Police Department Crime Statistics and Reports:
(PDFs) Beginning January 1, 2006, the Rockford Police Department implemented a new police report writing and records management system called NetRMS. NetRMS incorporates NIBRS (National Incident-Based Reporting System) reporting which collects comprehensive data about a crime incident. NIBRS reporting replaces the traditional Summary UCR (Uniform Crime Reporting) that has been in place in the country since Rockford 1930.
