Volume 2 ~ JANUARY, 1931 Number 



Contents of the January Bulletin. 

This number of the bulletin contains the usual table of offenses 
known to the police for the month of January as reflected by the re- 
turns received by the Bureau of Investigation from contributing police 
departments throughout the country. Returns for the above month 
are also shown for several counties in various States, three of the four 
divisions of Alaska, and Porto Rico, while those received from State 
Police of a few of the States are also included. These miscellaneous 
returns, exclusive of figures submitted by police departments, are 
included in a separate table. In addition to the returns submitted for 
the month of January, the bulletin also contains a table showing the 
number of offenses known for various police departments for previous 
months, including returns from Alaska and the Philippines. These 
supplementary returns were received subsequent to the last issue of 
the bulletin. 

"Offenses known to the police" include those crimes designated as 
Part I classes of the Uniform Classification, occurring within the police 
jurisdiction, whether they become known to the police through reports 
of police officers, of citizens, of prosecuting or court officials, or other- 
wise. They are confined to the following group of seven classes of 
grave offenses, shown by experience to be those most generally and 
completely reported: Felonious hojnicide, including (a) murder, non- 
negligent manslaughter, and (6) manslaughter by negligence; rape; 
robbery; aggravated assault; burglary — breaking or entering; larceny- 
theft, including (a) thefts of $50 and over, and (6) thefts of under $50; 
and auto theft. 

"Offenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses which are reported by the police departments of contributing 
cities, and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 

The bulletin also contains tables indicating the extent of the report- 
ing area by States for 1930, for January of 1931, and the area repre- 
sented thereby. Tables are also included which show the average 
daily number of offenses of the designated classes for December and 
January, based on the figures received. 
1,049 Cities Reported Currently in January. 

During the present month 1,049 returns have been received from 
police departments for the month of January. These returns repre- 
sent an aggregate population of 45,027,860. A considerable number 
of supplementary returns for various months of 1930 were also sub- 
CD 



mitted, so that the number of cities which have at any time contri- 
buted figures on offenses known to the poHce reached 1,160, represent- 
ing a population of appro.ximately 46,564,425. 

In the following table are shown the number and per cent of the 
cities and the number and per cent of the population of those cities 
of more than 10,000 inhabitants, from which returns were received for 
the month of January, 1931. The classification is based on the popu- 
lation data in the summary recently issued by the Bureau of the 
Census. In addition to the number of cities listed in the table there 
were 404 cities of a population less than 10,000 of an approximate 
population of 2,154,246, which also contributed in January. The 
population represented by the returns from counties and others is not 
included in this table.

The above table does not include 404 cities of a population less than 10,000 aggregating a total of 2,154,246 
from which returns were received for January, 1931. 

Increase in Reporting Area Maintained in January. 

The number of cities contributing crime statistics has shown a 
steady increase each month since the project was inaugurated, and 
this gradual expansion was maintained in January when returns w^ ere 
received from 33 additional cities which had not contributed pre- 
viously. 

The number of returns by States, received and pubHshed for the 
month of January, is shown in the following table :

New Forms Distributed. 

Officials contributing crime statistics will note the new type of 
Return A forms distributed with this issue of the bulletin. There 
is no material change in the general outline of the forms, but it will 
be observed that they are salmon colored whereas those heretofore 
used were white. 



The brief instructions contained on the reverse side of these forms 
should be of considerable assistance to new contributors and it is 
recommended that they be referred to before inscribing the figures 
thereon.

Volume 2 FEBRUARY, 1931 Number 2 

Contents of the February Bulletin. 

This issue of the bulletin consists of the usual tabulation of offenses 
known to the police for the month of February as indicated by the 
returns submitted to the Bureau of Investigation by the various con- 
tributing police departments throughout the country. Returns for a 
number of counties in the various States have been received, as well 
as for three of the four divisions of Alaska, the Canal Zone, and Porto 
Rico. The figures submitted by these miscellaneous jurisdictions are 
included in a separate table exclusive of the figures submitted by urban 
police departments in the United States. In addition to the above the 
bulletin also contains a table showing the number of offenses known as 
reported by the various police departments in the country for the months 
previous to February, 1931. These supplementary returns, including 
a number of reports for months of 1930, were received by the Bureau 
of Investigation subsequent to the last issue of the bulletin. 

"Offenses known to the police" include those crimes designated as 
Part I classes of the Uniform Classification, occurring within the 
police jurisdiction, whether they become known to the police through 
reports of police officers, of citizens, of prosecuting or court officials, 
or otherwise. They are confined to the following group of seven 
classes of grave offenses, shown by experience to be those most gener- 
ally and completely reported to the police: Felonious homicide, in- 
cluding (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, and (b) manslaughter 
by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated assault; burglary — break- 
ing or entering; larceny-theft, including (a) thefts of $50 and over 
and (6) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. 

"Offenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses which are reported by the police departments of contributing 
cities, and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 

The bulletin also contains tables indicating the extent of the re- 
porting area by States for 1931. Tables are also included which show 
the average daily number of offenses of the designated classes for 
January and February of the current year, as reflected by the figures 
received. 
Extent of Population Area for 1931. 

The total number of cities, exclusive of county returns and others, 
which have submitted the monthly returns on offenses known to the 
pohce, either in January or February of 1931, is 1,161, representing 

(1) 



an aggregate population of 46,563,548. More than 90 per cent of 
these cities contributed returns for both months. 

The following table shows the number and per cent of the cities 
and the number and per cent of the population of those cities of more 
than 10,000 inhabitants from which returns have been received for 
1931. The classification is based on the population data in the 
summary issued by the Bureau of the Census. In addition to the 
number of cities listed in the table there were 487 cities of a popula- 
tion less than 10,000, of an approximate population of 2,639,336, 
which have also contributed returns during the current year. The 
population represented by the returns from counties and others is 
not included in this table.

67 New Contributors for February. 

During the current month returns were received from 67 cities 
which had not contributed crime statistics at any time previous to 
the publication of this issue of the bulletin. For the month of Feb- 
ruary figures were received from 1,077 cities. This number repre- 
sents an increase of 28 over the total number of current returns 
received in January. 

The number of returns, by States, received and published for the 
months of January and February, 1931, are showm in the following

Instructions for Reporting Auto Thefts. 

The attention of contributors is invited to the fact that the term 
auto theft as used in the Uniform Classification of Ofi'enses includes 
all cases where a motor vehicle is stolen, or driven away and aban- 
doned, or such a taldng is attempted. It does not include the taking 
of a vehicle without the owner's consent by any one having lawful 
access thereto for temporary use, when the car or vehicle is actually 
returned to the owner or the place from which it was taken. There 
should be excluded from this group, therefore, all those cases where a 
vehicle is taken by chauffeurs, garage employees, and individuals in 
a similar status who had no intention of stealing the vehicle. There 
should be included, however, in the monthly return, all cases where 
vehicles are taken and later abandoned by persons not lawfully en- 
titled thereto. It is suggested that officials refer to the schedules for 
the various States which will be found on pages 217 to 456, inclusive 
of the manual. Uniform Crime Reporting, should any question arise 
as to whether a particular offense of this class should be included in 
the monthly report.

