Crime in the United States contains findings from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the offenses, known to law enforcement, released annually from its Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Because the FBI no longer prints these findings, Bernan Press continues to provide this practical information in convenient book form. In this intricately detailed source, legal and law enforcement professionals, researchers, and those who are just curious will find violent and property crime statistics for the nation as a whole--and for regions, states, counties, cities, towns, and even college and university campuses. Crime in the United States includes statistics for: -Violent and property crimes -Hate crimes -Crime trends -Victims, by type -Crimes cleared (those closed by arrest or other means) -Persons arrested (age, sex, and race) -Juvenile offenders -Law enforcement personnel (including the number of sworn officers killed or assaulted) -Characteristics of homicides (including age, sex, and race of victims and offenders; victim-offender relationships; weapons used; and circumstances surrounding homicides) In addition to data, Crime in the United States also includes text and pertinent figures that explain the data in greater detail and supplies a visual perspective of these major offenses. Violent crimes include: -Murder and non-negligent manslaughter -Forcible rape -Robbery -Aggravated assault Property crimes include: -Burglary -Larceny-theft -Motor vehicle theft -Arson Hate crimes include any crime motivated by bias against: -Race -Religion -Sexual orientation -Ethnicity/national origin -Disability Data include the following: offense type, location, bias motivation, victim type, number of individual victims, number of offenders, and the race of the offenders.
