Posted on March 29, 2021 by Glenn Bischoff

March is designated as Women’s History Month. Coincidentally, on April 3, the Brazos Valley Council of Governments (BVCOG) celebrates its 30th anniversary.

Resources to Get Your Agency Across the NIBRS Transition Finish Line

Posted on October 13, 2020 by Glenn Bischoff

Considerable inconsistency traditionally has existed in terms of how law enforcement agencies from coast to coast gather and report crime data, as well as the types of data captured. The National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) was created to address that shortcoming.
