r ore word 

The crime information in the Uniform Crime Reporting publications which 
date back to the commencement of this Program in 1930 is a testimonial to 
the wisdom and progressive outlook of law enforcement administrators. The 
Uniform Crime Reporting Program is the product of a voluntary cooperative 
law enforcement effort to produce national crime statistics. Approximately 
10,000 law enforcement agencies, covering 93 percent of the United States 
population, submit monthly and annual reports to the FBI so that information 
can be assembled to depict the current crime problem in the United States. 
National crime information would not be available for use by local, state, and 
Federal governments in planning and developing means of combatting the 
crime problem without the voluntary participation of law enforcement agencies. 

Uniform Crime Reports is a practical Program in that each contributing 
law enforcement agency is responsible for submitting data in accordance \vith 
national crime definitions and standards. Much of the quality in this Program 
is directly related to the degree of adherence to Uniform Crime Reporting 
standards. In order to improve the overall quaUty of the information collected 
in the Program, the FBI in 1967 began encouraging the development of state 
Uniform Crime Reporting Programs. Under this concept, states are encouraged 
to pass mandatory crime reporting laws and designate a state criminal justice 
agency to collect and verify submitted crime data. Currently 14 states are 
operating such programs. As part of this concept, the state agency needs to 
develop audit capability designed to ensure that each law enforcement agency 
is following the national standards. 

Each state which develops a Uniform Crime Reporting Program has local 
and state information immediately available for planning, legislation, and 
disbursement of funds. Through the use of such information state governments 
can identify areas within the state criminal justice system that require ad- 
ditional resources. This enables the crime control effort to isolate and more 
effectively handle the problem. 

The Law Enforcement Assistance Administration offers financial assistance 
to states in connection wdth the development and estabUshment of such crime 
reporting systems. As more and more states develop mandatory state systems, 
the overall quality of crime data ^\'ill improve and the amount of information 
available for use by those concerned with the administration of criminal justice 
will increase.

Crime Factors 

Crime is a social problem and the concern of the entire community. The 
law enforcement effort is limited to factors within its control. 

Uniform Crime Reports gives a nationwide view of crime based on police 
statistics voluntarily contributed by local law enforcement agencies. The 
factors which cause crime are many and vary from place to place throughout 
the country. The reader of this publication is cautioned against comparing 
statistical information of individual communities solely based on a similarity 
in their population counts. Population is only one of many factors which must 
be considered in a comparative study of crime. Some of the conditions which 
affect the volume and type of crime that occurs from place to place are briefly 
outlined as follows: 

Density and size of the community population and the metropolitan 

area of which it is a part. 
Composition of the population with reference particularly to age, 

sex, and race. 
Economic status and mores of the population. 
Stabilitv' of population, including commuters, seasonal, and other 

transient tj^pes. 
Climate, including seasonal weather conditions. 
Educational, recreational, and religious characteristics. 
Effective strength of the police force. 
Standards of appointments to the local police force. 
Policies of the prosecuting officials. 
Attitudes and policies of the courts and corrections. 
Relationships and attitudes of law enforcement and the community. 
Administrative and investigative efficiency of law enforcement, in- 
cluding degree of adherence to crime reporting standards. 
Organization and cooperation of adjoining and overlapping police 
jurisdictions.

CRIME INDEX TOTALS 

The offenses of murder, forcible rape, robbery, 
aggravated assault, burglary, larceny $50 and 
over in value, and auto theft are used to estabUsh 
an Index in the Uniform Crime Reporting 
Program, to measure the trend and distribution 
of crime in the United States. These crimes are 
counted by law enforcement agencies as they 
become known and are reported on a monthly 
basis. The Crime Index offenses were selected 
as a measuring device 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. 
The offenses of murder, forcible rape, aggravated 
assault, and robbery make up the violent crime 
category. The offenses of burglary, larceny $50 
and over in value, and auto theft make up the 
property crime category. 

Law enforcement does not purport to know the 
total volume of crime because of the many 
criminal actions which are not reported to official 
sources. Estimates as to the level of unreported 
crime can be developed through costly victim 
surveys but this does not eliminate the reluctance 
of the victim to report all criminal actions to 
law enforcement agencies. In light of this situa- 
tion, the best source for obtaining useable crime 
counts is the next logical universe which is the 
offenses known to the police. The crimes used in 
the Crime Index are those considered to be most 
constantly reported and provide the capabihty 
to compute meaningful crime trends and crime 
rates. 

The crime counts used in the Crime Index 
and set forth in this publication are based on 
actual offenses established by pohce investi- 
gation. When the law enforcement agency receives 
a complaint of a criminal matter and the follow-up 
investigation discloses no crime occurred it is 
"unfounded." On a national average, pojice 
investigations "unfound" 4 percent of the com- 
plaints concerning Crime Index offenses ranging 
from 2 percent in the larceny classification to 15 
percent in the forcible rape classification. These 
unfounded complaints are eUminated from the 
crime counts. 

During calendar year 1972, an estimated 
5,891,900 Crime Index offenses were reported to 
law enforcement agencies. This is a 2 percent 
decrease from 1971. The violent crime category 
made up 14 percent of the Crime Index total and 



increased 2 percent in volume over 1971. Murder 
increased 5 percent, forcible rape 11 percent, and 
aggravated assault 7 percent. Robbery declined 
3 percent. The voluminous property crimes as a 
group declined 2 percent. Auto theft decreased 
6 percent, larceny $50 and over in value decreased 
2 percent, and burglary was down 1 percent. 

Since 1967 the violent crimes as a group have 
increased 67 percent and the property crimes 53 
percent. Crime, as measured by the Crime 
Index offenses, has risen 55 percent in volume 
during this five-year period. 

The volume of crime as measured by the Crime 
Index, reveals the large core cities having popula- 
tion in excess of 250,000 recorded an 8 percent 
decrease while the suburban areas recorded a 2 
percent increase over 1971. The rural areas of the 
United States registered a 4 percent increase. 
The cities over 1,000,000 population reported a 
decrease of 12 percent from the previous year. 

Regionally in 1972, the Western States reported 
a 2 percent increase in crime while the North- 
eastern States registered a 7 percent decrease, the 
North Central States a 1 percent decrease, and the 
Southern States recorded a decrease of less than 
1 percent. 

The estimated 1972 crime figures for the United 
States are set forth in the following table. 

CRIME AND POPULATION 

Crime rates relate the incidence of crime to 
population. A crime rate should be considered a 
victim risk rate in that it demonstrates the risk 
of becoming a victim of crime. 

The Crime Index rate of the United States in 
1972 was 2,829 per 100,000 inhabitants. This was 
a 3 percent decrease from the crime rate of 2,907 
per 100,000 inhabitants in 1971. The national 
crime rate, or the risk of being a victim of one of 
these crimes, has increased 47 percent since 1967. 
Many factors influence the nature and extent of 
crime in a particular community. A number of 
these factors are shown on page vii of this publica- 
tion. A crime rate takes into consideration only 
the numerical factor of population and does not 
incorporate anj' of the other elements which 
contribute to the amount of crime in a given area. 
The statistical tables in this publication disclose 
that the var^ang crime experiences, especially in 
large cities and suburban communities, are affected 
by a complex set of involved factors and are not 
solely related to numerical population differences.

The tables set forth on these pages reveal the 
variations in crime experience by geographic 
region, large cities, suburban, and rural areas. 

The crime rates, set forth in the National Crime 
Rate and Percent Change table, for each of the 
Crime Index offenses show a variation from a 10 
percent increase in forcible rape to a 7 percent 
decrease in auto theft. The number of crimes per 
unit of population is highest in the large metro- 
politan centers. 

The accompanying charts illustrate the trend of 
crime in the United States from 1967 through 
1972 bj'' showing percent changes in volume and 
crime rate together with the population increase. 
Separate charts provide similar information rela- 
tive to crimes of violence and crimes against prop- 
erty. Since 1967, the violent crime rate has 
increased 59 percent and the property crime rate 
increased 45 percent. The violent crime group 
includes murder, forcible rape, robbery, and ag- 
gravated assault offenses. The property crime cate-

MURDER AND NONNEGLIGENT 
MANSLAUGHTER 

This Crime Index offense is defined in Uniform 
Crime Reporting as the \\allful killing of another. 
The classification in this offense, as in all of the 
other Crime Index offenses, is based solely on 
police investigation as opposed to the determina- 
tion of a court, medical examiner, coroner, jury, 
or other judicial body. 

Deaths caused by negligence, suicide, accident, 
or justifiable homicide are not included in the 
count for this offense classification. Attempts to 
murder or assaults to murder are scored as ag- 
gravated assaults and not as murder. 

Volume 

In 1972 there were an estimated 18,520 murders 
committed in the United States. This represents

a numerical increase of 890 over the 17,630 
estimated homicide jffenses for 1971. The number 
of murders in 1972 is approximately 2 percent of 
the total for violent crime and less than one-half 
of one percent of the total of the seven Crime 
Index offenses. 

An analysis of murder by month in 1972 shows 
that the summer months had the greatest frequency 
of murder as compared to any other period of the 
year. 

A geographical breakdown of murder by region 
showed 44 percent of the murders occurred in the 
Southern States, 21 percent in the North Central 
States, 20 percent in the Northeastern States, 
and 15 percent in the Western States. 

Trend 

The number of murders increased 5 percent in 
1972 over 1971. The trend in this crime classifica- 
tion reveals an increase from 12,130 in 1967 to 
18,520 m 1972. This is an increase of 53 percent. 
(Chart 4) 

Kegionally, the number of murder offenses in 
1972 increased 11 percent in the Western States, 
8 percent in the Northeastern States, and 5 per- 
cent in the Southern States. The number of mur- 
ders decreased approximately 1 percent in the 
North Central States. 

An analysis, by population grouping, of murder 
shows that large core cities of 250,000 or more in- 
habitants had a 4 percent increase in the number 
of murders in 1972, the suburban areas experi- 
enced an 11 percent increase in murder offenses, 
and the rural areas had a 2 percent increase. 

Murder Rate 

In 1972, there were 8.9 victims of murder 
for every 100,000 inhabitants in the nation. This 
was an increase of 5 percent over the murder rate 
of 8.5 per 100,000 inhabitants recorded in 1971. 

By population gi'ouping, the cities with 250,000 
or more inhabitants reported a murder rate of 19.7 
victims per 100,000 inhabitants, the suburban 
areas showed a rate of 4.6 and the rural areas a 
rate of 7.4 per 100,000 inhabitants. 

The number of murder victims in proportion 
to population was highest in the Southern States 
with 12.6 murders per 100,000 inhabitants. This 
is an increase of 3 percent over the murder rate 
of that Region in 1971. In 1972, the Western 
States showed a murder rate of 7.7, an increase of 
10 percent over the rate in 1971 for that Region. 
The Northeastern States had a rate of 7.3 which 



was a 7 percent increase over the 1971 rate for 
those states. The North Central Region had a 
rate of 6.8, a decrease of 1 percent in comparison 
to the 1971 rate. 

Nature of Murder 

The law enforcement agencies which partici- 
pate in Uniform Crime Reporting cooperate in 
providing additional information regardmg homi- 
cide so that a more in-depth analysis of this offense 
can be made. Through a supplemental reporting 
system, information is provided regarding the age, 
sex, and race of the victim ; the weapon used in the 
murder; and the circumstances surrounding the 
offense. 

The victims of murder in 1972 were male in 
approximately four out of five instances. This 
ratio of male to female victims is similar to the 
experience in the last several years. Approximately 
45 out of 100 murder victims were white, 53 were 
Negro, and 2 percent other races. The largest 
number of murders occurring in any ten year age 
bracket was in the 20 to 29 group \\ith three of 
every ten murder victims. 

In 1972, firearms again predominated as the 
weapon most often used in homicide in the nation. 
The accompanying chart illustrates a breakdown 
by type of weapon used in the commission of 
murder in the nation. Firearms were used more 
frequently in the Southern States than in any 
other region with firearms used in more than seven 
of every ten murders. Nationwide, 66 percent of 
the homicides were committed through the use of 
firearms and 54 percent were committed with 
handguns. In 1971, 51 percent of the murders were 
through the use of handguns. 

