Preface 

The overall crime problem and the performance of criminal justice systems 
are subjects of deep concern. Kecently, there have been many studies looking 
toward solutions to these problems such as the deliberations of the President's 
Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice, as well as 
State and Federal crime legislation, which have generated many plans, theories, 
and action programs. One vital need remains clearly apparent; namely, mean- 
ingful information for sound decision-making. 

Criminal statistics are one essential form of information for management 
purposes. Law enforcement must know where it has been, before it can reason- 
ably decide where it is going. Statistics provide necessary data to identify crime 
problems and to evaluate action programs. Historically, Uniform Crime Reports 
have been based on the premise that the information collected on the national 
level is a limited layer of data and only a part of that which is required locally 
for knowledgeable administration. In the last few years a number of states have 
implemented a central collection system for gathering criminal statistics. This is 
encouraging, for it is the first step in any state where such information is not 
available. Data should be collected from all agencies in the administration of 
criminal justice, not just the police. Successful planning and direction of local 
crime control forces are not possible without valid information as to weaknesses 
and strengths. These thoughts are not new; they have been reiterated time and 
time again. A rising victim rate and the spiralUng costs of crime demand an 
immediate re-examination or implementation of such programs by each state. 

Computerized information systems are being developed at a rapid pace 
throughout law enforcement. The National Crime Information Center, insti- 
tuted by the FBI in cooperation with local and state law enforcement agencies, 
began in January, 1967. This is a computerized index of documented operational 
information on crime and criminals, national in scope, and provides the police 
officer on the street immediate access to essential information. Criminal mobil- 
ity necessitates the centralization of operational information and its instant 
retrieval. While operational needs are now being serv^ed by the National 
Crime Information Center and its companion state and local systems, manage- 
ment data should not be ignored. 

Perhaps less dramatic than operational data bvit more valuable is the 
centralized collection of management information at the state level. Computer- 
ized systems provide the capability to efficiently process these data for effective 
use. Management and operational data are vital parts of a total information 
system. Today's technology should be exploited to its fullest degree in meeting 
the issues presently facing law enforcement. The total result will be more 
efficient management and more effective operations.

Crime Factors 

Uniform Crime Reports give a nationwide view of crime based on police 
statistics made possible by the voluntary cooperation of local law enforcement 
agencies. Since the factors which cause crime are many and vary from place to 
place, readers are cautioned against drawing conclusions from direct com- 
parisons of crime figures between individual communities without first con- 
sidering the factors involved. The national material summarized in this 
publication should be used, however, as a starting point to determine deviations 
of individual cities from the national averages. 

Crime is a social problem and the concern of the entire community. The 
law enforcement effort is Umited to factors within its control. Some of the 
conditions which will affect the amount and type of crime that occurs from 
place to place are briefly outlined below : 

Density and size of the comiiiimity population and the metropolitan area 
of which it is a part. 

Composition of the population with reference particularly to age, sex and 
race. 

Economic status and mores of the population. 

Relative stabihty of population, mcluding commuters, seasonal, and other 
transient types. 

Climate, including seasonal weather conditions. 

Educational, recreational, and reUgious characteristics. 

Effective strength of the poUce force. 

Standards governing appointments to the police force. 

Policies of the prosecuting officials and the courts. 

Attitude of the public toward law enforcement problems. 

The administrative and investigative eflSciency of the local law enforce- 
ment agency, including the degree of adherence to crime reporting 
standards.

Summary 

(This section is for the reader interested in the general crime picture. Technical data, of interest primarily 
to police, social scientists, and other students, are presented in the following sections. If you wish assistance 
in the interpretation of any information in this publication, please communicate with the Director, Federal 
Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Department of Justice, Washington, D.C., 20535) 



Criim Capsule 

Almost 'SI4 million serious crimes reported dur- 
ing 1966; an 11 percent rise over 1965. 



Fifty-seven law enforcement officers murdered 
by felons in 1966. Firearms used as murder 
weapons in 96 percent of police killings since 1960. 



Risk of becoming a victim of serious crime 
increased 10 percent in 1966 with almost 2 victims 
per each 100 inhabitants. 



Careers in Crime: Study disclosed 55 percent of 
offenders released to the street in 1963 rearrested 
within two and one-half years. 



Firearms used to commit more than 6,500 
murders, and 43,500 aggravated assaults in 1966. 



Fifty-seven percent of the offenders released on 
parole were rearrested within 2li years. 



Daytime burglaries of residences rose 140 
percent in 1966 over 1960. 



Sixty-seven percent of prisoners released early in 
1963 after earning "good time" were rearrested. 



Property worth more than $1.2 billion lost as a 
result of 153,400 robberies, 1,370,000 burglaries, 
2,790,000 larcenies, and 557,000 auto thefts. 
Police recoveries, however, reduced this loss by 

55 percent.

1965 up 28 percent influenced primarily by 
marijuana arrests in Western States. 



Mobility study reveals over 60 percent of the 
repeaters charged with robbery, burglary, auto 
theft, sex offenses and forgery were rearrested in 
two or more states during their criminal careers.

CRIME INDEX TOTALS 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program em- 
ploys seven crime classifications to establish an 
index to measure the trend and distribution of 
crime in the United States. These crimes — murder, 
forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, bur- 
glary, larceny $50 and over in value, and auto 
theft — are counted by law enforcement agencies 
as the crimes become known to them. These 
crimes were selected for use in the Crime Index 
because, as a group, they represent the most 
common law enforcement problem. They are all 
serious crimes, either by their very nature or due 
to the volume in which they occur. Basically, they 
can be categorized as violent crimes, such as 
murder, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated 
assault, or as crimes against property, such as 
burglary, larceny $50 and over in value, and 
auto theft. 

It is believed desirable to point out that there 
is no way of determining the total number of 
crimes which are committed. Many criminal acts 
occur which are not reported to official sources. 
In light of this fact, the best source for obtaining 
a count of crime is the next logical universe, 
namely, crimes which come to police attention. 
The crimes used in the Crime Index are those 
considered to be most consistently reported to 
poHce and the computations of crime trends and 
crime rates are prepared using this universe — 
offenses kno\vn to police. 

In calendar year 1966 more than three miUion 
of these serious crimes were reported to law en- 
forcement agencies, an 11 percent national in- 
crease over 1965. The violent crimes as a group 
make up 13 percent of the Crime Index total and 
rose 11 percent, with murder up 11 percent, 
forcible rape 10 percent, robbery 14 percent, and 
aggravated assault 9 percent. Each of the property 
crimes recorded an increase, thereby contributing 
to the 11 percent rise in this group of offenses 
which represents 87 percent of the Crime Index 
total. Burglary was up 10 percent, larceny $50 
and over in value and auto theft each registered a 
13 percent upward trend. Since 1960, the violent 
crimes have increased 49 percent in volume, 
property crimes 64 percent, and the combined 
total 62 percent. 

The suburban areas continued to show the 
sharpest upswing in the volume of crime with a 
13 percent rise. The larger cities having popula- 
tions in excess of 250,000 were close behind vnth a 



10 percent rise in volume and the rural areas were 
also up 10 percent. Among city groups, those 
places with more than 100,000 inhabitants ex- 
perienced a 10 percent crime increase and within 
this group cities having over one miUion in- 
habitants recorded an 8 percent increase. Although 
the trend of crime is sharper in suburban areas, a 
much higher volume of crime is reported by the 
large cities. 

Each individual crime classification had m- 
creases in each geographic region ^vith the volume 
of crime in the Southern States in 1966 up 15 
percent, the North Central States 12 percent, the 
Western States 10 percent, and the Northeastern 
States 8 percent. 

Estimated 1966 crime figures for the United 
States are set forth in the following table. As 
explained on page 54 of this publication, the 
trends shown in this table are based on the actual 
reporting experience of comparable places.

CRIME AND POPULATION 

Crime rates relate the incidence of crime to 
population. From a more reaHstic point of view, a 
crime rate should be considered as a count of 
victims. The discussion that follows wdll demon- 
strate that the risk of becoming a victim of crime 
in this country is increasing and that population 
growth cannot alone account for the crime 
increases. 

In 1966, according to figures released by the 
United States Bureau of the Census, total United 
States population rose 1.1 percent. The national 
Crime Index rate, however, rose from 1,502 
ofi"enses per 100,000 population in 1965, to 1,656 
in 1966, a 10 percent increase in the crime rate. 
The rise in the national crime rate since 1960, or 
the risk of being a victim of one of these crimes, 
has risen 48 percent. Many factors influence the 
nature and extent of crime in a particular com- 



munity. A number of these factors are shown on 
page vi of this publication. A crime rate only 
takes into consideration the numerical factor of 
population and does not incorporate any of the 
other elements which contribute to the amount of 
crime in a given area. The statistical tables in this 
pubUcation disclose that the varying crime 
experiences, especially among large cities and 
suburban communities, are affected by a complex 
set of involved factors and are not solely hmited 
to numerical population differences. 

The overall crime rate increase in 1966 was 
attributable for the most part to the continuing 
upward chmb of crimes against property. The 
above table discloses each crime category recorded 
a rate increase ranging from 8 percent in aggra- 
vated assault to 13 percent in robbery. The num- 
ber of crimes per unit of population is, as expected, 
highest in the large metropohtan centers and in 
those areas where populations are growing the 
fastest. 

The accompanying charts illustrate the trend 
of crime in the United States for 1960 through 1966 
by shoAving percentage changes in volume and 
rate of crime together with the population increase. 
Separate charts provide similar information rela- 
tive to crimes of violence and crimes against 
property. Since 1960, the rate for crimes of violence 
as a group increased 37 percent and the property 
crime rate rose 50 percent. 

The reader's attention is directed to the tables 
containing arrest data which commence on page 
110 for additional information on the seven Crime 
Index offenses as well as arrest statistics for other 
criminal acts. 

MURDER AND NONNEGLIGENT 
MANSLAUGHTER 

This Crime Index offense includes all ndllful 
kilUng without due process and is scored on the 
basis of pohce investigation as opposed to any 
decision of a court, coroner, jury or other judicial 
body. Deaths caused by negHgence are not 
included in this category but are counted as 
manslaughter by neghgence. Attempts to kill 
or assaults to kill are scored as aggravated assaults 
and not as murder. The crime count in this 
offense classification also excludes suicides, acci- 
dental deaths and justifiable homicides. 

Volume 

In 1966 there were an estimated 10,920 murders 
in the United States, compared to 9,850 murders 



reported in 1965. This crime makes up about 
one-half of 1 percent of all Crime Index offenses, 
and less than 3 percent of the crimes of violence 
as a group. Almost one-half the murders reported 
in the United States, 49 percent, occurred in the 
Southern States. The North Central States 
constituted 22 percent, the Northeastern States 
16 percent, and the Western States 13 jjercent. 
Murder follows a seasonal pattern in that there 
are more murders committed during the summer 
months. December, 1966, however, was the peak 
month as it has been during the past ten years 
\vith the exception of 1963. 

Trenc/ 

Murder, in 1966, increased 11 percent in volume 
of offenses known to police over 1965. The number 
of murders has risen 21 percent since 1960. The 
foUowiug chart graphically shows the trend by 
quarter in 1966 compared to 1965 and records the 
fact that murder had a particularly sharp rise in 
the 1966 July-September quarter. 

Regional trends in murder disclose a wide dis- 
parity in 1966. The North Central States reported 
an 18 percent increase while murder in the South- 
ern States rose 13 percent, the Western States 5 
percent, and the Northeastern geographic region 
2 percent. The Nation's largest cities with 250,000 
or more inhabitants registered an 8 percent in- 
crease in 1966 over 1965. This percentage increase 
was almost doubled in the suburbs which had a 1 5 
percent rise. Murder was up 8 percent in the rural 
areas. 

Murder Rate 

In 1966 there were 5.6 murder victims per 
100,000 population, up from 5.1 in 1965, a 10 per- 
cent increase in the murder rate. Nationwide, 
cities with over 250,000 population had 9.9 murder 
victims per 100,000 popidation, up 7.6 percent 
over 1965. In the suburban areas the rate was 3.0, 
an increase of 11.1 percent over 1965, while the 
rural areas had a rate increase of 11.9 percent to 
4.7. 

The number of murder victims in proportion to 
population was highest in the Southern States 
where the rate 8.9, was 11.3 percent over 1965. 
In the Western States the rate of 4.3 was 2.4 per- 
cent above 1965 and the North Central States 
with a rate of 4.4 was up 18.9 percent. The rate 
of 3.6 in the Northeastern States was unchanged 
from 1965.

Nature of Murder 

Through the use of a supplemental report, de- 
tails are collected on murders to obtain data on 
age, sex and race of the victim, the weapon used 
to commit the offense, and the circumstances or 
motive which led to the crime. 

In 1966, murder victims were 3 to 1 male, the 
same ratio as in 1965. Forty-five of every 100 
victims were white and 54 were Negro. The re- 
maining 1 percent was distributed among Indian, 
Chinese, Japanese and other races. By age it is 
found that 6 of every 10 murder victims were be- 
tween 20 and 45 years of age with the largest 
number, 13 percent, falling in the 20-24 age group. 
Nationwide, the ratio of arrests for murder was 
more than 5 males to 1 female. 

Firearms continue to be the most common 
weapon used in murder, as illustrated in the 
accompanying chart, with 60 percent of the 1966 
criminal homicides resulting from the use of a 
firearm. This is an increase from 58 percent in 
1965. Cutting or stabbing weapons were used in 



23 percent of the murders, personal weapons in 9 
percent, and other weapons, including blunt ob- 
jects such as hammers and clubs, poison, arson, 
explosives, drowning, etc., in 8 percent. 

The fact that police are powerless to prevent 
a large number of these crimes is obvious from 
the circumstances or motives which disclosed 
that most murders are committed by relatives 
of the victim or persons acquainted with the 
victim. It also becomes obvious, based on these 
facts, that criminal homicide is, to a major extent, 
a social problem. Killings within the family made 
up 29 percent of aU murders in 1966. Over one- 
half of these involved spouse killing spouse and 
15 percent parents murdering their offspring. 

In this Program felony murder is defined as 
those killings resulting from robberies, sex motives, 
gangland slayings, and other felonious activities. 
In 1966, these known and suspected felonious 
assaults resulted in 22 percent of the total number 
of murders. The following table demonstrates by 
geographic region the percentage of murder, by 
type of circumstance, in 1966.

Almost 1 of every 5 criminal homicides in the 
Western States was spouse kilUng spouse, a con- 
siderably higher ratio than in other geographic 
regions. In addition, the Western States reported 
a higher percentage of parents killing their chil- 
dren than did the other areas of the country. The 
Southern States reported almost one-half the 
kilUngs were the result of arguments outside the 
family unit and not involving romantic triangle 



situations. It is known that the persons partici- 
pating in these arguments were most frequently 
acquainted prior to the fatal act. 

In situations involving husband and wife the 
wife was the victim in 56 percent of the cases and 
the husband in 44 percent. In these incidents 
almost 49 percent of the victims were white, 51 
percent were Negro, and less than 1 percent other 
races. 

In lovers' quarrels the female was the victim in 
57 percent of the incidents but when a third party 
entered the scene to complete a romantic triangle, 
a male was the victim 90 percent of the time. 

The victims of felony-type murders were 68 
percent white, 30 percent Negro and 2 percent 
other race or race not stated. 

