Use of Force Submissions - Manually Entering a Zero Report

Law Enforcement agencies can accomplish submissions through various means, including electronic reporting systems, dedicated portals, or specified forms. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has an electronic repository for recording monthly UCR information and statistics, including SRS and NIBRS, Hate Crime, and Use of Force.

In this post, we'll cover the option for manually generating a Use of Force Zero Report.

*Note - We use the UCR Test Site in this example for illustrative purposes. The "live" UCR Site may have slight differences.

To access the Pennsylvania UCR Site, navigate to and log in using your Keystone credentials.