Cutting or stabbing weapons were used in 19 
percent of the murders in the nation. The North- 
eastern States reported the greatest use of knives

or cutting instruments with three out of every 
ten murders being committed with this type of 
weapon. The North Central and Southern States 
had the least incidence of use of this type of weapon 
with less than two out of every ten murders. 
Other weapons (blunt objects, poisons, explosives, 
arson, drowning, etc.) were used in 7 percent of 
the homicides and the remaining 8 percent of the 
murders were the result of use of personal 
weapons such as hands, fists, feet, etc. 

A comparative study for the past seven years 
shows an increase from 60 percent of all homicides 
through use of firearms in 1966 to 66 percent of 
all homicides in 1972. A comparative analysis of 
weapons used to commit murder for 1966 through 
1972 is shown in tabular form. 

The circumstances which result in murder vary 
from family arguments to felonious activities. 
Criminal homicide is largely a societal problem 
which is beyond the control of poUce. The circum- 
stances of murder serve to emphasize this point. 
In 1972, murder within the family made up ap- 
proximately one-fourth of all murder offenses. 
Over one-half of these family kilhngs involved 
spouse killing spouse. The remainder were parents 



kilUng children and other in-family killings. 
Felony murder in Uniform Crime Reporting is 
defined as those killings resulting from robbery, 
sex motive, gangland slaying, and other felonious 
activities. Felony type and suspected felony 
tj'pe murders in 1972 constituted 27 percent of 
all murder, whereas these two categories accounted 
for 22 percent of total murder in 1966. Tables 
showing breakdown by geographical region for 
murder in 1972 and murder breakdown by 
circumstance for 1966-1972 accompany this 
section. 

During 1972, 7 percent of the murders were 
the result of romantic triangles or lovers' quarrels. 
In murders involving husband and wife, the wife 
was the victim in 52 percent of the incidents 
and the husband the victim in the remaining 48 
percent. In these incidents involving spouses, 
52 percent of the victims were Negro, 47 percent 
white, and the remaining victims were of other 
races. 

The victims of felony type murder were 61 per- 
cent white, 38 percent Negro, and the remaining 
1 percent of other race or race not reported.

Clearartces 

Nationally, police continue to be successful 
in clearing or solving by arrest a greater percentage 
of homicides than any other Crime Index offense. 
In 1972, 82 percent of the homicides were solved; 
however, in 1971, 84 percent of all murder offenses 
were solved. Persons under 18 years of age were 
involved in 5 percent of the willful kiUings solved 
by poUce. 

Since 1967, the clearance rate, nationwide, in 
homicide has decreased from 88 per 100 offenses to 
82 per 100 offenses in 1972. 

Penorti Arrested 

Based on reports submitted by law enforcement 
agencies, 11 percent of all persons arrested for 



murder were under 18 years of age, and 44 percent 
were under 25. During the period 1967-1972 there 
was a 97 percent increase in the number of persons 
under 18 years of age arrested for murder. The 
increase in adult arrests for murder offenses during 
this period was 57 percent. Numerically, the 20 to 
24 year age group had the heaviest involvement 
during 1972 with 24 percent of the total arrests 
coming from within this age group. Negroes made 
up 60 percent of the arrests for murder in 1972 and 
53 percent of the victims of homicide were also 
Negroes. 

Perior)s Charged 

Law enforcement agencies' reports disclose that 
71 percent of all adults arrested for murder in 1972 
were prosecuted during the year. Forty-one percent 
of the adults prosecuted were found guilty as 
charged, and 23 percent were convicted on some 
lesser charge. The remaining 36 percent won re- 
lease by acquittal or dismissal of the charges 
against them. Of all individuals processed for 
murder, 11 percent were juveniles who had their 
cases referred to juvenile court jurisdiction. 

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT 

Aggravated assault is defined as an unlawful 
attack by one person upon another for the purpose

507-082 O - 73 ■ 



of inflicting severe bodily injury usually accom- 
panied by the use of a weapon or other means likely 
to produce death or serious 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 were success- 
fully completed. 

Volume 

In calendar year 1972, there were an estimated 
388,650 aggravated assaults in the Nation. This 
is a 7 percent increase, or 24,055 additional 
offenses over 1971. This crime agamst the person 
made up 7 percent of the Crime Inde.x offenses 
in 1972 and comprised 47 percent of the crimes of 
violence. Regionally, the Southern States reported 
38 percent of the total count of these crimes 
followed by the North Central States with over 
21 percent, the Northeastern States with 21 
percent, and the Western States with over 20 
percent. As has been the experience in previous 
years, the summer months recorded the highest 
frequencies of aggravated assault during 1972. 

Trend 

In 1972, the volume of aggravated assault 
offenses increased 7 percent over 1971 and 53 
percent over 1967. Cities with over 250,000 in- 
habitants had an increase of about 1 percent. 
The suburban areas reported an increase of 12 
percent and the rural areas an increase of 11 per- 
cent. 

The Northeastern and Western States each 
reported increases of 9 percent. The North Central 
States had an 8 percent increase, and the Southern 
States an increase of approximately 3 percent. 

Aggravated Assault Rate 

For each 100,000 persons in the United States 
during 1972, there were 187 victims of aggravated 
assault. Large core cities with 250,000 or more 
inhabitants recorded a victim rate of 353 ag- 
gravated assaults per 100,000 inhabitants, subur- 
ban areas had 128, and rural areas 109. The 
victim rate for the Nation for aggravated assault 
increased 6 percent over 1971, and 45 percent over 
1967. (See Chart 6.) The Southern States were 
highest with a rate of 227 per 100,000 followed by 
the Western States with 219, the Northeastern 
States with 162, and the North Central States 142. 
This victim rate increased less than one percent 
in large core cities while the suburban and rural 



area rates were up 9 percent and 8 percent 
respectively. 

Nature of Aggravated Assault 

Most aggravated assaults occur within the 
family unit, and among neighbors or acquaint- 
ances. The victim-offender relationship, as well as 
the nature of the attack makes this crime similar 
to murder. In 1972, over 25 percent of the serious 
assaults were committed with the use of a firearm. 
A knife or other cutting instrument was used in 
over 26 percent of the assaults, 23 percent were 
committed with blunt objects or other dangerous 
weapons, and over 25 percent with personal weap- 
ons, such as hands, fists, and feet. A comparison of 
the weapons used to commit assault from 1967 to 
1972 indicates that assaults with firearms have 
increased 85 percent; assaults with a knife or 
other cutting instrument have risen 23 percent; 
assaults where blunt objects or other dangerous 
weapons are used increased 58 percent, and those 
assaults through use of personal weapons have 
climbed 62 percent. The table which follows dem- 
onstrates the regional experience of aggravated 
assault in 1972 by type of weapon used. 

Clearances 

Law enforcement agencies were successfvil in 
solving 66 of each 100 cases of aggravated assault 
in 1972. This clearance rate was the same in 1971. 
This relatively high solution rate is consistent with 
high solution rates in other crimes against the 
person. Persons under 18 years of age were identi- 
fied in 11 percent of these clearances. Due to the 
nature of these crimes, arrests are frequently made 
upon the response of patrol units. This type of 
patrol call is hazardous to the officers. Since 1963, 
103 officers have lost their lives responding to 
disturbance-type calls, which frequently involve 
family or neighborhood arguments.

Persons Arrested 

Arrests for aggravated assault in 1972 increased 
33 percent over 1967. Since 1967 arrests of persons 
18 years of age and over for aggravated assault have 
increased 31 percent and arrests of persons under 
18 years of age for this offense have increased 38 
percent. As a group, persons 21 years of age and 
over accounted for 70 percent of the arrests for 
aggravated assault in 1972 and those under age 
21 accounted for 30 percent. Arrests of males 
outnumbered females by about 7 to 1. 

Persons Charged 

Law enforcement agencies have difficulty in ob- 
taining convictions based on the original charge in 
the aggravated assault category. The close family 
or other relationshi]) which exists between victims 
and assailants in this category accounts for the 
victim's frequent unwillingness to testify for the 
prosecution. Acquittals and dismissals, therefore, 
continue to run high, with four out of every ten 
cases being subjected to this type of disposition. 
Seventy-four out of every 100 adults arrested 
for aggravated assault in 1972 were prosecuted. 
Forty-one percent of the adults prosecuted for 
this offense were convicted on this charge, 18 
percent were convicted of lesser charges while 19 
percent of all persons processed were referred to 
juvenile court jurisdiction. 

FORCIBLE RAPE 

Forcible rape, as defined under this Program, is 
the carnal knowledge of a female through the use 
of force or the threat of force. Assaults to commit 
forcible rape are also included; however, statutory 
rape (without force) is not counted in this category. 
Crime counts m this offense classification are 
broken down by actual forcible rapes and attempted 
forcible rapes. 

Volunte 

During 1972, there was an estimated total of 
46,430 forcible rapes. Numerically, the volume 
increased by 4,540 offenses over 1971. Forcible 
rape continues, as in prior years, to comprise less 
than 1 percent of the Crime Index total. It makes 
up nearly 6 percent of the volume of crimes of vio- 
lence. When viewed geographically, the Southern 
States recorded 30 percent of the total volume 
while the Western States had 26 percent, the 
North Central States 25 percent and the North- 
eastern States 18 percent. The balance of 1 percent 
was spread fractionally throughout the Regions. 



A comparison of the month-to-month variations 
of forcible rape in 1972 with the long-term season- 
ally adjusted trend followed the pattern set for 
many years. Chart 14 reflects the month-to-month 
variations of forcible rape during 1972, as well as a 
comparison with the prior average 5-year experi- 
ence. 

Trend 

The volume of forcible rape offenses in 1972 in- 
creased 11 percent over 1971, and 70 percent over 
1967. During 1972, this crime occurred most fre- 
quently in large cities with 250,000 or more inhab- 
itants which accounted for 44 percent of the forcible 
rapes. Forcible rape increased 9 percent in this 
group of cities and 18 percent in the suburban 
areas surrounding the large core cities. The rural 
areas registered a one-tenth of 1 percent decrease. 
Geographically, all regions of the United States 
reported increases in this offense. The North- 
eastern States reported an increase of 19 percent, 
the Western States 13 percent, the North Central 
States 9 percent and the Southern States 6 percent. 

Forcible Rape Rate 

A crime rate, in its proper perspective, is a vic- 
tim risk rate since it equates the number of crimes 
per unit of population. In 1972, 43 out of every 
100,000 females in this country were reported 
rape victims. Since 1967, the forcible rape rate 
has increased 62 percent. In calendar year 1972, 
the forcible rape rate increased 10 percent over 
1971. 

The 58 core cities with populations in excess of 
250,000 experienced a victim risk rate of 92 per 
100,000 females. This is in marked contrast to 
the suburban areas of the country where the risk 
rate for females was 33 per 100,000 and the rural 
area with a risk rate of 21. In the Western States, 
a rate of 66 per 100,000 females was recorded. 
Females residing in the Southern States were vic- 
tims of forcible rape at the rate of 42 per 100,000. 
The North Central and Northeastern States 
recorded rates of 39 and 33 per 100,000 females 
respectively. 

Nature of Offenses 

In 1972, 73 percent of all forcible rape offenses 
were actual rapes by force while the remainder were 
attempts or assaults to commit forcible rape. 
This offense is a violent crime against the person, 
and of all the Crime Index offenses, law enforce- 
ment administrators recognize that this offense

is probably one of the most under-reported crimes 
due primarily to fear and/or embarrassment on 
the part of the victims. As a national average, 
15 percent of all forcible rapes reported to police 
{vere determined by investigation to be un- 
founded. In other words, the police established 
that no forcible rape offense or attempt occurred. 
This is caused primarily due to the question of 
the use or threat of force frequently complicated 
by a prior relationship between victim and offender. 
Crime counts in this publication are limited to 
actual offenses established by police investigation. 

