Because of their seriousness and frequency of occurrence, certain offenses comprise a Crime Index, or "Part I" crimes: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, human trafficking, and arson. Index crimes are commonly broken out into two categories: violent and property. Violent crimes include murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Property crimes include burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft.
Crime rates are reliable indications of crime only to the extent that that victims report crimes and that Uniform Crime Reports are submitted to the FBI. The UCR is a voluntary program in which local law enforcement agencies submit monthly reports to the FBI. Not all agencies report every month for many reasons. They may have budgetary restrictions, personnel shortages, inadequate training, or simply very little or no crime to report. In addition, the list of reporting agencies may not be consistent from month to month or year to year. Please consider the average months reported when assessing the quality of the crimes reported data by county.
