Preface 

Perhaps never in our history has there been such widespread concern over 
crime and the capability of our criminal justice agencies to contend with it. 
The passage of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 is 
the result of a national demand for public order. This far-reaching Act, signed 
into law by the President, promises substantial financial and functional sup- 
]5ort to local and state law enforcement agencies. Achievement of this Act's 
objective — to improve the performance of law enforcement — will depend on 
wise application of the funds available and sound implementation of the Act's 
provisions by state and local agencies. 

As T stated on these pages last year, a vital need within the state is effective 
criminal justice statistical programs. Crime statistics are necessary if the states 
are to know the extent and nature of the crime problem and be in a position 
to intelligently plan for and evaluate their criminal justice systems. These 
jirograms are an essential part of statewide computerized information systems 
which are rapidly being developed. The FBI has been providing assistance to 
a number of states during the past several years in developing statewide 
programs of police statistics and stands ready to afford such assistance to all 
states upon request. The Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act offers 
the states financial help in developing and implementing such systems, including 
a collection of police statistics. 

Uniform Crime Reports provides this country's only nationwide view of 
crime. This Program does present a practical measure of this Nation's most 
common local crime problems. Like the collection of other mass social data, 
it cannot be statistically pure. The develojjment of state programs of police 
statistics will further improve the quality and completeness of Uniform Crime 
Reports. Certainly, any national collection of complete criminal justice statistics 
will require standards that can be obtained only through centralized state 
programs. 

The National Crime Information Center, operating as a computerized 
nationwide index utilized by law enforcement at local, state and Federal 
levels, provides a nucleus of information interchange. This system and related 
state systems are the tools by which a more effective and efficient flow of law 
enforcement information is being accomplished.

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 publi- 
cation 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 limited 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 community j^opulation and the metro])olitan area 
of which it is a part. 

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

Economic status and mores of the population. 

Relative stability of population, including commuters, seasonal, and other 
transient types. 

Climate, including seasonal weather conditions. 

Educational, recreational, and religious characteristics. 

Effective strength of the police force. 

Standards governing appointments to the police force. 

Policies of the prosecuting officials and the courts. 

Attitude of tlie public toward law enforcement problems. 

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

CRIME INDEX TOTALS 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program em- 
ploy's 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, 
burglary, 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 
local crime problem. They are all serious crimes, 
either by their very nature or due to the volume in 
which they occur. Basically, they can be categor- 
ized 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 soiu-ce for obtaining 
a count of crime is the next logical imiverse, 
namely, crimes which come to police attention. 
The crimes used in the Crime Index are those 
considered to be most consistently reported to 
police and the computations of crime trends and 
crime rates are prepared using this universe — 
offenses known to police. 

The crime counts set forth in this publication are 
actual offenses established by police investigation. 
When police receive a complaint of a crime and 
the follow-up investigation discloses no crime 
occurred it is "unfounded." In 1967, on a national 
average, police investigations "unfounded" four 
percent of the citizen complaints concerning Crime 
Index offenses, ranging from 3 percent in the 
larceny classification to 18 percent in the forcible 
rape comi)laints. Unfounded complaints are elim- 
inated from these crime counts. 

In calendar year 1967 more than 3.8 million of 
these serious crimes were reported to law enforce- 
ment agencies, a 16 percent national increase over 
1966. The violent crimes as a group make up 13 
percent of the Crime Index total and rose 16 
])ercent, with murder up 11 percent, forcible rape 
7 percent, robbei-y 28 percent, and aggravated 
assault 9 percent. Each of the property crimes 
recorded an increase, thereby contributing to the 
17 i)erceiit rise in this grou]) of offenses which 
represents 87 percent of the Crime Index total. 
Bm-glary was up 16 i)ercent and larceny $50 and 



over in value increased 17 percent. Auto theft 
continued its upward trend by registering an 

18 percent increase. Since 1960, the violent crimes 
have increased 73 percent, property crimes 91 
percent, and the combined total 89 percent in 
volume. 

The suburban areas continued to show a sharp 
upswing in the volume of crime with a 16 percent 
rise. The large core cities having populations in 
excess of 250,000 were up 17 percent in volume and 
the rural areas were up 12 percent. Among city 
groups, those places with more than 100,000 
inhabitants experienced a 17 percent crime 
increase and within this group cities having over 
one million inhabitants recorded a 7 percent rise. 
Although the trend of crime continues sharply 
upward in suburban areas, a much higher volume 
of crime occurs in the large cities. 

Each individual crime classification had in- 
creases in each geographic region with the volume 
of crime in the North Central States in 1967 up 

19 percent, the Northeastern States 17 percent, 
and the Western and Southern States each up 15 
percent. 

Estimated 1967 crime figures for the United 
States are set forth in the following table. As 
explained on page 56 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 realistic point of view, a 
crime rate shoidd be considered as a count of 
victims. The discussion that follows will demon- 
strate tliat the risk of becoming a victim of crime 
in this country is increasing and that population 
growth cannot alone account for the crime 
increases. 

The national Crime Index rate rose from 1,667 
offenses per 100,000 popidation in 1966 to 1,922 in 
1967, a 15 percent increase in the victim rate. 
The rise in the national crime rate since 1960, or 
the risk of being a victim of one of these crimes, 
has risen 71 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 
otlier elements which contribute to the amount of 
crime ii\ a given area. The statistical tables in 
this publication disclose that the varying crime

The overall crime rate increase in 1967 was 
attributable to the upward climb of violent 
crimes, as well as crimes against property. The 



above table discloses each crime category re- 
corded a rate increase ranging from 6 percent in 
forcible rape to 27 percent in robbery. The 
number of crimes per unit of i)opulation is, as 
expected, highest in the large metropolitan 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 
1967 by showing percentage changes in volume 
and rate of crime together with the population 
increase. Separate charts provide similar informa- 
tion relative to crimes of violence and crimes 
against property. Since 1960, the rate for crimes 
of violence as a group increased 57 percent and 
property crime rate rose 73 percent. 

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

MURDER AND NONNEGLIGENT 
MANSLAUGHTER 

This Crime Index offense includes all willful 
killings without due process and is scored on the 
basis of police investigation as opposed to any 
decision of a court, coroner, jury or other judicial 
body. Deaths caused by negligence are not in- 
cluded in this category but are counted as 
manslaughter by negligence. 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, accidental 
deaths and justifiable homicides. 



Vol 



ome 



In 1967 there were an estimated 12,090 murders 
committed in the United States. When compared 



to the 10,920 murders recorded in 1966, this 
represents a numerical increase of 1,170 homicides, 
and is the largest absolute rise over any prior year 
in the 1960's. This crime makes up less than 3 per- 
cent of the crimes of violence, and less than one- 
half of 1 percent of all Crime Index offenses. As 
in prior years, more miu"ders were committed in 
the summer months, yet December, 1967, was the 
peak month of the year. December has been the 
peak month each calendar year during the past 
decade with the exception of 1963. Volumewise, 
48 percent of the murders occurred in the Southern 
States. The North Central States contributed 23 
percent, the Northeastern States 16 percent, and 
the Western States recorded 13 percent of the will- 
ful killings nationwide. 



Trend 

Murder increased 11 percent in 1967 over 1966. 
Since 1960, the number of murders has risen 34 
percent. The following chart indicates the trend 
in the volume of murder as well as the trend in 
the murder rate, 1960 tlirough 1967. 

Regionally, murder rose 15 percent in the 
Northeastern and North Central States in 1967. 
Tliis was followed by a 14 percent increase in the 
Western States and a 7 percent increase in the 
Southern States. The Nation's big cities with 
250,000 or more inhabitants registered a 20 percent 
increase in 1967 over 1966. This percentage in- 
crease was more than double that in the suburbs, 
which witnessed an 8 percent rise whUe murder 
in the rural areas was up 6 percent.

Murder Rate 

In 1967, there were 6.1 victims per 100,000 
population, up from 5.6 in 1966, a 9 percent 
increase in tlie murder rate. Nationwide, cities 
with 250,000 or over popuhition had a murder 
rate of 11.9 per 100,000 popuhition, up 20 percent 
over 190t). In tiie suburban areas tiie rate was 
3.3, an increase of 10 percent over the jirior year, 
while the rural areas had a rate increase of 4 
percent to 5.9. 

The number of miu-der victims in proportion to 
population was highest in the Southern States 
where the rate 9.4 was 6 percent above 1966. In 
the Western States the rate of 4.9 was 14 percent 
over 1966 and the North Central States with a 
rate of 4.9 was up 11 percent. Tlie rate of 4.1 in 
the Northeastern States was 14 percent higher 
than the 1966 rate of 3.6. 

Nature of Murder 

Through the use of a supplemental report, de- 
tails are collected on mm-ders 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 1967, the murder victims were 3 to 1 male, 
the same ratio as in 1966. Nationwide, the ratio 
of arrests for murder was more than 5 males to 
1 female. Forty-five of every 100 victims were 
white and 54 were Negro. The remaining 1 per- 
cent was distributed among Indian, Chinese, 
Japanese and other races. By age, it is determined 
that 6 of every 10 murder victims were between 
20 and 45 years of age with tlie largest number, 
27 percent, falling in the 20 to 29 age group. 

Firearms continue to be the [predominant 
weapon used in murder, as illustrated in the 
accompanying chart, with over 63 percent of the 
1967 criminal homicides resultmg from the use 
of a firearm. This is an increase of 17 percent in 
the use of guns over 1966. Cutting or stabbing 
weajjons were used in 20 percent of the murders, 
other weapons, including blunt objects such as 
hammers and clubs, poison, arson, explosives, 
drowning, etc., in 8 percent, and in the remaining 
9 percent of the murders, personal weapons such 
as hands, fists and feet were used. Firearms were 
the most predominant miu-der weapons in the 
Southern States, used in over 7 of every 10 homi- 
cides. Cuttings or stabbings were the highest in

the Northeastern States in over 3 out of each 10 
slayings, while bhint objects or other dangerous 
weajjons were used more often in the Western 
States than in any other geographic region. The 
use of personal weapons resulting in strangula- 
tion, etc., was highest in the Northeastern States 
and lowest in the Southern States. Since 1964 
murder with the use of a firearm has risen 47 
percent, a cutting or stabbing instrument 7 per- 
cent, a club or other blunt object 13 ])ercent, and 
personal weapons 10 percent. Table 22 sets forth 
the percentage of murder by the use of firearms 
by state for the years 1962-1967. 

As pointed out in prior issues of this publica- 
tion, police are powerless to prevent a large 
number of these crimes, which is made readily 
ai)parent from the circumstances or motives which 
surround criminal homicide. The significant fact 
emerges that most murders are committed by 
relatives of the victim or persons acquainted with 
the victim. It follows, therefore, based on these 
facts, that criminal homicide is, to a major extent, 
a social problem beyond police prevention. In 
1967, killings within the family made up over 28 
l^ercent of all murders. Over one-half of these 
involved sjiouse killing spouse and the remainder 
involved other family killings. 

In this Program felony murder is defined as 
those killings resulting from robberies, se.\ mo- 
tives, gangland slayings, and other felonious 
activities. These known and suspected felonious 
killings resulted in 22 percent of the total number 
of murders in 1967. The above table demon- 
strates by geograjjhic region the percentage of 
murder by type of circumstance in 1967.

Almost 3 of every 10 criminal homicides in the 
United States were within the family unit in 1967. 
In addition, about 1 of every 10 was the result of 
romantic triangles or lovers' quarrels. More than 
4 of every 10 were the direct residt of arguments 
outside the family unit and not involving the 
romantic triangle situations. It is known that the 
persons participating in these arguments were 
most frequently acquainted prior to the fatal act. 

In situations involving husband and wife, the 
wife was the victim in 55 percent of the cases and 
the husband in 45 percent. In these incidents 
almost 47 percent of the victims were white, 52 
percent were Negro and 1 percent other races. 