The Bulletin for March contains a tabulation showing the number 
of offenses known to the police as reported to the Bureau of Investi- 
gation by contributing police departments of the country for that 
month. 

The above tabulation is designated Table I and is limited to those 
figures which are received from police departments in cities, towns^ 
and villages, as distinguished from the returns submitted by county 
sheriffs. State police, and officers in a similar status. These latter 
figures represent the returns received from county and other jurisdic- 
tions, including the possessions, and are published in Table I-A. 

The term "Offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I classes of the Uniform Classifica- 
tion, occurring within the police jurisdiction, whether they become 
kno'WTi to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of 
prosecuting or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to the 
following group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by experience 
to be those most generally and completely reported to the police: 
Felonious homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, 
and (6) manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated 
assault; burglary — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, including 
(a) thefts of $50 and over, and (6) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. 

"Offenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses which are reported by the police departments of contributing 
cities, and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 

A table is also shown indicating the extent of the population area 
represented by contributing cities, exclusive of county and other 
returns. In addition the number of current and supplementary 
returns received by States during the current year are pubhshed 
separately, while the average daily number of offenses, and the per 
cent of each offense class to the whole number reported, as reflected 
by the figures received, are also shown. 
Considerable Expansion Noted in March. 

During the current year 1,227 cities have furnished the Bureau of 
Investigation wdth monthly returns on offenses known to the police. 
Approxdmately 1,000 cities have contributed the figures for each of 
the three months of 1931, but the figure 1,227 represents the number 
of departments from which returns were received for any one month. 
The population represented by these cities is estimated to be 
47,135,301. 

For the month of March 1,140 cities contributed returns reflecting 
the number of offenses known of the designated classes which were 
reported to the police departments of those cities. Current returns 

(1) 



were also received from a number of counties in various States, State 
police, the first and third Divisions of Alaska, the Canal Zone, and 
Porto Rico. In addition to the above, figures were received for 
previous months of 1930 and 1931 from Bao;uio and Manila in the 
Philippines, and from two counties in Honolulu. 

In the following table are shown the number and per cent of the 
cities and the number and per cent of the population of those cities of 
more than 10,000 inhabitants from which returns have been received 
for any one month of 1931. The figures are based on the 1930 
census. In addition to those listed in the table there are 543 cities of 
an aggregate population of 2,985,403 which also have contributed 
returns during the current year. The population represented by the 
returns from counties and others is not included in this table.

Number of Contributing Cities Increases Substantially. 

Returns for the month of March were received from 1,140 cities 
which represents an increase of 64 over the number of current re- 
turns pubhshed in the February bulletin. Among this number con- 
tributing for March were 45 cities from which returns of offenses 
known to the police had not been received previously. It is interesting 
to note that for the month of March, 1930, returns were published 
for 541 cities. The increase over that number for March, 1931, is 599. 

In the table which follows are shown the number of returns by 
States received and published currently during 1931.

Monthly Figures Based on Offenses Known. 

The attention of contributing officials is invited to the fact that the 
figures compiled, according to the Uniform Classification of Ofi'enses 
are based upon the number of offenses reported to the respective 
police officers as distinguished from the number of arrests made. 
For example, if a report is received that a robbery has occurred and 
two individuals are taken into custody and charged with the crime, 
only one offense is recorded. Similarly, if a police department 
receives complaints to the effect that two offenses of robbery have 
been committed and one person is taken into custody and charged 
with the crimes, two cases of robbery should be recorded in the 
monthly return. 

The above comment should not be construed to mean, however, 
that only those offenses wherein arrests are made should be recorded. 
If a report is received to the effect that any one of the crimes listed 
on the monthly Return A has been committed, it should be recorded 
if investigation proves that the report was not unfounded. In other 
words, it is immaterial whether an arrest has been made when a 
report has been received to the effect that one of the ofl'enses of the 
designated classes has been committed. In each instance a record 
thereof should be made on the monthly return.

Volume 2 April, 1931 Number 4 



Contents of the April Bulletin. 

This issue of the bulletin contains the usual table showing the 
number of offenses known to the police as reported to the Bureau of 
Investigation by contributing police departments for the month of 
April. 

The above tabulation is designated Table I and contains only those 
figures which are contributed by police departments of cities, towns, 
and villages, as distinguished from the returns submitted by county 
sheriffs, State police. United States marshals in the possessions, and 
officers in a similar status. These latter figures represent the returns 
received from county and other jurisdictions, including the posses- 
sions, and are published in Table I-A. 

In addition to the above, tabulations are included showing the sup- 
plementary^ returns received since the last issue of the bulletin. The 
supplementary table is designated Table II. Table II-A of the bulle- 
tin contains figures which have been previously published but are 
corrected or revised in this edition. 

The term "Offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I classes of the Uniform Classification 
occurring within the police jurisdiction, whether they become known 
to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of prose- 
cuting or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to the fol- 
lowing group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by experience 
to be those most generally and completely reported to the police: 
Felonious homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, 
and (b) manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated 
assault; burglary — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, including (a) 
thefts of $50 and over and (b) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. 
The figures contained herein include also the number of attempted 
crimes of the designated classes excepting attempted murders classed 
as aggravated assaults. In other words,, an attempted burglary or 
robbery, for example, is reported in the monthly bulletin in the same 
manner as if the crime had been completed. 

"Offenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attempts, which are reported by the poKce depart- 
ments of contributing cities and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 

Tables are also included to show the extent of the population area 
represented by contributing cities, exclusive of county and other 
returns. In addition, the number of current and supplementary 
returns received, by States, for 1931 are published separately, while 
the average daily number of offenses and the per cent of each ofl'ense 
class to the whole number reported, as reflected by the figures received, 
are also shown. 

(1) 



Increase in New Contributors Continues. 

The number of cities which have at any time during the year 1931 
contributed returns on offenses known to the police to the Bureau of 
Investigation reached 1,272 in April. The population represented by 
those cities is estimated to be 48,440,282. This, of course, is exclusive 
of returns received from county and other jurisdictions. 

Police departments in 1,211 cities throughout the country forwarded 
to the Bureau of Investigation returns indicating the number of 
offenses of the designated classes reported to those police departments 
for the month of April. Returns for that month were also received 
from a number of counties in various States, State police in several 
jurisdictions, the First and Third Divisions of Alaska, Hawaii, and 
Porto Rico. 

