Uniform Crime reports, National Incident Based Reporting System and the National Crime Reporting Survey are all major crime reporting systems here in the U.S. Each crime reporting system has its own advantage and disadvantage towards the criminals and victims as well as the law enforcement involved. Each has a unique history on how it started and when, how it became as popular of a system as it is now and will it keep growing or will it one day start to fade into the background while other reporting systems take its place. Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) include official information about criminal events that has been provided to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from the law enforcement agencies that the said crime was first reported to. Some of the advantages of UCR programs are that citizens can be informed on the crimes that take place in certain areas we well as the types of crimes. This is a great benefit for any person wanting to know crime rates in their neighborhoods, or future neighborhoods. Mothers can see the crime rate in the neighborhood that their kid’s school is in, or the neighborhoods included in the route their kids walk to and from school every day. Although the down side to this is this program is not always accurate, in that it only shows the crimes that have been reported to law enforcement agencies. Statistics show that sexual assaults are reported more frequently than robberies and breaking and entering. Another disadvantage of the UCR program is how it defines and reports rape cases, only cases of rape that include a man raping a woman are reported, so rape against men or even same sex rape does is not included in the reporting program. Lastly the UCR program warns that it actually only shows the crimes that are reported by the law enforcements themselves. Meaning that everything that happens after the criminal event is out of the police’ hands, it does not get reported for the citizens to see. For example, if a woman
Crime is part of human activities and needs to be managed. No human society has ever been
totally free of deviants and it is unlikely that society will ever be. The more populated and
complex a society becomes the wider the range of anti-social conduct that must be controlled by
government using police power. The incident-based system reports on a much broader range of
crimes and includes data on the circumstances of the crime, the victim, and the defendant.

A confederal system is a system in which a number of slightly organized states hold a majority of the power, while the central government….
In addition, this ‘tough on crime’ logic extends to all three major components of the criminal justice system – the police, the courts, and prisons. This approach to crime control sets forth that the fear of harsh punishment is the most effective way to deter crime. The idea that the ‘fear of getting caught’ may prevent some types of criminal behavior and/or longer prison sentences, are not effective policies for reducing crime. At times victims of crime play important roles in terms of promoting….
