Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $50,069)

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 New Hampshire Statistical Analysis Center (SAC) is located within the New Hampshire Department of Justice, which is also the state administrative agency. The SAC will use SJS funds to continue its efforts to develop a comprehensive National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS) data structure by implementing the necessary upgrades to enable local law enforcement agencies in five New Hampshire communities to accurately map crime data within their jurisdictions. The crime mapping technology will provide law enforcement agencies access to their own data, down to individual incidents, and enable them to produce and use custom reports to identify crime trends and inform decisions for resource allocation. Additionally, the crime mapping function will provide public policy makers, researchers, analysts, elected officials, the media, and the general public access to the most timely and complete crime data available within the state.