In lovers' quarrels, the female was the victim 
in 55 percent of the incidents but when a third 
party entered the scene to complete a romantic 
triangle, a male was the victim in over 9 out of 
every 10 episodes. 

The victims of felony-type murders were 69 
percent white, 30 percent Negro, and 1 percent 
other race or race not stated. 

Clearances 

Nationally, police continue to be most success- 
ful in clearing or solving by arrest a higher per- 
centage of the murder cases than any other Crime 
Index offense. In 1967, 8S ])ercent of the criminal 
homicides were solved, a slight decrease from 1966. 
Tliis is the second straight year in wliich the 
[lercentage of solutions of murders have fallen, 
when it is recalled that in 1965 over 90 percent of 
all murders were cleared by arrest. In 1967, 
persons under IS years of age were involved in 5 
percent of the willful killings solved by police. 

Penons Arrested 

Based on reports submitted by law enforce- 
ment 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 long-term arrest trends for murder, 
1960-1967, where a 56 percent increase occurred. 
Tiie increase in adidt arrests for murder during 
this same period was 39 percent. Numerically, 
the 20 to 24 year age group had the heaviest 
involvement during 1967 with 20 percent of the 
total arrests coming from within this age group. 
Kegroes made up 59 percent of the arrests for 
murder in 1967 and 54 percent of the victims 
of homicide were also Negroes. There was a 6 
percent increase in the number of arrests of 
females for murder in 1967 as compared with 
1966 and a 15 percent increase in females under 
18 years of age arrested for this offense. 

Persom Charged 

Police reports disclose that of all persons ar- 
rested for having been involved in murder, 65 
percent were formally charged by police. This is 
down from the 68 percent who were formally 
charged in 1966. Of those charged, 8 percent were 
young persons whose cases were referred to 
juvenile court jurisdiction. This compares with 
the 7 percent of juveniles who were referred to 
juvenile court jurisdiction in 1966. Insofar as 
adults were concerned, of those charged with 
murder, 47 percent were found guilty as charged, 
18 percent entered pleas or were convicted on a 
lesser charge and 34 percent were released by 
acquittal or dismissal of charges against them. 

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT 

Aggravated assault is defined as an unlawful 
attack by one ])erson 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 an 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. 



Vol 



ume 



In calendar year 1967, there was an estimated 
total of 253,300 aggravated assaults. Aggravated 



assaults increased by over 21,000 offenses in 1967 
over 1966. This violent crime against the person 
made up almost 7 percent of the Crime Inde.x 
offenses in 1967 and comprised 51 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. As has been the experience in prior years, 
the warm summer months recorded the high 
frequencies during 1967. (See Chart 10.) 

Trend 

In 1967, aggravated assault increased 9 percent 
over 1966 and since 1960 has risen 67 percent. 
Cities 250,000 and above had a 9 percent in- 
crease in trend with the suburban areas i p 10 
percent and rural areas up 6 percent. The North 
Central States reported an upward trend of 13 
percent while the Western States increased 11 
percent. The Northeastern and Southern States 
each recorded an increase of 8 percent. 

Aggravated Assault Rate 

For each 100,000 persons in the United States 
during 1967, there were 128 victims of an ag- 
gravated assault. Large core cities 250,000 and 
over in population recorded a rate of 257 per 
100,000 while the suburban and rural rates were 
79. Overall, the aggravated assaidt rate in- 
creased 8 percent over 1966, and since 1960 the 
victim risk rate has risen 51 percent. (See Chart 6.) 
All geographic regions recorded increases in 
aggravated assault during 1967. The Southern 
States were again highest with a rate of 163 while 
the Western States reported a rate of 138. The 
Northeastern and North Central States noted 
rates of 105 and 102 per 100,000 inhabitants. 
The victim risk rate was up 13 percent in large 
core cities wiiile the suburban area rate was up 
10 percent and the rural areas 6 percent. 

Nature of Aggravated Assault 

Most aggravated assaults occur within the 
family unit or among neighbors or acquaintances. 
The victim and offender relationship, as well as 
the very nature of the attack, makes this crime 
similar to murder. In 1967, almost 21 percent of the 
serious assaults were committed with the use of a

used in 33 percent of the assaults, 22 i)ercent were 
committed witli blunt objects or other dangerous 
weapons, and 24 percent with jiersonal weapons, 
such as hands, fists and feet. The collection of 
crime counts in this oflPense category was broken 
down into the above subclassifications com- 
mencing in 1964 in order to further define the 



nature of these serious assaults. During the 
four-year period, 1964-1967, assaults with fire- 
arms were up 76 percent, assaults with a knife 
or other cutting instrument rose 4 percent, those 
where blunt objects or other dangerous weapons 
were used increased 23 percent and the crimes 
where personal weai)ons were employed recorded 
a 38 percent rise. The table which follows demon-

Clearances 

Performance, as measured by solutions, in- 
dicates American law enforcement agencies were 
successful in solving 69 of each 100 cases in 1967. 
This relatively high solution ratio follows that 
of the other crimes against the person; nonetheless, 
solutions decreased 4 percent from the overall 72 
percent solution ratio in 1966. Persons under 18 
years of age were identified in 9 percent of these 
clearances. Due to the nature of these crimes, ar- 
rests are freijuently made upon the response of 
patrol units. This type of patrol call is hazardous 
to the officers. Since 1960, 86 officers have lost 
their lives in responding to disturbance-type 
calls, which fre(|uently involved family arguments 

Persons Arrested 

Arrests for aggravated assault increased 2 
percent in 1967 over 1966, while arrests of persons 
under 18 increased 6 percent nationwide. During 
the jieriod 1960-1967 arrests of young persons 
under 18 for aggravated assault have increased 121 
percent, and arrests for adults during this same 
period rose 47 i)ercent. As a group, persons over 
21 years of age accounted for 70 percent of the 
arrests for aggravated assault in 1967 and persons 
under 21, 30 percent. Arrests for males outnum- 
bered females by almost 7 to 1. Nearly one-half 
of all persons arrested for this offense in 1967 
were Negro; however, prior victimization surveys 
have indicated the Negro is also primarily the 
victim in crimes against the person. 

Persons Charged 

Law enforcement agencies have difficulty in 
obtaining convictions based on original charge in 
the aggravated assault category. The close family 



or other relationshi]) whicli e.xists between victims 
and assailants in this category accounts for tlie 
victim's frequent unwillingness to cooperate or 
testify for the prosecution. Accpiittals and dis- 
missals, therefore, run liigh, almost 4 out of 
each 10 cases. Police charged 76 out of every 100 
persons arrested for aggravated assault in 1967 
and 48 percent of the adults charged for this 
offense were convicted on this charge. Sixteen 
percent were convicted on a lesser ciiarge wliile 17 
percent of the persons diarged were referred to 
juvenile court jurisdiction. 

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 

During 1967, there was an estimated total of 
27,100 forcible rapes. Numerically, the volume 
increased by 1,770 offenses over 1966. Percent- 
agewise, forcible rape made up less than 1 percent 
of the Crime Index total and a little over 5 per- 
cent of the crimes of violence in 1967. The greatest 
volume was recorded in the Southern States with 
29 percent of the total, while the North Central 
States recorded 27 percent, followed by the West- 
ern and Northeastern States which reported 25 
and 19 percent, respectively. This percentage 
distribution by geograjjliic region was similar to 
that experienced in calendar year 1966. 

A comparison of the month-to-month varia- 
tions for forcible rape in 1967 with the long-term 
seasonally adjusted trend followed the pattern 
set for many years. Chart number 10 demonstrates 
the month-to-month variations of forcible rape 
during 1967, as well as a comparison with the 
prior five-year experience. 

Trend 

In calendar year 1967, the volume of forcible 
rape increased 7 percent over 1966. The long-term 
trend in this offense indicates tliat since 1960, the 
number of these crimes has risen 61 percent. This 
crime is committed most often in the big cities 
with 250,000 or more inhabitants. In 1967, this 
group of cities registered an upward trend of 12

percent, while the voUime increased by 7 percent 
in the suburban areas. A decrease of 1 percent in 
forcible rape was noted in the rural areas. Geo- 
gra])hically, an overall increase was noted in all 
regions with the Southern States up 9 percent and 
the Western and North Central States each up 7 
percent, w liile the Northeastern States reported a 
4 percent rise. 

Forcible Rape Rate 

A crime rate equates the number of crhues per 
unit of population, and in its proper perspective, 

12 



is a victim risk rate. In 1967, 27 out of every 
100,000 women were known forcible rape victims. 
Since 1960, the forcible rape crime rate has in- 
creased 46 percent. In calendar year 1967, the 
forcible rape rate increased by 6 percent over 1966. 
Tiie large core cities recorded a victim risk rate 
of 54 per 100,000 females, while the suburban area 
rate was 21 and the rural area 18. Again, as 
experienced in 1966, females residing in the 
Western States during 1967 were most often the 
victims of forcible rape. In these States, the 
forcible rape rate was 39 per 100,000 females. 



The Nurth C'cntrnl States recorded n rate of 26, 
followed by the Soutliern and Nortiieastern States 
with rates of 25 and 21 per 100,000 females. 

Nature of Offenses 

In 1967, two-thirds of all offenses reported in this 
crime class were actual rapes by force wliile the 
remainder \\-ere attemjits or assaults to rape. A 
violent crime against the person, this offense oc- 
curs most often out of reach of police patrols. Of 
all the Oime Index offenses, law enforcement 
administrators recognize that this offense is prob- 
ably tiie most under-reported crime by victims to 
l)olice due primarily to fear and/or embarrassment 
on the part of many victims. As a national average, 
18 ])ercent of all forcible rapes reported to police 
were determined by police investigation to be un- 
founded. In other words, the police established that 
no offense actually did take place. This is caused 
primarily due to the question of the use of force 
frequently comijlicated by a prior relationship 
between \-ictim and offender. Crime counts in this 
publication, however, are limited to actual offenses 
established by police investigation. 

Clearances 

In 1967, 61 percent of all forcible rapes were 
solved by arrest of the offender. This rejiresents a 
decrease of 2 percent in solutions when compared 
to 1966 and is the second straight year in which 
solutions of this crime had decreased. Although 
rape is primarily a young adult crune, 14 percent 
of the cases which were solved involved persons 
under the age of 18. 

Persons Arrested 

Males in the 17 to 19 year age group again 
constituted the greatest concentration of arrests 
for forcible rape in 1967. Total arrests for this 
offense increased 3 percent, with arrests of persons 
under 18 years of age up 7 percent in 1967 over 
1966. Sixty-four percent of the arrests for forcible 
rape during the year were of persons under the 
age of 25. About 47 percent of the persons arrested 
were Negroes, 51 percent whites, and all other 
races comprised tlie remainder. Prior victimization 
surveys have indicated that the Negro is also 
primarily the victim in crimes agamst the person. 

Persons Charged 

Of all persons arrested for forcible rape in 1967, 
74 percent were formally charged by police. 
Thirty-seven percent of the adults charged with 



forcible rape were found guilty of the substantive 
offense. An additional 18 percent of the adults 
charged were convicted of a lesser offense. Pro- 
secutive problems accounted for acquittals and/or 
dismissals in 44 percent of the cases, up from 42 
percent in 1966. Juvenile referrals amounted to 
21 percent of the forcible rape charges in 1967. 

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 fre- 
(juently results in injiuy 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 1967, there were an esti- 
mated 202,050 robberies committed in the United 
States, a significant increase over the 157,320 
offenses which occurred in this classification in 
1966. This offense makes up over 5 percent of the 
total Crime Index and comprises appro.ximately 
41 percent of the crimes of violence. In 1967, these 
offenses occurred most frequently during the 
period October through December. 

