Ohio's law enforcement agencies voluntarily report their crime statistics to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program in one of two ways: through summary reporting or incident-based reporting.
Summary UCR Reporting provides basic aggregate statistics on the Part One crimes of murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson.
Incident-Based Reporting (Ohio incident-based reporting is called OIBRS) provides much more information on the details of the same crimes as the summary UCR Program, plus other crimes as well. OIBRS is a voluntary crime reporting program in which Ohio law enforcement agencies can submit crime statistics directly to the state and federal government in an automated format. This process has replaced the Summary UCR reporting process in many areas of the state.
To create reports from the crime statistics in the OIBRS database for certain violent and property crimes, click on the OIBRS icon.
To find out if a specific Ohio law enforcement agency is reporting Ohio Incident-Based Reporting System (OIBRS) crime data, Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) summary data, or not reporting their crime statistics, please contact Jim Luebbers at (614) 644-6797, e-mail or visit the Ohio Incident-Based Reporting System page.
The following statistics come from either the Summary UCR Program or the OIBRS program:

Please refer to the Crime by County - Column Definitions document as a guide to understanding the yearly Crime by County spreadsheets.
These statistical reports summarize data contained in the FBI's annual publications, with emphasis on Ohio data whenever possible.
OIBRS data was used to write these reports in order to demonstrate the utility of incident-based reporting.
These reports are summaries of Department of Justice publications, including the Bureau of Justice statistics. Links to the full report can be found within each document.
