Minnesota Offense Codes (MOC)
Providing Incident and Arrest Data
Minnesota criminal justice agencies must provide certain incident and arrest data to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) to meet state and federal reporting requirements. Criminal justice agencies can report Criminal Justice Reporting System (CJRS) data through their records management system or through PSPortals. Data is also provided via supplemental forms.
All Minnesota law enforcement agencies must submit reports from the forms below using the SRS application at https://mnjis.x.state.mn.us. Agencies may use paper copies of these reports for internal use only. They should not be mailed, faxed or emailed to the BCA, but should be entered into the electronic Supplemental Reporting System (SRS).
Uniform Crime Reports
The BCA compiles a statistical report each year detailing the amount of criminal activity in the state. The data for this report is submitted by individual law enforcement agencies. The report includes offenses, clearances and arrests, as well as the number of law enforcement officers killed or assaulted, firearms discharges by law enforcement, missing children reports, police pursuits and bias offenses. Limited information is also available on law enforcement personnel. Information on classifying and scoring data can be found in the Uniform Crime Report Handbook.
The BCA's approved records retention schedule requires maintenance of seven (7) years of Uniform Crime Reports. With the posting of the 2015 report, the BCA will be removing the 1995-2008 reports from this website at the end of August 2016. All of the Statewide Summaries will be removed at the same time. If you wish to obtain an electronic copy of these reports and summaries, please download them by the end of August. These documents will be available after this date at the Minnesota Historical Society and/or the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library. Additional details will be available in August.
