Overview of This Information Collection
1. Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently-approved collection.
2. The Title of the Form/Collection: Supplementary Homicide Report.
3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: The form number is 1-704. The applicable component within the DOJ is the CJIS Division of the FBI.
4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies (LEAs). Abstract: Under Title 28, United States Code, Section 534(a) and (c), this collection requests homicide data from respondents in order for the FBI Start Printed Page 62763Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program to serve as the national clearinghouse for the collection and dissemination of homicide and other crime-related data and to publish these statistics in Crime in the United States. The two-sided SHR form collects details about all murders and nonnegligent manslaughters (including justifiable homicides) and negligent manslaughters. The details include the reporting agency; month and year; situation; age, sex, race, and ethnicity of the victim(s) and the offender(s); weapon type used; relationship of the victim(s) to the offender(s); and circumstance(s) surrounding the incident (e.g., argument, robbery, gang-related), if known.
5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: The estimated number of LEAs submitting SHR data to the FBI UCR Program monthly via the Summary Reporting System is 9,376. Annually, those LEAs submit a total of 112,512 responses (9,376 LEAs × 12 months = 112,512 responses annually). The estimated time it takes for an average respondent to respond is nine minutes. Therefore, the estimated annual public burden associated with the SHR data collection is 16,877 hours [(112,512 annual responses × 9 minutes per response)/60 minutes per hour = 16.876.8 total annual hours].
