The mission of the Office of Safety and Security is to foster improved communication, coordination, oversight, and accountability for all of the Peace Corps’ safety and security efforts. One of the responsibilities of the Office of Safety and Security is to track all crime events against Volunteers. '''''The Safety of the Volunteer''''' provides summary statistics for the previous calendar year. It also provides information on trends over the previous 10 years within the three Peace Corps regions: the Africa region; the Europe, Mediterranean, and Asia (EMA) region; and the Inter-America and the Pacific (IAP) region.

The data used to prepare this report comes from the Crime Incident Reporting Form (CIRF). In 2006, the CIRF replaced the Assault Notification and Surveillance System (ANSS), in use since 1990, and the property crimes sections of the Epidemiologic Surveillance System (ESS), in use since 1993. Both systems were utilized and managed by the Office of Medical Services (OMS) to capture reports of Volunteer safety incidents. They were both manual reporting systems that required posts to complete incident reports and fax them to OMS for database entry.

The CIRF was developed to transition the crime reporting system from this paper-based system to a more efficient software solution. The CIRF was implemented at the beginning of 2006 as a temporary electronic solution that would begin to streamline and automate the agency’s crime incident reporting process until a more state-of-theart application was completed. The new reporting system, a Smart Client application built upon web services, is due to be released in early 2008.

When a crime is reported to post by a Volunteer, the information is collected by the Peace Corps country director (CD) or other staff designated by the CD and is electronically submitted to headquarters via the CIRF application. With the advent of the CIRF, the more severe incidents are also categorized as “violent crimes” and the less severe ones as “non-violent crimes.” Incidents labeled as “violent crimes” require notification to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) investigative unit within the first 24 hours. The CIRF collects information on the following incidents:
+
|-
 +
|ET
 +
|Early Termination
  
* Four types of sexual assault (rape, attempted rape, major sexual assault, and other sexual assault);
+
|-
* Six types of physical assault (kidnapping, aggravated assault, major physical assault, death threat, intimidation, and other physical assault);
+
|FSN
* Five types of property crime (robbery, burglary with Volunteer present, burglary without Volunteer present, theft, and vandalism);
+
|Foreign Service National
* Five types of death (homicide, suicide, accidental, illness, and indeterminate cause); and
 
* The category of unknown, which captures events that do not meet the definitions of the reported incident categories.
