Crime Of The Century - A Chilling Look At Crime Statistics In The UK


some 80% of demand made on police, ongoing Standard management by the Centre must be seen as a given.


During 2006/7 NSIR formed part of the national audit framework alongside crime and the audit commission carried out a reconnaissance as part of each force’s year 3 NCRS audit. This framework has now ceased and audit is now a matter for forces to manage internally supported by baseline assessments conducted by the NPIA. The audit commission have made clear they will continue to undertake a certain amount of data quality reviews within the scope of audits they carry out as part of their national remit. From April 2007 data capture at the centre will be in accordance with the Annual Data Requirement (ADR).


The Principal Aim The principal aim of the National Standard for Incident Recording (NSIR) is to ensure that all incidents, whether crime or non-crime, are recorded by police in a consistent and accurate manner, so as to allow resulting data to be used at a local and national level to meet the management and performance information needs of all stakeholders.


Sub-aims: The NSIR project has ramifications for a number of areas of policing. It is generally agreed that the project will:


(a) allow police incident data to better inform, shape and support the Government’s Police Reform Agenda. This will include work in relation to the National Community Safety Plan, Citizen Focus and the Respect Agenda and the sharing of incident data within CDRPs and with CDRP partner agencies as now mandated under a Statutory Instrument. (b) allow Government, the Police and other agencies to quantify more clearly the totality of demand that is placed upon the ‘policing’ services, leading to improved policy-making and operational planning; (c) Support the continued development of the APACS national indicator set by allowing for the appropriate introduction of meaningful and appropriate KPIs and SPIs based around NSIR data. (d) Support the use of incident data at force operational level through the NIM (National Intelligence Model) process, tasking and by Neighbourhood Policing teams.

General Principles The following are general principles, which should be considered as the core elements of NSIR:


(a) The Standard should serve to support a victim and citizen focused approach to service delivery; (b) The NSIR should serve to promote greater consistency, accuracy and comparability between Forces in the recording of incidents;