Geographically, the heaviest volume of robbery 
again occurred in the North Central States, 
which recorded 31 percent of the total in 1967. 
The percentage distribution in the other geo- 
graphic regions showed the Northeastern States 
had 28 percent, the Southern States 23 percent 
and the Western States 18 percent. 

Trend 

As in 1966, robbery once again led all other 
Crime Index offenses in the percentage increase 
in volume with a 27 percent rise and since 1960 
this violent crime has increased 88 percent in the 
United States. Robbery, like the other crimes 
of violence, is primarily a big city problem. 
Large core cities with over 250,000 population 
witnessed a 28 percent rise in the volume of rob- 
bery. Suburban areas surrounding the large core 
cities also recorded a 28 percent increase, while 
the rural areas witnessed a 9 percent upswing.

While robbery increased in rural areas, the more 
significant increases occurred in the large cities 
and the suburban areas. 

There were substantial increases in robbery in 
each geographic region. Tlie Southern States had 
the sharpest increase with a 34 percent upswing, 
while the Northeastern States were up 30 percent, 
the Western States 28 percent and the North 
Central States 23 percent. 

The accompanying chart depicts the long-term 
trend in robbery and robbery rate, 1960-1967. 

Robbery Rofe 

The 1967 robberj' rate was 27 percent higher 
than 1966, with 102 victims per 100,000 popula- 
tion and 70 percent above the 1960 rate. Robbery 
is a big city crime. The 56 large core American 
cities with over 250,000 population accounted for 
7 1 percent of all robberies. 

Cities with over 250,000 inhabitants had a 
robbery rate of 330 ^nctims per 100,000 popida- 
tion. There were 38 robbery victims per 100,000 
in the suburban areas, up 24 percent over the 
preceding year, and 1 1 victims in the rural sections 
of the country. Robbery rates in the larger cities 
were almost 9 times as great as they were in the 
suburban areas, again illustrating the fact that 
robbery rates tend to increase in proportion to 
density of population. On a geographic basis, this 
crime occurred most frequently in relation to 
population in the Northeastern States where the 
rate was 117, 29 percent higher than 1966. The 
North Central States followed with a rate of 116 
which was a 22 percent increase, the Western 
States 109, a 27 percent rise, and the Southern 
States 75, a 33 percent increase. 

Nature of Robbery 

Supplemental information is obtained from 
cities with popidations of 25,000 or more as to 
robbery by type as a part of the monthly collection 
of statistical data under this Program. In 1967, 
these figures disclosed that 54 percent of the 
robberies were committed in the street. Bank 
robbery witnessed a significant 45 percent increase 
in 1967, with the average bank robbery dollar 
loss in excess of $5,000.

The long-term trends in robbery by type, as 
illustrated by the following charts, show bank 
robbery has had a sharp increase of 278 percent 
since 1960. During this same period, 1960-1967, 
gas or service station holdups have risen 123 
percent, chain store robberies 156 percent, robber- 
ies in residences 64 percent, and holdups of other 
commercial or business establishments 60 percent. 

Armed perpetrators were responsible for com- 
mitting 58 percent of the robbery offenses during 
1967, while the remaining 42 percent were mug- 
gings, yokings, or other violent confrontations 
where personal weapons were used to subdue or 
overcome the victim. Since 1964 armed robbery 
has increased 58 percent and unarmed robbery 
53 percent. 

During 1967, a special survey was conducted to 
determine the types of weapons used in armed 
robbery. The results of this survey indicate that 
63 percent of all armed robbery is committed with 
a firearm, 24 percent with a knife or other cutting 
instrument and 13 percent with blunt objects such 
as clubs, etc. In 1967 there were over 73,000 
robberies with the use of a firearm. 

It shoiJd be remembered that the fidl impact 
of this violent crime on the victims cannot be 
measured fully in terms of dollar loss. While the 
object of the attack is money and personal objects, 
many victims of the mugger and the strong-arm 
robber, as well as the armed robber, suffer serious 
personal injury as a result of the attack. During 
the last calendar year, the average value loss to 
the victims of robbery was $261 for a total loss 
of approximately $53 million.

by arrest involved adults. Fourteen jiercent of the 
armed robberies and 34 ])ercent of the strong-arm 
type which were cleared, involved arrests of per- 
sons under 18 years of age. 

Persons Arrested 

Nationally, arrests for robbery increased 19 
percent in 1967 when compared to 1966. Arrests 
in cities wliere volume is the heaviest were up IS 
percent, in the suburban areas up 22 percent and 
in the rural sections of the country a 16 percent 
rise was noted. 

Arrest data discloses that 73 percent of the 
persons arrested for this crime were under 25 years 
of age and 54 percent were under 21 years of age. 
Nationally, 32 percent of the persons arrested 
for robbery were under 18. This greater propor- 
tion of j'oung age arrests compared 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 20 percent in 1967 over 1966. In the 
suburban areas, young persons made up 22 percent 
of the robbery arrests and in the rural areas 15 
percent. Again in 1967, 5 of every 100 persons 
arrested for robbery were females; however 
arrests of women for this offense rose 25 percent 
in 1967 when related to 1966. 

From the standpoint of race, 61 percent of 
those arrested were Negroes, 38 percent were 
white and all other races made up the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

In 1967, police formally charged 67 percent of 
all persons arrested for robbery. Sixty-three 
percent of the persons charged with these crimes 
were adults and 37 percent were juveniles whose 
cases were referred to juvenile court jurisdiction. 
It is interesting to note that in 1966, 67 percent 
of the persons charged were adidts and 33 percent 
were juveniles. Of the adults charged in 1967, 49 
percent were convicted of robbery, 17 percent 
were convicted on a charge less than robbery and 
34 percent were acquitted or their cases were 
dismissed. 

BURGLARY 

Under this Progi-am, burglarj' is defined as the 
unlawful entry of a structiu'e 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, unlawful entry where 
no force is used, and attempted forcible entry. 

Volvme 

In 1967, there was an estimated total of 
1,605,700 burglaries. Volumewise, there was an 
increase of 218,500 offenses over 1966. In 1967 
the large cities over 250,000 popiUation accounted 
for 40 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 27 percent 
of the total volume, the Northeastern States 25 
percent and the Western and the North Central 
States 24 percent each. 

Highs were recorded during the last half of 
1967, with the peak month being December. 

Trend 

Since 1960, burglary nationally has increased 
79 percent. In 1967, burglary rose by 16 percent 
over 1966. Big cities over 250,000 and suburban 
areas were up 16 percent. The rural areas were up 
15 percent. By region, the North Central States, 
as a group registered the largest overall gain, 
up 19 percent. The Western, Northeastern, and 
Southern States were each up 15 percent. 

Burglary Rate 

The long term rise in the burglary rate, 1960- 
1967 was 62 percent. A sharp rise occurred in 
1967, up 15 percent over 1966. Again the crime 
rate equates the number of offenses per 100,000 
population and this continuing upward trend in- 
dicates the increasing number of victims of bur- 
glary both residential and nonresidential. The 
Western States recorded the highest burglary rate 
in 1967 with 1,188 offenses per 100,000 popula- 
tion, followed by the Northeastern States 833, 
the Southern States 706, and the North Central 
States 685. Cities over 250,000 population re- 
ported a rate of 1,474 per 100,000 population while 
the suburban and rural areas showed rates of 679 
and 349 respectively. 

Nature of Burglary 

This crime is one of stealth and opportunity 
committed by amatevu-s and professionals alike. 
In 1967, 78 percent of the burglaries involved 
forcible entry, while 15 percent were unlawful 
entry without force and 7 percent were attempts. 
Residence burglary accounted for 49 percent of 
the total while nom-esidential amounted to 51 per-

cent in 1967. Daytime burglaries of residences rose 
by 20 percent in 1967, and accounted for almost 
half of these offenses. Since 1960, there has been 
an increase of 187 percent in daytime residence 
burglaries. Unattended apartments and homes 
during daytime hovirs are easy prey for the bur- 
glar. Daytime burglaries of nonresidences rose 28 



percent in 1967 but accounted for only 5 percent 
of the total. 

As a group, residential and nonresidential night- 
time burglary represented 71 percent of the total 
volume. Suppression and detection are partic- 
ularly difficult due to the tremendous volume of 
these offenses and the thinness of police patrols.

In 1967, property owners sufTered an economic 
loss of over $438 million, with an average dollar 
loss of $273 per burglary. 

Clearances 

Solutions were accounted for in 1 out of every 5 
cases of burglary in 1967. This low clearance rate 
indicates the lack of a deterrent and little risk of 
detection. 

Burglary solutions dropped 8 percent in 1967. 
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 con- 
sistent in all popidation groups. Law enforcement 
agencies in cities 250,000 and above cleared up 
20 percent in 1967. In the subiu-ban areas where 
manpower shortages are most acute and where 
the burglary rate is rising the fastest, 19 percent 
were solved while 23 percent were cleared in the 
rural areas. 

Persons Arrested 

In 1967, total arrests for biu-glary increased 12 
percent. Arrests of persons under 18 years of age 
increased 11 percent and arrests of persons 18 
years and over increased 13 percent. Burglary 
arrests increased by 12 percent in the city, 13 
percent in suburban areas and 7 percent in rural 
areas in 1967. An analysis of the eight-year period, 
1960-1967, reflected a 28 percent increase in 
burglary arrests. Arrests of individuals under the 
age of 15 increased 43 percent and those under the 
age of 18 years 41 percent, while arrests of adult 
burglary offenders increased 17 percent. 

Nationally, persons under 25 accounted for 82 
percent of all arrests for burglary in 1967. Of the 
total, young persons under 18 accounted for 54 
percent of all police arrests for this crime. Of all 
arrests for this oflfense, females were involved in 4 
of every 100. Arrests of whites outnumbered 
Negroes by more than 2 to 1. 

Persons Charged 

Nationally, in 1967, police placed formal charges 
against 7 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, 54 percent were found 
guilty as charged, 17 percent were convicted of a 
lesser charge, and 29 percent were freed tlirough 
acquittal or dismissal of charges. 



LARCENY-THEFT 

Larceny-theft is the unlawful taking or stealing 
of property or articles of value without the use of 
force or violence or fraud. It includes crimes such 
as shoplifting, 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 
wortliless checks. Auto theft, of course, is excluded 
from this category for crime reporting purposes 
inasmuch as it is a separate Crime Index ofifense. 

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



Vol 



ume 



Larceny is the second most voluminous Index 
crime, exceeded only by burglary. In 1967 there 
were 1,047,100 offenses of larceny $50 and over, 
up from 894,600 in 1966. 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. Larceny has a tendency to reach a peak in 
August and there was, in addition, a general up- 
swing toward the end of 1967, similar to the ex- 
perience of the two 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 1967, the Index offense of larceny $50 and 
over recorded a 17 percent increase over 1966 
and this crime has increased 107 percent in vol- 
ume since 1960. In 1967, substantial increases 
were noted in all population groups with cities 
over 250,000 population up 17 percent. The subur- 
ban area increased 15 percent and the rural areas 
registered a 10 percent upward trend. 

Geographically, larceny increased 20 percent in 
the North Central States and 18 percent in the 
Western States, 16 percent in the Northeastern 
States and 15 percent in the Southern States. 

Larceny Rate 

During 1967 the larceny crime rate rose to 529 
offenses per 100,000 population, a sharp 16 per-

cent jump over the rate in 1966 and an 87 percent 
rise over 1960. This rate rise was reflected in all 
population groups and in all geographic regions. 
In 1967, the large core cities registered a victim 
risk rate in this offense of 913 per 100,000 popu- 
lation. The suburban larceny rate was 460, and 
the rural rate was 195. Viewed geographically, 
tlie Western States reported the highest larceny 
rate with 801 offenses per 100,000 population 
which was 16 percent above 1966. The North- 
eastern States had a rate of 562, up 15 percent, 
the Southern States 434, up 14 percent, and the 
North Central States 443, an increase of 19 per- 
cent in the rate. 

