effort, the SAC will use SJS funds to develop a web form for use by local law enforcement agencies to key and submit their National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) data to the state repository.

The development of this web form and replacement of the PC software will enable the SAC to conduct detailed analyses on additional priority topics, including incidents of domestic violence, cargo theft, gang activity, and Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA) reporting.