Clearances 

Of the total forcible rapes reported in 1972 to 
law enforcement, 57 percent were cleared by arrest. 
This is a 3 percent increase over the clearance 
rate for 1971. The large cities with 250,000 or 
more people had a clearance rate of 57 percent. 
The suburban areas of the countrj^ reported a 
52 percent rate while the rural areas had a 69 
percent clearance rate. Of the total clearances 
for forcible rape, 12 percent were by the arrest of 
persons under the age of 18. 

Persons Arrested 

The age grouping of males 16 to 23 years of age 
constituted the greatest concentration of arrests 
for forcible rape in 1972. Total arrests for this 
offense increased 14 percent, with the arrest of 
persons under 18 years of age up 11 percent over 
1971. Sixty-three percent of the arrests for forcible 
rape during the year were of persons under the 
age of 25. All arrests for forcible rape in 1972 com- 
pared to 1967 indicate an increase of 47 percent. 
Figures for the same years indicate that arrests of 
persons under 18 years of age have increased 48 
percent. In 1972, over 49 percent of the persons 
arrested for forcible rape were Negroes, nearly 
49 percent whites, and all other races comprised 
the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

Of all adults arrested for forcible rape in 1972, 
73 percent were prosecuted for this offense. Prose- 
cutive problems accounted for acquittals and/or 
dismissals in 49 percent of the cases. Thirty-two 
percent of the adults prosecuted were found guilty 
of the substantive offense and 19 percent were 
convicted of lesser offenses. Juvenile referrals 
amounted to 23 percent of the persons processed 
on forcible rape charges in 1972. 



ROBBERY 

Robbery is a vicious type of crime which takes 
place in the presence of the victim to obtain 
property or a thing of value from a person by use 
of force or threat of force. Assault to commit 
robbery and attempts are included. This is a 
violent crime and frequently results in injury to 
the victim. For crime reporting purposes infor- 
mation concerning robbery is collected for armed 
robbery where any weapon is used, and strong- 
arm robbery where no weapon other than a per- 
sonal weapon, is used. The latter category includes 
crimes such as mugging, yoking, etc. 

Volume 

The volume of estimated robberies decreased 
in 1972 by 11,350 offenses from the prior year. 
There was an estimated total of 374,560 robbery 
offenses committed in the United States in 1972. 
This offense makes up 6 percent of the total 
Crime Index and comprises 45 percent of the 
crimes of violence. In 1972, these offenses occurred 
most frequently during the month of December. 

The heaviest volume of robbery offenses 
occurred in the Northeastern States with 35 per- 
cent of the total. The North Central States 
experienced 25 percent, the Southern States 22 
percent and the remainder were reported in the 
Western States. 

Trend 

When the total robbery offenses occurring in 
1972 is compared with the 1971 total, a 3 percent 
decrease is noted. This is the first such reported 
decrease since 1961. Since 1967, robbery has 
increased 85 percent. 

Large core cities over 250,000 population re- 
ported a 7 percent decrease in robbery offenses 
in 1972 when compared to the reported volume 
in 1971. Suburban areas surroundmg the large 
core cities reported a 9 percent increase while the 
rural areas recorded an upward trend of 1 1 percent. 

Geographically, the Western States experienced 
a 3 percent increase in robbery offenses. The 
Southern States had a 1 percent increase. The 
North Central and Northeastern States reported 
4 and 7 percent decreases respectively. 

The accompanying chart depicts the trend in the 
volume of robbery and the robbery rate, 1967- 
1972. (Chart 8)

Robbery Rate 

The 1972 robbery rate of 180 victims per 
100,000 inhabitants was 4 percent below the 1971 
rate. Robbery is primarily a large city crime. 
American cities with more than 250,000 inhabitants 
accounted for two-thirds of all robberies which 
occurred in the United States during 1972. 

Cities with over 250,000 inhabitants had a 
robbery rate of 579 \'ictims per 100,000 people. 
There were 72 robberj^ victims per 100,000 in the 
suburban areas, up 4 percent over the preceding 
year. The rural areas experienced a rate of 16 
victims per 100,000 people. Robbery rates in the 
larger cities were about eight times greater than 
the rates in the suburban areas. 

This crime occurred most frequently in relation 
to population in the Northeastern States where 
the rate was 264 per 100,000 inhabitants. The 
Western States had a rate of 178, the North 
Central States 165, and the Southern States 130 
per 100,000 people.

Nature of Robbery 

Supplemental robberj- information is obtained 
from cities as a part of the monthly collection of 
statistical data under this Program. In 1972, these 
figures disclosed that half of the robberies were 
committed in the street. Nationallj^, bank robbery 
offenses increased from 2,586 offenses in 1971 to 
2,618 in 1972. The average bank robbery dollar 
loss decreased from $4,463 in 1971 to $3,529 in 
1972. 

The 1967-1972 trends in robbery by type, as 
illustrated by the following charts, show bank 
robbery has increased 51 percent. During this 
same period, gas or service station holdups have 
increased 46 percent; chain store robberies, 138 
percent; street robberies, 81 percent; robberies 
in residences, 108 percent; and holdups of other 
commercial or business establishments rose 57 
percent. 

Ai-med perpetrators were responsible for 66 per- 
cent of the robbery offenses during 1972, while 
34 percent were muggings, yokuigs, or other violent 
confrontation where personal weapons were used 



by the offender to subdue or overcome the victim. 
Since 1967, armed robbery has increased 112 per- 
cent and strong-arm robber}'- 49 percent. 

Special surveys have indicated that approxi- 
mately 63 percent of all armed robbery is com- 
mitted with a firearm, 24 percent with a knife 
or other cutting instrument, and 13 percent with 
blunt objects such as clubs, etc. 

As it has been pointed out in prior issues of 
this publication, the full impact of this violent 
crime on the victim cannot be completely measured 
in terms of dollar loss alone. While the object of 
the attack is money or property, many victims 
of the mugger and the strong-arm robber, as well 
as the armed robber, suffer serious personal in- 
jury as a result of the attack. During 1972, the 
average value loss to the victims of robbery was 
$243 for a total loss of $91 million. 

Clearances 

In 1972, law enforcement agencies were suc- 
cessful in clearing 30 percent of the robbery of- 
fenses reported. Eighty percent of the robberies 
which were cleared by arrest involved adults. 
Arrests of persons under 18 years of age figured 
in the clearance of 13 percent of the armed rob- 
beries and 31 percent of the strong-arm type. 

Persons Arrested 

Nationally, arrests for robbery increased 8 
percent in 1972 when compared to 1971. The 
greatest volume of arrests occurred in cities and 
were up 8 percent. In the rural areas, arrests 
increased 3 percent and in the suburban areas 
arrests decreased less than 1 percent. 

Examination of arrest data discloses that 76 
percent of the persons arrested for robbery were 
under 25 years of age, and 54 percent were imder 
21 years of age. Of all persons arrested for robbery, 
32 percent were under the age of 18. This greater 
proportion of youthful arrests, compared to 
clearances, is accounted for in part by the fact 
the young age offenders frequently act in groups. 
Robbery arrests for this young age group recorded 
an 8 percent increase in 1972 'Over 1971. In the 
suburban areas young persons made up 28 percent 
of the arrests for this offense. The rural areas 
reported young offenders made up 13 percent of 
the total arrests for robbery. 

In 1972, 7 of every 100 persons arrested for 
robbery were females. Arrests of women for this 
offense rose 12 percent in 1972 when compared 
to 1971.

From a standpoint of race, 67 percent of those 
arrested were Negro, 32 percent were white, and 
all other races made up the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

In 1972, 53 percent of all adults arrested for 
robbery were prosecuted. Forty percent of the 
persons processed for tliis crime were juveniles 
whose cases were referred to juvenile court juris- 
diction. Of the adults prosecuted in 1972, 25 
percent were convicted of the substantive offense, 
23 percent were convicted for lesser charges, and 
52 percent were acquitted or their cases were 
dismissed. 

BURGLARY 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program defines 
burglary as the unlawful entry of a structure to 
commit a felony or theft, even though no force 
was used to gain entry. The offense of burglary 
in this Program is broken down into three sub- 
classifications: forcible entry, unlawful entry 
where no force is used, and attempted forcible 
entry. 

Volume 

An estimated total of 2,345,000 burglaries 
occurred during 1972. This was the first decrease 
in estimated total burglaries since 1955. The 
decrease in the number of offenses from 1971 to 
1972 was 23,400. In 1971, the large core cities 
over 250,000 inhabitants recorded 36 percent of 
the total burglary figure. For calendar year 
1972, this decreased to 35 percent. Of the Crime 
Index offenses, burglary makes up 40 percent of 
the total. When viewed as a segment of property 
crime, burglary is found to comprise 46 percent 
of the total. Geographically, the Southern States 
reported 28 percent of the total volume, the 
Western States 26 percent, with the Northeastern 
and North Central States each reporting 23 
percent. 

Viewed monthly the highest volume of burglary 
occurred in July of 1972. 

Trend 

The five year trend, 1967-1972, indicates 
burglary offenses have risen 46 percent during 
the period. In 1972, burglary decreased 1 percent 
from 1971 as compared to an increase of 9 percent 
1971 over 1970. Cities over 250,000 population 
reported a decrease of 7 percent. In 1971, these 
cities experienced an increase of 4 percent in 
volume. In 1972, the suburban and rural areas of 



the nation reported increases of 2 and 4 percent 
respectively. Viewed regionally, the Western States 
reported a 4 percent increase and the Southern 
States a 1 percent increase in burglary offenses. 
The Northeastern States experienced a 7 percent 
decrease and the North Central States a 2 percent 
decrease for this offense. 

Burglary Rate 

The burglary rate in 1972 was 1,126 per 100,000 
inhabitants. During the period of 1967-1972, 
this rate increased 38 percent. The burglary rate 
for 1972 decreased 2 percent when compared 
with 1971. The large core cities with over 250,000 
inhabitants reported a rate of 1,878 burglaries per 
100,000 people compared to 2,026 per 100,000 
people in 1971. The suburban areas experienced a 
decrease in rate from 974 offenses per 100,000 
population in 1971 to 963 in 1972. The rural areas 
recorded a rate of 507 offenses per 100,000 in- 
habitants, which is an increase from 485 the 
previous year. 

The Western (States again recorded the highest 
burglary rate in 1972 with 1,687 offenses per 
100,000 inhabitants followed by the Northeastern 
States with a rate of 1,075, the Southern States 
1,006 and the North Central States 955. 

Nature of Burglary 

Burglary is generally accepted as a crime of 
stealth and opportunity. It is committed by both 
amateurs and professionals. In 1972, 76 percent of 
the burglaries involved forcible entry, 18 percent 
were unlawful entry (without force) and 6 percent 
were recorded as forcible entry attempts. Resi- 
dential burglaries increased from 60 percent 
of the total burglaries in 1971 to 63 percent in 
1972. Nonresidential offenses decreased from 40 
percent in 1971 to 37 percent in 1972. Daytime 
burglaries of residences decreased less than 1 
percent in 1972, however, accounted for over half 
of the residential burglaries. Considering the 
period 1967-1972, there has been an increase 
of 74 percent in the volume of daytime residential 
burglaries. 

Prevention and detection of the burglary 
offense poses a most difficult problem to 
law enforcement. Volume alone is an overriding 
factor, particularly as related to the number of 
officers available for this type investigation. 
Viewed as a group, nighttime burglary represents 
61 percent of all burglaries.

Economically, the offense of burglary represents 
a substantial sum. Victims suffered a loss of $722 
million in 1972 through the offense of burglary; 
however, this is a decrease of about $17 million 
from the 1971 loss. During 1972, residential losses 
amounted to $465 million. In 1971, that loss 
amounted to $457 million. Nonresidential losses 
due to burglaries amounted to $258 million in 
1972 and $282 million in 1971. In 1972, the 
average doUar loss per burglary was $308. 

Clearances 

As suggested earlier, burglary is a crime of 
stealth. This characteristic tends to make the 
detection of the perpetrator more difficult. In 1972, 
law enforcement was successful in clearing 19 
percent of the total burglary offenses. 

