Offenses Known to Law Enforcement
by State by State Agency and Other Agencies, 2006
The FBI collects these data through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program.
The law enforcement agencies listed in this table are those agencies, regardless of jurisdiction, that are managed by their respective state, federal, or territorial governments.
Caution against ranking
Readers should take into consideration relevant factors in addition to the areas' crime statistics when making any valid comparisons of crime among different locales. Variables Affecting Crime provides more details concerning the proper use of UCR statistics.
- The data used in creating this table were from state, federal, and territorial law enforcement agencies submitting 12 months of complete offense data for 2006.
- The FBI does not publish arson data unless it receives data from either the agency or the state for all 12 months of the calendar year.
- When the FBI determines that an agency's data collection methodology does not comply with national UCR guidelines, the figures for that agency's offense(s) will not be included in the table, and the discrepancy will be explained in a footnote.