Clearances 

Universally police are successful in clearing by 
arrest a higher percentage of the murder cases 
than any other Crime Index offense. In 1966, 89 
percent of the criminal homicides were solved, a 
sUght decrease from 1965 when over 90 percent of

these crimes were cleared. In 1966, 5.5 percent of 
the murder oflFenses cleared were by the arrests of 
persons under 18 years of age. 

Arrest Rates 

The national murder arrest rate or offender 
rate was 5.7 persons per 100,000 population. As 
would be expected the rate was highest in the 
cities over 250,000 population which had a rate of 
10.3. The suburban rate of 3.0 and the rural rate 
of 3.3 were both less than one-third the large city 
arrest rate. 

In the Southern States there were 9 murder 
offenders arrested per 100,000 population. In the 
North Central and Western States the murder 
offender rate was 5, while the Northeastern 
States were low with an arrest rate of 4 offenders 
for each 100,000 population. 

Persons Arrested 

Based on reports submitted by law enforcement 
agencies, more than 9 percent of all persons 
arrested for murder were under 18 years of age and 
37 percent were under 25. The involvement of the 
young age group under 18 years of age is indicated 
in the arrest trends for murder where a 14 percent 
increase occurred in 1966 over 1965. This is double 
the 7 percent increase in arrests for those 18 and 
over. Numerically, the 20-24 year age group had 
the heaviest involvement with almost 19 percent of 
the total arrests coming from within this group. 
Negroes made up 57 percent of the arrests for 
murder in 1966 and, as noted earUer, 54 percent of 
the victims of homicide were also Negroes. 

Persons Charged 

PoUce reports disclose that of aU persons 
arrested for having been involved in a murder, 68 
percent were formally charged by pohce. Of those 
charged, 7 percent were young persons whose cases 
were referred to juvenile court jurisdiction. Insofar 
as adults were concerned, of those charged ^v^th 
murder 50 percent were found guilty as charged, 
17 percent entered pleas or were convicted on a 
lesser charge, and 33 percent were released by 
acquittal or dismissal of the charges against them. 

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT 

Aggravated assault is defined as an unlawful 
attack by one person upon another for the purpose 
of inflicting severe bodily injury usually accom- 
panied by the use of a weapon or other means 
likely to produce death or great bodily harm. 



Attempts are included since it is not necessary 
that any injury result when a gun, knife, or other 
weapon is used which could and probably would 
result in serious personal injury if the crime was 
successfully completed. 

Volume 

In calendar year 1966, there was an estimated 
total of 231,800 aggravated assaults. Aggravated 
assaults increased by almost 20,000 offenses in 
1966 over 1965. This violent crime against the 
person made up over 7 percent of the Crime Index 
offenses in 1966 and comprised 55 percent of the 
crimes of violence. Regionally, the Southern States 
recorded 40 percent of the total count of these 
crimes followed by the North Central States 22 
percent, the Northeastern States 20 percent with 
the remaining 18 percent occurring in the Western 
States. July and August recorded the highs dm-ing 
1966 and these two months also proved high in the 
seasonally adjusted long-term trend. (See chart 
10.) The colder or winter months during 1966 
followed the pattern set for many years in pro- 
ducing the lowest number of offenses. 

Trend 

In 1966, aggravated assault increased 9 percent 
over 1965 and since 1960, has risen 53 percent. The 
quarter July through September, 1966, recorded 
the largest percentage gain of 13 percent closely 
followed by the second quarter of the year, April 
through June, up 12 percent. Cities 250,000 and 
above had an 8 percent increase in trend with the 
subm'ban areas up 15 percent and rural areas up 
4 percent. The Western States reported an upward 
trend of 13 percent while the Southern and North 
Central States had increases of 11 percent and 10 
percent respectively. The Northeastern States had 
an increase of 3 percent. 

Aggravated Assault Rate 

For each 100,000 persons in the United States 
during 1966, there were 118 victims of an aggra- 
vated assault. Big cities recorded a rate of 288 per 
100,000 while the suburban and rural areas rates 
were 73 and 61. Overall, the aggravated assault 
rate increased 8 percent over 1965 and since 1960 
the victim risk rate has risen 40 percent. All geo- 
graphic regions recorded increases in the victim 
risk rate diu-ing 1966. The Southern States were 
highest with a rate of 153 while the Western States 
recorded a victim risk rate of 127. The North- 
eastern and North Central States noted rates of

over 250,000 population witnessed an S percent rise 
in the rate while the suburban area was up 12 per- 
cent and the rural areas 5 percent. 

Nature of Aggravated Assault 

Most aggravated assaults occur within the family 
unit or among neighbors and acquaintances. The 
victim and offender relationship, as well as the very 
nature of the attack make this crime similar to 
murder. About 1 of each 5, or 19 percent of the 
serious assaults in 1966 were committed with the 
use of a firearm. A knife or other cutting instrument 
was used in 34 percent of the assaults, 22 percent 
were committed with blunt objects or other dan- 
gerous weapons, and 25 percent with personal 
weapons, such as hands, fists and feet. The collec- 
tion of crime counts in this offense category was 
broken down into the above subclassifications 
commencing in 1964, in order to further define the 
nature of these serious assaults. During the 3-year 
period, 1964-1966, assaults with a firearm were up 
36 percent, assaults with a knife or other cutting in- 
strument rose 4 percent, those where blunt objects

or other dangerous weapons were used increased 17 
percent and the crimes where personal weapons 
were employed witnessed an 11 percent rise. The 
table which follows demonstrates the regional ex- 
perience of aggravated assault in 1966, by type of 
weapon used.

Clearances 

Performance, as measured by solutions indicated 
American law enforcement agencies were successful 
in solving almost 72 of each 100 cases in 1966. This 
relatively high solution ratio follows that of the 



other crimes against the person. Due to the nature 
of these crimes, arrests are frequently made upon 
the response of patrol units. These types of patrol 
calls are hazardous to the officers. Since 1960, 71 
officers have lost their Uves in responding to dis- 
turbance type calls, which frequently involved 
family arguments. Cities in the 50,000 to 100,000 
category had the most success in solving this violent 
crime. Solution levels in the cities and suburbs 
ranged downward to 64 percent in the subiu-ban 
areas where the ratio of poUce to population is the 
lowest. While law enforcement agencies were able 
to maintain relatively high solution levels in 1966, 
nonetheless, the over-all percentage of clearances 
decreased by 2 percent when compared with 1965. 

Arrest Rates 

Nationally, there were about 71 persons per 
100,000 population arrested for aggravated assault 
in 1966. Cities over 250,000 population had the 
highest offender rate of approximately 125 persons 
per every 100,000. The offender rate ranged down- 
ward to the suburban and rural areas with rates of 
43 and 28 respectively. Regionally, the Southern 
States recorded the highest aggravated assault 
arrest rate, 92 per 100,000 population, followed by 
the Northeastern, Western and North Central 
States. 

Persons Arrested 

Arrests for aggravated assault increased 17 per- 
cent in 1966 over 1965. Arrests of persons under 18 
noted significant increases, up 26 percent nation- 
ally, led by city arrests up 27 percent, suburban 
arrests up 22 percent and rural arrests for this 
crime up 10 percent. 

As a group, persons over 21 years of age ac- 
counted for 72 percent of the arrests for aggravated 
assault in 1966 and persons under 21, 28 percent. 
Arrests for males outnumbered females by almost 7 
to 1, however, arrests for young females under 
18 rose 38 percent, 1966 over 1965. Almost one- 
half of all persons arrested for this offense in 1966 
were Negroes, however, as in the other crimes 
against the person, the victims also were primarily 
Negroes. 

Persons Charged 

Law enforcement agencies have difficulty in ob- 
taining convictions based on original charge in the 
aggravated assault category. The close relation- 
ship which exists between victims and assailants 
in this category accounts for the victim's frequent 



unwillingness to cooperate or testify for the prose- 
cution. Acquittals and dismissals, therefore, run 
high, more than 3 out of 10 cases. Although police 
charge 81 of every 100 persons arrested for aggra- 
vated assault, only 51 percent of the adults charged 
were convicted on this charge. Seventeen percent 
plead guilty or were convicted on a lesser charge. 
Referrals to juvenile court amounted to 17 percent 
of the persons charged. 

FORCIBLE RAPE 

Forcible rape, as defined under this Program, is 
the carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and 
against her will. Assaults to rape are also included, 
however, statutory rape without force is not 
counted. Crime counts in this offense category are 
broken down by actual rapes by force, and 
attempted rapes. 

Volume 

There was an estimated total of 25,330 forcible 
rapes in 1966. Numerically, the volume increased 
by 2,360 offenses over 1965. Percentagewise, 
forcible rape made up less than 1 percent of the 
Crime Index total in 1966. The greatest volume 
was recorded in the Southern States with 29 per- 
cent of the total volume. The North Central 
States recorded 27 percent followed by the Western 
and Northeastern States which reported 25 and 
19 percent respectively. 

A comparison of the month-to-month variations 
for forcible rape in 1966 with the long term 
seasonally adjusted trend followed the pattern set 
for many years. The period April through Sep- 
tember, 1966, recorded monthly totals 10 percent 
above the same period ua 1965. It is during these 
warmer spring and summer months that highs 
normally occur. The following chart demonstrates 
the month-to-month variations of forcible rape 
during 1966, as well as a comparison with the 
prior five-year experience. 

Trend 

Based on volume alone, forcible rape increased 
10 percent in 1966 over 1965. Since 1960 the 
number of these crimes has increased 50 percent. 
This crime is committed most often in the larger 
cities, nonetheless, the subiu-ban area in 1966 
registered an upward trend of 5 percent while the 
volume increased by 3 percent in the less popu- 
lated rural areas. Percentagewise, all cities over 
250,000 population registered an average gain of

9 percent while tha sharpest upward trend of 29 
percent was recorded in cities 100,000-250,000. 
Small cities under 10,000 population registered a 
9 percent decrease in the occurrence of these 
crimes. Geographically, an overall increase was 
noted in all regions with the Southern States up 
13 percent and the Western States up 12 percent 
followed by the North Central States with a 
9 percent increase and the Northeastern States 
with an 8 percent rise. 

Forcible Rape Rate 

In its true perspective, the crime rate is a 
victim risk rate. It imputes the risk an individual 
runs in being victimized as a result of a particular 
crime. In 1966, 25 out of every 100,000 women 
were known forcible rape victims. Since 1960 the 
forcible rape crime rate has increased 37 percent. 
In calendar year, 1966, alone, the forcible rape 
rate increased by 8 percent over 1965. The large 
core cities recorded a victim risk rate of 48 while 
the suburban area rate was 20 and the rviral area 
17. Regionally, females residing in the Western 
States were most often the victims of forcible rape 



FBI CHART 

in calendar year 1966. In these States, the forcible 
rape rate was 19 per 100,000. The North Central 
States recorded a rate per 100,000 population of 
13 in 1966 followed by the Southern and North- 
eastern States with rates of 12 and 10 respectively. 

Nafure of Offenses 

It is generally recognized by law enforcement 
administrators that of all the Crime Index offenses, 
forcible rape is probably the most under-reported 
crime, due primarily to fear and/or embarrassment 
on the part of many victims. In 1966, two-thirds 
of all offenses reported in this crime class were 
actual rapes by force while the remainder were 
attempts to rape. A violent crime against the 
person, this offense occurs out of reach of police 
patrols. Prior studies indicate that nearly 20 per- 
cent of all reported forcible rapes are determined 
by poUce investigation to be unfounded. The 
use of force is particularly difficult to determine, 
frequently because of the prior relationship be- 
tween victim and offender. Crime counts in this 
pubUcation, however, are limited to actual offenses 
established by police investigation. 



11 



Clearances 

In 1966, 62 percent of all forcible rapes were 
solved with arrest of the offender. This represents 
a decrease of 3 percent in solutions when compared 
to 1965. Although rape is primarily a young adult 
crime, 14 percent of these cases were solved which 
involved persons under the age of 18. 

Arrest Rates 

During 1966, about 17 of each 100,000 males 
were arrested for this crime. Again, the largest 
cities over 250,000 had the highest arrest rate of 
30 per 100,000; suburban and rural areas each 
recorded arrest rates less than half the rate re- 
corded in big cities. Arrest rates by region disclose 
the Western States had a rate of 20 per 100,000 
males, the Southern States 18, the Northeastern 
and North Central States 16. 

Persons Arrested 

Males in the 17-19 year age group constituted 
the greatest concentration of arrests for forcible 
rape in 1966. Arrests for this offense increased 9 
percent, with persons 18 and over contributing 



most heavily with an 11 percent increase 1966 
over 1965. Over 6 of every 10 arrests for forcible 
rape during the year were of persons under the 
age of 25. About 47 percent of the arrests were of 
Negroes, 51 percent of whites and all other races 
comprised the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

Of all persons arrested for forcible rape in 1966, 
78 percent were formally charged by poUce. Forty 
percent of the adults charged with forcible rape 
were found guilty of the substantive offense. An 
additional 19 percent of adults charged were con- 
victed of a lesser offense. Prosecutive problems 
accounted for acquittals and/or dismissals in 42 
percent of the cases. Juvenile referrals amounted 
to approximately 19 percent of the forcible rape 
charges in 1966. 

ROBBERY 

This crime involves the stealing or taking of 
anything of value from the person by use of force 
or threat of force. Assaults to rob and attempts 
are included. This is a violent crime and frequently

results in injury to the victim. For crime reporting 
purposes data on robbery is collected for armed 
robbery where any weapon is used, and strong-arm 
robbery where no weapon, other than personal 
weapons, is employed. The latter category includes 
crimes such as mugging, yoking, etc. 

Volume 

During calendar year 1966, there were 153,420 
robberies committed in the United States, a sub- 
stantial increase over the 134,680 estimated 
offenses recorded in this classification in 1965. 
These offenses, which make up almost 5 percent 
of the total Crime Index, are committed most 
frequently in the last two months of the year and 
in 1966 an unusually sharp upswing was noted in 
December. The low point is usually reached 
during the early summer months. 

Geographically, the heaviest volume of robbery 
occurred in the North Central States, which had 
34 percent of the total in 1966. The distribution in 
the other geographic regions showed the North- 
eastern States had 26 percent, the Southern 
States 22 percent and the Western States 18 
percent. 

There were an average of 420 robberies every 
day in 1966. 

Trend 

Robbery led all other Crime Index offenses in 
the percentage increase in volume in 1966 with a 
14 percent rise and since 1960, this violent crime 
has increased 46 percent in the United States. 
Cities with over 250,000 population were up 14 
percent as a group 1966 over 1965. The sharpest 
increase was noted in cities with 500,000 to one 
million population which, as a group, were up 22 
percent. The suburban areas recorded an 11 per- 
cent rise, whereas robberies in the rural areas were 
up 2 percent. 

There was a broad disparity in the robbery 
trend by geographic region. The Southern and 
North Central States displayed the greatest in- 
creases with 25 percent and 18 percent rises 
respectively. The Northeastern States, up 7 
percent, and the Western States, up 6 percent, 
each had about one-third the percentage increase 
in volume reported by the two first-mentioned 
regions. 

The chart preceeding will illustrate the substan- 
tial upsurge in robbery in the last two quarters of 
1966 when related to the percentage increase 
during the first half of the year. 



