* In response to the passage of the Hate Crime Statistics Act of 1990, the Attorney General designated the FBIs Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program to develop and implement a data collection system for nearly 17,000 voluntary law enforcement agency participants. With the cooperation and assistance of several local and state enforcement agencies already experienced in investigation of hate crimes and the of related information, comprehensive

guidelines for the compilation of hate crime were established.

Hate Crime Statistics Act was recently amended by the Violent Crime and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 to include crimes motivated by a bias against persons with disabilities. In order to comply with this amendment, the FBI began collecting data disability bias crimes on January 1, 1997. Also, the Church Arson Prevention Act, signed into law in July 1996, amended the Crime Statistics Act by permanently extending the data collection mandate.
