Gwinnett Police to use $3M grant to implement new crime reporting software

The Gwinnett Police Department is accepting a $3 million grant from the Department of Justice to transition to a new crime reporting software over the next two-plus years.

The county will transition to the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS), which is used to collect and report crime statistics, by Jan. 1, 2021, according to county documents.

The new system reports crime statistics to the FBI, and it also provides more details for reported crime incidents, according to Butch Ayers, Gwinnett County Police Chief.

"It also will be used to collect additional crime information published by the FBI," said Ayers, when addressing Gwinnett County commissioners this week.

"This funding will also be used to assist with the procurement of a new Public Safety Solution, which is a computer-aided dispatch management system software."

That software will be used to report crime data in conjuction with the new NIBRS software.

The grant requires no matching funds from the county.