Robbery Rate 

The 1966 robbery rate was 13 percent higher 
than 1965 with 78 victims per 100,000 population 
and 34 percent above the 1960 rate. The highest 
robbery rates are in the largest cities, as shown by 
the group of cities mth over one million popula- 
tion where the rate was 324. The rates thereafter 
decrease steadily as the city groups grow smaller 
in population. Cities over 250,000 population 
nationally had 243 victims per 100,000 popula- 
tion. There were 31 robbery victims per 100,000 
population in the suburban areas, up 9 percent 
over the preceding year, and 10 victims in the 
rural sections of the country. On a geographic 
basis, this crime occiu-red most frequently in rela- 
tion to population in the North Central States 
where the rate was 95, 17 percent higher than 
1965. The Western States followed with a rate of 
86, which was a 5 percent increase, the North- 
eastern States 82, a 6 percent rise, and the South- 
ern States 56, a 23 percent increase. 

Nature of Robbery 

As a part of the monthly collection of statistical 
data, supplemental information is obtained from 
cities with populations of 25,000 or more as to 
robbery by type. In 1966 these figures disclosed 
that 54 percent of the robberies were committed 
on the street, up from 51 percent in 1965 and an 
increase of 16 percent in volume of this robbery 
type over the prior year. Robberies of chain 
stores, although making up only 3 percent of all 
crimes in this category, had the sharpest percent- 
age increase in volimae, up 22 percent. Bank rob- 
beries decreased slightly with 5 percent fewer 
crimes of this nature reported in 1966 than in 
1965. At the same time, however, the average bank 
robbery in 1966 resulted in a loss of $3,986 com- 
pared to $3,789 the preceding year. 

The long-term trends in robbery by type, as 
illustrated by the following charts, show bank 
robbery has had a sharp 7-year upward trend, an 
increase of 154 percent. During this same period 
gas or service station holdups have risen 80 per- 
cent, chain store robberies 75 percent, robberies 
in residences 42 percent, and holdups of other 
commercial or business establishments 19 percent. 

Armed perpetrators were responsible for com- 
mitting 58 percent of the 1966 offenses. The re- 
maining 42 percent were muggings, yokings, or 
other violent confrontations where personal weap- 
ons were used to subdue or overcome the victim.

Many victims of the yoker and the mugger, as 
well as of the armed robber, suffer serious personal 
injury as a result of the attack ; therefore, the full 
impact of these crimes on the victims cannot be 
measured solely in terms of doUar loss. 

The average value of the victim's loss in each 
robbery was $256 or a total loss of $39 million for 
1966. Very little of the loot taken in robberies is 
recovered by law enforcement agencies since the 
heavy proportion is money and jewelry which are 
disposed of easily and which are difficult, if not 
impossible, to identify. 

C/eoronccs 

Clearance data collected for all agencies showed 
police were successful, nationally, in solving 
slightly less than one-third of the robbery crimes 
by arrest of those responsible. In 1966, 32 percent 
of these crimes were cleared, a decrease from 38 
percent in 1965 and the sharpest percentage drop 
in clearances of any Crime Index offense. Approx- 
imately 4 of every 5 robberies, which were cleared 
by arrest, involve persons 18 years of age and over 
and the remaining 20 percent were solved by arrests 
of persons under 18 years of age. Twelve percent 
of the armed robberies and 32 percent of the 
strong-arm type were cleared by arrests of persons 
under 18 years of age. 

Arrest Rates 

In 1966, police arrests for robbery resulted in 
34 persons being arrested for this crime per 100,000 
population. The robbery offender rate in cities 
having 250,000 or more inhabitants was 77 per 
100,000 in 1966. The suburban rate was 5 times 
lower at 16 and the rural arrest rate was 7 arrests 
per 100,000 population. 

Across the Nation the regional robbery offender 
rates disclosed the Western States to be high with 
45, followed by the North Central States with 37, 
the Northeastern States with 31 and the Southern 
States with 26 arrests per 100,000 population.

Persons Arrested 













Nationally, arrests for robbery increased 5 per- 
cent in 1966 when related to 1965. The upward 



trend in arrests was led by cities where volume is 
heaviest. In the suburban areas, however, arrests 
for robbery declined by over 4 percent, while the 
robbery crime rate was rising, as noted earlier. 

Arrest data discloses that 71 percent of the 
persons arrested for this crime were under 25 years 
of age and, to go one step further, over half were 
under 21 years of age. Nationally, 31 percent of 
the persons arrested for robbery were under 18. 
This greater proportion of young age arrests com- 
pared to solutions is accounted for in part by the 
fact they act in groups such as in strong-arm 
robbery. Robbery arrests for this young age group 
recorded an increase of almost 10 percent in 1966 
when compared to 1965. In the subxu-ban areas, 
young persons made up 23 percent of the robbery 
arrests and in the rural areas 16 percent. About 5 
of every 100 persons arrested for robbery were 
females. However, in 1966, arrests of young 
women for this offense rose by over 7 percent when 
related to 1965. 

From the standpoint of race, 58 percent of those 
arrested were Negro, 41 percent were white and 
all other races made up the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

In 1966, police formally charged 71 percent of 
all persons arrested for robbery. Sixty-seven per- 
cent of the persons charged wth these crimes were 
adults and 33 percent were juveniles whose cases 
were referred to juvenile court jiu-isdiction. Of the 
adults charged, 51 percent were convicted for 
robbery, 18 percent were convicted on a charge 
less than robbery and 31 percent were acquitted 
or their cases were dismissed. 

BURGLARY 

Under this Program, burglary is defined as the 
unlawful entry of a structure to commit a felony 
or theft, even though no force was used to gain 
entrance, and attempts. Collection of crime counts 
in this category is broken down into three sub- 
classifications: forcible entry, imlawful entry 
where no force is used, and attempted forcible 
entry. 

Volume 

In 1966, there was an estimated total of 
1,370,300 bm-glaries. Volumewise, there was an 
increase of 124,000 offenses over 1965. In 1966 the 
large cities over 250,000 population accounted for 
39 percent of all burglaries. This offense makes up

42 percent of the Crime Index offenses and almost 
49 percent of the voluminous property crimes. The 
Southern States reported 28 percent of the total 
volume, the Western States 25 percent, the 
Northeastern States 24 percent and the North 
Central States 23 percent. 

Seasonal variations in burglary followed the 
long-term cychcal fluctuations %vith highs in those 
months with the longer periods of darkness. The 
last quarter of 1966 was the highest for the year 
with the peak month being reached in December. 

Trend 

Since 1960, burglary nationally has increased 
55 percent. In 1966, burglary rose by 10 percent 
over 1965. Big cities over 250,000 were up 8 per- 
cent and the rural areas showed a 10 percent 
increase. The suburban area was up 11 percent. 
The Southern States as a group registered the 
largest overall gain, up 14 percent followed by 
the Western and North Central States, up 9 
percent each, and the Northeastern States 8 
percent. 



FBI CHART 

Burglary Rate 

The long term rise in the burglary rate, 1960- 
1966, was 42 percent. A sharp rise occurred in 
1966, up 9 percent over 1965. Again the crime 
rate equates the number of offenses per 100,000 
population and this continuing upward trend 
indicates the increasing number of victims of 
burglary both residential and nonresidential. 
The Western States recorded the highest burglary 
rate in 1966 with 1,046, followed by the North- 
eastern States, 697, the Southern States 619, 
and the North Central States 585. Cities over 
250,000 popidation reported a rate of 1,233 per 
100,000 population while the suburban and 
rural areas showed rates of 600 and 335 each. 

Nature of Burglary 

This crime is one of stealth and opportunity 
committed by amateurs and professionals alike. 
In 1966, 77 percent of the burglaries involved 
forcible entry, while 16 percent were unlawfid 
entry without force and 7 percent were attempts. 
Residence burglary accounted for 49 percent

of the total while nonresidential amounted to 
51 percent in 1966. Daytime burglaries of resi- 
dences rose by 15 percent in 1966, and accounted 
for almost half of these offenses. Since 1960, 
there has been an increase of 140 percent in 
daytime residence burglaries. Unattended apart- 
ments and homes during daytime hours are 
easy prey for the burglar whose movements in 
new neighborhoods are no longer subject to 
challenge or suspicion. Daytime burglaries of 
nonresidences rose 24 percent in 1966 but ac- 
counted for less than 5 percent of the total. 

As a group, residential and nonresidential 
nighttime burglary represented 72 percent of 
the total volume. Suppression and detection are 
particularly difficult due to the tremendous volume 
of these offenses and the thinness of patrols. In 
1966, property owners suffered an economic loss 
of almost $340 million, with an average dollar 
loss of $248 per burglary. 

Clearances 

Solutions were accounted for in 1 out of every 
5 cases of burglary in 1966. This low clearance 
rate indicates the lack of a deterrent and little 
risk of detection. 

Burglary solutions dropped 11 percent in 1966. 
Adults were identified in 59 percent of all cases 
solved while young persons under 18 were identi- 
fied in 41 percent. Solution levels were fairly 
consistent in all population groups. Cities over 
250,000 as a group cleared up 22 percent, rural 
areas 24 percent and the suburban areas 20 
percent. It is in the suburban areas of the country, 
however, where manpower shortages are most 
acute and where the burglary rate is increasing the 
fastest. 

Arrest Rates 

Out of each 100,000 persons in the United States 
during 1966, nearly 145 persons were arrested 
for burglary. The offender rate of 198 per 100,000 
was greatest in the big cities; however, suburban 
areas recorded an offender rate of 119, while the 
rural arrest rate was 87 per 100,000 in 1966. 

Geographically, the Western States with an 
offender rate of 216 per 100,000 population far 
exceeded the rates in other regions. The Southern 
States had a rate of 152, the North Central 
States 133, and the Northeastern States 106. 



Persons Arrested 

In 1966, total arrests for burglary had a sUght 
rise of 1 percent. Arrests of persons under 18 
years of age contributed to this increase, up 5 
percent. Arrests of persons 18 years and over 
meanwhile dechned by 3 percent. Of all the Crime 
Index offenses, arrests for bm-glary showed the 
smallest percentage rise in 1966. Young females 
under 18 recorded the largest percentage rise, 
up 15 percent. Bm-glary arrests rose by 2 per- 
cent in the city and suburban areas, but dropped 
4 percent in rural areas in 1966. 

Nationally, persons under 25 accounted for 81 
percent of all arrests for burglary in 1966. Of the 
total, young persons under 18 accounted for over 
one-half of aU poUce arrests for this crime. Of all 
arrests for this offense, females were involved in 
4 of every 100. Arrests of whites outnumbered 
Negroes by more than 2 to 1 . 

Persons Charged 

Nationally, in 1966, poUce placed formal charges 
against almost 8 of every 10 persons they arrested 
for burglary. Well over one-half, 58 percent, of the 
persons charged were juveniles who were referred 
to juvenile court jurisdiction. Of the adults 
charged for this crime, 60 percent were found 
guilty as charged, 16 percent were convicted on a 
lesser charge, and 24 percent were freed through 
acquittal or dismissal of charges. 

LARCENY-THEFT 

Larceny-theft is the unlawful taking or stealing 
of property or articles of value mthout the use of 
force or violence or fraud. It includes crimes such 
as shophfting, pocket-picking, purse-snatching, 
thefts from autos, thefts of auto parts and acces- 
sories, bicycle thefts, etc. In the Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program this crime category does not 
include embezzlement, "con" games, forgery, and 
worthless checks. Auto theft, of course, is excluded 
from this category for crime reporting purposes 
inasmuch as it is a separate Crime Index offense. 

The Crime Index offense of larceny is hmited to 
those thefts where the value of the goods stolen is 
$50 or more. 

Volume 

Larceny is the second most voluminous Index 
crime, being exceeded only by burglary. In

1966 there were 894,600 offenses of larceny $50 
and over, up from 792,300 in 1965. This crime 
makes up 28 percent of the Crime Index total. 
From a seasonal standpoint, larceny conforms to 
a general pattern which remains relatively stable 
throughout the year. It has a tendency to reach a 
peak in August, and in 1966 this trend was main- 



FBI CHART 

tained. There was, in addition, a recurrence in 
1966 of a general upswing toward the end of the 
year similar to that in 1965 and a departure from 
the experience of prior years. 

Offenses of larceny-theft were distributed quite 
evenly throughout all geographic regions. The 
North Central States contributed 23 percent to the

total, the Western States 25 percent and the 
Northeastern and Southern States 26 percent each. 

Trend 

In 1966, the Index offense of larceny $50 and over 
recorded a 13 percent increase over 1965 and this 
crime has increased 77 percent in volume since 
1960. Substantial increases were noted in aU popu- 
lation groups with cities over 250,000 population, 
up 11 percent. Cities under 10,000 population had 
a particularly sharp rise of 20 percent in 1966. The 
suburban area continued to show an above average 
increase with a 15 percent rise and the rural areas 
registered an 11 percent upward trend. 

Geographically, larceny increased 10 percent in 
the Northeastern States and 12 percent in the 
Western States, 14 percent in the North Central 
States and 16 percent in the Southern States. 

Larceny Rate 

During 1966 the larceny crime rate rose to 457 
victims per 100,000 population, a sharp 12 percent 
jump over the rate in 1965 and a 62 percent rise 
over 1960. This rate rise was reflected in all popu- 



FBI CHART 

latioD groups and in aU geographic regions. In 
1966, the large core cities registered a victim risk 
rate in this offense of 769 per 100,000 population. 
The suburban larceny rate was 405, and the rural 
rate was 188. Viewed geographically, the Western 
States reported by far the highest larceny rate 
mth 690 offenses per 100,000 population which 
was 11 percent above 1965. The Northeastern 
States had a rate of 489, up 9 percent, the Southern 
States 380, up 14 percent, and the North Central 
States 374, an increase of 13 percent in the rate. 

Nature of Larceny-Theft 

The average value of property stolen in each 
larceny in 1966 was $90, up from $84 in 1965. 
This average value includes losses from the 
voluminous thefts under $50 in value, of which 
there were 1,896,000 in 1966. When average value 
is applied to the estimated crimes in this category, 
the dollar loss to victims is in excess of $251,000,- 
000. It is true that a portion of the goods stolen 
is recovered and returned to victims, but the 
relatively low percentage of these crimes cleared 
by arrest indicates these recoveries will not 



22 



materially reduce the overall victim loss. In addi- 
tion, of course, many offenses in this category, 
particularly where the value of the stolen goods is 
small, never come to police attention. 

The average value of goods and property 
reported stolen by pickpockets was $93, by purse- 
snatchers $49, by shoplifters $29, by thefts from 
autos $130, and by miscellaneous thefts from 
buildings $161. 

From one year to another, the distribution of 
larceny as to type of theft remains relatively 
constant. As in prior years, a major portion of 
these thefts, 39 percent, represented thefts of 
auto parts and accessories and other thefts from 
automobiles. Other major types of theft which 
contributed to the large number of these crimes 
were thefts from buildings and stolen bicycles, 17 
percent each. Miscellaneous types of larcenies, 
not falling into any of the specific categories for 
which statistics were collected made up 14 percent 
of the total. The remainder was distributed 
among pocket-picking, purse-snatching, shoplift- 
ing and thefts from coin-operated machines. 