Adults were involved in 65 percent of all cases 
cleared while young persons under 18 years of age 
were involved in 35 percent. Law enforcement 
agencies in cities 250,000 and above cleared 21 
percent of these crimes in 1972. In the suburban 
areas 17 percent were solved while 21 percent were 
cleared in the rural areas. 

Persons Arrested 

In this Program, the arrest of one person may 
account for the clearance of numerous offenses. 
Likewise, the arrest of several may clear only one 
offense. In the offense of burglary, it has been the 
experience of law enforcement that the arrest of 
one person frequently clears several reported 
offenses. In 1972, total arrests for burglary de- 
creased by 1 percent. Arrests of persons under the 
age of 18 increased by 1 percent while arrests of 
persons 18 years and over decreased 2 percent. 
In the cities and suburban areas, decreases of 
1 and 8 percent respectively were reported. The 
rural areas experienced a 2 percent increase in 
total arrests for burglary. 

In analyzing the 1967-1972 period, a 26 percent 
increase in burglary arrests is seen. Arrests of 
individuals under the age of 18 increased 22 
percent, while the arrests of adult burglary 
offenders increased 31 percent. 

Nationally, persons under 25 accounted for 83 
percent of all arrests for burglary in 1972. Young 
persons under 18 accounted for 51 percent of 
all arrests for this crime. Females were involved 
in five of every 100 arrests for burglary during 
1972. Arrests of whites outnumbered Negroes 
by 2 to 1. 



Persons Charged 

In 1971, 72 percent of the adults arrested for 
burglary were prosecuted. In 1972 this figure 
rose to 80 percent. Of the adults prosecuted, 
51 percent were found guilty as charged. Con- 
viction for lesser offenses accounted for 18 percent 
and 31 percent were freed through acquittal or 
dismissal of charges. Juveniles referred to juvenile 
court jurisdiction accounted for 53 percent of 
all persons processed for burglary in 1972. 

LARCENY-THEFT 

Larceny-theft is the unlawful taking or stealing 
of property or articles of value without the use of 
force, violence, or fraud. It includes crimes such 
as shoplifting, pocket-picking, purse-snatching, 
thefts from autos, thefts of auto parts and 
accessories, bicycle thefts, etc. In the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program this crime category 
does not include embezzlement, "con" games, 
forgery, and worthless checks. Auto theft, of 
course, is excluded from this category for crime 
reporting purposes inasmuch as it is a separate 
Crime Index offense. 

Volume 

In 1972 there were 1,837,800 offenses of larceny 
$50 and over, which was a decrease from 1,875,200 
such crimes in 1971. This offense makes up 31 per- 
cent of the Crime Index total. From a seasonal 
standpoint, the volume of larceny was highest 
during the summer months of 1972. 

When considering all larceny, $50 and over in 
value and under $50, the number of offenses for 
1972 was 4,101,900. The total larceny offenses 
for 1971 was 4,371,700. The 1972 total larceny 
figure decreased 6 percent from 1971. 

Geographically, the volume of larceny $50 and 
over was highest in the Southern States which re- 
ported 27 percent of the total number followed by 
the Western States with 26 percent, the North 
Central States with 25 percent, and the North- 
eastern States with 21 percent. 

Trend 

Larceny $50 and over decreased 2 percent in 
1972 when compared to the previous year. The 
large cities with 250,000 inhabitants reported a 
decrease of 1 1 percent in the volume of this offense. 
The suburban areas reported a 1 percent increase 
in this offense and the rural areas showed a 5 per- 
cent increase. Nationwide tMs offense has in- 
creased 75 percent since 1967. 



21 



Geographically, the Western States reported a 
1 percent increase and the Northeastern States 
reported a 9 percent decrease. The North Central 
and the Southern States recorded decreases of 
less than 1 percent. 

Larceny Rate 

During 1972, the larceny crime rate was 883 
offenses per 100,000 inhabitants, a decrease of .3 
percent from the 1971 rate. The rate has increased 
66 percent since 1967. In 1972, the large core 
cities registered a larceny rate of 1,105 per 100,000 
inhabitants. The suburban larceny rate was 890 
and the rural rate was 364. Viewed geographically, 
the Western States reported the highest larceny 
rate with 1,350 oiTenses per 100,000 inhabitants 
which was 1 percent below 1971. The Northeastern 
States had a rate of 775 down 10 percent; the 
North Central States 808 down 1 percent, and 
the Southern States 771 reported a decrease of 2 
percent in the rate. 

Nature of Larceny-Theft 

The average value of property stolen in each 
larceny in 1972 was $111, up from $95 in 1967, 
and $74 in 1960. This average value includes losses 
from the large number of thefts under $50 in 
value. When average value is applied to the esti- 
mated crimes in this category, the dollar loss to 
victims was in excess of $475 million. It is true 
that a portion of the goods stolen was recovered 
and returned to victims, but the relatively low 
percentage of these crimes cleared by arrest, and 
the lack of specific identification characteristics on 
such property indicates these recoveries did not 
materially reduce the overall loss. In addition, 
many offenses in this category, particularly where 
the value of the stolen goods is small, never come 
to police attention. 

In 1972, the average value of goods and property 
reported stolen from victims of pickpockets was 
$98, by purse-snatchers $53, by shoplifters $25, 
by thefts from autos $149, and by miscellaneous 
thefts from buildings $187. 

The accompanying table presents distribution of 
larceny by type for large cities, suburban, and 
rural areas. Cities and suburban areas appear to 
have similar experience except for pocket-picking 
and purse-snatching which are considerably less 
in the suburban areas. This, of course, is to be 
expected as these theft opportunities flourish where 
population and business houses are highly con- 
centrated. It is interesting to note that figures for 



shopUfting are quite similar in the city and subur- 
ban areas. The shopping center which is almost 
nonexistent in rural areas contributes substantially 
to these figures. Thefts from autos made up 19 
percent of larceny offenses in large cities over 
250,000 in population, 16 percent in suburban 
areas, and 15 percent in rural areas. 

From year to year, the distribution of larceny 
as to type of theft remains relatively constant. 
As in prior years, a major portion of these thefts , 
35 percent, represented thefts of auto parts an d 
accessories and other thefts from automobiles . 
Other major types of thefts which contributed 
to the large number of these crimes were thefts 
from buildings and stolen bicycles with 17 percent 
each. Miscellaneous types of larcenies, not falling 
into any of the specific categories for which data 
were collected, made up 16 percent of the total. 
The remainder was distributed among pocket- 
picking, purse-snatching, shopUfting, and thefts 
from coin-operated machines.

Clearances 

The nature of larceny, a crime of opportunity, 
sneak thievery, and petty unobserved thefts, 
makes it an extremely difficult offense for law 
enforcement officers to solve. A lack of witnesses 
and the tremendous volume of these crimes work 
in the offender's favor. In 1972, 20 percent of all 
larceny offenses brought to police attention were 
solved. Involvement of the young age group is 
demonstrated by the fact that 40 percent of these 
crimes which were cleared in the Nation's cities 
were solved by arrest of persons under 18 years 
of age. Juvenile clearance figures for suburban

areas and rural areas were 42 percent and 27 
percent respectively. 

The larceny clearance percentage for the cities 
over 250,000 inhabitants was 21 percent. The 
suburbs reported a 16 percent clearance rate and 
the rural areas an 18 percent rate. 

Persons Arrested 

Forty-eight percent of the total arrests for 
Crime Index offenses in 1972 were for larceny. 
Arrests for this crime increased less than 1 percent, 
1972 over 1971. Fifty percent cf these arrests were 
of persons under 18 years of age and when in- 
dividuals under 21 were considered, the ratio rose 
to two-thirds. When examined by sex of arrested 
persons, it was determined that females comprised 

30 percent of all arrests for larceny- theft and had 
a higher involvement in this offense than for any 
of the other Index offenses. In fact, women were ar- 
rested more often for larceny than any other offense 
in 1972. 

Arrests of females rose 6 percent in 1972; while 
arrests of males decreased 2 percent. Arrests of 
whites out-numbered Negroes by more than 2 to 
1 with all other races comprising about 2 percent 
of the arrests for larceny- theft. The total volume 
of arrests for larceny-theft in 1972, as compared 
with the 1967 figures, indicates a 44 percent 
increase. Arrests of individuals under 18 were 

31 percent greater than 1967. The number of 
adult arrests rose 61 percent over the number 
of arrests for this offense in 1967. 

Persons Charged 

As in prior years, law enforcement agencies 
nationally charged more than twice as many 
offenders for larceny-theft than for any other 
Crime Index offense. Seventy percent of the adults 
prosecuted for larceny-theft were found guilty of 
this offense, 6 percent were found guilty of a 
lesser charge, and 24 percent had their cases 
dismissed or were acquitted. Twenty-nine percent 
of persons processed in 1972 for larceny were 
referred to juvenile court jurisdiction. 

AUTO THEFT 

In Uniform Crime Reporting, auto theft is 
defined as the unlawful taking or steaUng of a 
motor vehicle, including attempts. This definition 
excludes taking for temporary use by those persons 
having lawful access to the vehicle. 



Volume 

In 1972, 881,000 motor vehicles were reported 
stolen. This is a 6 percent decrease compared to 

1971 when 941,600 motor vehicles were reported 
stolen. 

Geographically, the volume of auto theft in 

1972 was highest in the Northeastern States 
which reported 31 percent of the total number 
followed by the North Central States with 25 
percent. The Western States reported 23 percent 
and the Southern States reported the remainder. 
This crime made up 15 percent of the total 
Crime Index offense volume. Seasonal variations 
during 1972 disclosed the volume of auto theft 
was highest during the month of September. 

Trend 

The number of auto thefts in 1972 decreased 
6 percent compared to 1971. The number of auto 
thefts has increased 34 percent since 1967. 

Auto theft decreased 11 percent in large cities 
with 250,000 or more inhabitants during 1972. 
The rural areas reported a decrease of 3 percent 
in auto theft while the suburban areas had a 
decrease of less than one percent. 

Geographically, auto thefts were down 10 
percent in the Northeastern States, the Southern 
and North Central States each reported a decrease 
of 6 percent, and the Western States reported a 
decrease of 3 percent. The accompanying chart 
shows the trend in auto thefts, 1967-1972. 

Auto Theft Rate 

The 1972 auto theft rate of 423 offenses per 
100,000 inhabitants is 7 percent lower than in 
1971. Since 1967, the auto theft rate has risen 28 
percent. People in cities with over one million 
population were deprived more often of their 
motor vehicles in 1972 than in any other popula- 
tion group, with 10 thefts per 1,000 inhabitants. 

Nationally, the auto theft rate in large core 
cities with 250,000 or more inhabitants was 967 
which was a decrease of 12 percent as compared 
to the rate in 1971. The suburban areas had a 
decrease of 6 percent in the auto theft rate which 
was 288 per 100,000 inhabitants in 1972. The 
rural areas had an auto theft rate of 70, which 
was the same as in 1971. 

Regionally the Western States had the highest 
auto theft rate in 1972. This rate was 555, a de- 
crease of 4 percent from 1971. The Northeastern 
States had a rate of 541 per 100,000 inhabitants

which was a decrease of 10 percent. The North 
Central States had a rate of 383 which was 6 per- 
cent lower than the prior year and the Southern 
States reported a decrease of 7 percent in the auto 
theft rate to 295 auto thefts per 100,000 
inhabitants. 

Across the Nation in 1972, one of every 109 
registered automobiles was stolen. Regionally, 
this rate was the highest in the Northeastern 
States where 13 cars per 1,000 registered vehicles 
were stolen. In the other three regions the figures 
were 11 in the Western States, 8 in the North 
Central States, and 6 in the Southern States. 

Nature of Auto Theft 

Auto theft rates again clearly indicate that this 
crime is primarily a large city problem, since the 
highest rates appear in the most heavily populated 
sections of the Nation. In 1972, the average value 
of stolen automobiles was $936 at the time of 
theft. 

Clearances 

Law enforcement agencies were successful in 
solving 17 percent of the auto thefts by arrest 
of the oflFender. 

