Indianapolis police have been granted an extension to meet the reporting deadline for the FBI's annual crime database.
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department could not make the original deadline, citing software problems, reported WIBC, RTV6's news gathering partner.
The deadline was also missed last year, when Public Safety Director Frank Straub was responsible for providing the crime data.
At the time, he said he had created a quality assurance unit to ensure another deadline wouldn't be missed.
This year, the police department, not Straub's office, is in charge of providing the data.
Police spokeswoman Sgt. Linda Jackson said she wasn't sure when the Department of Public Safety gave up the responsibility.
She said the problems have been fixed. She said the results will appear in this year's listings.
