Crime Statistics

We regularly publish or contribute to a series of statistical crime reports and publications, detailing specific offenses and outlining trends that can help you better understand crime threats both nationally and locally.

Uniform Crime Reports

Crime in the U.S. is the most comprehensive analysis of violent crime and property crime in the nation. The annual publication compiles volume and rate of crime offenses for the nation, the states, and many cities and counties. It also includes arrest, clearance, and law enforcement employee data. Use the online UCR Data Tool to research crime statistics since 1985 and in some cases back to 1960.

Hate Crime Statistics presents yearly data regarding incidents, offenses, victims, and offenders in reported crimes that were motivated in whole or in part by a bias against the victim’s perceived race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or disability.

Note: Although the Uniform Crime Reporting Program applies estimation procedures to account for populations covered by reporting jurisdictions, it does not use any estimation procedures to account for hate crime data from agencies that do not participate in the Hate Crime Statistics Program.

Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA) gathers data on felonious and accidental line-of-duty deaths and assaults of law enforcement officers. Tabular presentations include weapons used, use of body armor, and circumstances surrounding murders and assaults of officers.

The National Incident-Based Reporting System, or NIBRS, was created in 1991 to improve the quantity and quality of crime data collected by law enforcement by capturing more detailed information on each single crime occurrence. NIBRS has published one national publication and several specialized reports, including:
