Criminal Offense Statistics

Crime data is displayed in a format that mirrors that required by the Department of Education and may differ from data reported under federal or state Uniformed Crime Reporting (UCR) programs. The difference exists because the Department of Education requires the inclusion of information that is not reportable under UCR programs.