In the following table are shown the number and per cent of the 
cities and the number and per cent of the population of those cities of 
more than 10,000 inhabitants from which returns have been received 
for any one month of 1931. The figures are based on the 1930 census. 
In addition to those listed in the table there are 565 cities of an aggre- 
gate population of 3,122,732 which also have contributed returns 
during the current year. The population represented by the returns 
from counties and others is not included in this table.

! 



The above tables does not include 565 cities of a population less than 10,000 aggregating a total of 3,122,732 
from which returns were received for 1931. 



Number of Regular Contributors Shows Notable Increase. 

During the month of April returns were received from 1,211 cities 
which contributed the figures for that month. This number repre- 
sents a very substantial increase over the number received for the 
previous month, when 1,140 cities contributed current returns. Thus 
it will be noted that the reporting area has increased with the gradual 
expansion which has marked the development of the national system 
of obtaining figures on offenses known or reported to the police based 
on the Uniform Classification of Offenses. 

In the table which follows are shown the number of returns by 
States received and published currently during 1931.

Murder and Nonnegligent Manslaughter. 

Contributors are reminded that under the above heading all unlaw- 
ful killings wliich are not the result of negligence should be recorded 
in the monthly return. The term ' 'nonnegHgent manslaughter' ' should 
not be interpreted to mean manslaughter which is caused by acci- 
dental though nonnegligent means, as the group includes only un- 
lawful killings for wliich the ojffenders are liable to prosecution. 
There should be excluded from this classification in the monthly 
return all homicides which are attributable to negligence or accidental 
causes. It will be seen, therefore, that the classification murder and 
nonnegligent manslaughter is limited to offenses of murder and man- 
slaughter not caused by negligence.

UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director, Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice 

Washington, D. C. 

Volume 2 May, 1931 Number 5 

Contents of the May Bulletin. 

The bulletin for May contains a table reflecting the number of 
offenses known to the police as reported to the Bureau of Investigation 
by contributing pohce departments for that month. The figures in 
the above-mentioned table are confined to those received from police 
departments of cities and towns, as distinguished from the returns sub- 
mitted by county sheriffs, State pohce, United States marshals in the 
possessions, and officers in a similar status. The reports from counties 
and other jurisdictions are contained in a separate table. 

In addition to the above, returns for previous months received since 
the last issue of the bulletin are also published. Corrections and 
adjustments in returns published in earlier issues of the bulletin, wHl 
be found in Table II-A. 

The term "Oftenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I classes of the Uniform Classification 
occurring \\-ithin the police jurisdiction, whether they become known 
to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of prose- 
cuting or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to the 
following group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by experience 
to be those most generally and completely reported to the police: 
Felonious homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, 
and (6) manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated 
assault; burglary — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, including 
(a) thefts of $50 and over and (6) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. 
The figures contained herein include also the number of attempted 
crimes of the designated classes. Attempted murders, however, are 
reported as aggravated assaults. In other words, an attempted 
burglary or robbery, for example, is reported in the monthly bulletin 
in the same manner as if the crime had been completed, 

"Offenses known to the pohce" include therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attempts, which are reported by the police depart- 
ments of contributing cities and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 
It should be noted, however, that all cities of the country are not 
represented, as wiU be observed from the population table and from 
the tables showing the number of current and supplementary returns 
received by States during 1931. Furthermore, Avide divergencies 
in the total number of particular crimes for various cities of approxi- 
mately the same population may in some cases not be indicative of a 
variance in the amount of crime in those cities but may be charged to 

(1) 



inadequate record systems, or a lack of understanding of the classifi- 
cation on the part of some officials. In such instances caution should 
be exercised, therefore, in arriving at any conclusions or deductions 
from the figures presented. 

The bulletin also contains tables showing the extent of the popula- 
tion area represented by contributing cities, exclusive of county and 
other returns. The number of current and supplementary returns 
received, by States, for 1931, are also shown, and tables indicating 
the average daily number of offenses and the per cent of each offense 
class to the whole number reported are included. 
Population Table. 

The number of cities which at any time during the year of 1931 have 
contributed returns of offenses known to the police to the Bureau of 
Investigation reached 1,304 in April. The population represented by 
these cities is 48,771,574. This, of course, is exclusive of returns 
received from county and other jurisdictions. Police departments in 
1,197 cities contributed returns of offenses known to the police for the 
month of May. Returns were also received from a number of counties 
in the various States, State police in several jurisdictions, the third 
division of Alaska, Hawaii, Canal Zone, and Porto Rico. Supplemen- 
tary returns were forwarded from various other possessions. In the 
following table are shown the number and per cent of the cities and 
the number and per cent of the population of those cities of more than 
10,000 inhabitants from which returns have been received for any one 
month of 1931. The figures are based on the 1930 census. In addi- 
tion to those listed in the table there are 590 cities of an aggregate 
population of 3,282,357 which also contributed returns at some time 
during the current year. The population represented by the returns 
from counties and others is not included in this table.

Percentage Table of Part I Offenses. 

The per cent of each offense class to the whole for 1931 is shown by 
months in the following table. These figures, however, are not in- 
tended to indicate crime trends for the particular period but merely 
reflect the per cent of each class of the designated crimes to the whole 



group. The figures are based on the total number of offenses re- 
ported by all contributing cities, exclusive of obviously defective 
and incomplete returns.

Manslaughter by Negligence. 

Under the classification manslaughter by negligence should be 
reported all unlawful killings, other than murder, which result from 
culpable negligence. The most common offenses in this group are 
manslaughters by vehicles. There may be instances, however, 
resulting in accidental death which should not be recorded as offenses 
of manslaughter by negligence. This group should include only 
those cases in which the circumstances are such that culpable negli- 
gence is so clearly evident that if the person responsible for the 
death were to be apprehended a charge of manslaughter would be filed 
against him. If, however, no criminal charf^.e-. could be placed 
against the party responsible an offense of manslaughter by negligence 
should not be entered on the monthly report.

UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director, Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice 

Washington, D. C. 

Volume 2 June, 1931 Number 6 

Contents of the June Bulletin. 

The June bulletin contains the usual tabulation of offenses known 
to the police in urban communities, based on the returns submitted to 
the Bureau of Investigation for that month. These figures will be 
found in Table I and do not include the offenses reported by county- 
sheriffs, State police, and officers in the possessions, which are included 
in a separate table designated Table II. Corrections and adjustments 
in previously published returns, and supplementary returns are like- 
wise published in separate tables. 

The term "Offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I classes of the Uniform Classification 
occurring within the police jurisdiction, whether they become known 
to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of prosecut- 
ing or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to the following 
group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by experience to be 
those most generally and completely reported to the police : Felonious 
homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, and (6) 
manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated assault; 
burglary — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, including (a) thefts 
of $50 and over and (6) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. The 
figures contained herein include also the number of attempted crimes 
of the designated classes. Attempted murders, however, are reported 
as aggravated assaults. In other words, an attempted burglary or 
robbery, for example, is reported in the monthly bulletin in the same 
manner as if the crime had been completed. 

