Monthly Return of Arson Offenses

Monthly Return of Arson Offenses Known to Law Enforcement (OMB Form No. 1110-0008)

Column 4, Number of Actual Offenses

Search the database for records with the following data elements and all specified data values:

Data Element 1 (ORI Number)—all incidents with the same ORI number.

Data Element 3 (Incident Date/Hour)—month and year of each incident report for identical ORIs.  Use the month and year of the incident date or, when the incident date is unknown, the report date (entry of a date with an indicator of R) to tally the offenses for Column 4.

Data Element 6 (UCR Offense Code)—offense code 200.

Data Element 7 (Offense Attempted/Completed)—entry of C only for Lines A–J; entry of A or C in Grand Total line.  Note that attempts are included in the Grand Total only because there are no breakdowns for property types available for these offenses.

Though up to ten property descriptions can be associated with Data Element 15, convert only one property description per offense for use on the arson form.  If there is more than one property description, structures take precedence over others.  A motor vehicle takes precedence over “total other.”  If there is more than one structure listed, use the one with the highest dollar value listed (Data Element 16 [Value of Property]).  The same is true for motor vehicles.  However, record the total value of all items burned in association with the offense, i.e., all of the property descriptions, in Column 8.

Using the records found in the previous search, select the specified data values associated with each data element to provide details for each respective line and column on the summary form.

Computer-generated totals of Lines A–J; include all attempts from Data Element 7.

 

Column 5, Total Offenses Cleared by Arrest or Exceptional Means and
Column 6, Number of Clearances Involving Only Persons Under 18 Years of Age

Search the database for records with the following data elements and all specified data values:

Data Element 1 (ORI Number)—all incidents with the same ORI number.

Data Element 42 (Arrest Date)/Data Element 5 (Exceptional Clearance Date)—to tally the offense clearances for incidents, use the month and year of the earliest arrest date or the month and year of the exceptional clearance date.

Data Element 6 (UCR Offense Code)—offense code 200.

Data Element 7 (Offense Attempted/Completed)—entry of C only for Lines A–J; entry of A for which there are clearances or C in Grand Total line.  Note that attempts are included in the Grand Total only because there are no breakdowns for property types available for these offenses.

Though up to ten property descriptions can be associated with Data Element 15, convert only one property description per offense cleared for use on the arson form.  If there is more than one property description, structures take precedence over others.  A motor vehicle takes precedence over “total other.”  If there is more than one structure listed, use the one with the highest dollar value listed (Data Element 16 [Value of Property]).  The same is true for motor vehicles.  However, record the total value of all items burned in association with the offense, i.e., all of the property descriptions, in Column 8.

Using the records found in the previous search, select the specified data values associated with each data element to provide details for each respective line and column on the summary form.

Note 1: If an arrestee segment is present for the incident, use the entries in Data Element 40 (Arrestee Sequence Number) and Data Element 47 (Age of Arrestee) to determine which clearance column(s) to use based on the following guidelines:

Adult (aged 18 and over) only—score in Column 5
Adult and juvenile (aged 01–17)—score in Column 5 only
Juvenile only—score in both Columns 5 and 6
Adult and person of unknown age—score in Column 5
Juvenile and person of unknown age—score in both Columns 5 and 6
Person of unknown age—score in Column 5 only

Note 2: If the incident is exceptionally cleared, use the entries in Data Element 36 (Offender Sequence Number) and Data Element 37 (Age of Offender) to score offender data in the same manner.

Note 3: If an arrestee segment is submitted with a W = Time-Window Submission and record position 80 includes the clearance indicator Y, clear the arson offense reported in that segment under the window offense(s) for Data Element 6, UCR Offense Code.  (This ensures that the arrest clears the arson offense, not the arrest offense [if different].)  Because the arrestee segment does not capture the data element that specifies the arson type, i.e., Data Element 15, select the arson type of Community/public for the clearance.  This subcategory was chosen by the UCR Program after analyzing clearance statistics published annually in Crime in the United States.

Note 4: If an administrative segment is submitted with a W = Time-Window Submission to report an exceptional clearance, clear the arson offense reported in that segment under the window offense(s) for Data Element 6, UCR Offense Code.  (This ensures that the arrest clears the original offense, not the arrest offense [if different].)  Because the arrestee segment does not capture the data element that specifies the arson type, i.e., Data Element 15, select the arson type of Community/public for the clearance. This subcategory was chosen by the UCR Program after analyzing clearance statistics published annually in Crime in the United States.  Furthermore, since the administrative segment does not include data elements to identify offender or arrestee ages, the offense being cleared will only be reported/converted in column 5, Total Offenses Cleared By Arrest or Exceptional Means, of the Monthly Return of Arson Offenses form.

Column 7, Offenses Where Structures Uninhabited, Abandoned, or not Normally in Use

Not available in NIBRS.

Column 8, Estimated Value of Property Damage

Search the database for records with the following data elements and all specified data values:

Data Element 1 (ORI Number)—all incidents with the same ORI number.

Data Element 3 (Incident Date/Hour)—month and year of each incident report or, when the incident date is unknown, the report date (entry of a date with an indicator of R) for identical ORIs.

Data Element 6 (UCR Offense Code)—offense code 200.

Data Element 7 (Offense Attempted/Completed)—entry of C only for Lines A–J; entry of A or C in Grand Total line.  Note that attempts are included in the Grand Total only because there are no breakdowns for property types available for these offenses.

Though up to ten property descriptions can be associated with Data Element 15, convert only one property description per offense and/or offense cleared for use on the arson form.  If there is more than one property description, structures take precedence over others.  A motor vehicle takes precedence over “total other.”  If there is more than one structure listed, use the one with the highest dollar value listed (Data Element 16 [Value of Property].)  The same is true for motor vehicles.  However, record the total value of all items burned in association with the offense, i.e., all of the property descriptions, in Column 8.