For the first time this year, information is 
available as to distribution of larceny by type in 
small cities and rural areas. This distribution for 
these places, on the average, is significantly dif- 
ferent in the areas where it would be expected. 
For example, thefts from autos make up 13 percent 
of the total larceny in the small cities and counties, 
but 18 percent in the larger cities. Thefts of auto 
accessories and parts, on the other hand, are 
almost the same in all areas. Pocket-picking and 
purse-snatching do not, of course, occur as fre- 
quently in small cities and counties, but shop- 
lifting makes up about an equal share of the 
larcenies in small and large places. 

Clearances 

The nature of larceny, a crime of oppor- 
tunity, sneak thievery and petty unobserved 
thefts, makes it an extremely difficult one for law 
enforcement officers to solve. A lack of witnesses 
and the tremendous volume of these crimes work 
in the thief's favor. In 1966, almost 19 percent of 
the larceny offenses brought to poUce attention 
were cleared by arrest. The involvement of the 
young age group is demonstrated by the fact that 
45 percent of these crimes which were cleared in 
the Nation's cities were solved by arrests of 



persons under 18 years of age. JuvenUe clearance 
figures for suburban areas and rural areas showed 
no change from 1965, 46 percent and 30 percent 
respectively. 

The larceny clearance percentages were con- 
sistent in all population groups ranging from 16 
percent in the suburbs to a high of 21.4 percent 
in the cities with over one million population. 
Nationally, however, larceny solutions declined 
almost 4 percent when compared to 1965. 

Arrest Rates 

There was very little change in the arrest rate 
for larceny-theft in 1966 when compared to 1965. 
Arrests for this crime, however, had the highest 
rate in 1966, 289 arrests per 100,000 population, 
of any of the serious offenses. The larceny offender 
rate in the cities with over 250,000 population was 
344, a shght decline from 1965 when the rate was 
348. On the other hand, the rate rose slightly in 
the suburbs, from 230 to 235, but declined in the 
rural areas from 116 to 105. The highest arrest 
rate, 406, was in the city group with 100,000 to 
250,000 population. 

The offender rate on a geographical basis dif- 
fered widely in 1966. The Western States had the 
highest rate with 404 larceny arrests per 100,000 
population. The Northeastern States were at the 
other extreme with a rate of 161. In between were 
the Southern States and the North Central States 
with rates of 335 and 306, respectively. 

Persons Arrested 

Almost one-half the total arrests for serious 
crimes in 1966 were for larceny. Arrests for this 
crime were up 4 percent 1966 over 1965. Volume- 
wise, 56 percent of these arrests were of persons 
under 18 years of age and when individuals under 
21 are considered, the ratio jumped to over two- 
thirds. When examined by sex of arrested persons, 
it is determined that females comprise 23 percent 
of all arrests for larceny-theft and have a higher 
involvement in this offense than for any of the 
serious crimes. In fact, women are arrested more 
often for larceny than any other offense except 
drunkenness. 

Arrests of young females imder 15 rose by 14 
percent in 1966, while arrests of young males 
under 15 rose by 8 percent. Arrests of whites 
outnumbered Negroes by over 2 to 1 mth aU 
other races comprising about 2 percent of the 
arrests for larceny-theft.

Persons Charged 

Police charged more than twice as many offend- 
ers for larceny-theft than for any other serious 
offense. Of those arrested for larceny-theft, 78 per- 
cent were formally charged and held for prosecu- 
tive action, and almost one-half, 48 percent, of 
those so charged were juveniles. Adults were found 
guilty as charged in 74 percent of the cases, guilty 
of a lesser charge in 5 percent, and had their cases 
dismissed or were acquitted in 21 percent. 

AUTO THEF 

In Uniform Crime Keporting, auto theft is 
defined as the unlawful stealing or driving away 
of a motor vehicle, including attempts. This 
definition excludes taking for temporary use when 
the vehicle is actually returned by the taker pro- 
viding prior authority for its use has been granted 
or can be assumed. 

Volume 

In 1966, 557,000 motor vehicles were reported 
stolen compared to total estimated thefts of 493,100 
the year before. These thefts occurred at an aver- 
age rate of more than one a minute throughout the 
year. Geographically, the volume of auto theft was 
highest in the Northeastern States which reported 
28 percent of the total number of these crimes. 
Next in order were the North Central States 27 
percent, the Southern States 23 percent, and the 
Western States 22 percent. This crime makes up 17 
percent of the total Crime Index offenses. Seasonal 
variations disclose auto theft generally reaches 
its peak in the fall of the year and 1966 was no 
exception in this respect with October the high 
volume month. 

Trent/ 

Auto thefts in 1966 increased 13 percent in 
volume when compared with 1965. Since 1960, this 
crime has risen steadily recording a 71 percent 
increase over the 7-year period. The theory that 
there are more auto thefts solely because there are 
more autos is invalid when it is shown that the 
percentage increase in auto theft has more than 
doubled the percentage increase in automobile 
registrations since 1960, and more than doubled 
the percentage increase in the young age popula- 
tion, 15 to 24 years. 

Auto theft increases in small cities and in the 
suburban areas were major contributors to the 
overall 13 percent rise. On the average, large cities 



with 250,000 or more population had a 10 percent 
upward trend, the suburban areas registered a 14 
percent upswing, and the rural areas were up 8 
percent in these crimes during 1966. 

Geographically, the theft of autos showed the 
sharpest upward trend in the Southern States with 
a 21 percent increase followed by the North Cen- 
tral States up 15 percent. The Western States were 
up 10 percent, and the Northeastern States had an 
8 percent rise. The following chart shows the sub- 
stantial increases in auto thefts in the last two 
quarters of 1966 when compared with the same 
periods in 1965. 

Auto Theft Rate 

In auto theft, as in other Crime Index offenses, 
there was a substantial increase in the rate in 
1966 over 1965. From 254 victims per 100,000 
population in the earlier year, the rate rose to 
284 in 1966, a jump of 12 percent. The auto theft 
rate has risen 57 percent since 1960. There were 
more persons unlawfully deprived of their motor 
vehicles, 688 per 100,000 population, in the cities 
with 500,000 to one million inhabitants than in 
any other population group. In this regard, as a 
part of a special study it was found that 30 per- 
cent of the autos stolen in the District of Columbia 
were owned by nonresident victims. This is un- 
doubtedly true in other large core cities because 
of the high mobility of the general population. 

Nationally, the auto theft rate in the large 
cities averaged 646. In the suburbs the rate was 
178, and in the rural areas the auto theft rate 
was 61. 

The auto theft rates by geographic region dis- 
closed the Western States were high with 381. 
The Northeastern States reported a rate of 321, 
the North Central States 278, and the Southern 
States 209 thefts per 100,000 inhabitants. 

Nationally, in 1966 one of every 141 registered 
autos was stolen or a rate of 7.1 per 1,000 reg- 
istered autos. Regionally, the highest registration 
theft rate appeared in the Northeastern States 
where 8.9 cars per 1,000 registered vehicles were 
stolen. In the 3 other regions the figures were 8.4 
in the Western States, 6.6 m the North Central 
States, and 5.4 in the Southern States. 

Nature of Auto Theft 

Auto theft rates are indicative of the fact that 
this is primarily a big city problem, since the 
highest rates appear in the most heavily populated

sections of the Nation. In 1966, the average stolen 
automobile was valued at $1,029 at the time of 
theft and although police recovered 90 percent of 
the stolen vehicles, the remaining unrecovered 10 
percent represented a loss of $63,045,000 to the 
victims. This loss figure does not take into con- 
sideration the monetary loss resulting from dam- 
age to the vehicles, property and persons which are 
a direct result of these crimes. 

Uniform Crime Reporting special studies in the 
past have documented auto theft as primarily a 
crime of opportunity. The youthful offender who 
is most often involved finds the vehicle subject to 
theft conveniently ready to drive away or the igni- 
tion easily compromised. This has been generally 
a young white offender but since 1 960 young Negro 
arrests for auto theft have more than doubled. 

Clearances 

Due to the fact that two-thirds of the auto 
thefts occur at night and over one-half are from 
private residences, apartments or streets in resi- 
dential districts, law enforcement agencies were 
successful in solving only about 23 percent of these 



FBI CHART 

thefts by arrest of the offender. The crimes occur 
under cover of darkness and there are seldom any 
witnesses. On the other hand, poUce nationally are 
successful in recovering about 90 percent of all 
stolen cars. About 55 percent of stolen vehicles are 
taken and recovered within 48 hours. Although 
recovery of the vehicle does not clear the offense, 
the property is available for return to the victim. 
This high recovery percentage can be attributed 
to the fact that approximately 75 percent of the 
cars stolen are used for transportation or the pur- 
pose of the theft is unknown. The remainder are 
taken for resale, stripping for parts, or use in a 
crime. 

In the Nation's largest cities 21 percent of the 
auto thefts were cleared during 1966. Police in the 
suburban areas were somewhat more successful 
having cleared 25 percent, while 42 percent of 
these crimes in the rural areas were solved. 
Throughout the country there was a high degree 
of consistency in auto theft clearance percentages 
ranging from 20 percent in the Northeastern 
States to 26 percent in the North Central States. 



26 



In all geographic divisions and population 
groups the participation of the young age group 
population is indicated by the high proportion of 
these offenses which were cleared by arrests of 
persons under 18 years of age. In the large core 
cities, 54 percent were solved by arrests of this 
age group, while juvenile clearances accounted for 
51 percent in the suburbs and 41 percent in the 
rural areas. 

Arrest Rates 

The Nation's offender rate for auto theft in 
1966 was 77 arrests per 100,000 population, 
virtually unchanged from the prior year. Cities 
over 250,000 population had a rate of 113 and the 
rate decreased in each population group as the 
city sizes became smaller. In the suburbs, the 
rate rose from 56 arrests in 1965 to 59 in 1966, and 
there was a decUne in the rural area arrest rate 
from 33 in 1965 to 32 in 1966. 

By geographic region, arrest rates were highest 
in the Western States, 118 offenders per 100,000 
population. Next in descending order were the 
North Central States 79, Southern States 63, and 
the Northeastern States 58. 

Persons Arrested 

Persons arrested for auto theft come principally 
from the young age group population. In 1966, 
63 percent of all persons arrested for this crime 
were under 18 years of age and, as a matter of fact, 
17 percent were under 15 years of age. When per- 
sons under 21 are included in the computations, 
80 percent of the arrests for auto theft are ac- 
counted for. Of all Crime Index offenses, auto 
theft had, by far, the largest percentage of arrests 
of persons under 18. 

The national trend in auto theft arrests dis- 
closed a 4 percent increase in 1966 when compared 
to 1965. Adult arrests rose 5 percent whUe arrests 
of persons under 18 increased 4 percent. 

Next to burglary, auto theft as measured by 
arrests showed the least participation by females. 
Only 4 percent of persons arrested in 1966 were 
female and female arrests for auto theft increased 
2 percent. Females under 15, and those 18 and over, 
each recorded a 4 percent increase. Whites made 
up 70 percent of the arrests for auto theft, Negroes 
28 percent and all other races the remaining 2 
percent. 



Persons Charged 

Again, the involvement of the young age group 
population is made clear through pohce reports 
showing 67 percent of all persons charged for auto 
theft in 1966 were referred to juvenile court 
jurisdiction. This is an increase from 61 percent 
juvenile referrals in 1965. No other Crime Index 
offense results in such a high percentage of juvenUe 
referrals. When the remaining adult offenders 
were considered as a group, 57 percent of those 
prosecuted on charges of auto theft were found 
guilty as charged, 15 percent were convicted or 
plead guilty to a lesser charge and 29 percent were 
acquitted or their cases were dismissed. 

CLEARANCES 

In this Program police clear a crime when they 
have identified the offender, have sufficient 
evidence to charge him and actually take him into 
custody. Crime solutions are also recorded in 
exceptional instances when some element beyond 
police control precludes formal charges against 
the offender, such as the victim's refusal to 
prosecute or local prosecution is declined because 
the subject is being prosecuted elsewhere for a 
crime committed in another jurisdiction. The 
arrest of one person can clear several crimes or 
several persons may be arrested in the process of 
clearing one crime. 

The percentage of Index crimes cleared by law 
enforcement agencies in 1966 was a substantial 8 
percent below the clearance percentage in 1965. 
In fact, this percentage decrease in clearances is 
equal to the 8 percent drop experienced for the 
entire period 1961 through 1965. Whereas police, 
nationally, cleared 26.3 percent of these offenses 
in 1965, in 1966 this dropped to 24.3 percent. 
The decrease was noted in every Crime Index 
offense with robbery solutions having the sharpest 
decUne, down 14 percent. Decreases in solutions 
were universally reported by all population groups 
and by all geographic divisions. The highest over- 
all Crime Index clearance rate was reported by 
the West South Central States, 27.3 percent, 
followed closely by the East North Central 
States, 26.6 percent, and the South Atlantic 
States, 26.5 percent. 

Reports submitted by law enforcement agencies 
in 1966 disclosed police were successful in solving 
89 percent of the murder offenses, 62 percent of 
the reported forcible rapes, 72 percent of the

aggravated assaults and 32 percent of the rob- 
beries. Clearances in the property crime categories 
showed police solved 22 percent of the burglaries, 
19 percent of the larceny-thefts, and 23 percent 
of the auto thefts. Police are able to clear a higher 
])ercentage of the crimes against the person, not 
only because of the more intense investigative 
effort afforded these violent offenses, but also due 
to the smaller volume of these crimes requiring 
|)olice attention and, even more important, be- 
cause witnesses are usually available who can 
identify the perpetrators. 

Offznsei Cleared by Arrests of Juveniles 

It has been pt)inted out in several prior sections 
of this pubUcation that persons under 18 years of 
age are becoming increasingly involved with pohce 
through commission of serious crimes. Persons 
10-17 years of age now make up approximately 
15 percent of the total United States population. 
One way of measuring the involvement of the 
young age group is to identify the number of 
crimes in which they are the offenders. In 1966, 33 
percent of all Crime Index offenses solved involved 
persons under 18 years of age — up from 30 percent 
in 1965, a 10 percent increase. 

Every Crime Index offense except for forcible 
rajje and rubbery recorded an increase in juvenile 
clearances, including a 20 percent rise in murder. 
Juveniles were identified in 52 percent of the auto 
thefts cleared, 45 percent of the larceny-theft, 41 
percent of the burglary, 20 percent of the robbery, 
14 percent of the forcible rape, 9 percent of the 
aggravated assault, and 5.5 percent of the murder. 
Arrests of juveniles resulted in clearing 34 percent 
of the suburban Crime Index offenses and 30 
percent of those in the rural areas. 

There are a number of factors influencing the 
decline in tlie jjolice solution rate. Tliese include 
court decisions which have resulted in restrictions 
on jjolice investigative and enforcement practices, 
sharply increasing |)olice workloads not limited to 
crime increases, and constantly increasing criminal 
mobiUty. Clearance tables are published beginning 
on page 100. 

PERSONS ARRESTED 

In 1966, arrests for all criminal acts, excludmg 
traffic, increased less than one-half of 1 percent. 
Nationally, tliere were 36 arrests for each 1,000 
persons in the United States. In 1965, there were 
37 arrests for each 1,000 inhabitants. The arrest 



rate for big cities as a group was 49 per 1,000 
population, down from 52 in 1965, for suburban 
areas 23, up from 22 in 1965, and for the rural 
areas 14, a decrease from 16 in 1965. The total 
volume of city arrests increased less than one-half 
of 1 percent, \\ hile the suburban volume increased 
4 percent and the rural trend rose 1 percent. 