Nature of Larceny -theft 

The average value of property stolen in each 
larceny in 1967 was $95, up from $74 in 1960. 
This average value includes losses from the vol- 
uminous thefts under $50 in value, of which there 
were 2,032,000 in 1967. When average value is 
applied to the estimated crimes in this category, 
the dollar loss to victims is in excess of 
$292,000,000. 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 materially reduce the overall victim loss. In 
addition, of course, many offenses in this cate- 
gory, particularly where the value of the stolen 
goods is small, never come to police attention. 

vSince dollar valuation of property stolen in 
thefts determines whether or not a theft becomes 
a Crime Index offense, economic conditions are a 
factor. The rising cost of living with its upward 
influence on price, coupled with increased de- 
mand for more expensive commodities, present 
greater criminal opportunity and also exert some 
unreal effect on the larceny $50 and over trend. 
For example, the Consumer Price Index has risen 
13 percent since 1960. Likewise, the average value 
of property stolen in larceny has increased 28 
percent 1960 to 1967. However, during the same 
period, the volume of thefts $50 and over has climb- 
ed 107 percent. 

The average value of goods and property 
reported stolen by victims of pickpockets was 
$90, by purse-snatchers $50, by shoplifters $28, by 
thefts from autos $136 and by miscellaneous 
thefts from buihiings $166. 

From one year to another, the distribution of 
larceny as to tjT^e of theft remains relatively 



constant. As in prior years, a major portion of 
these thefts, 40 percent, represented thefts of 
auto parts and accessories and other thefts from 
automobiles. Other major types of thefts which 
contributed to the large number of these crimes 
were thefts from buildings, 17 percent and stolen 
bicycles, 16 percent. 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-snatch- 
ing, shoplifting and thefts from coin-operated 
machines. 

The following table presents distribution of 
larceny by type in large cities, suburban and 
rural areas. Cities and suburban areas appear to 
have similar characteristics except for pocket- 
picking and purse-snatching which are con- 
siderably less in the suburban or residential areas. 
This, of course, is to be expected as these theft 
opportunities flourish where population is highly 
concentrated. It is interesting to note that figures 
for shoplifting are quite similar in the city and 
suburban areas while there is a decided drop in 
the rural area. The shopping center which is still 
largely absent in rural areas certainly has its 
effect on these figures. Thefts from autos make up 
19 percent of larceny in large cities but only 
12 percent in small cities and counties. Theft of 
automobile accessories in the city and suburban 
areas are about equal while there is a decided 
drop in these type thefts in the rural area. Again, 
the large concentration of population and ve- 
hicles as well as the accessibility of vehicles in the

Clearances 

The nature of larceny, a crime of opportunity, 
sneak thievery and petty unobserved thefts, 
makes it an extremely difficult one for law en- 
enforcement officers to solve. A lack of witnesses 
and the tremendous volume of these crimes work 
in the thief's favor. In 1967, 18 percent of the 
larceny offenses brought to police attention were 
cleared by arrest. Involvement of the young age 
group is demonstrated by the fact that 44 percent 
of these crimes which were cleared in the Nation's 
cities were solved by arrests of persons vmder 18 
years of age. Juvenile clearance figures for subur- 
ban areas and rural areas were 45 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 19 percent 
in the cities of 100,000 to 250,000 inhabitants and 
in the rural areas. Nationally, however, larceny 
solutions declined 3 percent when compared to 
1966. 

Persons Arrested 

Forty-five percent of the total arrests for serious 
crimes in 1967 were for larceny. Arrests for this 
crime were up 7 percent, 1967 over 1966. Volume- 
wise, 55 percent of these arrests were of persons 
under 18 years of age and when individuals under 
21 were considered, the ratio jumped to over two- 
thirds. When examined by sex of arrested persons, 
it was determined that females comprise 24 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 were arrested more 
often for larceny than any other offense except 
drunkenness. 

Arrests of females rose by 12 percent in 1967 
while arrests of males rose by 5 percent. Arrests of 
whites outnumbered Negroes by over 2 to 1 with 
all other races comprising about 2 percent of the 
arrests for larceny-theft. During the period 1960- 
1967, arrests for larceny increased 51 percent. It 
is significant to note that arrests of individuals 
luider the age of 15 increased by 72 percent and 
under the age of 18 by 66 percent while arrests of 
adults increased 36 percent. 

Persons Charged 

Police charged more than twice as many 
offenders for larceny-theft than for any other 
serious offense. Of those arrested for larceny-theft, 
76 percent were formally charged and held for 



prosecutive action, and almost one-half, 45 per- 
cent, of those so charged were juveniles. Adults 
were found guUty as charged in 70 percent of the 
cases, guilty of a lesser charge in 5 percent, and 
had their cases dismissed or were acquitted in 
25 percent. 

AUTO THEFT 

In Uniform Crime Reporting, 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 1967, an estimated 654,900 motor vehicles 
were reported stolen compared to thefts of 557,000 
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 30 percent of the total number of these 
crimes. Next in order were the North Central 
States 27 percent, the Southern States 22 percent, 
and the Western States 21 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 1967 was no exception in this respect with 
October the high volume month. 

Trend 

Auto thefts in 1967 increased 18 percent in 
volume when compared with 1966. Since 1960, 
this crime has risen steadily recording a 101 per- 
cent increase over the 8-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 i)opulation, 15 to 24 years. 

Auto theft increases in all areas contributed to 
the overall 18 percent rise in 1967. On the average, 
large cities with 250,000 or more population had 
an 18 percent upward trend, the suburban areas 
registered a 19 percent upswing, and the rural areas 
were up 5 percent in these crimes during 1967. 

Geographically, the theft of autos showed the 
sharpest upward trend in the Northeastern States 
with a 25 percent increase followed by the North

Central States up 17 percent. The Southern States 
were up 15 percent, and the Western States had 
an 1 1 percent rise. The preceeding chart shows the 
increase in auto thefts since 1960. 

Auto Theft Rate 

In auto theft, as in other Crime Index offenses, 
there was a substantial increase in the rate in 1967 
over 1966. From 284 victims per 100,000 popula- 
tion in the earlier year, the rate rose to 331 in 
1967, a jump of 16 percent. The auto theft rate 
has risen 82 percent since 1960. There were more 
persons unlawfully deprived of their motor vehi- 
cles, 901 per 100,000 population, in the cities with 
500,000 to one million inhabitants than in any 
other popidation group. In this regard, as a part 
of a special study it was found that 30 percent of 
the autos stolen in the District of Columbia were 
owned by nonresident victims. This is undoubtedly 
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 776. In the suburbs the rate was 205, 
and in the rural areas the auto theft rate was 68. 

The auto theft rates by geographic region dis- 
closed the Western States were high with 418. The 
Northeastern States reported a rate of 400, the 
North Central States 322, and the Southern 
States 239 thefts per 100,000 inhabitants. 

Nationally, in 1967 one of every 123 registered 
autos was stolen or a rate of 8.1 per 1,000 regis- 
tered autos. Regionally, the highest registration 
theft rate appeared in the Northeastern States 
where 11.0 cars per 1,000 registered vehicles were 
stolen. In the 3 other regions the figures were 9.0 
in the Western States, 7.6 in the North Central 
States, and 6.0 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 heavUy populated 
sections of the Nation. In 1967, the average value 
of stolen automobiles was $1,017 at the time of 
theft and although police recovered 86 percent of 
the stolen vehicles, the remaining unrecovered 14 
percent represented a loss of over $93,000,000 to 
the victims. This loss figure does not take into 
consideration the monetary loss resulting from 
damage 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 

28 



crime of opportunity. The youthful offender who 
is most often involved finds the vehicle subject to 
theft conveniently ready to drive away or the 
ignition easily compromised. 

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 20 percent of these 
thefts by arrest of the offender. The crimes occur 
under cover of darkness and there are seldom 
any witnesses. On the other hand, police nationally 
are successful in recovering about 86 percent of all 
stolen cars. About 55 percent of stolen vehicles 
are taken and recovered within 48 hours. Al- 
though 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 transporta- 
tion or the purpose of the theft is unknown. The 
remainder were taken for resale, stripping for 
parts, or use in another crime. 

In the Nation's largest cities 19 percent of the 
auto thefts were cleared during 1967. Police in 
the suburban areas were somewhat more success- 
ful having cleared 24 percent. Throughout the 
country auto theft clearance percentages ranged 
from 16 percent in the Middle Atlantic States to 
25 percent in the Mountain States. 

In all geographic divisions and population 
groups the participation of the young age group 
population is indicated by the high proportion of 
these clearances which were by arrests of persons 
under 18 years of age. In the large core cities, 
54 percent were solved by an arrest in this age 
group while juvenile clearances accounted for 
43 percent in the suburbs and 42 percent in the 
rural areas. 

Persons Arrested 

Persons arrested for auto theft come principally 
from the young age group population. In 1967, 62 
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 persons 
imder 21 are included in the computations, 80 
percent of the arrests for auto theft are accounted 
for. Of all Crime Index offenses, auto theft had, 
by far, the largest proportion of arrests of persons 
under 18. 



The national trend in anto tlieft arrests dis- 
closed a 5 percent increase in 1967 wlien conijiared 
to 1966. Adult arrests rose 8 percent while arrests 
of persons under IS increased 4 percent. (Con- 
sidering: the eight year period, 19t)0 19G7, auto 
ilicft arrests uicreased 53 percent. Arrests of 
individuals under the age of 15 increased 61 
l>ercent and individuals under the age of IS 
increased 54 percent during this period. 



The long-term arrest trend for adults disclosed a 
51 percent increase in arrests for auto theft, 1960 
through 1967. 

Next to burglary, auto theft as measured by 
arrests showed the least participation by females. 
Only 4 percent of persons arrested in 1967 were 
female and female arrests for auto theft increased 
11 percent. Females under 15 recorded a 19 percent 
increase in arrests for auto theft. Whites made up

67 percent of the arrests for auto theft, Negroes 
31 percent and all other races the remaining 2 
percent. During the 1960's arrests for auto theft 
involving young Negroes have more than doubled. 

Persons Charged 

Again, the involvement of the young age group 
population is made clear through police reports 
showing 66 percent of all persons charged for auto 
theft in 1967 were referred to juvenile court 
jurisdiction. No other Crime Index offense results 
in such a high percentage of juvenile referrals. 
When the remaining adult offenders were con- 
sidered as a group, 55 percent of those prosecuted 
on charges of auto theft were found guilty as 
charged, 14 percent were convicted or plead 
guilty to a lesser charge and 31 percent were 
acqiutted 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 be- 
yond 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 1967 was a substantial 
8 percent below the clearance percentage in 1966. 
Whereas police nationally cleared 24.3 percent of 
these offenses in 1966, this dropped to 22.4 
percent in 1967. The decrease was noted in every 
Crime Index offense with auto theft solutions 
having the sharpest decline, down 11 percent, 
while robbery and burglary clearances declined 
8 percent each. Decreases in solutions were uni- 
versally reported by all population groups and by 
all geographic divisions. The highest overall 
Crime Index clearance rate regionally was re- 
corded by the North Central and Southern States 
24 percent, followed by the Western States 21 
percent and the Northeastern States 20 percent. 

Reports submitted by law enforcement agencies 
in 1967 disclosed police were successful in solving 
88 percent of tiie murder offenses, 61 percent of 
the reported forcible rapes, 69 percent of the ag- 



gravated assaults and 30 percent of the robberies. 
Solutions in the property crime categories showed 
police cleared 20 percent of the burglaries, 18 per- 
cent of the larceny-thefts and 20 percent of the 
auto thefts. Police are able to clear a higher per- 
centage 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 police 
attention and, more importantly, because wit- 
nesses are usually available who can identify the 
perpetrators. 

