The National Crime Statistics Exchange (NCS-X) Initiative is part of a national movement to expand the number of law enforcement (LE) agencies reporting crime data to the FBIâs National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). NCS-X seeks to transition a select sample of 400 LE agencies from across the country, including all of the largest agencies, to NIBRS, in order to use NIBRS data to generate national crime statistics. Under this funding announcement, BJS, in partnership with the FBI, will provide out additional funding to current NCS-X grantees in support of additional NCS-X implementation activities among state UCR Programs and local law enforcement agencies. The scope of work, project activities, and funding support will vary by grantee.
