Hate Crime by Jurisdiction
Download Printable Document
Jurisdictional data provide aggregate state totals and individual agency breakdowns of bias-motivated incidents (hate crimes) that law enforcement agencies submitted to the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
- The UCR Program’s Hate Crime Statistics Program included 14,422 participating law enforcement agencies in 2009. These agencies provided 1 to 12 months of data about bias-motivated crime. Of those agencies, 2,034 (14.1 percent) reported 6,604 incidents.
- The remaining 85.9 percent of agencies that participated in the Hate Crime Statistics Program reported that no hate crimes occurred in their jurisdictions.
- Table 12 presents the following data
for each state: the total number of participating agencies, the population
represented, the number of agencies that submitted data about hate crime
incidents, and the number of incidents reported.
- Table 13 provides the data from those
agencies that reported one or more hate crime incidents occurred in
their respective jurisdictions during one or more quarters in 2009.
- Table 14 lists the agencies that indicated
that no instances of hate crimes occurred in their respective jurisdictions
during the quarter(s) in 2009 for which they submitted reports.
- Tables 13 and 14
present the data by state, and each state is subdivided by agency type.
Agency types include cities, universities and colleges, metropolitan
counties, nonmetropolitan counties, state police agencies, tribal agencies,
and other agencies. The data published for universities and colleges
represent crime reported only by those individual university/college
law enforcement agencies that contributed to the UCR Program; the tables
do not specify information about educational institutions that reported
hate crime data via their local law enforcement agencies.
- Tables 13 and 14 also indicate the number of incidents reported by quarter within the year for which each agency contributed hate crime data to the UCR Program.