Arrests are primarily a measure of police 
activit}-. Arrest practices, policies and emphasis 
will vary from place to place and within a com- 
munity from time to time. Tlie volume of police 
arrests for certain imlawfid conduct such as drunk- 
enness, disorderly conduct, and certain local ordi- 
nances is particularly influenced by the above. 
On the other hand, robbery, burglary, and other 
arrests for serious crimes are more likely the result 
of standard procedures. Arrests are first a measure 
of police activity as it relates to crime. Arrests 
do, however, provide a useful index to measure 
involvement in criminal acts by the age, sex and 
race of the perpetrators, particularly for those 
crimes which have a high solution rate. Procedures 
used in this Program require that an arrest be 
coimted on each se]Jarate occasion when a person 
is taken into custody, notified, or cited. Arrests 
do not measure the specific number of individuals 
taken into custody since one person may be 
arrested several times during the year for the 
same or different offenses. As noted above, this 
happens frequently for certahi types of offenses 
against public order such as drunkenness, va- 
grancy, disorderly conduct and related violations. 

Arrest Trends 

For the ])eriod 1960-1966, police arrests for all 
criminal acts, except traffic offenses, have risen 8 
])ercent. During this same period, police arrests of 
persons under 18 years of age rose 59 percent, 
while the number of persons in this young age 
group, 10-17, increased 19 percent. It is apparent, 
therefore, the involvement of these young people, 
as measured by police arrests, is continuing at a 
pace more than three times their percentage 
increase in the national jiopulation. As pointed 
out in prior issues, a relatively small percentage of 
the total young age population become involved 
in criminal acts, about 5 out of 100. From 1960 
to 1966, arrests of i)ersons over 18 declined 
approximately 1 percent. This decrease is almost 
comjjletely controlled by fewer arrests for offenses 
against public order and decency. 

When only the serious crimes are used for trend 
purposes during this seven-year period, it is noted 



29 



arrests increased 36 percent. Arrests of the under 
18 age group for the same crunes rose 54 percent. 
Although adult arrests were also up sharply during 
this period, the upward trend for the young age 
groups was more than double that for adults. The 
young age arrests for violent crimes were up 78 
percent and for the property crimes 52 percent. 
Adult arrests for the violent crimes for the same 
period were up 31 percent and for the property 
crimes 19 percent. 

Nationally, persons under 15 years of age made 
up 9 percent of the total police arrests; under 18, 
23 percent; and under 21, 34 percent. In the 
suburban areas, the involvement of the young 
age group in police arrests is considerably higher 
than the national figures with the under 15 age 
group represented in 13 percent; under 18, 33 
percent, and under 21, 47 percent. In the rural 
area the distributions were lower for the younger 
age group with the under 15 age group being 
involved in 5 percent of the total police arrests; 
under 18 in 20 percent, and those under 21 in 
37 percent. 

In reviewing arrest figures, it is important to 
keep in mind that police arrest practices and 
emphasis vary which will account for some 
variations in these statistics from year to year. 
It is noted that arrests of persons under 18 rose 
20 percent for ai-son, declined 21 percent for 
prostitution and commercialized vice, and in- 
creased 57 percent for Narcotic Drug Law viola- 
tions. In fact, nationally, about 1 of every 3 
individuals arrested for violations of the Narcotic 
Drug laws was a person under 21 years of age. 

Arrests for Narcotic Drug Law violations were 
up 28 percent nationally. From 1960 to 1966, 
arrests for this violation increased 82 percent. 
There is set forth a tabulation by geographic region 
showing the type of narcotic drug involved in the 
arrest of the offender in 1966.

In 1966, male arrests outnumbered female 
arrests 7 to 1. Female arrests in 1966 rose by 
almost 1 percent while male arrests increased less 
than one-half of 1 percent. This was primarily 
influenced by a 9 percent increase in arrests of 
young females under 15 and a 9 percent rise in 
the number under 18 years of age. Females were 
arrested in 14 percent of the serious or Crime 
Index tyjje offenses. Their involvement in these 
crimes was primarily for larceny, about 1 of 
every 7 female arrests. Females accounted for 20 
percent of the forgery, 22 percent of the fraud 
and 19 percent of the embezzlement arrests. 

Traffic 

Supplemental data submitted by cities over 
25,000 population relating to traffic enforcement 
disclosed that nationwide 70 percent of the 
citations and summonses issued and arrests made 
in traffic matters were for parking violations. 
Hazardous traffic violations accounted for 23 
percent, and other violations 7 percent. In the 
Western States 27 percent of the traffic arrests 
were for hazardous violations. In the Southern 
States 26 percent of the arrests were for this 
type of infraction, in the Northeastern States 22 
percent, and in the North Central States 18 
percent.

States. The efforts of Western law enforcement 
agencies to control crime through the arrest of 
offenders are shown by the arrest rates for this 
region. For the total Crime Index and for each 
individual offense, except murder and aggravated 
assault, the Western States recorded a marked 
high rate of activity as measured by arrests. 

PERSONS CHARGED 

Disposition data reveals the results of cases in 
which law enforcement agencies have made an 
arrest and subsequently formally charged the 
offender in a court of jurisdiction. This infor- 
mation is important to the police administrator 
in evaluating the quality of the police investi- 
gation and court presentation fimctions. 

In 1966, 79 percent of the persons arrested for 
Crime Index offenses were turned over to the 
courts. Of the adults charged with Crime Index 
offenses 75 percent were found guilty. 

It must be recognized that not all arrested 
persons are turned over to the courts for prose- 
cution. There are various reasons for this: failure 
of the victim to cooperate or appear for the 
prosecution, persons arrested are released with a 
warning, evidence is obtained which discloses the 
arrested person did not commit the offense or 
there is not sufficient evidence obtainable to 
support either a formal charge or a subsequent 
prosecution. For example, about one-half of the 
juveniles arrested are handled by the individual 
law enforcement agencies without preferring a 
formal charge or referring them to juvenile 
authorities. All contributors to this Program are 
urged to obtain and report final disposition in 
cases involving persons they arrest. Tables con- 
taining this data commences on page 104. Keep 
in mind that police methods of handling juvenile 
offenders differ widely. Also, the Tables con- 
cerning juveniles (local age limit) refer to those 
who were arrested and turned over to juvenile 
authorities in connection with specific criminal 
acts. 

In 1966, as in 1965, 3 out of every 10 murder 
defendants were either acquitted or their cases 
were dismissed at some prosecutive stage. Over 



one-third of those charged with forcible rape were 
acquitted or had their cases dismissed and 3 out 
of 10 persons charged with aggravated assault won 
freedom through acquittal or dismissal. Acquittals 
and dismissals continued to run high in Narcotic 
Drug Law violations which were up from 38 per- 
cent in 1965 to 40 percent in 1966. 

Of the adults who were charged for Crime Index 
offenses, 10 percent were found guilty of a lesser 
crime, and 25 percent were acquitted or their cases 
were dismissed. The highest percentage! of persons 
found guilty on the original charge was in the 
larceny category where 74 percent of the defend- 
ants were convicted for theft. This was followed 
by 60 percent on the original charge of burglary, 
57 percent for auto theft, 51 percent for robbery 
and aggravated assault, 50 percent for murder, and 
40 percent for forcible rape. The offense showing 
the highest percentage conviction on a lesser 
charge was forcible rape where over 1 of every 5 
defendants was convicted on some charge other 
than rape. The offense which had the highest 
percentage of acquittals and dismissals was also 
forcible rape with 42 percent. 

In 49 percent of the cases in the Crime Index 
categories where formal charges were preferred, 
the offender was referred to juvenile court jurisdic- 
tion. This referral percentage was up from 45 
percent in 1965. As in 1965, juvenile referrals 
were highest for auto theft with 67 percent. 
Young persons were referred to juvenile court 
jurisdiction after being charged in 58 percent of 
the burglary cases, 48 percent of the larceny, 
33 percent of the robbery, 19 percent of the forcible 
rape, 17 percent of the aggravated assault, and 
7 percent of the criminal homicide. 

As experienced in 1965, offenses of arson and 
vandaHsm recorded high percentages of juvenile 
referrals in 1966. When all crime categories are 
reviewed, it is noted that convictions on original 
charge remained high in the offenses against 
pubhc order and decency — driving under the 
influence, drunkenness, disorderly conduct and 
vagrancy. Offenses against trust such as fraud, and 
embezzlement also recorded a high percentage of 
conviction on original charge.

CAREERS IN CRIME 

In January, 1963, the FBI initiated a study of 
criminal careers. At the end of calendar year 1966, 
160,310 criminal histories of individual offenders 
had been incorporated into the program. 

The study is made possible by the cooperative 
exchange of criminal fingerprint data among 
local, state and Federal law enforcement agencies. 
The all-important fingerprint card submitted to 
the Identification Division of the FBI by these 
law enforcement agencies contains information 
which serves as a basis for statistical examination 
of careers in crime. While there is a lack of uni- 
formity in submissions made by all law enforce- 
ment agencies for all criminal charges, generally 
it is the practice to submit a criminal fingerprint 
card on all arrests for serious crimes, felonies, and 
certain misdemeanors. Fingerprinting by poUce is 
a part of the "booking" procedure of placing a 
formal charge against an arrested person. The 
arrest and charge have substance and differ from 
temporary detention for questioning or investiga- 
tion. On the Federal level almost all persons 
arrested are fingerprinted by the arresting Federal 
agency or United States Marshals. Federal prisons, 
state penitentiaries and county jails also submit 
fingerprint cards and related data to the FBI 
Identification Division. 

As the fingerprint card constitutes a positive 
means of identification it becomes possible to 
obtain each offender's criminal history. There is a 
limitation, of course, in that the offender must first 
be detected, arrested, and a fingerprint card sub- 
mitted at the time of arrest. Of equal importance 
is the disposition of each arrest which is also 
requested. FBI Identification Division fingerprint 
files of known offenders in this Program are 
"flashed" to provide an accurate means of follow- 
up concerning any future criminal involvement. 
As additional mformation is accumulated on these 
persons, it is added to the record which has been 
previously stored in a computer. These offenders 
are initially selected because they have become 
involved in the Federal process by arrest or release. 
The sample also includes serious state violators 
arrested as fugitives under the Fugitive Felon Act, 
as well as District of Columbia violators. Specifically 
excluded from this study and residting tabulations 
are chronic violators of tlie immigration laws and 
fingerprmts submitted by the mihtary. 

To gain insight into the career of criminal 
repeaters, an analysis was made of the records of 



41,733 persons arrested in 1966 for a Federal crime 
or rearrested locally m 1966 after having been 
mcluded in the Program previously due to a 
Federal arrest subsequent to January 1, 1963. 

Table A describes the distribution by age group 
of the persons arrested in 1966. The emphasis upon 
the youthful offender is immediately apparent 
from the age distributions. It is noted that 49 
percent of the persons in this group were in their 
twenties or younger in 1966. Significantly over 70 
percent of the offenders were first arrested under 
the age of 25.

Leniency m the form of probation, suspended 
sentence, parole and conditional release had been 
afforded to 51.6 percent of the offenders. After 
the first leniency, this group averaged more than 
5 new arrests. For the purposes of this study, 
probation, suspended sentence, parole and con- 
ditional release are referred to as "leniency." It 
goes without saying that probation and parole 
are special forms of treatment of criminals, but 
since they represent a lesser punitive action than 
incarceration, the term leniency is used to point 
up this characteristic. 

From an analysis of the mobility of these 41,733 
offenders a significant fact emerges — nearly 43 
percent of these individuals were arrested in 
one state and 57 percent m two or more states. 
Distribution by sex and race was also considered 
and indicates that 93 percent were males and 7 
percent females; 66 percent were white, 29 per- 
cent Negro and 5 percent all other races. 

Of 41,733 offender records which were proc- 
essed, 36,506 were repeaters; that is they had a 
l)rior arrest on some charge. The average crimmal 
career of the above repeaters amounted to more 
than ten years (span of years from first to last 
arrest). During the period of their criniinal 
career this group averaged over 6 arrests each, 
3 convictions and 2 imprisonments. Keep in mind 



32 



that disposition data is approximately 80 percent 
complete with regard to persons committing 
felonies and slightly less complete for those in- 
volved in misdemeanors or minor offenses. 

These 41,733 individual crimmal records are 
made iij) primarily of Federal offenders who were 
brought into the program due to their involve- 
ment in the Federal process. The fact that most 
of the Federal crimes as defined by statute are 
also local in nature allows one to infer that 
statistics concerning local offenders would closely 
approximate those included in this study. The 
violators contained in this Program generally 
are serious offenders and, therefore, likely re- 
peaters since common law enforcement practice 
is generally not to submit a fingerprint card on 
minor or petty crimes. 

Profiles 

Table B illustrates the i)rofiles of known re- 
peaters by type of crime. The table consists of 
repeaters who were arrested in calendar year 1966. 
It pro\ades insight concerning the degree to which 
repeaters contribute to crime counts year in and 
year out. 

These offenders included in Table B have been 
arrested on at least two occasions and were se- 
lected for inclusion in the study by type of crime 
based on their last charge in 1966. The average age 



of these offenders ranged from 26 years for the 
auto thief to 45 years for the gambler. Considering 
the auto thief who repeated in that offense, his 
average age was 24 at the time of his first arrest 
for auto theft while the average age at first arrest 
for the gambler who repeated was 40 years of age. 
The extreme ranges of age at first arrest for any 
offense were the gambler at age 30 and the burglar 
and rapist at 19 years of age. The average age at 
first arrest is influenced upward since fingerprint 
cards are not submitted \\ath any degree of consist- 
ency on juvenile offenders. 

Criminal careers of these offenders ranged from 
15 years for the gambler to 6 years for the more 
youthful auto thief. The burglar has the highest 
rate of repeating during a criminal career followed 
closely by those who were involved in robbery, 
narcotics, and fraudulent checks. Of the charges 
accumulated by individuals responsible for murder, 
assault, robbery, burglary, auto theft and rape, 50 
percent or more were the more serious Crime Index 
type charges. 

The narcotic offender ranked highest among 
those repeating in the same type of crime as indi- 
cated by 58 percent rearrests in this violation. 
The gambler and burglar followed closely \\dth 57 
and 56 percent, respectively. Of the auto thieves, 
40 percent repeated in auto theft during the 
course of their criminal career, while 38 percent

of the robbers repeated in that category. Those 
involved in fraudulent check activities repeated 
at the rate of 48 percent in this type of crime. For 
those offenders, involved in crimes against the 
person — murder, rape and felonious assault — the 
repetition rate in the same criminal act is much 
lower than property offenders. The frequency of 
probation, suspended sentence and parole granted 
to these offenders ranged from 34 percent for 
gambling to 60 percent for those who had been 
charged with burglary. There appears to be a 
similarity between the burglar and the bogus 
check offender in that 57 percent of the latter 
were granted the above forms of leniency and both 
of these criminal types have a liigh rate of recidi- 
vism in the same type offense. Leniency was 
granted most frequently for specific charges 
involving the bogus check offender, narcotic 
violator, and auto thief. 

The robber, burglar, auto thief, sex offender and 
forger appear to have the highest rate of mobihty 
with over 60 percent having been arrested in two 
or more states during the course of their criminal 



career. 



