On January 16, 2018 California Department of Justice released an Information Bulletin describing reporting changes to the UCR report for domestic violence. Senate Bill 40 now requires the collection and submission of information on strangulation and suffocation cases. Starting with RIMS 24.09+, agencies will be able to collect data and report it with RIMS Reports 24.06+.
Collection guidelines in RIMS is outlined in a memo released to RIMS system administrators on 1/25/2018. Sun Ridge Systems released an update to our UCR program within days of the appearance of the Bulletin.