Offenses Cleared by Arrests of Juveniles 

It has been noted in several prior sections of 
this publication that persons under 18 years of 
age are becoming increasingly involved with poUce 
through commission of serious crimes. Persons 
10-17 years of age make up approximately 15 per- 
cent of the total United States population. One 
means of measuring the involvement of the young 
age group in crime is to identify the number of 
crimes in which they are the offenders. In 1967, 
33 percent of all Crime Index offenses solved in- 
volved persons under 18 years of age. It is signifi- 
cant to note, however, that while juvenile clear- 
ances remained unchanged from 1966, this is up 
from their 31 percent involvement in 1964. 
Arrests of juveniles resulted in clearing 33 percent 
of the suburban Crime Index offenses and 30 per- 
cent of those in the rural areas, unchanged from 
1966. 

There are a number of factors influencing the 
overall decline m the police solution rate. These 
include court decisions which have resulted in 
restrictions on police investigative and enforce- 
ment practices, sharply increasing police work- 
loads not limited to crime increases, an almost 
static ratio of police to population not com- 
mensurate with the sharp rise in crime, and con- 
stant increasing criminal mobilitJ^ Clearance 
tables are published beginning on page 104. 

PERSONS ARRESTED 

In 1967, arrests for all criminal acts, excluding 
traffic, increased 4 percent. Nationally, there were 
37 arrests for each 1,000 persons in the United 
States. In 1966, there were 36 arrests for each 
1,000 inhabitants. The arrest rate for big cities 
as a group was 51 per 1,000 [)()pulation, up 
from 49 in 1966, for suburban areas 24, up from 
23 in 1966, and for the rural areas 17, an increase 
from 14 in 1966. The total volume of city arrests

increased 4 percent, while the suburban volume 
increased 9 percent and the rural trend rose 5 
percent. 

Arrests are primarily a measure of police 
activity. Arrest practices, policies and emphasis 
will vary from place to place and within a com- 
munity from time to time. The volume of police 
arrests for certain unlawful conduct such as 
drunkenness, disorderly conduct, and certain 
local ordinances 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 poUce activity as it relates 
to crime. Arrests do, however, provide a useful 
uidex to measure involvement in crimmal 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 counted on each separate 
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 
certain types of offenses against public order 
such as drunkemiess, vagrancy, disorderly conduct 
and related violations. 

Arrest Trertds 

For the period 1960-1967, police arrests for all 
criminal acts, except traffic offenses, have risen 11 
I)ercent. During this same period, police arrests 
of persons under 18 years of age rose 69 percent 
while the number of persons in this young age 
group, 10-17, increased 22 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 then- percentage in- 
crease in the national population. 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. There was 
little change in the volume of adult arrests, 1960- 
1967. 

When only the serious crimes are used for trend 
])urposes during this eight-year period, it is noted 
arrests increased 45 percent. Arrests of juveniles for 
Crime Index type offenses rose 59 percent and adult 
arrests increased 34 percent. Arrests of juveniles 
for violent crimes doubled, 1960-1967, while 
arrests of persons under 18 for the property crimes 



rose 56 percent. Adult arrests for violent crimes 
for the same period were up 42 percent and for 
property crimes 31 percent. 

Age 

Nationally, persons under 15 years of age made 
up 10 percent of the total i)olice arrests; under 18, 
24 percent; and under 21, 37 percent. In the sub- 
urban areas, the involvement of the young age 
group in police arrests is considerably higher than 
the national figures witli tlie under 15 age group 
represented in 13 percent; under 18, 34 percent; 
and under 21, 48 percent. In the rural areas the 
distributions were lower for the younger age 
group, with the under 15 age group being in- 
volved in 5 percent of total pohce arrests; under 18 
in 21 percent, and those under 21 in 38 percent. 

In reviewing arrest figures, it is important to 
keep in mind that police arrest practices and 
emphasis vary which will account for some vari- 
ations in these statistics from year to year. It 
is noted arrests of persons under 18 for Narcotic 
Drug Law violations have increased sharply in 
recent years. In fact, nationally, almost half of the 
individuals arrested for violations of the Narcotic 
Drug Laws were persons under 21 years of age. 
Arrests for Narcotic Drug Law violations, 1967 
over 1966, were up 60 percent nationally. From 
1960 to 1967, arrests for this violation increased 
165 percent. There is set forth a tabulation by 
geographic region showing the type of narcotic 
drug involved in the arrest of the offender in 1967.

In 1967, male arrests outnumbered female 
arrests 7 to 1. Female arrests in 1967 rose by 7 
percent while male arrests increased 4 percent. 
Females were arrested in 14 percent of the serious 
or Crime Index type offenses. Then- involvement 
in these crimes was primarily for larceny which 
accounted for more than 1 of every 6 female 
arrests. Females accounted for 21 percent of the 
forgery, 23 percent of the fraud and 19 percent of 
the embezzlement arrests. 



32 



Long-term arrest trends, 1960-1967, reveal 
that arrests for young females under IS years 
of age rose 71 percent for auto theft and 76 
percent for burglary. While arrests of young 
males greatly outmimbered females during this 
same period, nonetheless the percentage increases 
in both these offenses were not so pronounced, 
up 53 percent for auto theft and 40 percent for 
burglary. 

When the serious crimes, as a group are con- 
sidered, arrests of males, 1960-1967, were up 38 
percent and female arrests more than doubled 
over this 8-year period. 

Traffic 

Supplemental data submitted by cities over 
25,000 population relating to traffic enforcement 
disclosed that nationwide, 54 percent of the cita- 
tions and summonses issued and arrests made in 
traffic matters were for parking violations. Hazard- 
ous traffic violations accounted for 35 percent, 
and other regulator^' violations 11 percent. In 
the Southern States 51 percent of the traffic 
arrests were for hazardous violations. In the 
Western States 47 percent of the arrests were for 
this type of infraction, in the North Central 
States 35 percent, and in the Northeastern States 
23 percent.

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 information 



is imi)ortant to the jiolice administrator in evalu- 
ating the quality of the police investigation and 
court presentation functions. 

In 1967, 75 percent of the persons arrested for 
Crime Index offenses were turned over to the 
courts. Of the adults charged with Crime Index 
offenses 61 percent were found guilty. 

It must be recognized that not all arrested per- 
sons are turned over to the courts for prosecution. 
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 jjreferring a formal charge or 
referring them to juvenile authorities. All con- 
tributors to this Program are urged to obtain and 
report final disposition in cases involving persons 
they arrest. Tables containing this data commence 
on page 109. Keep in mind that police methods 
of handling juvenile offenders differ widely. Also, 
the tables concerning juveniles (local age limit) 
refer to those who were arrested and turned over 
to juvenile authorities in connection with specific 
criminal acts. 

In 1967, 34 percent of the murder defendants 
were either acquitted or their cases were dis- 
missed at some prosecutive stage. Forty-four 
percent of those charged with forcible rape were 
acquitted or had their cases dismissed and 36 
percent of the persons charged with aggravated 
assault won their freedom tlarough acquittal or 
dismissal. 

Of the adults who were charged for Crime 
Index offenses, 10 percent were found guilty of 
a lesser crime and 29 percent were acquitted or 
their cases were dismissed. The highest per- 
centage of persons found guilty on the original 
charge in 1967 was in the larceny- theft category 
where 70 percent of the defendants were con- 
victed for theft. This was followed by 55 percent 
on the original charge for auto theft, 54 percent 
for burglary, 49 percent for robbery, 48 percent 
for aggravated assault, 47 percent for murder and 
37 percent for forcible rape. The offense which 
had the highest i)ercentage of a lesser charge 
was forcible rape where 18 percent of the de- 
fendants were convicted on some charge other 
than rape. This offense also had the highest 



33 



percentage of acquittals and dismissals with 44 
percent. 

In 47 percent of the cases in the Crime Index 
categories where formal charges were preferred, 
the offender was referred to juvenile court juris- 
diction. This referral percentage was down from 
49 percent in 1966. Again, as in 1966, juvenile 
referrals were highest for auto theft with 66 per- 
cent. Young persons were referred to juvenile court 
jurisdiction after being charged in 58 percent of 
the burglary cases, 45 percent of the larceny, 37 
percent of the robbery, 21 percent of the forcible 
rape, 17 percent of the aggravated assault, and 
8 percent of the criminal homicide. 

In 1967, similar to the 1966 experience, offenses 
of arson and vandalism recorded high percentages 
of juvenile referrals. When all crime categories 
are reviewed, it is noted that convictions on 
original charges remained high in the offenses 
against public 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 charges. 

CAREERS IN CRIME 

In January 1963, the FBI initiated a study of 
criminal careers. At the end of calendar year 
1967, 194,550 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 imi- 
formity in submissions made by all law enforce- 
ment agencies for all criminal charges, generally 
it is the practice to submit a cruninal fingerprint 
card on all arrests for serious crimes, felonies, 
and certain misdemeanors. Fingerprijiting by 
police is a i)art 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 
investigation. On the Federal level almost all 
])ersons 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 
submitted at the time of arrest. Of equal impor- 
tance is the disposition of each arrest which is also 
requested. FBI Identification Division finger- 
print files of known offenders iii this Program are 
"flashed" to provide an accurate means of follow- 
up concerning any future criminal involvement. 
As additional i:iformation is accumulated on 
these persons, it is added to the record which has 
been jireviously 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 vdola- 
tors. Specifically excluded from this study and 
resulting tabulations are chronic violators of the 
immigration laws and fingerprints submitted by 
the military. 

To gain insight into the career of criminal re- 
peaters, an analysis was made of the records of 
87,600 persons arrested in 1966 and 1967 for a 
Federal crime or rearrested locallj^ in these years 
after ha\ang been included in the Program pre- 
viously due to involvement in the Federal Crimi- 
nal Justice System subsequent to January 1, 
1963. 

Table A describes the distribution by age group 
of these persons arrested in 1966 and 1967. The 
emphasis upon the youthful offender is im- 
mediately ajjparent from the age distributions. 
It is noted that 48.2 percent of the persons in this 
group were in their twenties or younger. Signif- 
icantly over 70 percent of the offenders were 
first arrested under the age of 25.

Leniency in the form of probation, suspended 
-sentence, parole and conditional release iiad l)een 
afforded to 55 percent of tlie offenders. After tlie 
first lenienc}', this group averaged more than 5 
new arrests. For the ])ur]ioses of this study, 
probation, suspended sentence, parole and con- 
ditional release are referred to as "leniency." 
It goes without saying that probation and parole 
ai'e sjjecial forms of treatment of criminals, but 
since they represent a lesser punitive action than 
incarceration, tlie term leniency is used to jioint 
uj) tins clmracteristic. 

Of tlio offender records which were processed, 
71,731 were repeaters; that is they iiad a i)rior 
arrest on some charge. The average criminal ca- 
reer of the above repeaters amounted to more than 
ten years (span of years from first to last arrest). 
During the period of the criminal career this group 
averaged over 6 arrests, 3 convictions and 2 
imprisonments. Bear in mind that disposition data 
is ajjproximately 80 percent complete w ith regard 
to ])ersons committing felonies and slightly less 
complete for those involved in misdemeanors or 
minor offenses. 

From an analysis of the mobility of these 
repeaters a significant fact emerges — slightly 
more than 43 j)ercent of these individuals confined 
their criminal activity to one state and 57 jiercent 
were arrested in two or more states during theii' 
criminal career. Distribution by sex and race was 



also considered and indicates that 93 percent 
were males and 7 jiercent were females; 66 percent 
were white, 30 percent Negro, and 4 percent all 
other races. 

These 87,000 individual criminal records are 
made up primarily of Federal offenders who are 
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 permits one to infer that statistics 
concerning local serious offenders would closely 
ai)proximate those included in this study. The 
violators contained in this Program generally are 
serious offenders and, therefore, likely repeaters 
since common law enforcement practice is gen- 
erally not to submit a fingerprint card on minor 
or petty crimes. 