30 Month Follow-Up 

A study has been made of persons included in 
the Careers in Crime Program who were released 
from custody in 1963. The records of these persons 
were followed for the next 30 months with the 
cutoff for this study being June 30, 1966. Inas- 
much as they were already part of the Careers in 
Crime Program new arrests were stored on mag- 
netic tape and necessary items for this study 
specifically recalled. 

Type of Release 

Of all offenders (17,837) released to the street 
in 1963, 55 percent were rearrested for new offenses 
by June 30, 1966. Chart 18 indicates that persons 
arrested on a new charge within 30 months ranged 
from 30 percent for those released with a fine and 
probation to 67 percent for offenders granted a 
mandatory release by a jienal institution. The 
percentage figure for parole includes 139 persons 
handled by Pre-Release Guidance Centers (Half- 
way Houses) of whom 75 percent were arrested 
within 30 months. It is interesting to note that 83 
percent of those acquitted or dismissed in 1963

were arrested on a new charge within 30 months. 
As indicated earlier, formal police charge and the 
submission of a fingerprint card is done generally 
for felonies or serious misdemeanors. For example, 
only IG percent of all rearrests were for drunken- 
ness, disorderly conduct, serious mo\dng traffic 
violations, and vagrancy. In most instances these 
were secondary arrests of the same offender who 
also was arrested for a more serious oflfense. All 
offenders who repeated during the two and one- 
ludf year |)eriod averaged two arrests. 

Agz 

A further examination of persons released in 
1 963 was made by age group. Chart 19 reflects the 
percentage of ])ersons, by age, who were arrested 
on new charges after being released in 1963. 
The overall high percentage figures are evident 
as well as the large concentration among youthful 
offenders. 

The various types of treatment; probation, 
|)arole and mandatory release for jjersons released 



in 1963, when broken down by percentage figures 
disclose the highest degree of recidi\dsm was among 
the more youthful offenders. Of those granted 
probation, 60 percent under 20 years of age and 
54 i)ercent in the age group 20 through 24 were 
arrested on new charges. Considering those who 
were granted a mandatory release, 81 percent of 
those under 20 and 80 percent of those falUng in 
the. age group 20 through 24 repeated within the 
next 30 months. Statistics describing those persons 
released on parole showed that 68 percent of the 
offenders under 20 years of age and 71 percent of 
those 20 through 24 years of age were repeaters 
within 2)i j^ears. 

A^ob;7;7/ 

The tendency on the part of criminal offenders 
to move about the Nation is illustrated by per- 
centage comparisons describing the amount of 
mobility of those persons who were rearrested 
after release in 1963 (Chart 20). For those granted 
parole, 61 percent of new charges against these

Significant facts emerge from an analysis of

release in 1963. Table C portrays the mobiUty of 
these repeaters by type of charge on which they 
were released in 1963. While a high degree of 
mobility, 52 percent, is apparent regarding all 
types of criminal offenders, some types of criminals 
are more mobile than others. The narcotic offender 
and the gambler are primarily local, repeating 70 
percent and 85 percent, respectively, in the same 
state while the auto thief repeated only 26 per- 
cent in the same state and 74 percent in another 
state. Mobility is certainly an important factor 
with regard to robbery and burglary offenders as 
almost half of the new arrests for persons in- 
volved in these types of crimes were made in 
states other than where originally charged in 1963. 

Type of Crime 

The general tendency toward greater recidi- 
vism appears in the group engaged in the more 
serious types of crimes. This is demonstrated 
in Charts 21 and 22 which describe the percent 
of those released on probation, parole or granted 
mandatory release who accumulated new 
charges within 30 months following their release 
in 1963. The percentage of repeat for the group

released on probation ranged from 72 percent for 
the auto thief, 65 percent for the narcotic and 
burglary offenders to 24 percent for persons re- 
leased on gambling charges. A similarity exists 
with those released on parole in 1963. Of those 
persons released on parole 73 percent of the auto 
thieves and assault violators repeated, 63 percent 
of the burglars repeated, while only 30 percent of 
those released on parole for Federal liquor law vio- 
lations repeated within the next 30 months. While 
a degree of recidivism is evident with respect to all 
those released on probation, parole, or granted 
mandatory release there is obviously a higher 
degree of recidivism among individuals involved 
in the more serious crimes. 

The tendency toward a lesser degree of re- 
cidivism among those persons released on proba- 
tion or fine and probation is understandable 
when the type of offender is considered. Certain 
types of crime, for example income tax evasion, 
theft of Government property, liquor law \'iola- 
tions, and embezzlement are perpetrated by 



FBI CHART 

persons who generally have roots in the community 
and are less likely to repeat. Many of these offend- 
ers are granted probation or fine and probation, 
therefore, it can be expected tha»t recidivism will 
be lower when these types of circumstances are 
considered. 

Criminal Progression 

During 1963, 5,761 persons were released for 
various crimes coming luider the general categories 
of (1) crimes against the person (murder, forcible 
rape, and aggravated assault), (2) crimes against 
property (burglary, larceny, and auto theft), 
and (3) robbery. These persons, during the next 
30 months, accumulated 13,180 new charges or an 
average of over 2 new arrests per person. 

The figures were broken dovni to determine the 
existence of any trends regarding the type of crime 
conunitted by known repeaters. Of those persons 
released in 1963, 258 were rearrested after a con- 
viction for a crime against the person, 5,291 for 
committing a crime against property, and 212

for committing robbery offenses. This follow-up, 
30 months later, indicates the tendency toward 
commission of more violent crimes by repeaters. 
Chart 23 depicts this trend by percentage dis- 
tribution. Of all new arrests within the 30 months 
period for Crime Index type offenses, crimes 
against property amounted to 4,116, while robbery 
increased to 558 and crimes against the person 
to 619. 

Chart 23 illustrates the distribution of new 
Crime Index charges for those persons released 
in 1963 and rearrested. These charts indicate 
that the large proportion of criminal repeating is 



m the i)roperty crimes of burglary, larceny, and 
auto theft. However, 19 percent of the rearrests 
for the property crime offenders were for the more 
serious crimes of violence. Primarily the result 
of this escalation, violent crime offenses were 
more than double on rearrest than in 1963. 

Conclusion 

The Careers in Crime data documents the 
existence of the persistent or hard-core offender 
and the substantial extent to which he contributes 
to the crime problem. The tendency of this 
offender to repeat in crimes of a more serious

nature, coupled with a high degree of mobility, 
further complicates the problem. It is a])parent 
that rehabilitation methods have not been very 
successful with this type of criminal behavior. 
It is obvious that the criminal justice system 
needs to re-examme its methods if criminal careers 
are to be aborted. 

Police arrest supported by the submission of a 
fingerprint card was used as the basis of recidivism 



in this analysis. Conviction and imprisonment 
data will be used in future studies. The delay 
between police formal charge and final court 
disposition prohibited the use of conviction data 
in this analysis. 

The accompanying tables provide added insight 
into the problems of repeaters. The figures are 
based upon a 30 month follow-up after the 
offenders were released in 1963.

POLICE EMPLOYEE DATA 

This publication, commencing on page 149, con- 
tains tables showing average police employee 
strength by geographic division and population 
group, percentages of civilian employees, and an 
individual listing of police employees for reporting 
cities. Tables are published containing data rela- 
tive to law enforcement officers killed and assaulted 
in the line of duty to supplement the narrative 
material which follows. 

Police Employee Rates 

For the first time since 1960, the national average 
police employee rate has changed. In 1966, the 
number of police employees per 1,000 population 
(including civilian personnel) increased to 2.0 from 
the previous rate of 1.9. This increase in the rate 
is an encouraging note, but, realistically viewed, 
this small increase fades into insignificance in light 
of the rapidly rising crime rate and the ever- 
increasing number of calls for police service — both 
criminal and noncriminal. 

Although it is difficult to ascribe the police 
employee rate increase to any specific area, it 
appears the Pacific Division, the only geographic 
division showing an overall rate increase, may have 
had a strong influence in this dhection. Nationally, 
large cities with over 250,000 population, as a 
group, had an increase from 2.6 police employees 
per 1,000 population in 1965 to 2.7 in 1966, while 
the rates in all other city population groups re- 
mained the same as 1965. 

It is true that most United States cities operate 
with a police employee ratio of less than the 
national average of 2.0 per 1,000. In fact, when 
arrayed by quartile, it is found that at least 50 
percent of all United States cities have police 
employee ratios ranging from 1.1 to 1.8 police 
employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 

The ratio of police employees to population in 
the suburban areas continued at 1.4, the same 
as 1965. This indicates the number of law en- 
forcement employees in these areas which have 
rapidly growing po]3idations is barely keeping 
pace, despite the fact these communities have been 
recording the fastest increasmg volume of crime. 
The number of pohce employees in sheriffs' de- 
partments nationally rose sfightly from 1.0 per 
1,000 population in 1965 to 1.1 in 1966. At least 
one-half the suburban pohce departments have 
from 1.0 to 1.8 pohce employees per 1,000 inhabit- 



ants while the interquartile rate range for sheriffs' 
departments is .3 to .9. 

Civilian Employees 

In Table 49 the percentage of total law enforce- 
ment personnel represented by civilian employees 
is tabulated by population group. During 1966, on 
the average, 11 percent of all city police employees 
were civilians, up from 10.7 percent in 1965. 
This upward trend in the percentage of civilian 
employees existed in all but one city population 
group (cities 250,000 to 500,000 inhabitants) and 
was also noted in suburban agencies, up from 12 
percent in 1965 to 13.8 percent in 1966 and in 
sheriffs' departments, up from 15.1 percent to 17.7 
percent. These increases in the percentage of 
civilian personnel are in line with the thinking of 
persons knowledgeable in the science of police 
administration who recommend that all possible 
nonpolice functions in law enforcement agencies be 
delegated to civilian employees, thereby freeing 
sworn personnel for active police duties. In many 
areas, law enforcement administrators have shown 
a reluctance to employ civilians in police depart- 
ments. The ciu-rent upward trend in such employ- 
ment indicates this reluctance is being overcome. 
When it is realized that 85 to 90 percent of the 
average police department's budget is for salaries, 
it makes sense to utilize sworn personnel as com- 
pletely as possible for patrol and other enforcement 
functions. 

Sworn Personnel 

When civUian employees are excluded from 
police employee rates, the average rate for all 
cities is 1.7 sworn personnel per 1,000 population 
(Table 48). This has not changed from the preced- 
ing year when rates for sworn personnel were 
first published. The city rates, nationally, range 
from .1 to 6.7. The sworn personnel rate in sub- 
lu'ban areas is likewise unchanged from the prior 
year, standing at 1.2 with rates ranging from .1 to 
7.4. Sheriffs' departments, on the other hand, 
reported a slight increase in the national average 
of sworn personnel from .8 m 1965 to .9 in 1966. 
The rate range for these departments was .1 to 
7.4. In reviewing rates for sheriffs' offices it must 
be recognized that the law enforcement responsi- 
bihties of these agencies vary widely in different 
sections of the country. In certain areas the func- 
tions of the sheriff are hmited almost exclusively

to civil functions and responsibility for administer- 
ing the county jail facilities. Departments used in 
computing rates, however, are all engaged in full 
scale police activity and are responsible for all 
phases of policing m their jurisdictions. Caution 
should be exercised, however, in using these rates 
due to the variations in the nature and extent of 
the duties performed by sheriffs. 

Sfofc Police and State Highway Patrols 

The pohce employee strengths of State PoUce 
and State Highway Patrol organizations are set 
forth in Table 52. This table provides additional 
data relative to the miles of primary highway and 
the number of state motor vehicle registrations 
per sworn employee, by state. 

Po/i'ce Activity 

The volume and type of police activity, both 
criminal and noncriminal, vary widely from place 
to place. Likewise, pohce poHcy and practice are 
not standardized, resulting in widely differing 
arrest rates from one community to another. 
The table below is provided to show the relative 
police workloads by geographic region using re- 
jjorted Crime Index offenses, criminal aiTests made 
and traffic charges issued per sworn police officer.

The variations in officer workload set forth 
above result from many factors. It assumes that 
all sworn officers in all regions are assigned to 
such duties. This is not the case. Many police 
officers are fully engaged in administrative func- 
tions, special assignments and other non-line 
duties. The extent to which they are so occupied 
varies by area. There are also variations by region 
as to pohce discretion in charging an arrest, as well 
as miscellaneous state laws not a])plicable in 
other states. Enforcement practices also vary, 
specifically with respect to offenses against public 
decency and order. 

It is pointed out the figures set forth in the 
detailed police employee tables (Tables 47 and 48) 
in this pubhcation represent national averages. 



They should be used as a guide and under no 
circumstances shoidd they be considered as 
recommended or desirable police strengths. Ade- 
quate manpower for a specific place can only be 
determined after a careful study and analysis of 
the various factors which contribute to the need 
for police service in that community. 

POLICE KILLED 

The violence directed against law enforcement 
officers acting in the line of duty is clearly 
demonstrated by the number of these officers 
murdered and assaulted from year to year. The 
killing in 1966 of 57 law enforcement officers who 
were performing their sworn duties raised the toU 
of these tragic deaths due to criminal action to 
335 for the 7-year period beginning with 1960. 

Type of Police Activity 

During 1966 the pattern established in prior 
years was maintained in that more law enforce- 
ment officers met violent death when effecting 
arrests and handling prisoners than from any 
other cause. Over one-third of the deaths, 37 
percent, in 1966 resulted from this type of activity. 
Many of these incidents, based on a cold law 
enforcement analysis, could be charged to care- 
lessness on the part of the officer victim in allow- 
ing arrests to become routine and caution wane. 
On the other hand, these deaths demonstrate a 
misplaced trust on the part of the officer victim 
with respect to cold-blooded and violent human 
behavior. Answering disturbance-type calls such 
as family disputes, man with a gun, etc., accounted 
for 23 percent of the murders. The next largest 
number were killings by persons whom the officers 
had stopped for investigation or interrogation 
because of suspicion regarding their actions, 18 
percent of the total. Following in order were 
murders by robbers who were caught in the act 
or who were fleeing the scene of a robbery, 16 
percent; unprovoked attacks by mentally deranged 
persons, 5 percent; and by burglars who were in- 
terrupted in the commission of a biu-glary or who 
were fleeing the scene of a burglary just committed, 
2 percent. The following chart illustrates the type 
of activity in which officers were engaged when 
killed by criminal action for the period 1960-1966. 

The following table contains figures distributing 
police murders by geographic region and by type 
of police activity for 1960-1966.

Weapons \Jizd 

Firetxrms continue to be the instruments of 
death in virtually all police murders. In 1966, 55 
of the 57 law enforcement officer victims died from 
wounds inflicted by firearms. In 41 murders hand- 
guns were used, shotguns in S and rifles m 6. A 
knife was used in each of the two additional fatal 
assaults. Since 1960, firearms have been used as 
the murder weapon in 96 percent of the police 



killings. In this group where firearms were used, 
77 percent of the murders were committed with 
handguns. 

The median years of pohce service of officers 
slain hi the fine of duty since 1960 remained at 
6 years. Eleven and one-half percent of the mur- 
dered officers had been active in law enforcement 
one year or less, 60 percent had 5 or more years 
police e.xperience and about one-third were em- 
ployees with 10 or more years' service.