In the Nation's largest cities 17 percent of auto 
thefts were cleared during 1972. Police in the 
suburban areas were somewhat less successful, 
clearing 16 percent. Throughout the Nation auto 
theft clearance percentages ranged from 12 percent 
in the Middle Atlantic States to over 20 percent 
in the South Atlantic 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 through the arrest 
of persons under 18 years of age. In the large 
core cities, 37 percent of the auto thefts cleared were 
cleared by arrests in this age group while juveniles 
accounted for 39 percent of the solutions in the 
suburbs and 34 percent in the rural areas. 

Persons Arrested 

As in prior years, persons arrested for auto 
theft come primarily from the young age group 
population. In 1972, 54 percent of all persons 
arrested for this crime were under 18 years of 
age. When persons under 21 are included in the 
computations, the proportion of arrests rises to 
72 percent. 

The national trend in auto theft arrests dis- 
closed a decrease of nearly 6 percent in 1972 



when compared to 1971. Adult arrests decreased 
8 percent while arrests of persons under 18 
decreased 4 percent. During the period 1967-1972, 
auto theft arrests increased 2 percent. 

Females under 18 j^ears of age recorded an 
increase of nearly 5 percent in arrests for auto 
theft over 1971. White persons made up 63 
percent of the arrests for auto theft, Negroes 
34 percent, and all other races accounted for the 
remainder. 

Persons Charged 

Police reports disclosed that of all persons 
formally processed for auto theft in 1972, 60 
percent were referred to juvenile court juris- 
diction. 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, 46 percent of those prosecuted 
on charges of auto theft were found guilty as 
charged, 15 percent were convicted of lesser 
charges, and 39 percent were acquitted or their 
cases were dismissed. 

NCIC Stolen Vehicle File 

The National Crime Information Center (NCIC) 
is a computerized system operated by the FBI 
servicing all law enforcement throughout the 
United States. The NCIC system's stolen 
vehicle file provides law enforcement with the 
ability to immediately enter the auto theft record 
information. The police also have the ability to 
immediately modify the record when the stolen 
vehicle is recovered. The system currently has on 
file some 825,000 active stolen vehicle records. 

A review of the auto theft data entered in the 
NCIC system for November, 1972, shows there 
was a total of 67,565 vehicle records entered. 
When reviewing this monthly total by type of 
vehicle it was determined automobiles made up 
90 percent of these records, motorcycles 4 percent, 
trucks approximately 5 percent, and other motor 
vehicles less than 1 percent. 

Of the stolen autos entered in the system during 
November, 1972, 69 percent were recovered by 
law enforcement by December 31, 1972. During 
the same period 56 percent of the trucks, 25 
percent of motorcyles, and 22 percent of the other 
motor vehicles were recovered. 

According to the stolen motor vehicle records in 
NCIC, the 1964 model year automobile is cur- 
rently the one which is most frequently stolen.

CLEARANCES 

In this Program police clear a crime when they 
have identified the offender, have sufficient 
evidence to charge him, and actually take him 
into custody. Crime solutions are also recorded in 
exceptional instances when some element beyond 
police control precludes the placing of formal 
charges against the offender, such as the victim's 
refusal to prosecute after the offender is identified 
or local prosecution is declined because the sub- 
ject 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. 

Law enforcement agencies in the Nation cleared 
21 percent of the Index Crimes during 1972 com- 
pared with 20 percent in 1971 . In 1972 law enforce- 
ment agencies cleared 82 percent of the murder 
offenses down from 84 percent in 1971, 57 percent 
of forcible rapes compared with 55 percent the 
prior year, 66 percent of aggravated assaults 
which is the same level as 1971, and 30 percent 
of the robberies up from 27 percent the prior 
year. Solutions in the property crime categories 
showed police cleared 19 percent of the burglaries 
in 1972 and 1971, 20 percent of the larcenies 
were cleared compared with 19 percent the prior 
year, and 17 percent of the auto thefts up from 
16 percent in 1971. Police are able to clear a 
higher percentage of the crimes against the 
person, not only because of the more intense 
investigative effort afforded these violent crimes 
requiring police attention, but more importantly, 
because witnesses are usually available who can 
identify the perpetrators. 

The highest overall Crime Index clearance rate 
regionally was recorded by the Southern States 
with 23 percent, followed by the North Central 
and Western States with 20 percent each, and the 
Northeastern States with 18 percent. 

The accompanying chart reveals crime and po- 
lice clearance experience for the last five years. 
From 1967 to 1972 the Crime Index offenses rose 
55 percent. Police response to this upward trend 
was a 42 percent increase in the number of Crime 
Index Offenses cleared and a 33 percent increase 
in the number of arrests for Crime Index offenses. 
However, the clearance rate, which relates the 
number of known offenses cleared, has declined. 
Although the clearance rate for Crime Index type 



offenses has declined from 22 of every 100 in 1967 
to a rate of 21 of every 100 in 1972, there was an 
increase in the clearance rate in 1972 over 1971. 
In 1971 the clearance rate was 20 for each 100 
Crime Index offenses. 

Offenses Cleared by Arrest of Juveniles 

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 1972, 
27 percent of all Crime Index offenses solved 
involved persons under 18 years of age, while 
persons 10 to 17 years of age account for about 16 
percent of the total United States population. 

PERSONS ARRESTED 

In 1972, law enforcement agencies made an 
estimated 8.7 million arrests nationally for all 
criminal acts except traffic offenses. The arrest 
rate was 43 arrests for each 1,000 persons. In 1971, 
there were 44 arrests for each 1,000 inhabitants. 
The arrest rate for big cities as a group was 63 per 
1,000 inhabitants, up from 61 in 1971 ; for suburban 
areas 32, down from 33 in the prior year; and in 
the rural areas the arrest rate was 21, down from 
22 arrests per 1,000 people in 1971. 

Arrests are primarily a measure of police ac- 
tivity. Arrest practices, policies, and enforcement 
emphasis will vary from place to place and within 
a community from time to time. The volume of 
police arrests for certain unlawful conduct such as 
drunkemiess, 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 police activity as it relates to crime. Arrests do, 
however, provide a useful index to indicate in- 
volvement in criminal acts by the age, sex, and 
race of the perpetrators, particularly for those 
crimes which have a high solution rate. Procedures 
used m 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 number of indi\'iduals taken 
into custodj^ 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 drunkenness, vagrancy, dis- 
orderly conduct, and related violations.

Arrest Trends 

In 1972, police arrests for all offenses except 
traffic increased seven-tenths of 1 percent over 
1971. During this time arrests of persons under 
18 years of age increased eight-tenths of one per- 
cent and arrests of persons 18 years of age and 
over increased seven-tenths of one percent. When 
only the serious crimes are used to compute this 
trend, the increase was two-tenths of one percent 
for persons under 18 years of age and 2 percent 
for those 18 years of age and over, with an increase 
of 1.1 percent for all ages. 

During the five-year period, 1967-1972, poUce 
arrests for all offenses, except traffic, increased 
21 percent with the arrests of persons under 18 
years of age up 28 percent and the arrests of 
persons 18 years of age and over up 19 percent. 
When only the Crime Index offenses are used in 
computing this five-year trend, the increase was 
36 percent. Arrested persons under 18 years of 
age increased 25 percent while the adult arrests 
increased 47 percent. Violent crime arrests for 
persons under 18 years of age increased 60 percent 
while the property crime arrests increased 22 per- 
cent. Adult arrests for both violent and property 
crimes were up 47 percent each. 

Age 

Nationally, persons under 15 years of age made 
up 9 percent of the total police arrests; under 18, 
26 percent; under 21, 39 percent; and under 25, 
53 percent. In the suburban areas, the involve- 
ment of the young age groups hi police arrests is 
again markedly higher than the national figures 
with the under 15 age group represented in 12 
percent; under 18, 33 percent; under 21, 49 per- 
cent; and under 25, 62 percent. In the rural areas 
the distributions were lower for the younger age 
groups, with the under 15 group being involved in 
5 percent; under 18 in 18 percent; under 21 in 35 
percent; and those under 25 in 51 percent of total 
police arrests. When .only the serious crimes are 
considered, 19 percent of all arrests in 1972 were 
for persons under the age of 15 and 44 percent 
were under 18 years of age. 

In reviewing arrest figures, it is important to 
keep in mind that police arrest practices and 
emphases vary which account for some variations 
in these statistics from year to year. It is noted 
arrests of persons under 18 years of age for Nar- 
cotic Drug Law violations have increased sharply 
in recent years. In fact, in 1972, 53 percent of the 



individuals arrested for violations of the Narcotic 
Drug Laws were persons under 21 years of age. 
Twenty-eight percent of the marijuana arrests in 
1972 were persons under the age of 18 and 62 per- 
cent of the arrests for this offense involved persons 
under 21 years of age. 

Arrests for Narcotic Drug Law violations 1972 
over 1971 were up 7 percent nationally. From 
1967 to 1972, arrests for this violation increased 
291 percent. There is set forth a tabulation by 
geographic region showing the type of narcotic 
drug involved in the arrest of the offender in 
1972.

Male arrests outnumbered female arrests by 
almost 6 to 1 in 1972. Male arrests in 1972 rose by 
one-half of 1 percent, while female arrests were up 
2 percent. Eighteen percent of arrests for Crime 
Index offenses were of female persons. Ten percent 
of the arrests for violent crimes in 1972 involved 
females and arrests of females for these types of 
crimes increased 9 percent over 1971. Again, as in 
prior years, their involvement was primarily for 
larceny which accounted for 19 percent of all 
female arrests. In fact, 20 percent of all property 
crime arrests in 1972 were of females. Females 
accounted for 25 percent of the forgery, 30 percent 
of the fraud, 26 percent of the embezzlement, and 
15 percent of the narcotics arrests. Over one-half 
of the runaway — poUce custody cases — were girls 
under 18 years of age. 

The five-year arrest trends, 1967-1972, revealed 
that arrests for young females under 18 years of 
age increased 62 percent, while arrests for young 
males under 18 rose 21 percent. When the serious 
crimes as a group are considered, arrests of 
males 1967-1972, were up 18 percent and female 
arrests increased 72 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 informa- 
tion is important to the law enforcement adminis- 
trator in evaluating the quality of investigations 
and court presentation functions. 

In 1972, 83 percent of the adults arrested for 
Crime Index type offenses were prosecuted in the 
courts. Of the adults prosecuted for Crime Index 
offenses, 59 percent were found guilty as charged 
and 12 percent of a lesser charge. 

It must be recognized that not all arrested 
persons are turned over to the courts for prosecu- 
tion. There are various reasons for this: failure of 
the victim to cooperate or appear for the prosecu- 
tion, 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 en- 
forcement agencies without preferring a formal 
charge or referring them directly to juvenile 
authorities. All contributors to this Program are 
urged to obtain and report final disposition in 
cases involving persons they arrest. Tables con- 
taming this data commence on page 116. Keep in 
mind that police methods of handling juvenile 
offenders differ widely from place to place. Also, 
the tables concerning juveniles (local age limit) 
refer to those who were arrested and turned over 
to juvenile authorities in coimection with specific 
criminal acts. 



Thirty-seven percent of the persons processed for 
the Crime Index categories were young persons 
referred to juvenile court jurisdiction. Again, as in 
prior years, juvenile referrals were highest for auto 
theft with 60 percent of those processed for this 
offense, 53 percent burglary, 40 percent robbery, 
29 percent larceny, 23 percent forcible rape, 19 
percent aggravated assault, and 1 1 percent murder. 

During 1972, as in past years, auto theft, arson, 
burglary, 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 agains t pub- 
lic order and decency — driving under the influence, 
drunkenness, disorderly conduct, and vagrancy. 
As in prior years, offenses against trust, such as 
fraud and embezzlement, also recorded a high 
percentage of conviction on original charges. 

Of the adults who were prosecuted for Crime 
Index offenses, 30 percent were acquitted or their 
cases were dismissed. In 1972, 36 percent of the 
murder defendants were either acquitted or their 
cases dismissed at some prosecutive stage. Forty- 
nine percent of those charged with forcible rape 
were acquitted or had their cases dismissed, and 
41 percent of the persons charged with aggravated 
assault won their freedom through acquittal or 
dismissal. 

