The Ohio Incident-Based Reporting System (OIBRS) is Ohio's version of the FBI's National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS). 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 UCR/Summary reporting process in many areas of the state.

Our most important goal is not only to report crime statistics to the FBI, but to provide benefits for law enforcement agencies participating in OIBRS. OCJS has upgraded the repository and crime mapping solutions to provide better usage of the data. The upgraded repository provides advanced queries and reports for improved analysis. Crime mapping is also providing to be an excellent tool for analysis of crime. Along with processing monthly crime data from Ohio law enforcement, OCJS provides training and assists agencies with automating their records and reporting process. Assistance is also provided to RMS software vendors who are seeking to obtain OIBRS Certification.