Profiles 

Table B illustrates the jirofiles of known re- 
l)eaters by type of crime. The table consists of 
repeaters who were arrested in calendar year 1966 
and 1967. It provides insight concerning the de- 
gree 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 
selected for inclusion in the study by type of 
crime based on their last charge. The average age 
of these offenders range from 27 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 39 years 
of age, the extreme ranges of age for first arrest 
for any offense were the gambler at age 30 and 
the burglar at 19 years of age. A significant con- 
sideration to bear in mind is that the average age 
at first arrest is influenced upward since finger- 
print cards are not submitted with any degree of 
consistency on juvenile offenders. 

Criminal careers of these offenders range from 
16 years for the gambler to 7 years for tlie more 
youthful auto thief. The burglar has the highest 
rate of repeating during a criminal career followed 
closely by those who were involved in felonious 
assault, robbery, sex offenses, narcotics and 
fraudulent checks. 

The gambler ranked highest among those re- 
peating in the same type of crime as indicated by 
58 percent rearrest in this violation. 

The narcotic offender and the burglar followed 
closely with 56 and 55 percent, respectively. Of 
the auto thieves, 42 percent repeated in auto 
theft during the course of their criminal career, 
while 37 percent of the robbers repeated in that 
category. Those involved in fraudulent check ac- 
tivities repeated at the rate of 48 percent in this 
type of crime. For those offenders involved in 
crimes against the person — murder, rape and felo- 
nious assault — the repetition rate in the same 
criminal act is much lower than property offenders. 
The frequency of i)robation, suspended sentences 
and parole granted to these offenders ranged from 
37 percent for gambling to 65 percent for those 
who had been charged with burglary. There 
appears to be a similarity between the burglar and 
the bogiis check offender in that 63 percent of the 
latter were granted the above forms of leniency 
and both of these criminal types have a high rate of 
recidivism in the same type of offense. Leniency 
was granted most frequently for specific charges 
involving auto thieves, bogus check offenders and 
the narcotic violators. 

The gambler and narcotic violator have the 
lowest rate of mobility with 66 and 53 percent, 
respectively, arrested in the same state during the 
course of their criminal career indicating the local 
nature of these offenders. 

Prior Charges 

An analysis was conducted with regard to 87,600 
individuals arrested in 1966 and 1967 with special 



emphasis on the number and type charges prior 
to their arrest in 1966 or 1967. It was found that 
82 percent of these i)ersons had been arrested on a 
prior charge, 70 percent were convicted of a prior 
charge and 46 jiercent were not only convicted but 
imprisoned for 90 days or more. 

Of those arrested for the violent offenses of 
murder, forcible rajie, felonious assault and rob- 
bery, 4 percent, 14 percent, 26 percent and 33 
percent respectively had a prior record of an arrest 
for these same crimes. In the important area of 
conviction, it was found that 75 percent of those 
arrested in 1966 and 1967 for violent crimes 
(murder, rape, felonious assault and robbery) had 
been convicted of some prior charge. It is interest- 
ing to note that 49 percent of these individuals 
had not only been convicted but imprisoned on a 
prior charge for 90 days or more. 

A special analysis was made concerning the 
crime of bank robbery and it was determined 
that of 1,487 bank robbers arrested in 1966 and 
1967, 82 percent had a prior arrest and 51 percent 
had a prior arrest for a crime of violence. 

The individuals involved in violent crimes were 
compared with those who perpetrated property 
crimes of burglary, larceny and auto theft. Consider- 
ing those persons arrested in 1966 and 1967 on 
property crime charges 50 percent, 41 percent and 
36 percent respectively had a prior record of an 
arrest for these very same offenses. In the area of 
conviction, it was found that of the indivnduals 
arrested in 1966 and 1967 for a property offense, 
69 percent had been arrested and convicted of a 
prior criminal charge; while 46 percent were con- 
victed and imprisoned on a prior occasion for 90 
days or more. 

4 Year 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 per- 
sons were followed for the next four years with 
the cutoff date for this study being December 31, 
1967. Inasmuch as they were already part of the 
Careers in Crime Program, new arrests were stored 
on magnetic tape and necessary items for this 
study specifically recalled. 

Type of Release 

Of all offenders (17,876) released to the streets 
in 1963, 60 percent were rearrested on a new charge 
within the four-year period. Chart 18 indicates 
that persons arrested on a new charge within 4 
years ranged from 33 percent for those released

\nth a fine and probation to 72 percent for offen- 
ders granted a mandatory release by a penal in- 
stitntion. The percentage figure for parole includes 
174 persons handled by Pre-Release Guidance 
Centers (Halfway Houses) of whom 68 ]>ercent 
were arrested within four years. It is interesting 
to note that 91 percent of those acquitted or dis- 
missed in 1963 were arrested on a new charge 
within four years. 

As indicated earlier, formal police charge and 
the submission of a fingerjirint card is done gen- 
erally for felonies or serious misdemeanors. For 
example, 18 percent of all rearrests were for 
drunkenness, disorderly conduct, serious moving 
traffic violations, and vagi'ancy. In most instances 
these were secondarj' arrests of the same offender, 
who also was arrested for a more serious offense. 
The offenders wlio rejjeated during tlie four-year 
period averaged .3 new arrests. Tiiis included 
3,195 new arrests for crimes of violence and 7,839 
for crimes against properlj'. 

Age 

A further examination of persons released in 
1963 was made by age group. Chart 19 reflects the 
percentage of persons, by age, \\"ho w ere 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, i)robation, 
parole and mandatory release for persons released 
in 1963 when broken down by percentage figures 
disclose the highest degree of recidivism was 
among the more youthful offenders. Of those 
granted probation 65 percent luider 20 years 
of age and 60 percent in the age group 20 
through 24 were arrested on new charges. Con- 
sidering those who were granted a mandatory 
release, 85 percent of those luider 25 repeated 
within tlie four year ])eriod. Statistics describing 
those i)ersons released on parole showed that 71 
percent of the offenders under 20 years of age 
and 67 percent of those 20 through 24 years of 
age were repeaters witliin fovn- years. 

Mobility 

The tendency on the part of criminals to move 
about the nation is illustrated by percentage 
com|)arisons describing the amount of mobilitj- 
of those persons who were rearrested after release 
in 1963 (Chart 20). The 1963 group was followed

for fovir years and consisted of 10,723 repeaters. 
For those granted parole, 65 percent of new 
charges against these people were initiated in 
another state, while 46 percent of the persons 
released on probation and/or suspended sentence 
were rearrested in a state other than the one in 
whicli they were originally convicted. It is interest- 
ing to note with respect to those who were ac- 
quitted or their charges dropped, that 51 percent 
traveled to another state and subsequently 



FBI CHART 

became involved with a law enforcement agency. 
Table C which illustrates mobility by type of 
charge further confirms the high percentage of 
mobility. 

While a high degree of mobility 52 percent for 
these offenders released in 1963 is apparent 
regarding all types of criminal offenders, some 
types of criminal offenders are more mobile than 
others. The narcotic offender and the gambler 
are primarily local while the auto thief has a very 
high degree of mobility. 

Mobility is certainly an important factor with 
regard to robbery and burglary offenders as almost 
half of the new arrests for persons involved in 
these types of crimes were made in states other 
than where they were originally charged. 

Type of Crime 

The general tendency toward greater recidivism 
appears in the group engaged in the more serious 
tyi)es of crimes. This is demonstrated in Charts 21 
and 22 whicli describe the percent of those released 
on probation, parole or granted mandatory release

who accumulated new charges within four years 
following their release in 1963. The percentage of 
repeat for the group released on probation ranged 
from 78 i)ercent for the auto thief, 74 percent for 
the burglary offender and 71 percent for those in- 
volved in narcotics to 19 percent released on em- 
bezzlement charges. 

A similarity exists for those released on parole in 
1963. Of those released on parole 72 percent of 
the auto thieves repeated, 68 percent of the 
burglars repeated, while 60 percent of those in- 
volved m narcotics offenses repeated. Only 22 
percent of those released on parole for embezzle- 
ment repeated over the foiu'-year period. While 
a degree of recidivism is evident with respect to 
all those released on probation, parole or granted 
a mandatory release, there is obviously a higher 
degree of recidivism among individuals in the more 
serious crimes. It would appear that some types of 
offenders, the embezzler for example, closely tied 
to the community are better risks for rehabilita-

The tendency toward a lesser degree of 
recidivism among those persons released on 
probation 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 viola- 
tions, and embezzlement are perpetrated by 
persons who generally have roots in the community 
and are less likely to repeat. Many of these 
offenders are granted probation or fine and pro- 
bation, therefore, it can be expected that 
recidivism will be lower when these types of 
circumstances are considered. 

Recidivism has been examined above with 
regard to new charges and subsequent involve- 
ment with law enforcement authorities. An 
additional study was made concerning convictions 
of subsequent charges to determine if the pattern 
of recidivism carried over to the important area 
of convictions. The study included all offenders 
released to the street in 1963. By December 31, 
1966, 57 percent of these persons were rearrested

on new charges. It was determined that of these 
repeaters 40 percent were convicted of a new 
offense by December 31, 1966. 

There is a definite tendency toward early re- 
cidivism. The group of individuals released in 1963 
were followed over a four-year period, and the 
percentage of offenders rearrested tabulated by 
j'ear. It would appear that the longer a releasee 
refrains from criminal involvement the greater 
his chances are for successful rehabilitation. The 
first two years appear to be critical and the

figures suggest a greater degree of supervision is 
necessary during this period of time. 

Table D breaks down the total fall-out into age 
groups. The high degree of early recidivism is 
obvious. There is a remarkable degree of con- 
sistency in the low fall-out percentages in the 
latter two years. The critical age group, 20 through 
40, in particular exemplify the critical nature of 
the first two years. 

Conclusion 

The high degree of recidivism in all types of 
crime particularly predatory crime is evident from 
the data presented in the Careers in Crime study. 
Law enforcement's problem of the repeater or 
hardcore criminal is compounded by their high 
degree of mobility. These individuals place an 
ever increasing burden upon law enforcement and 
raise serious questions with respect to the effective- 
ness of rehabilitation. 

The accompanying tables provide added insight 
into the problems of the repeater. The figures 
are based upon a 4 year follow-up after the 
offenders were released in 1963.

POLICE EMPLOYEE DATA 

This publication, commencing on page 156, 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 rejjorting 
cities. Tables are published containing data rela- 
tive to law enforcement officers killed and as- 
saulted in the line of duty to supplement the nar- 
rative material which follows. 

Police Employee Rates 

In 1967, the average number of police employees 
per 1,000 ])opulation (including civilian personnel) 
remained at 2, unchanged from the 1966 rate. It 
should be recalled, however, the 5 percent increase 
in the 1966 police employee rate was the first 
change in the national average police employee 
rate since 1960. The almost static growth in 
police strength is overshadowed by the startling 
growth of crime during the 1960's and the demands 
placed on law enforcement for police service — 
both criminal and noncriminal. 

Most United States cities continue to operate 
with a ])olice employee ratio of less than the na- 
tional average of 2.0 per 1,000. When arrayed by 
quartile, at least 50 jjcrcent of all American cities 
have police employee ratios ranging from 1.2 to 
l.S police employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 

Nationally, large cities over 250,000 population, 
as a group, had an average ratio of 2.7, unchanged 
from 1966. Slight increases were noted in the 
group of cities 50,000 to 100,000 inhabitants and 
cities 25,000 and under in population. 

