In May 2013 the Denver Police Department implemented the Unified Summons and Complaint (US&C) process. This process unifies multiple types of paper citations, excluding traffic tickets, into an electronic process. That information is transmitted to the Denver Sheriff, County Court, City Attorney and District Attorney through a data exchange platform as needed. As a result of this process a reported offense is generated which was previously not captured in National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS). For comparison purposes, crimes which were captured due to the US&C process were excluded from the data when comparing 2012 to 2013. An additional column has been added to the tables which reflects the actual number of crimes.