''Ofi'enses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attempts, which are reported by the police depart- 
ments of contributing cities and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 

The bulletin also contains tables showing the extent of the popula- 
tion area represented by contributing cities, exclusive of county and 
other returns. The number of current and supplementary returns 
received, by States, for 1931, are also shown, and tables indicating the 
average daily number of offenses and the per cent of each offense class 
to the whole number reported are included. 

In publishing the reports sent in by chiefs of police in different 
cities, the Department of Justice does not vouch for their accuracy. 
They are given out as current information which possibly may throw 
some light on problems of crime and criminal law enforcement.

Population Table. 

The number of cities which at any time during the year of 1931 have 
contributed returns of offenses known to the police to the Bureau of 
Investigation reached 1,315 in June. The population represented by 
those cities is 48,953,414. This, of course, is exclusive of returns 
received from county and other jurisdictions. Police departments in 
1,180 cities contributed returns of offenses known to the police for 
the month of June. Returns were also received from a number of 
counties in the various States, State police in several jurisdictions, the 
first and third divisions of Alaska, Canal Zone, Hawaii, and Porto 
Rico. Supplementary returns were forwarded from various other 
possessions. In the following table are shown the number and per 
cent of the cities and the number and per cent of the population of 
those cities of more than 10,000 inhabitants from which returns have 
been received for any one month of 1931. The figures are based on 
the 1930 census. In addition to those listed in the table there are 596 
cities of an aggregr.to population of 3,317,137 which also contributed 
returns at some tine during the current year. The population repre- 
sented by the reti:n:.s fn.m counties and others is not included in this 
table.

Percentage Table of Part I Offenses. 

The per cent of each offense class to the whole for 1931 is shown by 
months in the following table. These figures, however, are not intended 
to indicate crime trends for the particular period but merely reflect 
the per cent of each class of the designated crimes to the whole group. 
The figures are based on the total number of offenses reported by all 
contributing cities, exclusive of obviously defective and incomplete 
returns.

Instructions for Preparing Monthly Returns. 

It is again desired to emphasize the fact that the figures in the 
monthly returns are based on the number of offenses known as dis- 
tinguished from the number of arrests made. For example, if a 
police department receives complaints to the effect that five dwell- 
ings have been burglarized, then five offenses of burglary — breaking 
or entering — should be recorded in the monthly return, irrespective of 
the fact that an arrest might or might not have been made in any 
one of the five cases. Figures furnished the Bureau of Investigation, 
based on the number of arrests made, can not be published in the 
monthly bulletin. It is also suggested that police officials refer to 
the instructions appearing on the reverse side of the form from 
which it will be noted that in column 2 of the monthly return should 
be entered the total number of complaints received that crimes of 
the designated classes have been committed. In column 3 should be 
entered the number of reports which investigation proves to be un- 
founded. The number entered in column 3 should be deducted from 
the number in column 2 and the remainder should be placed in 
column 4. The total of each of the above columns should be noted 
in the space provided on the return.

UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director, Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice 

Washington, D. C. 

Volume 2 July, 1931 Number 7 

Contents of the July Bulletin. 

Tliis issue of the bulletin contains the usual table reflecting the 
results of crime returns submitted for the month of July to the Bureau 
of Investigation by contributing police departments throughout the 
countr}". In addition figures are included for July and months 
previous thereto of the current year for counties and other juris- 
dictions, including several of the possessions. Corrections and 
adjustments in previously published returns are also shown. 

The term "Offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I classes of the Uniform Classification 
occurring within the police jurisdiction, whether they become known 
to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of prosecuting 
or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to the following 
group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by experience to be 
those most generally and completely reported to the police : Felonious 
homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, and (6) 
manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated assault; 
burglary — breaking or entering; larcency — theft, including (a) 
thefts of $50 and over and (6) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. 
The figures contained herein include also the number of attempted 
crimes of the designated classes. Attempted murders, however, are 
reported as aggravated assaults. In other words, an attempted 
burglary or robbery, for example, is reported in the monthly bulletin 
in the same manner as if the crime had been completed. 

"Offenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attempts, which are reported by the police depart- 
ments of contributing cities and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 

The bulletin also contains tables showing the extent of the popula- 
tion area represented by contributing cities, exclusive of county and 
other returns. The number of current and supplementary returns 
received, by States, for 1931, are also shown, and tables indicating 
the average daily number of offenses and the per cent of each offense 
class to the whole number reported are included. 

In publishing the reports sent in by chiefs of police in different 
cities, the Department of Justice does not vouch for their accuracy. 
They are given out as current information which possibly may tln-ow 
some light on problems of crime and criminal law enforcement.

Population Table. 

The number of cities which at any time during the year have con- 
tributed returns of offenses known to the poHce to the Bureau of 
Investigation reached 1,358 in July. The population represented by 
those cities is 49,342,102. The population represented by the returns 
received from county and other jurisdictions is, of course, not included 
in the above figure. Keturns were also received from a number of 
counties in the various States, State police in several jurisdictions, 
Alaska, Panama Canal Zone, and Porto Rico. Supplementary returns 
were also forwarded from various county sheriffs, Alaska, Hawaii, 
and the Philippines. In the following table are shown the number 
and per cent of the cities and the number and per cent -of the popula- 
tion of those cities of more than 10,000 inhabitants from which 
returns have been received for any one month of 1931. The figures 
are based on the 1930 census. In addition to those listed in the table 
there are 626 cities of an aggregate population of 3,479,466 which also 
contributed returns at some time during the current year. The 
population represented by the returns from counties and others is not 
included in this table.

Attempts To Commit Offenses Should Be Reported. 

The attention of contributors is invited to the fact that the rules 
for compihng crime statistics according to the Uniform Classification 



of Offenses provide that all attempts to commit crimes of the desig- 
nated classes shall be reported in the monthly return in the same 
manner as if the crime had actually been committed. For example, 
if an attempt is made to commit a burglary but through the inter- 
vention of the police or in some other manner the crime is not actually 
committed, a report thereof should be made on the Return A form. 
With respect to the reporting of attempted crimes it should be 
observed that attempts to commit murder should be classed as aggra- 
vated assaults in instances where the victim survives the attack. 
An attempt to commit larceny— theft should be reported under the 
classification Larceny — theft, (b) Under $50 in value. Furthermore,, 
an assault with intent to commit any of the designated crimes should 
be reported in accordance with the rules for recording attempted 
crimes. For instance, an assault with intent to commit robbery 
should be entered on the monthly report as one offense of robbery.

UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director, Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice 

Washington, D. C. 

Volume 2 August, 1931 Number 8 

Contents of the August Bulletin. 

