Dataset
Description
Summary (SRS) Data with Estimates

Summary (SRS) data that has been estimated to create trends for crime occurrences on the state and national level. The FBI has traditionally included estimates in their annual publications. Download this dataset to see the FBI's estimated crime totals for the nation and its 50 states from 1994 to 2016.

Hate Crime

The Hate Crime Statistics dataset provides annual statistics on the number of incidents, offenses, victims, and offenders in reported crimes that are motivated in whole, or in part, by an offender’s bias against the victim’s perceived race, gender, gender identity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and ethnicity. Hate crime data is captured by including the element of bias in offenses already being reported to the UCR Program.

All law enforcement agencies, whether they submit summary (SRS) or incident-based (NIBRS) reports, can contribute hate crime data to the UCR using forms specified to collect such information.

Please see the UCR resources provided by the FBI for for more information on hate crime. Download this dataset to see totals for hate crimes across the country from 1991–2014.

Assaults on Law Enforcement Officers

The Assaults on Law Enforcement Officers dataset consists of reported assaults against law enforcement officers. The UCR Program defines law enforcement officers as individuals who ordinarily carry a firearm and a badge, have full arrest powers, and are paid from governmental funds set aside specifically to pay sworn law enforcement. Download this dataset to see totals for officers who were killed or assaulted in the line of duty from 1974–2016.

Police Employee Data

The Police Employee dataset is made up of data collected annually about law enforcement officers and civilians employed by police departments. The dataset contains information about the number of officers and civilians employed and the rate of police employees per a location’s population.

The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program defines law enforcement officers as individuals who ordinarily carry a firearm and a badge, have full arrest powers, and are paid from governmental funds set aside specifically for sworn law enforcement representatives.

Civilian employees include personnel such as clerks, radio dispatchers, meter attendants, stenographers, jailers, correctional officers, and mechanics provided that they are full-time employees of the agency.

Uniform Crime Reporting Program Participation Data

Participation data provides Information about agencies that report summary or incident-based data to the UCR program. This data helps understand the percentage of the population covered by reported data.

Cargo Theft

Cargo Theft is defined as “the criminal taking of any cargo.” This could also include physical theft as well as cyber theft and documentation fraud, where the ownership, destination, or contents of a cargo shipment is altered. For purposes of this definition, cargo shall be deemed as ‘moving in commerce’ at all points between the point of origin and the final destination.

Human Trafficking

The FBI began accepting data on human trafficking from states in January 2013. Human trafficking includes offenses related to commercial sex acts and involuntary servitude. Human Trafficking data available through the Crime Data Explorer includes offenses and arrests recorded by state and local agencies that currently have the ability to report this crime to the national UCR Program.

Arrest Data

National arrest data is estimated by the FBI and dates back to 1995. Arrest data contains monthly counts of arrests for various offenses broken down by age and sex or age and race. Not all agencies report race and ethnicity for arrests but they must report age and sex. Note that only agencies that have reported arrests for 12 months are counted for the annual counts that are included in the database.