Larceny, 70 percent, recorded the highest per- 
centage for persons found guilty on the original 
charge in 1972. This was followed by 51 percent 
on the original charge for burglary, 46 percent for 
auto theft, 41 percent for murder and aggravated 
assault, 32 percent for forcible rape, and 25 per- 
cent for robbery. The offense which had the highest 
percentage guilty of a lesser charge was murder 
where 23 percent of the defendants were convicted 
on some charge other than murder. 

CAREERS IN CRIME 

In January, 1970, the FBI began converting 
offender records to computer form for the opera- 
tional Computerized Criminal History File of the 
National Crime Information Center. Although this 
is an operational program, it was designed and 
established with full recognition of the statistical 
and research potential of offender based data. 

From January, 1963, through December, 1969, 
the Uniform Crime Reporting Program processed 
criminal history data on some 240,000 offenders 
for statistical use. This study was used to docu- 
ment the extent to which criminal recidivism 



35 



over a period of time contributes to annual crime 
counts and has also been used to show the need 
for the centralization of law enforcement infor- 
mation at the state and national level in view of 
criminal repeating and mobiUty. This offender 
based study was made possible by the cooperative 
exchange of criminal fingerprint data among 
local, state, and Federal law enforcement agencies. 
While the basis of selection in this study was a 
Federal offense, it should be kept in mind that 
most Federal criminal violations axe also violations 
of local and state laws. The offender transaction 
records examined in this study are, therefore, 
believed to be similar to the local and state ex- 
perience for the more serious violators. 

The Careers in Crime study brought to the Uni- 
form Crime Reporting Program valuable statis- 
tical experience in the field of criminal histories, 
and has demonstrated the use of offender based 
transaction information to indicate the success or 
failure of the entire criminal justice system. The 
key to the effectiveness of the system is in know- 
ing what happened to the people who were handled 
or treated by the criminal justice process, specifi- 
cally, whether they were deterred from further 
criminal acts and/or rehabilitated. 

A summary of 228,032 offenders in the Comput- 
erized Criminal History file who were arrested 
during the period 1970-1972 is set out in the 
following tables. Of these 228,032 individuals, 
148,809 (65 percent) had been arrested two or 
more times. These individuals had an average 
criminal career of four years and eleven months 
(number of years between first and last arrest) 
during which time they were arrested an average 
of four times each. The 228,032 offenders had a 
total of 867,000 documented charges during their 
criminal careers, with 244,329 reported convic- 
tions and 87,358 imprisonments of six months or 
more. 

Of the 148,809 repeat offenders, 65,793 or 44 
percent were rearrested in states other than that 
where first arrested. Of the 65,793 "mobile" of- 
fenders, 13,401 were arrested in a total of three 
different states and 10,459 were an-ested in four 
or more different states. 

It should be kept in mind that this presentation 
is conservative and understates the amount of 
crime committed by these offenders since it is 
based on pohce detection, arrest, and submission 
of a fingerprint card. As indicated in earlier pages 
of this pubUcation, law enforcement agencies do 



not clear or solve most crimes. Only one-fifth of 
the serious crimes committed during 1972 were 
solved by arrest. It is also true that the prior 
conviction and imprisonment rates are slightly 
lower than actual because criminal justice agencies 
do not always submit such data after arrest, con- 
viction, and release. In fact, disposition data has 
not been received on over 484,000 of the 867,000 
charges. 

A profile of criminal repeating for selected of- 
fenders is shown in the following table. Average 
age for the first arrest is high because of the 
general practice not to submit criminal fingerprint 
cards on juveniles. Criminal career is the average 
years between the first and last arrest. 

The offender profile is classified by type of 
crime for which last arrested during the 1970's. 

When criminal repeating is viewed by type of 
crime for which arrested in the 1970's, repeaters 
ranged from 34 percent for the embezzler to 77 
percent for the robber. The predatory crime of- 
fenders had high repeat rates with 77 percent of 
the robbers, 73 percent of the auto thieves, and 
71 percent of the burglars arrested between 1970- 
1972 being repeat offenders. Likewise, 60 percent 
of the narcotic offenders were repeaters. 

Forty-three percent of the offenders under 20 
years of age who were arrested between 1970- 
1972 were repeat offenders. Offenders under 20 
were rearrested more frequently than any other 
age group, with an arrest every three months. 
The arrest rate for the other age groups were: 
20-24 years, every six months; 25-29 years, every 
eleven months; 30-34 years, every 16 months; 
35-39 years, every 21 months; 40-49 years, every 
27 months; and over 50 years of age, once every 
39 months. 

A study was made of 50,363 repeat offenders 
who were arrested during 1972. These repeat of- 
fenders had 89,252 arrests prior to their arrest in 
1972 for a total of 139,615 arrests during their 
criminal careers. Of their 89,252 prior arrests, 
49,212 were in some state other than that in 
which arrested during 1972. Table C lists the 
mobility of these repeat offenders. 

Follow-up Studies 

In past years, under the Careers in Crime 
Program, follow-up studies were conducted con- 
cerning persons reported released from the Federal 
criminal justice system in a given year. Considera- 
tion will be given to continuing the follow-up

LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE DATA 

This publication has a section with tables of 
Law Enforcement Employee Data which shows 
average police employee strength by geographic 
division and population group. This data is sub- 
divided by sex of employees with percentage of 
civilian employees, number and type of patrol 
assignments, and an individualized listing of police 
employees by reporting cities and surrounding 
suburban counties. Tables containing data relative 
to law enforcement oflScers killed and assaulted 
in the line of duty are published to supplement 
the following narrative material. 

Employee Rates 

In 1972, the average number of police employees 
per 1,000 inhabitants (including civilian employ- 
ees) remained at 2.4, unchanged from the 1971 
rate. Male employees represented 91.4 percent 
of total police employee strength. 

Many United States cities continue to operate 
with a police employee ratio of less than the 
national average of 2.4 per 1,000. Fifty percent 
of all law enforcement agencies have police ratios 
ranging from 1.4 to 2.3 police employees per 1,000 
inhabitants. 

Nationally, large cities with 250,000 or more 
inhabitants as a group had an average ratio of .3.. 3 
employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 

The average ratio of police employees to popu- 
lation in the suburban areas was 1.8 per 1,000 
inhabitants, the same as 1971. One -half of the 
suburban police departments have from 1.2 to 
2.2 employees per 1,000 inhabitants. The average 



39 



rate of full-time employees in sheriff's departments 
was 1.3 per 1,000 iahabitants; however, in three- 
fourths of the departments the rate was 1.1 or 
less. 

Police departments in the Middle Atlantic and 
South Atlantic States have the highest average 
rate with 2.8 employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 
Cities in the West South Central States had the 
lowest average ratio with 1.9. 

Civilian Employeei 

In Table 60 the percentage of total law enforce- 
ment personnel represented by civilian employees 
is tabulated by population group. On the average 
during 1972, 13.3 percent of all city police per- 
sonnel were civilian employees. Of all civilian 
employees, 55 percent were female and 45 percent 
were male personnel. Law enforcement adminis- 
trators are continuing to utilize greater numbers 
of civilian employees, thereby relieving sworn 
personnel for active police duties. 

Sworn Personnel 

Law enforcement employee rates on the basis of 
sworn personnel only (excluding civilian employ- 
ees) show that the average for all cities was 2.0 
in 1972, compared to the 1971 rate of 2.1 per 
1,000 inhabitants. The city rates, nationally, 
range from 0.1 to 9.6 per 1,000 inhabitants. In 
cities, males represented 99 percent of all sworn 
personnel, while in suburban agencies males 
constituted 97 percent and in county sheriff and 
police departments 94 percent. The average ratio 
of sworn employees in sheriff's departments was 1 .0 
per 1,000 inhabitants and the rate range for the 
2,559 reporting county agencies was 0.1-9.4 per 
1,000 inhabitants. Caution should be exercised, 
however, in using rates for comparative purposes 
since there is a wide variation in the responsibilities 
of various law enforcement agencies throughout 
the country. Just as the conditions which affect the 
amount and type of crime that occurs vary from 
place to place, so do the requirements for types of 
police service based upon the conditions which 
exist in a given community. For example, the in- 
creased need for police service in a community 
which has a highly mobile or seasonal population, 
differs from a community which has a relatively 
stable or fixed population. In addition, a small 
community situated between two large cities may 
require a greater number of law enforcement 
personnel to handle crime conditions based 
solely on its geographic location. 



The functions of the sheriffs also vary widely in 
different sections of the country. In certain areas 
the sheriffs' responsibiUties are limited almost 
exclusively to civil functions and/or the adminis- 
tration of the county jail facilities. The sheriffs' 
departments used in computing rates, however, 
are all engaged in police activity and are responsi- 
ble for all phases of poUcing in their jurisdiction. 

It is pointed out that the figures set forth in 
detailed police employee tables (Tables 54 and 
55) represent national averages. They should be 
used as a guide or indicator and not considered as 
recommended or desirable police strengths. 
Adequate 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 Patrols 

In 1972, 89 percent of the patrols utilized in 
cities were vehicle patrols, and 11 percent were 
foot patrols. In cities with over 250,000 inhabitants 
88 percent were vehicle patrols and 12 percent were 
foot patrols. In the areas covered by sheriff's and 
county police departments, 94 percent were 
vehicle patrols and 6 percent were foot patrols. 
For all cities, patrol distribution indicated that 
34 percent of the patrol activity was during the 
day, 35 percent during the evening hours, and 
after midnight 31 percent. For large cities with 
over 250,000 inhabitants, 34 percent of the patrol 
activity was during the day, 38 percent during 
the evening hours, and 28 percent after midnight. 
In the areas covered by sheriff's and county poUce, 
39 percent of the patrol activity was during the 
day, 32 percent during the evening hours, and 29 
percent after midnight. 

The distribution of one and two man vehicle 
patrols for all cities indicated that 84 percent of 
the vehicle patrols during the day involved one 
man cars, 73 percent during the evening hours, 
and after midnight 72 percent. In the large cities 
with 250,000 or more inhabitants, 64 percent of 
the daytime patrols involved the use of one man 
cars, 50 percent during the evening hours, and 
after midnight 52 percent. In the areas covered by 
sheriffs' and county poUce departments, 92 per- 
cent of the daytime patrols involved the use of 
one man cars, 80 percent during the evening hours, 
and after midnight 76 percent were one man 
vehicles.

State Police and State Highway Patrols 

There were 57,908 employees in State Police 
and State Highway Patrol organizations in 1972. 
This was an increase of one percent over 1971. 
Of the total employees, 73 percent were sworn 
personnel and 15,429 or 27 percent, were civilian 
employees. 

The police employee strengths of State Police 
and State Highway Patrol organizations are set 
forth in Table 70. This table provides additional 
data relative to the miles of primary highway and 
the number of state motor vehicle registrations 
per sworn employee by state. 

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 

A total of 112 local, county, and state law en- 
forcement officers were killed due to felonious 
criminal action in 1972. This number is less than 
the 1971 figure when 126 law enforcement officers 
were slain. During the ten-year period, 1963-1972, 
786 officers were killed. The average number of 
law enforcement officers slain was 79 a year during 
the period 1963-1972. Specifically, there were 55 
officers killed in 1963; 57 in 1964; 53 in 1965; 
57 in 1966; 76 in 1967; 64 in 1968; 86 in 1969; 
100 in 1970; 126 in 1971; and 112 in 1972. 

Circumstances Surrounding Deaths 

Examination of circumstances under which 
police officers were slain in 1972, continues to 
disclose a most urgent need for officers to be more 
alert in connection with all their duties, regardless 
of how routine these duties may seem or have been 
in the past. It is essential that officers be extremely 
alert with all individuals they contact. No arrest 
situation can be considered routine, as evidenced 
by the fact that during the period 1963-1972 more 
officers were killed attempting arrests than in any 
other matter. During 1972, 24 officers were killed 
while attempting arrest for crimes other than 
robbery or burglary. Twenty-five officers were 
slain by persons they encountered during the 
commission of a robbery, or who they were pur- 
suing as robbery suspects. In connection with the 
crime of burglary, nine officers were killed at the 
scenes of burglaries or while pursuing burglary 
suspects. 