The bulletin for August contains a table showing the number of 
offenses known to the police for that month as submitted to the^ 
Bureau of Investigation by police officials cooperating in the project 
of compiling national crime statistics. The figures are grouped intO' 
two tables, namely, Table I, wliich contains the figures for urban 
police departments, and Table I-A, which contains those furnished 
by counties, the possessions, and others. In addition thereto reports 
for months previous to August, received since the July issue of the 
bulletin, will be found in Tables II and II-A. Revised returns, 
which are those published previously but in which some adjustment 
has been made, are shown in Table II-B. 

The term "offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I classes of the Uniform Classifica- 
tion occurring within the police jurisdiction, whether they become 
known to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, 
of prosecuting or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to 
the followdng group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by expe- 
rience to be those most generally and completely reported to the 
police: Felonious homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent man- 
slaughter, and (6) manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggra- 
vated assault; burglary — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, includ- 
ing (a) thefts of $50 and over and (b) thefts of under $50; and auto 
theft. The figures contained herein include also the number of 
attempted crimes of the designated classes. Attempted murders, 
however, are reported as aggravated assaults. In other words, an 
attempted burglary or robbery, for example, is reported in the 
monthly bulletin in the same manner as if the crime had been com- 
pleted. 

"Ofltenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attempts, which are reported by the police depart- 
ments of contributing cities, and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 

Tables are published in the bulletin showing the extent of the 
population area and the number of current and supplementary 
returns received for 1931. Tables indicating the average daily 
number of offenses and the per cent of each offense class to the whole 
number reported are also shown. 

In publishing the reports sent in by chiefs of police in different 
cities, the Department of Justice does not vouch for their accuracy. 
They are given out as current information which possibly may throw 
some light on problems of crime and criminal law enforcement.

Population Table. 

The number of cities which at any time during the current year 
have contributed returns of offenses known to the pohce to the Bureau 
of Investigation reached 1,386 during August. The population 
represented by those cities is 49,634,67 1 . The population represented 
by returns received from county and other jurisdictions is not included 
in the above figures. In the following table are shown the number 
and per cent of the cities and the number and per cent of the popu- 
lation of those cities of more than 10,000 inhabitants from which 
returns have been received for any one month of 1931. The figures 
are based on the 1930 census. In addition to those listed in the table 
there are 644 cities of an aggregate population of 3,590,543 which also 
contributed returns at some time during the current year. The 
data in the following table are based upon the number of cities from 
which returns have been received, exclusive of county and other 
reports.

Larceny — Theft. 

It will be observed from the monthly Return A form that offenses 
of Larceny — theft are divided into two classes, namely, thefts involving 
property valued at $50 or more and thefts involving property valued 
at less than $50. Care should be exercised by officials submitting 
returns to avoid reporting under the first-named classification offenses 
of grand larceny and under the second classification offenses of petty- 
larceny, in States where the amount of $50 is not the sum differenti- 
ating between those two offenses. For example, in some States grand 
larceny is the felonious taking and carrying away anything amounting 
to $35 or over in value. Accordingly, if a larceny of $45 be reported 
to police departments in such States it should be recorded on the 
monthly return under the classification Larceny — theft (6) under $50 
in value, notwithstanding the fact that the offense may be termed 



grand larceny in the particular jurisdiction. The determining factor 
in ascertaining in which group an offense of larceny should be recorded 
is the value of the property or the amount involved. It should also 
be remembered that attempts to commit larceny should be reported 
under the classification (b) under $50 in value.

UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director, Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice 

Washington, D. C. 

Volume 2 September, 1931 Number 9 

Contents of the September Bulletin. 

The tables contained in the current bulletin reflect the number of 
offenses known to the various police departments as submitted to the 
Bureau of Investigation for the month of September. Table I sets 
forth the oft'enses as reported by urban police departments, Table I-A 
those furnished by counties, possessions, and others. Tables II and 
II-A contain the reports of months previous to September submitted 
since the August issue of the bulletin. Revised returns, which are 
those published previously but in which adjustments have been made, 
are shown in Table II-B. 

Tables are also published showing the extent of the population area 
and the number of current and supplementary returns received for 
1931. Other tables indicate the average daily number of oft'enses and 
the per cent of each offense class to the whole number reported. 

The Department of Justice does not vouch for the accuracy of the 
reports sent in by chiefs of police in different cities. They are given 
out as current information which possibly may throw some light on 
problems of crime and criminal law enforcement. 

The term "Offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I classes of the Uniform Classification 
occurring within the police jurisdiction, whether they become known 
to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of prose- 
cuting or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to the 
follovang group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by experience 
to be those most generally and completely reported to the police: 
Felonious homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, 
and (6) manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated 
assault; burglary — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, including 
(a) thefts of $50 and over and (6) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. 
The figures contained herein include also the number of attempted 
crimes of the designated classes. Attempted murders, however, are 
reported as aggravated assaults. In other words, an attempted bur- 
glary or robbery, for example, is reported in the monthly bulletin in 
the same manner as if the crime had been completed. 

"Offenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attempts, which are reported by the police depart- 
ments of contributing cities, and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 
Population Table. 

The number of cities which at any time during the year 1931 
have contributed returns of offenses known to the police to the Bureau 

(1) 



of Investigation reached 1,422 in September. The population repre- 
sented by those cities is 50,178,352. This, of course, is exclusive of 
returns received from county and other jurisdictions. Returns were 
also received from a number of counties in the various States, State 
police in several jurisdictions, the third division of Alaska, Canal Zone, 
and Porto Rico. Supplementary returns were forwarded from various 
other possessions. In the following table are shown the number and 
per cent of the cities and the number and per cent of the population 
of those cities of more than 10,000 inhabitants from which returns 
have been received for any one month of 1931. The figures are based 
on the 1930 census. In addition to those listed in the table there are 
667 cities of an aggregate population of 3,705,940 which also contrib- 
uted returns at some time during the current year. _ The population 
represented by the returns from counties and others is not included in 
this table.

Percentage Table of Part I Offenses. 

The per cent of each offense class to the whole for 1931 is shown by 
months in the following table. These figures, however, are not in- 
tended to indicate crime trends for the particular period but merely 
reflect the per cent of each class of the designated crimes to the whole 
group for the various months. The figures are based on the total 
number of offenses reported by all contributing cities, exclusive of 
obviously defective and incomplete returns.

Instructions for Reporting Robbery, Burglary, and Larceny— Theft. 

The attention of contributors is invited to the fact that according to 
the Uniform Classification of Offenses the wrongful taking of property 
or the attempt at such a taking may, as indicated on the monthly 
return A, fall into one of three classes, namely, robbery, burglary — 
breaking or entering, or larceny — theft. In reporting such offenses 
three fundamental principles should be borne in mind : 

1. The distinction between the offenses of robbery, burglary — 
breaking or entering and larceny — theft. 

2. No single offense should be reported twice as both a robbery and 
a larceny — theft, or both a burglary — breaking or entering and a lar- 
ceny — theft. 

