WIBRS is an incident-based reporting (IBR) system used by law enforcement agencies in Wisconsin for collecting and reporting data on crimes and arrests. Funds will be directed to the implementation of the IBR system to collect and submit data in support of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