During the period 1968-1972, 63 officers were 
slain from ambush. Fourteen of the officers were 
slain in 1972, 20 in 1971, 19 in 1970, three in 1969, 
and seven in 1968. In 1972, two officers were slain 
by mentally deranged persons. During the period 



1963-1972 a total of 36 officers were killed by 
mentally deranged persons. 

Fourteen officers were slain while making 
traffic stops in 1972. Five officers were murdered 
while investigating suspicious persons or cir- 
cumstances and 15 were killed responding to 
"disturbance calls" involving such things as 
family quarrels, man with gun, etc. Two officers 
were slain while they were transporting or other- 
wise engaged in custody of prisoners and two 
were killed while handling civil disorders. 

In 1972, 45 of the officers slain utilized their serv- 
ice firearms when confronted by their assailants. 
Thirty-two of these officers fired their service 
firearms while attempting to protect themselves. 
Fifty-four percent (or 61) of the officers were 
within five feet of their assailants when slain. 
Twenty-five officers were six to ten feet from the 
offenders when they were killed. In summary, 86 
of the 112 officers slain were within ten feet of 
their assailants when they were killed. 

In 1972, 57 officers were slain in the Southern 
States, 30 in the North Central States, 14 in the 
Northeastern States, and eleven in the Western 
States. The following chart shows the number of 
law enforcement officers killed by region for each 
of the two five-year periods, 1963-1967 and 1968- 
1972. 



W, 



e a pons 



Used 



One hundred eight of the police killings in 1972 
were perpetrated through use of firearms. Of 
these deaths, 74 were committed through the use 
of handguns, 16 with rifles, and shotguns were 
used to kill 18 of the officers. Fifteen percent 
(or 17) of the officers slain had their own weapons 
used against them by the assailants. Two police- 
men met death as a result of being assaulted with 
knives, while one officer was killed through the 
use of a bomb. One officer was feloniously killed 
through the use of an automobile while attempt- 
ing to arrest the offender. 

During the period 1963-1972, firearms were 
used by felons to commit 96 percent of the 
police killings. Seventy-three percent of the wea- 
pons used were handguns. Specifically, of the 786 
law enforcement officers slain by criminal action 
during this period, 572 were killed through use of 
handguns, 93 with shotguns, 86 with rifles, nine 
with knives, three with bombs, nine with personal 
weapons such as hands, fists, and feet, and 14 
by other means such as clubs, automobiles, etc.

A total of 108 officers, or 14 percent, were slain 
with their own handguns. 

An accompanying table shows the type of 
weapons used to kill officers from 1963 through 
1972. 

Profile of Victim Officers 

During the period 1963-1967, 87 percent of the 
officers were white and 11 percent were Negro. 
The median years of service was five and one- 
half. Thirteen percent of the victim officers had 
one year or less of service. Forty-two percent had 
less than five years of service, 28 percent had 
five to ten years of service, and 30 percent had 
more than ten years. 

During the period 1968-1972, 86 percent of the 
victims were white and 13 percent were Negro. 
The median years of service was five. Fifteen 
percent of the victims had one year or less of 
service, 48 percent had less than five years of 



constitutes a threat to the officer's personal safety. 
The patrol officer is readily identifiable because 
of his uniform and/or patrol vehicle. He cannot 
hide his presence or official capacity, and fre- 
quently must determine quickly and accurately if 
a person is involved in a criminal act, and if that 
person constitutes a danger to his, the officer's, 
personal safety. The patrol officer must react to 
situations as they occur without the benefit of

Negro. The median years of service for the entire 
period was five. Fourteen percent had one year 
or less service, 45 percent had less than five years

29 percent had over ten years of service. 
Types of Assignment 

Officers who are assigned patrol duties within 
law enforcement organizations have the most haz- 
ardous type of assignment. During the course of 
his duties the patrol officer is frequently in contact 
with suspicious persons. Each of these situations 



detailed information or planning and thus places 
himself in a variety of dangerous situations. The 
patrol officer also risks attack through frequent 
encounters with criminal offenders at or near 
crime scenes. These perils are in a large measure 
substantiated by the fact that officers assigned 
to patrol duty are the most frequent targets of 
the police killer. Officers assigned in other capaci- 
ties are confronted with equally tense and danger- 
ous types of situations while performing their 
duties, but not with the same frequency. 

During 1972, 71 patrol officers were slain. Sixty- 
four of these officers were assigned to patrol cars 
while seven were foot patrolmen. Twenty-nine 
officers were detectives or officers on special as-

signments. During 1972, in the highest tradition 
of the law enforcement profession, 12 officers whOe 
in an off-duty status were taking appropriate police 
action concerning crimes committed in their pres- 
ence when they were slain. Eight of the off-duty 
officers were slain by persons they encountered 
during the commission of a robbery, or while in 
pursuit of robbery suspects. During the period 
1963-1972, 68 percent or 531 of the 786 officers 
slain by felons were assigned to patrol duties. In 
1972, 39 of the on-duty officers were alone and 
unassisted when killed. During the period 1963- 
1972, 35 percent or 272 of the officers were alone 
when they sacrificed their lives for the community 
they were sworn to protect. Information is set 
forth in the following table concerning types of 
assignment and circumstances involved in con- 
nection with the killings of officers during the 
periods of 1963-1967 and 1968-1972.

13 officers were feloniously slain. 

In 1972, Wednesday and Saturday were the 
most dangerous days of the week for law en- 
forcement officers. During the period 1963-1972, 
133 officers were killed on Friday, 1 15 on Saturday, 
115 on Sunday, HI on Monday, 111 on Wednes- 
day, 109 on Thursday, and 92 on Tuesday. 

During the period 1968-1972, Friday was the 
most dangerous day with 8 1 officers slain followed 
by Monday with 76, Sunday 75, Saturday 69, 
Thursday 65, Tuesday 61, and Wednesday 61. 

During the period 1963-1972, 69 percent of all 
killings of law enforcement officers occurred 
between 4:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m. The most 
dangerous times were between 10:00 p.m. and 
11:00 p.m. when 69 officers were slain and from 
1:00 a.m. until 2:00 a.m. when 65 officers were 
killed.

cent of the offenders were white, 49 percent 
Negro, and 2 percent other races. 

During the period 1963-1972, 786 officers were 
slain; 1,084 offenders were identified, clearing 95 
percent of these kiUings. Seventy-six percent of 
the offenders had prior arrests for criminal charges, 
with 59 percent of the offenders having been con- 
victed of those charges. Forty-two percent had 
prior arrests for violent types of crime such as 
murder, rape, armed robbery, aggravated assault, 
etc. Sixty-one percent of those who had previously 
been convicted on criminal charges had been 
granted parole or probation. Sixteen percent of 
the offenders were on parole or probation when 
they were involved with the killing of an officer. 
Twelve percent of the offenders had a prior arrest 
for a narcotics charge and 9 percent had prior 
arrests for police assault. 

Ninety-six percent were male and 4 percent 
female. During this ten-year period, 50 percent 
of the offenders were white and 49 percent were 
Negro. 

In the period 1961-1970, 848 knovni persons 
were involved in connection with the killing of 
633 law enforcement officers. One hundred and 
five offenders or 12 percent were killed at the 
scene of the crime or soon thereafter, 20 com- 
mitted suicide, and six offenders are known fugi- 
tives. A total of 717 individuals or 85 percent 



were arrested and charged in connection with 
these police killings. There were 466 offenders or 
65 percent found guilty of murder. Available court 
cUsposition data discloses that 82 were sentenced 
to death, 239 were sentenced to life imprisonment, 
141 received prison terms ranging from two to 
200 years, and four offenders received probation. 
Sixty-four offenders were found guilty of lesser 
offenses such as manslaughter, assault, etc. Thirty- 
one offenders were found guilty of other crimes 
committed such as robbery, burglary, etc., when 
the police murders occurred. Ninety-eight indi- 
viduals or 14 percent were found not guilty. Fur- 
ther, 37 offenders were committed to mental insti- 
tutions and nine offenders died while awaiting trial. 

In 1972, 20 offenders were killed at the scene of 
the crime or soon thereafter and six offenders 
committed suicide. For the period 1963-1972, 
135 assailants were killed at the crime site or 
within a short time after the police killing was 
committed; 28 committed suicide shortly after 
the killing and seven died from other causes. 

During the period 1963-1972, the offenders 
ranged in age from thirteen years to 82. During 
this period the median age of these offenders was 
25 j'^ears. Fifty-five percent were between the 
ages of 20 and 30. Seven percent, or 77 were under 
the age of 18 and 20 was the most common age of 
the poUce killers. In 1972, the 169 offenders

identified with police killings had a median age of 
24. Sixty percent of these persons were between 
the ages of 20 and 30. Thirteen of the persons 
committing these fatal attacks were under the 
age of 18. The most common age of the police 
killer was 25 in 1972. 

Geographic Locations 

The 112 law enforcement officers slain during 
1972 were from 92 different law enforcement 
agencies in .35 states. Among the agencies, the 
New York City Police Department ranked high- 
est with four officers slain in 1972 followed by the 

50 



Clay County, Arkansas Sheriff's Office and the 
Detroit, Michigan Police Department, each with 
three officers killed. 

Among the states, Texas ranked highest with 
ten officers killed while performing their duties 
as law enforcement officers. The states of North 
Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania followed with 
seven officers killed in each state. 

The Police of Puerto Rico had three officers 
killed due to criminal action in 1971. In 1972 
two officers were slain. Four of the police killings 
were perpetrated through use of firearms and a 
knife was used to kill one officer. The most fre- 
quent type of activity under which these officers 
were slain was disturbance call situations fol- 
lowed by investigating suspicious circumstances, 
and attempting arrests other than robbery or 
burglary. 

Accidental Deaths 

Three hundred seven ty-nine law enforcement 
officers have reportedly died as a result of acci- 
dents occurring in the line of duty during the 
nine-year period, 196.3-1971. In 1972, 41 additional 
officers died, bringing the total number of such 
deaths from 1963 through 1972 to 420. These 
officers are not included in the preceding infor- 
mation concerning law enforcement officers who 
were killed as a result of felonious criminal action. 
The leading cause of accidental deaths in the law 
enforcement profes.sion is automobile accidents 
which have claimed the lives of 208 officers. Seven- 
ty-two officers have been killed in accidents in- 
volving motorcycles. Fifty officers died as a result 
of accidents while they were directing traffic or 
while they were at the scene of a previous accident. 
The other deaths occurred when firearms were 
accidentally discharged, helicopter and plane 
crashes, falls, etc. These types of accidents 
claimed the lives of 15 officers in 1972. 

ASSAULTS ON LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS 

In 1972, the Uniform Crime Reporting Program 
instituted a new detailed monthly collection of 
data regarding the problem of assaults on local, 
county, and state law enforcement officers in this 
nation. The large number of reported assaults on 
sworn officers is in part due to a prevalent attitude 
of disrespect for law enforcement in certain 
elements of our society. 

The uniformed officer is the target for persons 
with real or imagined grievances against the 
"system." He also is, in many instances, the 
first i)erson to render aid to mentally deranged 



individuals, to calm disturbances and quarrels, 
to offer protection to those threatened, or rescue 
those in peril. The officer is the active representa- 
tive of a society whose members too often forget 
their individual responsibilities to their fellow 
human beings. In this role, he suffers a variety of 
unsolicited and undeserved abuse. 

During 1972, 37,523 assaults on police were 
reported by 4,327 agencies covering an estimated 
population of 119,179,000. There were, in 1972, 
an estimated 61,800 assaults on police in the 
nation. The rate of assaults on police for the nation 
was 15 assaults per 100 officers for the year. 

