LOGIS Interfaces with State CJRS

Date Posted:

The State of Minnesota, since 1936, has participated in the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.  In 1972, Minnesota began collecting crime related data as part of a computerized statewide Criminal Justice Reporting System (CJRS) program.  The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) was given the responsibility to collect activity information from the law enforcement agencies throughout the State.  This data was initially entered manually into a State program application called “Portals”.  Through technology, LOGIS was one of the first to interface to the State and send the data automatically.  One of the great benefits of our Printrak Law Records Management System (LRMS) is its ability to seamlessly interface with the State’s CJRS/UCR systems for these required monthly submissions.  The Support staff at LOGIS initiates the monthly upload of crime data to the State, saving each member agency countless hours of manual entry into Portals.  This also prevents duplication of entry and discrepancies, since what is entered into LRMS is what gets reported to the State.  The month-end submission process gathers new cases and also updates the cases of prior months.  The LOGIS staff also monitors the submissions to prevent errors and to meet deadlines.  Month-end statistical reports are then available online at the BCA site after the 10th of the month.  These reports are a tabulation of the number and type of offenses committed, cases cleared or solved, and the persons arrested.