3. The division of offenses of larceny — theft into those involving 
property valued at $50 and over and property valued at less than $50 . 



The manual, Uniform Crime Reporting, in sections 209 to 210 and 
213 to 222, inclusive, contains a thorough and complete discussion of 
the rules relating to the reporting of these three offenses. The defini- 
tions, according to the Uniform Classification of Offenses, may be 
briefly stated as follows: 

A. Robbery is the taking or attempted taking of property from the 
person or presence of another through the use of threat or force. 

B. Burglary — breaking or entering — is the breaking or entering any 
building or the attempt to do so with the intent to commit a felony or 
any larceny therein. 

C. Larceny — theft is the felonious stealing or taking, other than 
by force from the person, or the attempt to do so, the personal prop- 
erty of another with the intent to deprive him of his ownership. 

It should be observed, therefore, that the taking of another's prop- 
erty under circumstances coming within the above definitions will fall 
into one of these three classes, and accordingly no single offense should 
be reported under two difterent groups. Likewise it should be noted 
that larceny — thefts should be reported according to the amount of 
money or property stolen, the determining factor being whether it be 
over or under $50 in value.

UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director, Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice 

Washington, D. C. 

Volume 2 October, 1931 Number 10 

Contents of the October Bulletin. 

The number of crimes known to contributing police departments as 
submitted by them to the Bureau of Investigation for the month of 
October is set forth in the regular tables published in the current 
bulletin. Table I contains the number of offenses as reported by 
urban police departments, and Table I-A those furnished by counties'^ 
possessions, and others. Reports for months previous to October 
received since the September issue of the bulletin, and revised returns, 
which are those already published but in which some adjustments have 
been made, are contained in Tables II, II-A, and II-B. Other tables 
in the bulletin show the extent of the population area covered b}^ the 
the returns, the number of current and supplementary returns re- 
ceived during the j^ear, the average daily number of offenses, and the 
per cent of each offense class to the total number reported. 

In addition there is included a table reflecting the number of police 
department employees as indicated by returns received for the first 
nine months of 1931 and the number of such employees per 1,000 
persons for reporting cities of 50,000 or more in population. 

The Department of Justice does not vouch for the accuracy of the 
reports sent in by chiefs of police in different cities. They are given 
out as current information, which possibly may throw some light on 
problems of crime and criminal law enforcement. 

The term "Offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I Classes of the Uniform Classification 
occuring within the police jurisdiction, whether they become known 
to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of prose- 
cuting or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to the 
following group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by experience 
to be those most generally and completely reported to the police: 
Felonious homicide, mcluding (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, 
and (b) manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated 
assault; burglary — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, including 
(a) thefts of $50 and over and (b) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. 
The figures contained herein include also the number of attempted 
crimes of the designated classes. Attempted murders, however, are 

(1) 



reported as aggravated assiilts. In other words, an attempted bur- 
glary or robbery, for example, is reported in the monthly bulletin in 
the same manner as if the crime had been completed. 

"Offenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attempts, which are reported by the police depart- 
ments of contributing cities, and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 
Population table. 

The number of cities which at any time during the year 1931 
have contributed returns of offenses known to the police to the Bureau 
of Investigation reached 1,437 in October. The population repre- 
sented by those cities is 50,407,853. This figure, of course, excludes 
the population represented by returns received from county and other 
jurisdictions. Returns were also received from a number of counties 
in the various States, State police in several jurisdictions, the third divi- 
sion of Alaska, Canal Zone, and Porto Rico. Supplementary returns 
were forwarded from various other possessions. In the following table 
are shown the number and per cent of the cities and the number and 
per cent of the population of those cities of more than 10,000 inhabi- 
tants from which returns have been received for any one month of 
1931. In addition to those listed in the table there are 687 cities of 
the smaller population groups and rural townships representing an 
aggregate total population for both groups of 3,943,347, which also 
contributed returns at some time during the current year.

Percentage Table of Part I Offenses. 

The per cent of each offense class to the whole for 1931 is shown by 
months in the following table. These figures, however, are not in- 
tended to indicate crime trends for the particular period, but merely 
reflect the per cent of each class of the designated crimes to the whole 
group for the various months. The figures are based on the total 
number of offenses reported by all contributing cities, exclusive of 
obviously defective and incomplete returns.

Annual Returns. 

The attention of contributors is invited to the fact that the system 
of uniform crime reporting, as adopted by the Bureau of Investiga- 
tion, provides for the preparation of annual reports which are calcu- 
lated to show the total number of offenses of the designated classes 
for the year, the number of those offenses which have been cleared 
by arrest, together with the number of persons charged for those 
offenses. On or about the 1st of January the necessary forms, wdiich 
are designated Return B and Return C, will be forwarded to all 
interested police departments. Officials desiring information concern- 
ing the preparation of the annual reports should communicate imme- 
diately with the Bureau of Investigation.

Tabulation of Police Department Employees. 

There is presented in the table which follows a tabulation showing 
the number of police department employees, including civilians, for 
cities contributing crime statistical data to the Bureau of Investiga- 
tion. 

For comparative purposes the cities are herewith classified into three 
population groups; namely, cities over 250,000, those between 100,000 
and 250,000, and those between 50,000 and 100,000. The population 
data was obtained from the revised 1930 census. The number of 
police-department employees shown in the table is taken from the 
monthly Return A. It is an average for the months of January to 
September, 1931, inclusive. In some instances cities are included 
which have not provided the data for each month during the above 
period, and in such cases the average number is taken for those 
months in which the figures are available. Police departments from 
which it was impossible to obtain the data for a period of more than 
three months, however, are excluded. Data furnished by cities reg- 
ularly which was obviously inaccurate or incomplete has been dis- 
regarded. 



41 

In an earlv issue of the Bulletin the same data for cities between 
10,000 and 50,000 will be presented.

UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director, Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice 

Washington, D. C. 

Volume 2 November, 1931 Number 11 



Contents of the November Bulletin. 

The extent of criine, as reflected by the reports from poHce depart- 
ments of cities and counties cooperating with the Bureau of Investi- 
gation in gathering crime statistics, is indicated, for jurisdictions 
reporting, in the regular tables published in the current bulletin. 

The number of offenses reported by urban police departments is set 
forth in Table I, while Table I-A contains the number of crimes 
reported by counties, United States possessions, and others. Revised 
reports, which are those previously published but in which some 
adjustments have been made, and reports for months previous to 
November, received since the October issue of the bulletin, are con- 
tained in Tables II, II-A, and II-B. 

The remaining tables of the bulletin show the extent of the popu- 
lation area covered by the statistics in the above tables, the total 
number of current and supplementary reports that have been received 
from police departments during the year, the average number of crimes 
per day, and the per cent of each offense class to the total number 
reported. 