Type of Assignment 

The officer on car patrol is faced daily with 
numerous situations requiring instantaneous de- 
cision and response. He is the man first on the 
scene in answer to most calls for poUce service and 
during his routine patrols he is confronted with 
the need to interrogate suspicious persons on foot 
and in automobiles. He is the one most apt to 
come face to face with the burglar, the robber, 
and other felons caught in the act of committing 
a crime or desperately fleeing the scene of a re- 
cently completed crime. As a result of these fre- 
quent confrontations, each of which is unique, the 
officer riding in a patrol car most often becomes 
the victim of the pohce killer. 

These statements are not intended to imply, 
under any interpretation, that law enforcement 
officers engaged in other types of pohce duty are 
not likewise presented with similar situations and 
conditions. They are, but not as frequently as the 
car patrolman. 

In 1966, 35 of the officers who lost their lives 
were on car patrol, 16 were detectives or had 
been assigned specialized duty, 5 were technically 
off duty, and one was on foot patrol. Due to the 
fact that a law enforcement oflScer under his oath 
of duty must take action at any time when he 
observes a crime being committed, the five men 
technically off duty sacrificed then- lives when 
they attempted to prevent the commission of a 
crime occurring in their presence. Since 1960, 
221 or 66 percent of the deceased officers were 
assigned to car patrols. 

During 1966, 31 of the officers who died from 
criminal action were being assisted at the crime 
scene by a fellow officer or officers and 26 were 
alone. Throughout the past 7 years covered by 
these figures, 149 officers met death while operat- 
ing unassisted, whereas 186 were receiving help 



from other officers on the scene when they were 
kiUed. 

The table showing the type of police duty to 
which officers were assigned when they were 
murdered cross-referenced to the type of police 
activity in which they were engaged discloses the 
highest incidence of police deaths resulted when 
officers working in one-man patrol cars were 
attempting to make arrests or were transporting 
prisoners. Men assigned to two-man cars who 
were dispatched to answer disturbance-type calls 
such as family quarrels, man with gun, etc., were 
the next most frequent victims. It should be kept 
in mind when reviewing these figures that officers, 
even though assigned to one-man car patrol or 
foot patrol, were often receiving assistance from 
fellow officers on the scene at the time they were 
fatally wounded. 

Time of Murder 

During the 7-year period 1960-1966, more law 
enforcement officers were murdered on Friday 
than any other day of the week. A total of 68 
kilhngs occurred on that day, followed by Satur- 
day with 55 murders, and Sunday with 48. Next 
in descending order were Wednesday 46, Thurs- 
day 45, Monday 42, and Tuesday 31. This pattern 
follows the criminal incidence experience by day 
of week. 

The hours of darkness are, of course, the most 
dangerous. Over 75 percent of the officers who 
were murdered lost their fives as a result of activ- 
ity which took place between 4 p.m. and 4 a.m. 
In fact, the hours from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. were the 
most deadly with 130 murders having occurred 
during this 5-hour period. The period from 12 
midnight to 1 a.m., with 31 officers killed, was 
the highest for any one hoin-. The hour from 1 
a.m. to 2 a.m. accounted for 26 kiUings and the

Police Killers 

Since 1960, there have been 442 persons in- 
volved as offenders in the 335 pohce murders. In 
reviewing the prior criminal histories of these 442 
offenders, the records disclose 76 percent had been 
arrested on some criminal charge before becoming 
involved in the police kilhng. Over one-half of 
those witli prior criminal arrests had been pre- 
viously taken into custody for an assaultive-type 
crime such as murder, rape, robbery, assault with 
a deadly weapon, assault with intent to Idll, etc. 
In 1966, two persons, each of whom had been 
convicted and jailed on a prior occasion for com- 
mitting a murder, were arrested and charged for 
murdering law enforcement officers. Both of these 
men were on parole. This brings to 11 the total 
number of police murderers during the period 
1960-1966 who had been charged on some prior 
occasion with an offense of murder. Nine of these 
had been paroled on the murder charge, one was 
an escapee who fled confinement while serving a 
murder sentence, and one escaped from prison 
while awaiting trial for murder. 

Prior Records of Police Killers 

Among the 442 persons who were involved in 
the pohce kilhngs, 67 percent had prior convic- 
tions on criminal charges and 69 percent of this 
group had been granted leniency in the form of 
parole or i)robation on at least one of these prior 
convictions. In fact, 3 of every 10 of the murderers 
were on parole or jirobation when they murdered 
a poUce officer. 

Ages of Police Killers 

Persons involved in police murders ranged in 
age from a boy of 13 to a man of 73 with the 
median age remaining at 27. The number of those 
under 18 years of age arrested in 1966 (14), 
almost equalled the previous 6-year total (17) in 
this young age group. Fifty percent of the mur- 



derers were in the 20-30 year age bracket mth 
age 25 appearing most frequently. 

Accideiytal Deaths 

In addition to the officers who lost their lives 
through violent criminal action, an additional 200 
law enforcement officers have been killed in acci- 
dents during the past 6 years, with 42 of these 
accidental deaths having occurred in 1966. The 
collection of data on accidental deaths discloses 
113 of these resulted from automobile accidents 
and 50 from motorcycle accidents. Twenty-two 
officers were accidentally killed when struck while 
on fool engaging in traffic control at intersections 
or at accident scenes. Other types of accidents, 
such as accidental discharge of firearms, falls, etc., 
were responsible for 15 additional deaths. 

Assaults on Police 

The law enforcement officer is faced daily with 
many problems. Serious among these are a growing 
segment of public disrespect for these officers and 
a failure of citizens to come to the aid of officers 
being attacked as they attempt to i)erform their 
lawful duties. These attitudes are imdoubtedly 
responsible, in large part, for the nationwide 
increase of 13 percent in the rate of assaults on 
law enforcement officers last year. Nationally, 
there were 12.2 assaults per 100 officers in 1966, 
up from 10.8 in 1965. An increase in the assault 
rate was recorded in everj' geographic division 
and in all but one of the population groups. 
GeographicaUy, the highest assault rate occurred 
in the East South Central States with 19.1 assaidts 
for every 100 officers. Also above the national 
average were assault rates in the South Atlantic 
States with 18.8, the Pacific States with 14.3 and 
the Mountain States with 14.1. 

Every police officer who is assaulted docs not 
suffer personal injury, lunvever, 38 of every 100 
assaults in 1966 resulted in physical harm to the 
officer victim and usually loss of duty-time. 
Table 51 sets out jjolice assault rates by geographic 
division and population group for 1966.

Introduction 



Background 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program is the 
outgrowth of a need for a national and uniform 
compilation of police statistics. This need was 
expressed by law enforcement executives many 
years ago. In 1930, crime reports were solicited 
from police departments throughout the Nation 
based on uniform classifications and procedures 
developed by the Committee on Uniform Crime 
Records of the International Association of Chiefs 
of Police (lACP). In that year the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation (FBI), on request of the 
above organization, assumed the role as the 
national clearinghouse. 

The Committee on Uniform Crime Records, 
lACP, continues to serve in an advisory capacity 
to the FBI in the operation of this Program. The 
assistance of the Committee is especially valuable 
in actively promoting the quality of the reports 
suppUed by the cooperating law enforcement 
agencies. In this connection, the Field Service 
Division of the lACP is also playing an active and 
effective part in quality control through surveys 
of police record and crime reporting systems. 
Dr. Peter P. Lejins, Professor, Department of 
Sociology, University of Maryland, continues as 
a consultant to the FBI in the conduct of this 
Program. 

The Committee on Uniform Crime Records 
met on February 15, 1966, for the purpose of 
discussing computers and data communications 
as new tools to assist police management and 
police operations. The concept of the National 
Crime Information Center (NCIC), a nationwide 
index of documented law enforcement information 
on crime and criminals, was introduced at this 
meeting. The Committee agreed that standardi- 
zation was an absolute necessity for successful 
implementation of the NCIC and toward this end 
recommended the appointment of an Advisory 
Group to the Committee on Uniform Crime 
Records. The Advisory Group woidd consist of 
local, state and Federal law enforcement repre- 
sentatives with data processing experience and 



familiar with computer usage. The role of the 
Advisory Group is to recommend standards, 
poHcies and procedures to be applied in the NCIC 
system operation. 

Based on the Committee's recommendation, an 
Advisory Group was formed and met on four 
separate occasions during 1966. In October, 1966, 
the Committee on Uniform Crime Records met 
jointly with the Advisory Group, at which time 
the latter group reported its recommendations on 
the natiu-e of the initial files to be stored in NCIC 
as well as some of the procedures with respect to 
inquiries and storage of records. The nature of 
the communications network to be used in the 
NCIC system was explained. The Executive 
Committee and the entire membership of the 
International Association of Chiefs of Police 
approved the report of the Advisory Group, 
including recommendations that the Committee 
on Uniform Crime Records be expanded to 
include representatives from state patrol or state 
police organizations and that the Advisory 
Group be made a permanent adjunct to the 
Standing Committee. 

In March, 1966, a Committee on Uniform 
Crime Reporting was established within the 
National Sheriffs' Association for the purpose of 
providing assistance and encouragement to sheriffs 
in the maintenance of adequate records and in 
their participation in the Uniform Crime Re- 
porting Program. The Committee wiU serve in 
an advisory capacity and will represent more than 
3,000 sheriffs throughout the United States. 
At its December, 1966, meeting the Committee 
resolved to take affirmative action to encourage the 
participation of all sheriffs' offices in this volimtary 
Program. 

Committees on Uniform Crime Reporting 
within state law enforcement associations are 
active in providing service by promoting interest 
in the Uniform Crime Reporting Program, foster- 
ing more widespread and more intelligent use of 
imiform crime statistics and by lending assistance 
to contributors when the need exists. 

51 



Obyecf/Vcs 

The fundamental objective of this Program is 
to produce a reliable fund of nationwide criminal 
statistics for administrative and operational use 
of law enforcement agencies and executives. At 
the same time, meaningful data is provided for 
other professionals with related interests in the 
crime problem and for scholars, as well as to 
inform the public of general crime conditions. 

Specifically, the means utilized to attain these 
goals are: (1) an attempt is made to measure 
the extent, fluctuation and distribution of serious 
crime in the United States through the use of a 
Crime Index consisting of seven selected offenses. 
This count is based on these seven offenses being 
reported to the police or coming directly to their 
attention. (2) The total volume of all types of 
criminal offenses is compiled as they become 
known by police arrests. (3) Since the above are 
also measures of law enforcement activity, re- 
lated data is collected to demonstrate effectiveness 
of enforcement activities, available police strength 
and significant factors involved in crime. 

Reporting Procedure 

Under this national voluntary system each 
contributing law enforcement agency is wholly 
responsible for compiling its own crime reports 
for submission to the FBI. Each contributor is 
supplied with the Uniform Crime Reporting 
Handbook which outUnes in detail procedures 
for scoring and classifying offenses. The Hand- 
book illustrates and discusses the monthly and 
annual reporting forms, as well as the numerous 
tally sheets made available to facilitate the 
periodic tabulation of the desired data. 

The pubhcation of the Uniform Crime Report- 
ing "Newsletter," which was initiated in October, 
1963, has continued with issues being published 
when pertinent. This "Newsletter" is utilized to 
explain revisions in the Program as well as to 
present information and instructional material 
to assist contributors. 

Recognizing that a sound records system is 
necessary if crime reporting is to meet desirable 
standards, the FBI furnishes a Manual of Pohce 
Records to law enforcement agencies upon request. 
Special Agents of the FBI are widely utilized to 
encourage new contributors and to assist them 
by explaining the procedures and definitions 
necessary imder this imiform system. 

On a monthly basis, city police, sheriffs and 
state police report the number of offenses that 



become known to them in the following crime 
categories: criminal homicide, forcible rape, rob- 
bery, assault, burglary, larceny, and auto theft. 
This count is taken from a record of all complaints 
of crimes received by the jjolice from victims or 
other sources or discovered by the pohce in their 
own operations. Complaints determined by pohce 
investigation to be unfounded are eliminated 
from this count. The number of "offenses known" 
in these crime categories is reported to the FBI 
without regard to whether anyone is arrested, 
stolen property is recovered, local prosecutive 
pohcy, or any other consideration. Pohce agencies 
report on a monthly basis the total number of 
these crunes which they clear by arrest and, 
separately, the crimes cleared by the arrest of 
persons under 18 years of age. Police additionally 
report certain other analytical data pertaining 
to specific crime categories, including total arrests 
made for the month for all criminal acts separated 
as to adults and juveniles. 

In annual reports, "offenses known" data and 
clearances by arrest are summarized by the 
contributors. Annual forms provide a report of 
persons arrested for all criminal offenses with 
respect to age, sex and race of the offender, as 
well as an accounting of the number of persons 
formally charged and their disposition. Police 
employee data are collected annually, including 
the number of police killed and assaulted. 

Reporting Area 

During the calendar year 1966, crime reports 
were received from law enforcement agencies 
representing 97 percent of the total United 
States population living in standard metropolitan 
statistical areas, 88 percent of the population in 
other cities, and 75 percent of the rural population. 
The combined coverage accounts for 92 percent of 
the national population. 

Presentation of crime data by areas as used in 
this publication follows as closely as practical the 
definitions used by the Bureaus of the Budget and 
Census for standard metropolitan statistical areas 
and other cities. There is, however, some deviation 
insofar as the rural area is concerned. For crime 
reporting purposes rural is generally the unin- 
corporated portion of a county outside of standard 
metropolitan statistical areas. In addition, sheriffs' 
departments or state police agencies frequently 
provide coverage for small incorporated com- 
mimities which do not provide their own police 
service. These places are characteristically more 



52 



rural than urban, thus the crime counts for these 
places are included in the rural tabulations. In 
addition, statistics are presented in certain tables 
relative to "suburban" areas. A suburban area 
consists of cities with 50,000 or less population to- 
gether with counties which he within a standard 
metropolitan statistical area. In this use of 
suburban the core city experience is, of course, 
excluded. The suburban area concept is used 
because of the peculiar crime conditions which 
exist in these communities surrounding the major 
core cities. These metropolitan areas are not rural 
in nature, yet neither are they comparable to 
large cities although they have many of the 
problems identified with the latter. 

Standard metropolitan statistical areas are gen- 
erally made up of an entire county or counties 
having at least one core city of 50,000 or more 
inhabitants, with the whole meeting the require- 
ments of certain metropohtan characteristics. 
In New England, "to^vn" instead of "county" is 
used to describe standard metropohtan statistical 
areas. These to^vns do not coincide generally with 
estabhshed crime reporting units; therefore, metro- 
pohtan state economic areas in New England are 
used in this area tabulation since they encompass 
an entire county or counties. Standard metro- 
politan statistical areas make up an estimated 68 
percent of the total United States population. 

Other cities are urban places outside standard 
metropohtan statistical areas. Most of these 
places of 2,500 or more inhabitants are incor- 
porated and comprise 12 percent of the 1966 
estimated population. Rural area^ are made up of 
the unmcorijorated portions of coimties outside of 
urban places and standard metropohtan statistical 
areas and represent 20 percent of our national 
population. Throughout this Program, sheriffs, 
county poUce and many state police report on 
crimes committed within the limits of the county 
but outside cities, while pohce report on crimes 
committed within the city limits (urban places). 

Verification Processes 

Uniformity of crime data collected under this 
Program is of primary concern to the FBI as 
the national clearinghouse. With the receipt of 
reports covering approximately 8,400 jurisdictions, 
prepared on a voluntary basis, the problems of 
attaining uniformity are readily apparent. Issu- 
ance of instructions does not complete the role of 
the FBI. On the contrary, it is standard operating 
procedure to examine each incoming report not 



only for arithmetical accuracy but also, and 
possibly of even more importance, for reasonable- 
ness as a possible indication of errors. 

