Group B NIBRS Offense Codes
There are 11 Group B Offense categories and they encompass all of the crimes that are not Group A offenses, with the exception of most traffic offenses. Only arrestee data (or Group B Arrest Reports) are reported fro Group B crimes. The three-digit codes shown on the following listing are to be used for identifying NIBRS Group B offenses in Group B Arrest Reports. The codes are unique to NIBRS but were derived from the four-digit National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Uniform Offense Classification Codes in order to facilitate interrelating offense data between the NCIC and UCR systems.