In publishing the reports sent in by chiefs of police in different 
cities, the Department of Justice does not vouch for their accuracy. 
They are given out as current information which possibly may throw 
some light on problems of crime and criminal law enforcement. 

The term "Offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I Classes of the Uniform Classifi- 
cation occurring wdthin the police jurisdiction, whether they become 
known to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of 
prosecuting or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to 
the following group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by expe- 
rience to be those most generally and completely reported to the police : 
Felonious homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent manslaughter, 
and (6) manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; aggravated 
assault; burglaiy — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, including 
(a) thefts of $50 and over and (6) thefts of under $50; and auto theft. 
The figures contained herein include a] so the number of attempted 
crimes of the designated classes. Attempted murders, however, are 
reported as aggravated assaults. In other words, an attempted 
burglary or robbery, for example, is reported in the monthly bulletin 
in the same manner as if the crime had been completed. 

(1) 



"Offenses known to the police" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attemjjts, which are reported by the police depart- 
ments of contributing cities, and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 
Population Table. 

The number of cities which at any time during the year 1931 have 
contributed returns of offenses known to the police to the Bureau of 
Investigation reached 1,485 in November. These cities represent a 
population of 50,891,147. This figure, of course, excludes the popula- 
tion represented by returns received from county and other juris- 
dictions. Returns were also received from a number of counties in 
the various States, State police in several jurisdictions, the third and 
fourth divisions of Alaska, Canal Zone, and Porto Rico. Supple- 
mentary returns were forwarded from various other possessions. In 
the following table are shown the number and per cent of the cities 
and the number and per cent of the population of those cities of more 
than 10,000 inhabitants from which returns have been received for 
any one month of 1931. In addition to those listed in the table there 
are 725 cities of the smaller population groups and rural town- 
ships representing an aggregate total population for both groups of 
4,185,034, which also contributed returns at some time during the 
current year.

The above table does not include 725 cities and rural townships, aggrecating a total population of 
4,185,034. The cities included in this figure are those of less than 10,000 population filing returns, whereas 
the rural townships are of varying population groups. 

Large Increase in Number of Reports Received for November. 

The number of reports received for the month of November 
showed an increase of 66 over the number of returns received in any 
previous month. Forty-eight of these reports were from cities which 
previously had never contributed crime statistics to the Bureau of 
Investigation making a total of 1,333 cities from which current returns 
were received for that month. In the following table there is set 
forth a comparison by States of the total number of returns received 
for the months of the current year. Supplementary returns are ex- 
cluded from this tabulation.

from the various States, is set forth in the following table. As dis- 
tinguished from current returns, supplementary returns are those 
which have been received since the last issue of the bulletin. 

In order to make available complete statistics covering the entire 
reporting area for the whole year, it is requested that police depart- 
ments which have heretofore failed to do so, forward, if possible, the 
data for the months previous to November.

Average Daily Offenses. 

The number of cities which have contributed returns for any two 
successive months hkewise showed a substantial increase for the 
months of October and November. The following table shows the 
daily average of crimes of the designated classes occurring in a group 
of 1,262 cities which submitted complete and properly classified re- 
turns for the months of October and November. This group rep- 
resents an increase of 35 over the similar group for the months of 
September and October.

Annual Return Forms. 

During the first week in January forms will be distributed for the 
purpose of obtaining statistics on the number of offenses reported to 
the pohce and the number of persons charged, on an annual basis 
for the year 1931. These forms are designated B and C, and instruc- 
tions will be given for tabulating the data requested. The informa- 
tion should be mailed to the Bureau of Investigation on or before the 
first of February, 1932, if possible. 

The data in Return B is confined to the Part I Classes which 
consist of major offenses most generally reported to the police. 
Return C, however, includes, in addition to the Part I Classes, the 
Part II Classes of the Uniform Classification of Oft'enses in which are 
included misdemeanors and some felonies which are generally not 
quite as prevalent as those in the Part I Classes.

UNIFORM CRIME REPORTS 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director, Bureau of Investigation 

United States Department of Justice 

Washington, D. C. 

Volume 2 December, 1931 Number 12 



Special Announcement. 

At the suggestion of Dr. L. C. Marshall, of the Instituteof Lawof The 
Johns Hopkins University, a conference was held December 28 in the 
offices of the United States Bureau of Investigation for the purpose of 
considering the possibility of securing a uniform classification of crimes 
for use in penal, judicial, and police statistics. At the present time the 
United States Bureau of Investigation of the Department of Justice 
is developing a system of crime statistics based on offenses known to 
the police, while the Bureau of the Census in the Department of 
Commerce has for years compiled criminal statistics on a national 
scale concerning inmates of State and Federal institutions. The 
classifications used by the two bureaus, although not exactly similar, 
have substantially the same group headings. The purpose of the 
conference was to determine whether some action might be taken with 
a view to developing a classification common to both fields of statistics 
which at the same time could be utilized in compiling judicial statistics. 
The following were in attendance in addition to representatives of the 
United States Bureau of Investigation: L. C. Marshall; Leonard V. 
Harrison; Thorsten Sellin, representing the Bureau of the Census; 
Bennet Mead; William P. Rutledge; Lawrence B. Dunham; W. C. 
Jamison; Miss Harriet Cheney; A. H. MacCormick; E. H. Sutherland; 
Bruce Smith; and Charles E. Gehlke. 

It was agreed hj the conference that it would be highly desirable 
to have a uniform offense classification which may be utilized in 
police, judicial, and penal statistics although there are many diffi- 
culties to be encountered in providing such a classification. The 
conference felt, nevertheless, that to obtain a comparable offense 
classification some progressive action should be taken as soon as 
possible, and accordingly a committee was appointed to consider the 
details of the problem and to submit its findings to the conference at a 
later date. This committee is composed of Dr. L. C. Marshall, of the 
Institute of Law of The Johns Hopkins University; Mr. Bruce Smith, 
of the Institute of Public Administration; Dr. Thorsten Sellin, of the 
Bureau of Social Hygiene, representing the Bureau of the Census; 
and Mr. James J. Waters, of the United States Bureau of Investigation.

Contents of the December Bulletin. 

This issue of the bulletin contains the usual tables of offenses 
known to the police as tabulated from the reports furnished the 
United States Bureau of Investigation by contributing police officers. 
These consist of Table I, or the number of offenses reported by 
urban police departments, Table I-A, the number of crimes reported 
by counties, United States possessions, and others, Tables II and 
II-A, which include the supplementary returns from urban police 
departments, counties and others, and Table II-B, in which will 
be found returns previously published which are revised in the 
current issue. In addition thereto a tabulation is included showing 
the total number of offenses for the calendar year of 1931 as reported 
by cities having a population of 100,000 or more from which reports 
were received for the entire 12 months of that year. The bulletin 
also contains a tabulation showing the number of police department 
employees in cities of two population groups, namely, those of 10,000 
to 25,000 and those of 25,000 to 50,000. 

