  Annotation: This report from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, presents information on tribal crime data collection activities for July 2010 through June 2011.
  Abstract: Highlights from this report include: in 2010, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) consulted with tribal leaders through a variety of forums including the Interdepartmental Tribal Justice Safety and Wellness Consultation (December 2010), the Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR) trainings for tribal law enforcement (2010) agencies, and the National Congress of American Indians, 2011 Executive Council Winter Meeting (March 2011); the number of tribes eligible for Byrne/JAG funding increased from 5 in 2008 to 22 in 2010; 140 tribal law enforcement staff received UCR training; competitive funding opportunities were provided by BJS to jurisdictions to improve criminal records in fiscal year 2011; and a multifaceted data collection system was developed by BJS that both established new collections and enhanced current programs. This report examines efforts and activities by BJS to support tribal crime data collection systems during fiscal year 2010. These efforts were undertaken as a requirement of the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010. The activities described in this report include increases in the number of tribes eligible for Byrne/JAG funding; the two competitive funding opportunities provided by BJS, National Criminal History Improvement Program (NCHIP) solicitation, 2011, and the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Act Record Improvement Program (NARIP) solicitation, 2011; and the data collection efforts used by BJS such as the Survey of Tribal Court Systems, the Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies, the Survey of Jails in Indian Country, the National Census of State Court Prosecutors, and the Federal Justice Statistics Program.
