Crime Statistics:

Agencies may utilize crime data that is collected by the MBCC Statistical Analysis Center to include in their applications. MTIBRS Online Reporting (MOR) is an analytical/statistical tool that takes full advantage of Montana’s Incident-Based Reporting System. Users can select custom reports based on offense, offender/arrestee, victim, and property data elements. Users can also create their own custom reports based on many variables and export the reports in multiple formats (XML, or comma-delimited). Data from 2005 to the most complete current calendar year is available.

The MOR system can be accessed on the MBCC website at:

For assistance in accessing MOR or for technical assistance regarding crime statistics, agencies should request the information at least five working days before the RFP deadline.