The remaining tables of the bulletin show the extent of the popu- 
lation area covered by the statistics in the above tables, the total 
number of current and supplementary reports that have been received 
from police departments during the year, the average daily number of 
offenses for cities which have submitted returns for both November 
and December, and the per cent of each offense class to the total 
number reported. 

In publishing the reports sent in by chiefs of police in different 
cities, the Department of Justice does not vouch for their accuracy. 
They are given out as current information which possibly may 
throw some light on problems of crime and criminal law enforcement. 

The term "Offenses known to the police" is designed to include 
those crimes designated as Part I Classes of the Uniform Classifica- 
tion occurring within the police jurisdiction, whether they become 
known to the police through reports of police officers, of citizens, of 
prosecuting or court officials, or otherwise. They are confined to 
the following group of seven classes of grave offenses, shown by 
experience to be those most generally and completely reported to 
the police: Felonious homicide, including (a) murder, nonnegligent 
manslaughter, and (6) manslaughter by negligence; rape; robbery; 
aggravated assault; burglary — breaking or entering; larceny — theft, 
including (a) thefts of $50 and over and (b) thefts of under $50; 
and auto theft. The figures contained herein include also the number 
of attempted crimes of the designated classes. Attempted mur- 
ders, however, are reported as aggravated assaults. In other words, 
an attempted burglary or robbery, for example, is reported in the 
monthly bulletin in the same manner as if the crime had been 
completed. 

"Offenses known to the poHce" include, therefore, all of the above 
offenses, including attempts, which are reported by the police depart- 
ments of contributing cities, and not merely arrests or cleared cases. 
Population Table. 

The number of cities which at any time during the year 1931 have 
contributed returns of offenses loiown to the police to the Bureau of 
Investigation reached 1,511 in December. These cities represent a 
population of 51,145,734. This figure, of course, excludes the popu- 



lation represented by returns received from county and other juris- 
dictions. Returns were also received from a number of counties in 
the various States, State police in several jurisdictions, the third 
division of Alaska, Canal Zone, and Porto Rico. Supplementary 
returns were forwarded from various other possessions. In the follow- 
ing table are shown the number and per cent of the cities and the 
number and per cent of the population of those cities of more than 
10,000 inhabitants from which returns have been received for any 
one month of 1931. In addition to those listed in the table there are 
741 cities of the smaller population groups and rural townships repre- 
senting an aggregate total population for both groups of 4,262,409, 
which also contributed returns at some time during the current year.

townships are of varying population groups. 

Steady Expansion in Reporting Area Continues. 

It will be noted from the chart which follows that there was a 
steady growth in the extension of the reporting area during 1931. 
In January of that year there were approximately 1,050 cities, rep- 
resenting a population of more than 45,000,000 people, which sub- 
mitted returns. At the end of the year, however, this number had 
increased to 1,511 cities, representing a total population in excess 
of 51,000,000, from w^hich returns were received at any time during 
1931. County and other jurisdictions submitting reports are, of 
course, excluded from the above compilation.

Continued Increase in Number of Reports Received. 

The number of reports received by the Bureau of Investigation 
for the month of December from urban police departments was 1,352, 
an increase of 19 over the total number received at the time of going 
to press for the November Bulletin. Twenty-six of these reports 
were from cities which had not previously contributed crime statis- 
tics to the U. S. Bureau of Investigation. In the following table 
there is set forth a comparison by States of the total number of 
returns received currently by months during 1931. Supplementary 
returns are excluded from this tabulation.

Total Published Returns. 

A comparison of the total number of returns, including supple- 
mentaries, which have been received monthly during 1931 from the 
various States, is set forth in the following table. As distinguished 
from current returns, supplementary returns are those which have 
been received for months previous to December since the last issue of 
the bulletin. 



In order to make available complete statistics covering the entire 
reporting area for the whole year, it is requested that police depart- 
ments which have heretofore failed to do so, forward, if possible, the 
data for the months previous to December.

Percentage Table of Part I Offenses. 

The per cent of each offense class to the whole for 1931 is shown by 
months in the following table. These figures, however, are not in- 
tended to indicate crime trends for the particular period but merely 
reflect the per cent of each class of the designated crimes to the whole 
group for the various months. The figures are based on the total 
number of offenses reported by all contributing cities, exclusive of 
obviously defective and incomplete returns.

essary forms for supplying information concerning the number of 
offenses reported to the police and the number of persons charged 
during the calendar year of 1931. These forms are designated Return 
B and Return C. Return B provides for recording the total number 
of offenses known, the number of those which are unfounded, those 
cleared by arrest, and those not cleared by arrest for 1931. In addi- 
tion thereto the number of offenses which were reported not cleared in 
previous years, but which were cleared in 1931, should be reported. An 
offense is cleared by arrest when one or more persons are charged and 
prosecuted for it, whether following an arrest, court summons, or 
police notice. 

On Return C should be recorded the number of persons released by 
the police; that is, those persons who are taken into custody but are 
later released, there being no formal charge placed against them, and 
the number of persons charged by the police. The term "persons 
charged," according to the Uniform Classification of Offenses, includes 
all persons within the police jurisdiction against whom criminal 
charges are brought. These charges may be made after arrest, sum- 
mons, or notice. It should be noted that both the Part I and the 
Part II Classes of the Uniform Classification of Offenses are used in 
Return C. 

Tabulation of Police Department Employees. 

In the table which follows there is completed the tabulation showing 
the number of police department employees, including civilians, of 
cities contributing crime statistical data to the United States Bureau 
of Investigation. The first section of this table included three popula- 
tion groups, namely: Cities over 250,000, those between 100,000 and 
250,000, and those between 50,000 and 100,000. This tabulation 



was published in the October bulletin. The concluding section, 
published in the current bulletin, includes the two population groups 
of cities between 25,000 and 50,000 and those between 10,000 and 
25,000. 

There is also included a supplement to the figures for the first three 
population groups which includes tw^o cities that did not have complete 
data at the time of the previous publication. 

As was indicated previously, the sources of the data are as follows : 
Population figures were obtained from the revised 1930 census. The 
number of police department employees shown in the table is taken 
from the monthly Return A and is an average for the months from 
January to September, 1931, inclusive. Cities from which it was 
impossible to obtain the data for a period of more than three months 
are excluded. Data furnished by cities regularly which appeared 
obviously inaccurate or doubtful has been disregarded. 

Table A-1 is a summar}^ indicating the average number of police- 
men per 1,000 population for each of the five population groups 
covered b}- the completed tabulation.

Total Offenses Reported for 1931— Cities over 100,000. 

The following table is a tabulation of the returns submitted for the 
calender year of 1931 by cities having a population of 100,000 or 
more. Cities not contributing for the entire 12 months of 1931 are 
excluded. The data, it is believed, are of current interest and of 
value when reasonable caution is exercised in interpreting the figures 
presented.