The ratio of police employees to population in 
the rapidly expanding suburban areas rose mi- 
nutely (7 percent) in 1967 to 1.5, up from 1.4 in 
1966. Again it should be noted these comnnmities 
which are experiencing burgeoning populations 
are also recording the fastest increases in the 
volume of crime without a commensurate rise 
in police protection. One-half the suburban 
police departments have from 1.0 to 1.8 employees 
per 1,000 inhabitants. The number of ])olice 
employees in sheriffs' departments remained at 
1.1 in 1967, unchanged from 1966, while about 
one-half of the sheriffs' departments have from 
0.4 to 1.0 emploj'ees per 1,000 population. 

Geographically, cities in the Middle Atlantic 
States had the liighest average ratio of police 
employees to each 1,000 population with 2.7 while 



cities in the West South Central States had the 
lowest ratio with 1.4. 

Civilian Employees 

In Table 51 the percentage of total law enforce- 
ment ))ersonnel represented by civilian employees 
is tabulated by iJojjulation group. On the average, 
during 1967, 11.8 percent of all city police em- 
ployees were civilians, up from 11.0 percent in 
1966. This upward trend of 7 percent in the ratio 
of civilian employees existed in all but one city 
population group (cities 500,000 to one million 
inhabitants) and was also noted in suburban 
agencies, up from 13.8 percent in 1966 to 13.9 
percent. More and more law enforcement adminis- 
trators are making gi-eater utilization of civilian 
employees, thereby relieving sworn personnel for 
active police duties. Difficulties in recruiting quali- 
fied sworn personnel and increasing demands for 
police service are obstacles which many knowl- 
edgeable police administrators realize can only be 
partially overcome by employing more civilians 
for non-police functions. 

Sworn Personnel 

When police employee rates are computed on 
the basis of sworn personnel only (excluding 
ciAalian employees) the average rate for all cities 
is 1.8 per 1,000 population (Table 50). This is up 
by about 6 percent from 1.7 in 1966. The city 
rates, nationally, range from 0.1 to 7.9. The sworn 
personnel rate rose slightly in the suburban areas 
as well to 1.3, up from 1.2 in 1966. Rates also 
ranged in suburban areas from 0.1 to 7.9 in 1967. 
Average strengths of sworn employees remained 
unchanged in sheriffs' departments at 0.9. The 
rate range for these departments was 0.1 to 9.2. 
Caution should be exercised, however, in using 
rates for comparative purposes since there is such 
a wide variation in the responsibilities of various 
law enforcement agencies around the country. 
Just as the conditions which affect the amount 
and type of crime that occurs from place to place 
vary, so do the requirements for various types 
of police service vary based u])on the conditions 
which exist in a given community. For example, 
the increased need for police service in a com- 
munity which has a highly mobile or seasonal 
population differs from a community which has 
a relatively stable or fixed population. In addition, 
a smaller community situated between two larger 
areas may require a greater number of police

personnel to handle traffic enforcement due solely 
to its geographic location. The functions of the 
sheriffs also vary widely in different sections of 
the country. In certain areas the sherifT's re- 
sponsibilities are limited almost exclusively to 
ci\Tl functions and/or the administration of the 
county jail facilities. The departments used in 
computing rates, however, are all engaged in 
police acti\'ity and are responsible for all phases 
of policing in their jurisdiction. 

State Police and State Highway Patrols 

The police employee strengths of State Police 
and State Highway Patrol organizations are set 
forth in Table 54. This table pro\ddes additional 
data relative to the miles of primary highway and 
the number of state motor vehicle registrations 
per sworn employee, by state. 

Police Activity 

The volume and type of police activity, both 
criminal and noncriminal, vary widely from place 
to place. Likewise, police policy 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 
reported Crime Index offenses, criminal arrests 
made and traffic charges issued per sworn police

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 police discretion in charging an arrest, as 
well as miscellaneous state laws not applicable 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 49 and 50) 
in this publication represent national averages. 
They should be used as a guide and under no 
circumstances should they be considered as rec- 
ommended 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 

There were 76 law enforcement officers killed 
by criminal action in 1967. This high number 
of police killings was substantially above the 
annual average of 48 from 1960 through 1966. 
The addition of 76 police officers killed in 1967 
raises the toll of these tragic deaths to 411 for 
the 8-year period 1960-1967. 

Types of Police Activity 

In 1967 the tendency established in prior years 
continued in that more law enforcement officers 
met death by criminal action when effecting arrests 
and handling prisoners than from any other cause. 
Forty-two percent of the officers killed were 
engaged in this type of activity. A portion of these 
deaths could have been averted had the officer 
victim been more vigilant when making arrests or 
controlling prisoners instead of permitting these 
assignments to become routine. Nine officers 
were killed when their own weapons were seized 
and used against them. These deaths demonstrate 
a misplaced trust on the part of the officer victim 
with respect to the occasional and unpredictable 
violent nature of human behavior. Twenty per- 
cent of the officer victims met death w hen answer- 
ing disturbance-type calls such as family disputes, 
man \vith a gun, riots, etc. Officers interrogating 
or investigating suspicious persons accounted for 
8 percent of the deaths and an additional 8 percent 
of the officers were killed by mentally deranged 
or berserk individuals, usually with no warning. 
Thirteen percent of the police victims were killed 
by robbers interrupted during the commission of 
their crime or while being pursued, and 9 percent 
of the officer victims were killed by burglars 
caught in the act or fleeing the scene of their 
crime. 

The followmg table contains figures distribut- 
ing police murders by geographic region and by 
type of poUce activity for 1960-1967.

Weapons Used 

Firearms continued to be the weapons used in 
virtually all of tlie police killings in 1967, with 71 
or 93 percent of the 76 officers killed through the 
use of a firearm. Handguns were used in 54 of the 
murders, siiotguns in 7, and a rifle in 10. An addi- 
tional :i officers were killed by individuals using 
personal weapons, such as hands, fists, feet, and 2 
oflicers were deliberately run down and crushed 
by aulomobiles. During the period 1960-19C7 fire- 
arms liave been used in 96 percent of the police 
killings. Of this group wiiere firearms were used, 
77 percent of the weapons were handguns. 

48 



FBI CHART 

Specifically, of the 411 law enforcement officers 
slain by criminal action, the weapons used were 
304 handguns, 52 shotguns, 38 rifles, 4 knives, 6 
by personal weapons and 7 other means such as 
clubs, vehicles, etc. 

Years of Service 

'i'hc median years of service of police officers 
killed in the line of duty since 1960 remained at 6 
years. Eleven jicrcent of tlie ])olice officers killed 
had been active in law enforcement one year or 
less, 44 percent had 5 years or less [)olice service 
and 33 percent had 10 years or more of service. 



Types of Assignment 

Tlie officer on car patrol is constantly faced with 
tense situations demanding; instant decisions and 
response. He is usually the nuui first on the scene 
in answer to most calls for police service and dur- 
ing his routine patrols he is often confronted with 
the need to question suspicious persons on foot 
and in autos. He is the one most apt to come face 
to face with the burglar, robber and other felons 
caught in the act of committing a crime or hur- 
riedly fleeing the scene of a recently completed 
crime. As a result of these confrontations, each of 
which is unique, the officer riding in a patrol car 
most often becomes the victim of the police killer. 

This does not imply that law enforcement 
officers engaged in other types of police duty 
(foot patrol, detective, etc.) are not likewise 
presented with similar situations; they are, but 
not as frequently. 

Fifty-one officers on car patrol were killed in 
1967. In addition 16 detectives or officers assigned 
special duties, 5 technically off-duty officers, and 
4 officers on foot patrol were killed in 1967. Due 
to the fact that a law enforcement officer 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 their lives when they 
attempted to prevent the commission of a crime 
occurring in their presence. Since 1960, 272 or 66 
percent of the deceased officers were assigned to 
car patrols. 

During 1967, 44 of the officers who lost their 
lives as a result of criminal action were assisted by 
a fellow officer or officers at the scene of the crime 
and 32 (42 percent) were alone. During the past 
8 years, 1960-1967, 181 or 44 percent of the 
officers died unassisted and 230 were receiving 
help from other officers at the time they met 
death. 



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. Officers in two-man cars responding to 
disturbance calls were next followed by officers in 
two-man cars attempting arrests or transporting 
prisoners. It should be kept in mind when review- 
ing these figures that officers, even though as- 
signed 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. 

Since 1963 there has been a definite trend with 
respect to police killings in two types of activity. 
Police killings related to disturbance .calls in- 
creased from 7 in 1963 to 15 in 1967; and in 
attempting arrests and transporting prisoners, 17 
to 32 during the same period. 

Time of Murder 

Consistent with prior years, more officers were 
killed on Friday than any other day of the week. 
For the 8-year period, 1960-1967, 78 poHce 
killings occurred on Friday followed by 68 on 
Saturday, 60 on Wednesday, 58 on Thursday, 55 
on Sunday, 50 on Monday and 42 on Tuesday. 

The hours of darkness continue, of course, to be 
the most dangerous for the officers. Almost 73 
percent of the officers were killed between the 
hours of 4 p.m. and 4 a.m. The hours from 10 
p.m. to 3 a.m. have proven to be the most danger- 
ous with 150 law enforcement officers being killed 
during these hours. The hour 1 a.m. to 2 a.m. has 
seen more police officers killed than any other with 
a total of 34, and the hours 11 p.m. to 12 midnight 
and 12 midnight to 1 a.m. recorded 31 deaths each.

Police Killers 

During the 8-year period, 1960-1967, 411 law- 
enforcement officers have been murdered in the 
line of duty. A review of the criminal histories of 
the 539 offenders involved in these police murders 
indicates 77 percent had been arrested on some 
criminal charge before becoming involved in the 
police killings. In fact, 54 percent of those offenders 
with a prior criminal arrest had been previously 
taken into custody for a violent crime such as 
murder, rape, robbery, assault with intent to 
kill, etc. 

Among the 539 persons who were involved in 
these police killings, 67 percent had prior con- 
victions on criminal charges and, of this group, 
two-thirds had been granted leniency in the form 
of parole or probation on at least one of these 
prior convictions. It is significant to note that 
three of every ten of the murderers were on 
parole or probation when they murdered a 
police officer. Thirteen or 2 percent of these 
individuals involved in a police killing had been 
charged on some prior occasion with an offense of 
murder. 

During the period 1960 through 1967, these 539 
individuals responsible for police killings had ac- 
cumulated an average of almost 5 arrests each 
during an average criminal career of 10 years. 

Over the 8-year j)eriod 17 females have been 
involved in the murder of police officers and in 
all but one instance these females were with male 
companions at the time of the murder. Consider- 
ing race of police killers 337 or 63 percent were 
white and 202 or 37 percent were Negro. 

Ages of Police Killers 

Persons involved in police murders ranged in 
age from a boy of 13 to a man of 73 with a median 
age of 27. Over the 8-year period 1960-1967 there 
have been 35 juveniles (6 percent) under the age 
of 18 arrested for the murder of a i)olice officer. 
Almost one-half of the murderers were in the 20 



to 30 age bracket with the age 25 appearing most 
frequently. 

Assaults on Police 

One of the serious problems facing the law 
enforcement officer today is the growing segment 
of public disrespect for the police officer and the 
failure of citizens to come to the aid of officers 
being attacked as they attempt to perform their 
lawfid duties. These attitudes certainly are, in 
a large measure, responsible for the nationwide 
increase of 11 percent in the rate of assaults on 
law enforcement officers last year. Nationally 
there were 13.5 assaults for 100 officers in 1967 
up from 12.2 in 1966. Geographically the highest 
assault rate occurred in the East South Central 
States with 26.0 assaults for every 100 officers. 
Also above the national average were assault 
rates in the South Atlantic States with 17.1, the 
Mountain States with 15.6 and the New England 
States with 15.0 assaults for every 100 officers. 

While every assault does not result in personal 
injury, a high percentage — 40% in 1967 — did 
result in physical harm to the officer victim and 
usually loss of duty time. Table 53 sets out police 
assault rates by geographic divisions and jjoji- 
ulation groups for 1967. 

