Crime in the United States, 2013
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)
