Logging In

Who is authorized to use the Incident-Based Reporting site?

Police agency data entry personnel who have been authorized by their agency's administrator or TIME Agency Coordinator may obtain login access to this website from the Department of Justice TIME System Control Center.

How can I request a login?

You can request a login by completing an Authorization Form and sending it to the Department of Justice – Bureau of Justice Information and Analysis. View our Login Help page for more details.

What if I forget my password?

If the UCR program has added UCR website access to your TRAIN account, users can reset/retrieve the password by using one of the following options. Please note: your UCR account is attached to your TRAIN, Portal, eTIME, and WIJIS accounts. If your login information changed for any of these sites, then the login information for the UCR site would have changed as well.

  1. Go to the TRAIN login page and click on the "Forgot my password" link. Enter your User ID and answer your challenge question and change your password. Please keep in mind that once you change your password in TRAIN, it changes for Portal, eTIME and WIJIS passwords as well.
  2. If you have trouble recovering your password through the TRAIN login page, you can call the TIME System Control Center (TSCC) at 608-266-7633 for additional support. The TSCC is open 24x7 and can help answer login questions or provide guidance to reset or recover your password. Note: If you are using a temporary password, it must be reset by visiting the TRAIN website before accessing the UCR site.

How many accounts are allowed per agency?

There is no limit on the number of accounts, but the UCR program staff recommends that each agency have at least two user accounts, each user capable of submitting and managing UCR data.