Accidental Deaths 

There have been 247 law enforcement officers 
killed in accidents during the past 7 years, with 
47 of these accidental deaths occurring in 1967. 
These figures, of course, are in addition to the 
officers who lost their lives through violent 
criminal action. A review of the data on acci- 
dental deaths discloses 138 of the deaths resulted 
from automobile accidents and 57 from motorcycle 
accidents. An additional 29 officers were killed 
accidentally while directing traffic on foot or 
at the scene of a serious accident. The remaining 
23 deaths resulted from other types of accidents 
such as accidental discharge of firearms, falls, 
helicopter crashes, drownings, etc.

Introduction 



Background 

The Uiiifonn 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 tliroughout the Nation 
based on uniform classifications and procedures 
develoi^ed 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. In 
this connection, the Field Service Division of the 
lACP is also playing an active and effective part 
in quality control through surveys of jjolice 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. 

During 1967 an Advisory Group to the Commit- 
tee on Uniform Crime Records, appointed in 1966, 
continued its activities in support of the develop- 
ment and operation of the National Crime In- 
formation Center (NCIC). This Center, a com- 
puterized nationwide index of documented law 
enforcement information on crime and criminals 
became ojjerational on January 27, 1967, at FBI 
Headquarters, Washington, D.C., and by the end 
of the year was servicing several hundred local, 
state and Federal police agencies throughout the 
United States. Detailed information concerning 
NCIC |)olicies and operating j)rocedures have been 
published by the FBI in the National Crime 
Information Center Operating Manual. This 
manual has been widely distributed among local, 
state and Federal law enforcement agencies. Also 
published for the information of NCIC network 
participants is a monthly NCIC Newsletter con- 



taining timely information concerning the system 
and its use. 

At a meeting of the Advisory Group in May, 
1967, two important resolutions were i)repared for 
the parent committee on Uniform Crime Records 
which contained police declarations most im- 
portant to the future of law enforcement computer- 
ized information systems. The first concerned 
maintaining the confidentiality of police informa- 
tion stored in systems shared with other Govern- 
ment entities. It was resolved that the controls 
governing access to police information remain as 
they have been historically placed with the law 
enforcement agencies. The second resolution con- 
cerned the criminal identification record which 
will serve as a source document for any integrated 
information system for all areas of criminal justice. 
This resolution encouraged all criminal justice 
agencies to contribute information for this docu- 
ment and recommended that a study be under- 
taken to determine and recommend such standard 
definitions and formats and to develop appropri- 
ate procedures to insure the completeness of the 
criminal identification record. The executive com- 
mittee and the entire membership of the lACP 
unanimously adopted the foregoing resolutions in 
September, 1967. 

Increased attention is being given to participa- 
tion in the Uniform Crime Reporting Program 
by sheriffs throughout the country. This was 
evidenced by a resolution to take affirmative action 
in encouraging such participation at the annual 
conference of the National Sheriffs' Association 
(NSA) in June, 1967. The resolution was drawn 
up and presented by the Committee on Uniform 
Crime Records, NSA, which Committee was es- 
tablished in 1966 to serve in an advisory capacity 
to NSA membership. 

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 



53 



uniform crime statistics and by lending assistance 
to contributors when the need exists. 

Objectives 

The fundamental objective of this Progi-am 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 outlines 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 publication 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 Police 
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 procediu-es and definitions 
necessary under this uniform 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 police from victims or 
other sources or discovered by the police in their 
own operations. Complaints determined by police 
investigation to be unfounded are eliminated 
from this count. The number of "offel^ses known" 
in these crime categories is reported to the FBI 
without regard to whether anyone is arrested, 
stolen property is recovered, local prosecutive 
policy, or any other consideration. Police agencies 
report on a monthly basis the total number of 
these crimes 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, includmg total arrests 
made for the month for all criminal acts separated 
as to adults and juveniles. 

In amiual reports, "offenses known" data and 
clearances by arrest are summarized by the 
contributors. Aimual forms provide a report of 
persons arrested for all criminal offenses mth 
respect to age, sex and race of the offender, as 
well as an accounting of the number of jiersons 
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 1967, crime reports 
were received from law enforcement agencies 
representing 98 percent of the total United 
States population living in standard metropolitan 
statistical areas, 89 percent of the population in 
other cities, and 75 jiercent of the rural jiopulation. 
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 ])urposes rural is generally the unin- 
corporated portion of a county outside of standard 
metropolitan statistical areas. In addition, sheriffs' 



54 



departments or state police agencies frequently 
provide coverage for small incorporated com- 
munities wliich do not jjrovide tlieir own police 
service. These places are characteristically more 
rural tlian urban, thus the crime counts for tliese 
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 lie 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 
ha\-ing at least one core city of 50,000 or more 
inhabitants, with the whole meeting the require- 
ments of certain metropolitan characteristics. 
In New England, "town" instead of "county" is 
used to describe standard metropolitan statistical 
areas. These towns do not coincide generally with 
established crime reporting units; therefore, metro- 
politan 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 citifs are urban jjlaces outside standard 
metropolitan statistical areas. Most of these 
places of 2,500 or more inhabitants are incor- 
porated and comi)rise 13 i)ercent of the 1967 
3stimated ])opulation. Rural areas are made up of 
the unincorporated portions of counties outside of 
.irban places and standard metropolitan statistical 
ireas and represent 19 i^ercent of our national 
)opidation. Throughout this Program, sheriffs, 
■ounty jjolice and many state ])olice re])ort on 
■rimes committed within the Imiits of the countj 
3ut outside cities, while i)olice report on crimes 
committed within the city limits (urban i)]aces). 

Verification Processes 

Uniformity of crime data collected under this 
Program Ls of primary concern to the FBI as 
he national clearinghouse. With the receij)! of 
-eports covering approximately 8,400 jurisdictions, 
irepared on a voluntary basis, the problems of 



attaining uniformity are readily apparent. Issu- 
aiu'e of instructions does not complete tlie role of 
tlie FBI. On the contrary, it is standard operating 
Ijrocedure 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 established by jirevious reports of 
each agency are used as a measure of ])ossible 
or probable incompleteness or changes in reporting 
policy. Necessary arithmetical adjustments or 
unusual variations are brought to the attention of 
the submitting agency by correspondence. During 
1967, 19,800 letters were addressed to contributors 
primarily as a result of verification and evaluation 
processes. Correspondence with contributors is the 
])riiici))al tool for supervision of quality. Not only 
are tlie 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 comparability 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 elimination of duplication of crime report- 
ing by the various agencies is given constant atten- 
tion. In addition to detailed instructions as to 
the limits of reporting jurisdictions between 
sheriffs and police in urban places, lists of urban 
places by county are furnished to sheriffs, county 
police, 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 established 
in 19.35, and there are 3,091 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 
police schools throughout the country. 

Contacts by Special Agents of the FBI are 
utilized to enlist the coo])eration of new contrib- 
utors and to explain the i)urpose 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 stei)s indicated 



55 



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

It is clear, of course, that regardless of the extent 
of the statistical verification ]irocesses 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 Crime Totals 

Commimities not represented by crime reports 
are relatively few, as discussed previously and as 
shown by an examination of the tables which 
follow presenting 1967 crime totals for the Index 
of Crime classifications. The FBI conducts a con- 
tinuing ])rogram 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. 

Crime Trends 

Crime data for trends are homogeneous to the 
extbnt that figures from identical reporting units 
are used for each of the periods tabulated. In all 
trend tabulations only those reporting units are 
used whicli have provided cojnparable data for 
the period under consitlcratinn. National, geo- 
graphic, and area trends are always established 
on the basis of two consecutive y^ars. Exclusions 
from trend computations are niade when figures 
froni a reporting unit are obviously inaccurate 
for any period or when it is ascertained that 
uiuisiud lluctunlions are due to sucli variables as 
improved records procedures and not to cluuice. 

As a matter of standard ])roce(Uu'e crime trends 
for individual ])hiccs arc analyzed five tijncs a 
year by the FBI. An.y significant increase or 



decrease is made the subject of a special inquiry 
with the contributing agency. In 1967 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 de- 
creases 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 
vised 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 m ost 
complete in terms of volume. Trend or percent 
change as established by cojnparal)le units for 
each two-year period is then applied as tlie basis 
for re-estimating the voluine of crime for prif)r 
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 
rejiorting or records procedures rather than to 
chance. 

Populafion Data 

In comi)uting crime rates by state, geographic 
division, and the Nation as a whole, population 
estimates released by the Bureau of the Census 
on November 24, 1967, 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 1967 population estimates for indi- 
vidual cities and counties were used from 16 
states while official sources in other states |)rovided 
limited data wliich was used selectively. Tlie esti- 
nuited United States population increase in 1967 
was I percent over 1966 according to figures 
publisiied by liic Bureau of the Census. 

Classification of Offenses 

A stumbling block to a uniform national crime 
rcjiorting system in tlic United States results from 
variations in definitions of criminal violations 



56 



among the states. This obstarle, insofar as uni- 
formity of definitions is concerned, was removed 
bj' tlic adoption of an arbitrary set of crime chissi- 
ficatiuns. To some extent the title of each classifi- 
cation connotes in a general way its content. 
However, in reading the e.xplanation 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 tliis 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 maj' 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) Miu-der and non- 
neghgent manslaughter: all willful felonious homi- 
cides as distinguished from deaths caused by 
negUgence. Excludes attempts to kUl, assaults to

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. (6) 
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).

The Index of C 



rime. 



1967 



In this section, tabulations are shown to indicate 
the probable extent, fluctuation and distributi(ni 
of crime for the United States as a whole, geo- 
graphic divisions, individual states and standard 
metropohtan statistical areas. The measure used 
is a Crime Index consisting of seven important 
offenses which are counted as they become know n 
to the law enforcement agencies. Crime classifica- 
tions used in the Index are: murder and non- 
neghgent manslaugliter, 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 
unknow n, 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, tiie 
above crimes were selected as a grovip 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 
mobile population all communities, metropohtan 
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 rehable 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 readily discerned by a review 
of these tables.

1 The percentage representing area actually reporting will not coincide with the ratio between reported and estimated crime totals since these data 
represent the sum of the calculations for individual states which have varying populations, portions reporting and crime rates. 

Population by area for each state is 1967 estimate: total population for each state is Bureau of the Census provisional estimate as of July 1, 1967, and subject 
to change. All rates were calculated on the estimated population before rounding.

General United States Crime Statistics 



The data presented in this section are prknarily 
of vahie 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 
di\-ision. 

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, biu^glary, and larceny- 
theft are examined by type, as well as where and 
when they occurred. An analysis is provided 
sho\ving 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 niral 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 picture of the community crime problem or 
the effectiveness of the police operation is possible

Tables in the follo\ving section pro\n(ie certain 
personal characteristics of indinduuls arrested for 
all criminal acts. Arrest rates and trends are shown 
for city, suburban and rural areas, as well as the

lished containing; characteristics of j^ersons ar- 
rested by age, se.x 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 74 percent of the United 
States popidation. 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 ac- 
ti\dty, 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 individ- 
ual is taken into custody for committing a specific 
crime. A juvenile is counted as a person arrested 
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 crimmality 
when used \\-ithin 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 full-time police 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 police employee rates 
are set forth. In the first, total employees including 
ci\'ilian personnel are used, whereas in the second 
table only sworn personnel are used to compute 
rates. 

The police employee rate ranges in Table 49, 
which include civilians, show the interquartile 
range between the upper limits of the lowest 
quartile and the lower limits of the highest quar- 
tile. In other words, 50 percent of the cities shown 
in each population group and geographic division 
have a police strength within the rate ranges 
shown. By arraying rates in this manner, extremes 
are eliminated. 

In Table 50 where rates are published 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 liighway 
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 their 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 police killed and assaidted. 
Collection of these data is supplemented with 
respect to police 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 publication.
