Yearly Crime Statistics

The Federal Bureau of Investigation releases statistical crime reports and publications, detailing specific offenses and outlining trends that can help individuals better understand crime threats both nationally and locally (https://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/ucr).

The Crime in the U.S. report 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 countiesIn the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, violent crime is composed of four offenses: murder and non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Violent crimes are defined in the UCR Program as those offenses which involve force or threat of force.

The data presented in Crime in the U.S. reflects the Hierarchy Rule, which requires that only the most serious offense in a multiple-offense criminal incident be counted. The descending order of UCR violent crimes are murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault, followed by the property crimes of burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. Although arson is also a property crime, the Hierarchy Rule does not apply to the offense of arson. In cases in which an arson occurs in conjunction with another violent or property crime, both the arson and the additional crime are reported.

Below are the UCR crime statistics (add associated links), as reported to the FBI by the Elk Grove Police Department (EGPD). Be advised that EGPD was created in June of 2006. 2007 was the first full year in which crime statistics were reported to the FBI.