Variations in the level and ratios among the 
crime classes estabhshed by previous reports of 
each agency are used as a measure of possible 
or probable incompleteness or changes in reporting 
pohcy. Necessary arithmetical adjustments or 
imusual variations are brought to the attention of 
the submitting agency by correspondence. During 
1966, 16,700 letters were addressed to contributors 
primarily as a result of verification and evaluation 
processes. Correspondence \vith contributors is the 
principal tool for supervision of quahty. Not only 
are the individual reports studied, but also periodic 
trends for individual reporting units are prepared, 
as are crime rates in descending order for all units 
grouped for general comparabihty to assist in de- 
tecting variations and fluctuations possibly due to 
some reason other than chance. For the most part, 
the problem is one of keeping the contributors 
informed of the type information necessary to the 
success of this Program. 

The ehmination of duphcation of crime reporting 
by the various agencies is given constant atten- 
tion. In addition to detailed instructions as to 
the Umits of reporting jm-isdictions between 
sheriffs and pohce in urban places, hsts of urban 
places by county are furnished to sheriffs, county 
pohce, and in some instances state police 
organizations. 

Uniform Crime Reporting has been taught to 
all law enforcement officers attending the FBI 
National Academy. The Academy was estabhshed 
in 1935, and there are 3,044 graduates who are still 
in law enforcement, over 27 percent of whom are 
the executive heads of law enforcement agencies. 
The FBI also presents this subject to regional 
pohce schools throughout the country. 

Contacts by Special Agents of the FBI ore 
utilized to enlist the cooperation of new contrib- 
utors and to explain the purpose of this Program 
and the methods of assembling information for 
reporting. When correspondence, including spe- 
cially designed questionnaires, fails. Special Agents 
may be directed to visit the contributor to affirma- 
tively resolve the misunderstanding. 

Variations from the desired reporting standards 
which cannot be resolved by the steps indicated 
above are brought to the attention of the Com- 
mittee on Uniform Crime Records of the lACP. 
The Committee may designate a representative 
to make a personal visit to the local department 



53 



to assist in the needed revision of records and 
reporting methods. 

It is clear, of course, that regardless of the extent 
of the statistical verification processes used by the 
FBI, the accuracy of the data assembled under 
this Program depends upon the degree of sincere 
effort exerted by each contributor to meet the 
necessary standards of reporting and, for this 
reason, the FBI is not in a position to vouch for 
the validity of the reports received. 

The Criim Totals 

Communities not represented by crime reports 
are relatively few, as discussed previously and as 
shown by an examination of the tables which 
follow presenting 1966 crime totals for the Index 
of Crime classifications. The FBI conducts a con- 
tinuing program to further reduce the unreported 
areas. 

Within each of the three areas — standard met- 
ropolitan statistical, other urban, and rural — it is 
assumed that the unreported portion had the same 
proportionate crime experience as that for which 
reports were received. In lieu of figures for the 
entire year from those agencies, reports for as 
many as 9 months were accepted as sufficiently 
representative on which to base estimates for the 
year. Estimates for unreported areas are based 
on the reported crime experience of similar areas 
within each state. Certain refinements are made of 
this basic estimating procedure as the need arises. 



.rirm 



Tnnds 



Crime data for trends are homogeneous to the 
extent that figures from identical reporting units 
are used for each of the periods tabulated. In all 
trend tabulations only those reporting units are 
used which have provided comparable data for 
the period under consideration. National, geo- 
graphic, and area trends are always estabUshed 
on the basis of two consecutive years. Exclusions 
from trend computations are made when figures 
from a reporting unit are obviously inaccurate 
for any period or when it is ascertained that 
unusual fluctuations are due to such variables as 
improved records procedures and not to chance. 

As a matter of standard procedure crime trends 
for individual places are analyzed five times a 
year by the FBI. Any significant increase or 
decrease is made the subject of a special inquiry 
with the contributing agency. In 1966, for exam- 
ple, more than 2,000 letters were sent to police 
administrators of contributing agencies inquiring 



as to the reason for significant increases or 
decreases in pertinent crime classifications. The 
communication containing this inquiry specifically 
directs attention to possible changes in records or 
reporting procedures. When it is found that 
crime reporting procedures are in part responsible 
for the difference in the level of crime, the figures 
for specific crime categories or totals are excluded 
from the trend tabulations. Year-to-year trends 
in Uniform Crime Reports are valid and may be 
used to reasonably establish long-term trends as 
well as to re-estimate crime volume and recon- 
struct crime trends for prior years. It can be 
assumed logically that the current year is the most 
complete in terms of volume. Trend or percent 
change as established by comparable units for 
each two-year period is then applied as the basis 
for re-estimating the volume of crime for prior 
years. 

On the other hand, crime rate tables by state and 
standard metropolitan statistical area contain the 
most reliable reports available for the current 
year, and care should be exercised in any direct 
comparisons with prior issues. Changes in crime 
level may have been due in part to improved 
reporting or records procedures rather than to 
chance. 

Population Data 

In computing crime rates by state, geographic 
division, and the Nation as a whole, population 
estimates released by the Bureau of the Census 
on September 16, 1966, were used. Population 
estimates for individual cities and counties were 
prepared by using Special Census Reports, state 
sources and estimates, commercial sources, and 
extrapolation where no other estimate was avail- 
able. Complete 1966 population estimates for indi- 
vidual cities and counties were used from 27 
states while official sources in other states provided 
limited data which was used selectively. The esti- 
mated United States population increase in 1966 
was 1.1 percent over 1965 according to figures 
published by the Bureau of the Census. 

Clasiification of Offenses 

A stumbling block to a uniform national crime 
reporting system in the United States results from 
variations in definitions of criminal violations 
among the states. This obstacle, insofar as uni- 
formity of definitions is concerned, was removed 
by the adoption of an arbitrary set of crime classi- 
fications. To some extent the title of each classifi- 



54 



cation connotes in a general way its content. 
However, in reading the explanation of each cate- 
gory, it is very important to keep in mind that 
because of the differences among the state codes 
there is no possibility in a system such as this to 
distinguish between crimes by designations such 
as "felony" and "misdemeanor." 

A continuing program is carried out to furnish 
contributors with timely supplemental instruc- 
tions as the need arises in certain classifications. 
These are aimed at the clarification of any mis- 
understandings which may arise and the redirec- 
tion of attention to the proper application of classi- 
fication procedures under this system. 

Brief definitions of crime classifications utilized 
in this Program are listed below: 

1. Criminal homicide. — (a) Murder and non- 
negligent manslaughter: all willful felonious homi- 
cides as distinguished from deaths caused by 
negUgence. Excludes attempts to kill, assaults to 
kill, suicides, accidental deaths, or justifiable 
homicides. Justifiable homicides are limited to: 
(1) the killing of a person by a peace officer in 
line of duty; (2) the killing of a person in the act 
of committing a felony by a private citizen, (b) 
Manslaughter by negligence: any death which 
the police investigation establishes was primarily 
attributable to gross negligence of some individual 
other than the victim. 

2. Forcible rape. — ^Rape by force, assault to 
rape and attempted rape. Excludes statutory 
offenses (no force used — victim under age of 
consent) . 

3. Robbery. — Stealing or taking anything of 
value from the person by force or violence or by 
putting in fear, such as strong-arm robbery, 
stickups, armed robbery, assault to rob, and 
attempt to rob. 

4. Aggravated assault. — Assault with intent to 
kill or for the purpose of inflicting severe bodily 
injury by shooting, cutting, stabbing, maiming, 
poisoning, scalding, or by the use of acids, ex- 
plosives, or other means. Excludes simple assault, 
assault and battery, fighting, etc. 

5. Burglary — breaking or entering. — Burglary, 
housebreaking, safecracking, or any unlawful entry 
to commit a felony or a theft, even though no 
force was used to gain entrance and attempts. 
Burglary followed by larceny is not counted again 
as larceny. 

6. Larceny — theft (except auto theft). — (a) Fifty 
dollars and over in value; (6) under $50 in value. 
Thefts of bicycles, automobile accessories, shop- 



lifting, pocket-picking, or any stealing of property 
or article of value which is not taken by force and 
violence or by fraud. Excludes embezzlement, 
"con" games, forgery, worthless checks, etc.

The Index of Crime, (966 



In this section, tabulations are shown to indicate 
the probable extent, fluctuation and distribution 
of crime for the United States as a whole, geo- 
graphic divisions, individual states and standard 
metropolitan statistical areas. The measure used 
is a Crime Index consisting of seven important 
offenses which are counted as they become known 
to the law enforcement agencies. Crime classifica- 
tions used in the Index are: murder and non- 
negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, 
aggravated assault, burglary — breaking or enter- 
ing, larceny $50 and over, and auto theft. 

The total number of criminal acts that occur is 
unknown, but those that are reported to the police 
provide the first means of a count. Not all crimes 
come readily to the attention of the police; not all 
crimes are of sufficient importance to be significant 
in an index; and not all important crimes occur 
with enough regularity to be meaningful in an 
index. With these considerations in mind, the 
above crimes were selected as a group to furnish 



an abbreviated and convenient measure of the 
crime problem. 

It is important to remember in reviewing the 
tables in this section that the volume of crime in 
a state or standard metropolitan statistical area 
is subject to the factors set forth on page vi. 
Estimates of current permanent population are 
used to construct crime rates. With our highly 
mobUe population all communities, metropoUtan 
areas and states are affected to a greater or lesser 
degree by the element of transient population. 
This factor is not accounted for in crime rates 
since no reliable estimates by state are available 
nationwide. 

This year tables are presented showing the com- 
parative crime experience by population group of 
suburban cities having 50,000 or less inhabitants 
with cities of the same size isolated from suburban 
areas. The effects of being a part of the metro- 
politan fringe can be readUy discerned by a review 
of these tables.

General United States Crime Statistics 



The data presented in this section are primarily 
of value to law enforcement executives, news 
media and others for the purpose of comparing 
the crime experience of a community with the 
averages reported nationally by communities of 
similar size. Crime trends and rates are tabulated 
by grouping places according to population size. 
Police performance in clearing crimes by arrest is 
presented by population group and geographic 
division. 

National city averages are also shown indicating 
the type and value of the property stolen, by 
offense and type, and value recovered by police 
investigation. Robbery, burglary, and larceny- 
theft are examined by type, as well as where and 
when they occurred. An analysis is provided 
showing weapons used to commit murders as 
well as a distribution of murder victims by age, 
sex and race. Dispositions made of persons for- 
mally charged for all criminal offenses are set 
forth in Table 15 and disposition data on juvenile 
offenders is provided by population group in 
Table 17. 

City, suburban, and rural area arrest rates are 
shown for all criminal offenses. Arrest rates by 



population group are also listed for specific 
offenses. This is another step in building totals 
for crime categories other than those in the Crime 
Index and in presenting crimes known to the 
police through arrests. 

Statistical data relating to suburban areas are 
provided for the use of law enforcement officials 
in suburban communities in making limited com- 
parisons. Places used to establish totals for 
suburban areas include cities with 50,000 or less 
population together with county law enforcement 
agencies in standard metropolitan statistical areas. 
Of course, the crime experience of the large core 
city is excluded. 

It is important to remember in studying 
averages that usually about half the units used 
must be above and about half below. National 
averages can provide the police administrator with 
valuable guidance in analyzing the local crime 
count, as well as the performance of his force in 
combating crime. The analysis, however, does 
not end with such a comparison, for it is only 
through an appraisal of local conditions that a 
clear pictiu-e of the community crime problem or 
the effectiveness of the police operation is possible.

Arrest Data 



Tables in the following section provide certain 
personal characteristics of individuals arrested for 
all criminal acts. Arrest rates and trends are shown 
for city, suburban and rural areas, as well as the 
United States as a whole. Tabulations are published 
containing characteristics of persons arrested by 
age, sex and race. 

Arrest statistics are collected annually from con- 
tributing law enforcement agencies and the figures 
used in the tables this year were submitted by 
agencies representing 70 percent of the United 
States population. In using these arrest figures it 
is important to remember that the same person 
may be arrested several times during one year for 
the same type or for different offenses. Each arrest 
is counted. Further, the arrest of one person may 
solve several crimes and, in other instances, two 



or more persons may be arrested during the 
solution of one crime. 

Arrests are primarily a measure of police activity, 
as it relates to crime. Although police arrest 
practices vary, particularly with respect to 
juveniles, contributors to this Program are in- 
structed to count one arrest each time an individual 
is taken into custody for committing a specific 
crime. A juvenile is counted as a person arrestad 
when he commits an offense and the circumstances 
are such that if the offender were an adult, an 
arrest would be made. 

Arrest data, while primarily a measure of law 
enforcement activity, is also a gauge of criminaUty 
when used within its limitations, as must be done 
with all forms of criminal statistics, including 
court and penal.

Police Employee Data 



This section contains tables relating to police 
personnel. Figures showing police strength by 
number of fuU-time poUce officers and civilian 
employees are based on national averages. These 
figures should not be interpreted as indicating 
recommended or desirable police strength. Ade- 
quate police requirements for a specific place can 
only be determined following careful study and 
analysis of the local situation together with a 
thorough evaluation of the numerous factors 
which affect local police needs. 

Two tables containing poUce employee rates 
are set forth. In the first, total employees including 
civiUan personnel are used, whereas in the second 
table only sworn personnel are used to compute 
rates. 

The police employee rate ranges in Table 47, 
which include civilians, show the interquartile 
range between the upper limits of the lowest 
quartUe and the lower limits of the highest quar- 
tUe. In other words, 50 percent of the cities shown 
in each popidation group and geographic division 
have a police strength within the rate ranges 
shown. By arraying rates in this manner, extremes 
are eliminated. 

In Table 48 where rates are pubUshed for police 
officers, complete rate ranges are provided as 
supplemental data for those who may be interested 
in using these figures to make limited comparisons. 

Another table is presented showing police 
strength for all state police and state highway 
patrol organizations. This table is designed to 



show, by state, the number of miles of state and 
Federal highway per sworn employee, as well 
as the number of registered vehicles per officer. 
These rates are only a rough yardstick as to com- 
parative workload and personnel strength because 
of widely differing functions and other factors. 
The wide variations in sworn and civilian person- 
nel among the various states can be accounted for 
in part by the differences in responsibilities as- 
signed to the departments. It is pointed out, for 
instance, that state police generally are responsible 
not only for traffic patrol, but also conduct a 
major portion of the criminal investigative work 
in the unincorporated areas of the states. On the 
other hand, the activities of the state highway 
patrol organizations for the most part are limited 
to traffic and highway patrol, which includes 
handling all types of crime which come to their 
attention during the performance of theu- patrol 
functions. Many of these state highway patrol 
groups also are authorized to and do participate 
in criminal investigative work when requested 
to do so by local departments or sheriffs' offices. 

The annual collection of police employee data 
provides figures for poUce killed and assaulted. 
Collection of these data is supplemented with 
respect to poUce killed in the line of duty through 
the use of a special questionnaire, by means of 
which additional details on this important subject 
are accumulated. Data relative to police killed 
and assaulted are also presented in the Summary 
Section of this pubUcation.