Activity of Police Officers at the Time of Assault 

An examination of the activities of law enforce- 
ment officers at the time of the assaults discloses 
that the greatest number of assaults, 27 percent, 
were in responding to disturbance calls. The second 
highest incidence activity, 25 percent of the as- 
saults, was "attempting arrests" other than 
burglary or robbery. Third in magnitude was 
handling prisoners with 11 percent. Any officer 
who has answered disturbance calls remembers 
the situations when he became a substitute target 
in a husband and wife quarrel or an arbitrator 
in a customer-proprietor argument. The high in- 
cidence of assaults in these common and often 
repeated police activities should serve as an im- 
petus for greater alertness to all police personnel. 
The officer must avoid becoming complacent in 
his pursuit of any type of police activity. The 
police administrator or command officer should 
consider procedures to afford the responding officer 
the fullest possible support in all activities no 
matter how menial or routine they might seem. 

Weapons Used in Assaults on Police Officers 

Nationwide, personal weapons, su(?-h as hands, 
fists, feet, etc., were used in 81 percent of the 
assaults on officers in 1972. Cities with population 
between 25,000 and 50,000 had the highest inci- 
dence of assaults with personal weapons 
accounting for 87 percent. Cities over 1,000,000 
showed the greatest percentage of assaults with 
firearms which accounted for 11 percent of the 
assaults in those cities. These large cities also 
showed the highest percentage of assaults with 
knife with 4 percent. By geographic division, the 
Pacific States had the highest rate of assaults on 
police with 28 of every 100 officers being assaulted 
in 1972. The Middle Atlantic States had the lowest 
rate with eleven of every 100 officers being 
assaulted. 



Type of Assignment 

Of those officers assaulted in 1972 in the nation, 
44 percent were in two-man vehicles, 33 percent 
in one-man vehicles, 7 percent on detective or 
special assignment, and 16 percent in other as- 
signments. In the highest assault incidence ac- 
tivity of police, responding to disturbance calls, 
50 percent of the victims were in two-man vehicles, 
40 percent in one-man vehicles, 3 percent in de- 
tective or special assignment, and 7 percent in 
other assignments. The vehicle patrol officer is 
the victim of assault in 77 percent of the total 
assaults on police. 

Injuries to Law Enforcement Officers 

Assaults on officers resulted in 39 cases of serious 
personal injury to every 100 officers assaulted. The 
rates showed assault with injury to 9 officers per 
100 in the New England division as contrasted 
with 4.5 per 100 in the West South Central divi- 
sion. The national rate of injuries to law enforce- 
ment officers was 6 per 100 officers. Cities of 
100,000 to 250,000 inhabitants had the greatest 
rate of assault with injury with 8 per 100 and 
sheriffs' officers had the lowest rate with 3 per 100. 

Time of Assault 

Approximately one-half of the assaults on 
officers 'occurred during the hours from 8:00 p.m. 
to 2:00 a.m. The period with greatest incidence 
was from 10:00 p.m. to midnight. Nearly one-fifth 
of the assaults, 18 percent, were recorded for this 
two-hour period. All cities, as well as counties, 
recorded the largest number of assaults against 
officers in this time period, with the exception of 
the cities 100,000 to 250,000 and those 10,000 to 
25,000. Cities in these population groups showed 
the greatest assault incidence from 8:00 p.m. to 
10:00 p.m. 

Clearances in Assaults on Police 

Nationwide m 1972, 89 percent of police assaults 
were cleared by arrest. In cities over 250,000, this 
clearance percentage was highest of any popula- 
tion group with 90 percent being cleared. Assaults 
of police in disturbance matters were cleared at 
the rate of 94 percent in cities over 250,000. 

The unfortunate phenomenon in our society of 
ambush attacks on law enforcement officers re- 
sulted in an estimated 600 assaults in 1972. 
The nature of these ambushes where officers are 
enticed or entrapped has resulted in the lowest 
clearance rate in any category of police activity. 
The clearance rate of these ambush attacks was 
48 percent.

SUMMARY OF UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 



Uniform Crime Reports provides a nationwide 
view of crime based on the voluntary submission 
of police statistics by local law enforcement 
agencies throughout the country. The extent of 
coverage as demonstrated by this publication is 
indeed a tribute to the cooperative and dedicated 
spirit of the law enforcement community in this 
country. 

Historical Background 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program is the 
outgrowth of a need for a national and uniform 
compilation of law enforcement statistics. A 
national program of collection of crime counts was 
initiated in 1930 by the Committee on Uniform 
Crime Records of the International Association 
of Chiefs of Police (lACP). In that same year, 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation was author- 
ized as the national clearing house for statistical 
information on crime. Crime reports are solicited 
from law enforcement agencies throughout the 
Nation based on uniform classifications and 
procedures of reporting. Information regarding 
crime is available to law enforcement in a variety 
of data spheres, e.g., offenses, arrests, prosecu- 
tions, convictions, and confinements. With the 
view to providing as complete a picture of crime 
in the United States as possible, the Committee 
on Uniform Crime Records of the lACP chose 
to obtain data from the sphere of offenses known 
to police. Greater numbers of these data were 
available than in any other category of reportable 
crime information. A meaningful overview of 
crime could be obtained from examination of 
seven offenses which were selected because of 
their seriousness, frequency in occurrence, and like- 
lihood of being reported to police. These offenses, 
known as the Crime Index offenses, were murder, 
forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burg- 
lary, larceny $50 and over, and auto theft. To 
provide for uniformity nationwide in the reporting 
of these offenses, standardized definitions were 
adopted. This standardization was necessary to 
overcome the variations in definitions of criminal 
violations among the states and localities. Re- 
porting agencies are required to interpret local 



crimmal acts and law violations in the context of 
these definitions prior to submission of their 
counts to the FBI. The Uniform Crime Reporting 
definitions of these offenses are set forth later in 
this section. Because of the differences among 
the state codes, there is no possibility in a program 
such as this to distinguish between crimes by 
designation such as "felony" or "misdemeanor". 

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 police 
records and crime reporting systems. Dr. Peter P. 
Lejins, Director, Institute of Criminal Justice and 
Criminology, University of Maryland, College 
Park, Maryland, continues as a consultant to the 
FBI in the conduct of tfiis Program. 

The National Sheriff's Association (NSA) in 
June, 1966, established a Committee on Uniform 
Crime Records to serve in an advisory capacity 
to the NSA membersfiip and the national Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program. This Committee 
actively encourages sheriffs throughout the 
country to fully participate in this important 
Program. 

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

In recent years, the FBI has actively assisted 
individual states in the development of state- 
wide programs of police statistics compatible with 
the national system. These state statistical pro- 
grams provide the advantage of increased cover- 
age of law enforcement agencies due to mandatory 
reporting requirements. The state systems also 
can provide direct and frequent service to law 
enforcement agencies in assuring completeness and 
quality of information provided by them. Through 
coordination by the state collection agency, the 



53 



data is available for the use of the state ; and the 
collection and reporting machinery for the na- 
tional Program is substantially streamUned. 

With the development of state Uniform Crime 
Reporting Programs, the FBI ceases collection 
of data directly from individual law enforcement 
agencies within the state. Completed information 
from these agencies is forwarded to the national 
Program through the state Uniform Crime Re- 
porting collection agency. There are 14 states 
now operating state Uniform Crime Reporting 
Programs. These include California, Kentucky, 
Rhode Island, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan, 
Minnesota, New Jersey, Nebraska, Florida, Wis- 
consin, West Virginia, North Carolina and Del- 
aware. Several other states are in various stages 
of development. The conditions under which these 
systems are developed provide for consistency and 
comparability in the data submitted to the na- 
tional program and also permit regular and 
timely reporting of the national crime data. 
These conditions are: 

(1) The state Program must conform to the 
national Uniform Crime Reports standards, defi- 
nitions and information required. This, of course, 
does not prohibit the state from collecting other 
statistical data beyond the national collection. 
(2) The state agency must have a proven, effective, 
mandatory, statewide program and have instituted 
acceptable quality control procedures. (3) Cover- 
age within the state by a state agency must at 
least be equal to that attained by Uniform Crime 
Reports. (4) The state agency must have adequate 
field staff assigned to assist local units in record 
practices and crime reporting procedures. (5) 
The state agency must furnish to the FBI all of 
the detailed data regularly collected by the FBI 
in the form of duplicate returns, computer print- 
outs, and/or magnetic tape. (6) The state must 
have the proven capability (tested over a period 
of time) to supply all the statistical data required 
to the FBI in time to meet national Uniform Crime 
Reports publication deadlines. (7) The FBI will 
continue its internal procedures of verifying and 
reviewing individual agency reports for both 
completeness and quality. (8) The FBI will con- 
tinue to have direct contact with individual re- 
porting units within the state where necessary in 
connection with crime reporting matters, but will 
coordinate such contacts with the state agency. 
(9) Upon request, the FBI will continue its 
training programs within the state with respect to 
police records and crime reporting procedures. 



For mutual benefit these will be coordinated with 
the state agency. (10) Should circumstances 
develop whereby the state agency cannot provide 
the data required by the national Program, the 
FBI will reinstitute a direct collection of Uniform 
Crime Reports from police units within the state. 

Objectives of Uniform Crime Reporting 

The fundamental objective of the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program is to produce a reUable 
set of criminal statistics on a national basis for use 
in law enforcement administration, operation and 
management. This compiled data is also intended 
for the use and information of other professionals 
and scholars with an interest in the crime problem. 
At the same time, this information is important 
for the general consumption of the public as an 
indicator of the crime factor in society. 

The means utilized to attain these objectives 
are: 

(1) To measure the extent, fluctuation, dis- 
tribution and nature of serious crime in the 
United States through presentation of data on the 
seven Crime Index offenses. 

(2) To measure the total volume of serious crime 
known to police. 

(3) To show the activity and coverage of law 
enforcement agencies through arrest counts and 
police employee strength data. 

Reporting Procedure 

In the national Uniform Crime Reporting 
Program contributing law enforcement agencies 
are wholly responsible for compiling their own 
crime reports and submitting them to the FBI. 
The FBI in an effort to maintain quality and 
uniformity in the data received furnishes those 
contributing agencies upon their request training 
in Uniform Crime Reporting procedures. All 
contributors, also, are furnished with the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Handbook which outhnes in 
detail, procedures for scoring and classifying 
offenses. The Handbook illustrates and discusses 
the monthly and annual reporting forms as well 
as the numerous tally sheets made available to 
facilitate the periodic tabulation of desired data. 

The jniblication of the Uniform Crime Re- 
porting "Newsletter," which was initiated in 
October, 1963, has continued with issues 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. 



54 



A centralized record system is necessary to the 
sound operation of any law enforcement agency. 
The record system is an essential basis for crime 
reporting by the agency. The FBI makes avail- 
able upon request to any law enforcement agency 
the Manual of Police Records, which can serve 
as a guide in the establishment or modification 
of a basic, nonautomated police records system. 
Special Agents of the FBI are utilized to en- 
courage new Uniform Crime Reporting contrib- 
utors and to assist them in the established re- 
porting procedures of Uniform Crime Reporting. 

On a monthly basis, law enforcement agencies 
(police, sheriffs, and state police) report the num- 
ber of offenses that became known to them during 
the month in the following crime categories: mur- 
der and nonnegligent manslaughter, manslaughter 
by negligence, forcible rape, robbery, assault, bur- 
glary, larceny, and auto theft. This count is taken 
from a record of all complaints of crime received 
by the law enforcement agency from victims, other 
sources, and/or discovered by officers. Whenever 
complaints of crime are determined through in- 
vestigation to be unfounded or false they are 
eliminated from the actual count. The number of 
"actual offenses known" in these crime categories 
is reported to the FBI without regard to whether 
anyone is an-ested for the crime; the stolen prop- 
erty is recovered; the local prosecutive policy; or 
any other restrictive consideration. Law enforce- 
ment agencies on a monthly basis report the total 
number of these reported crimes which they clear 
either by arrest or exceptional means. A separate 
count of crimes cleared which involve only persons 
under the age of 18 is shown. The number of law 
enforcement officers killed and assaulted and the 
value of property stolen and recovered during the 
month are also reported. 

On an annual basis arrests are reported for 
all criminal acts, except traffic violations, by 
crime category including the age, sex, and race 
of each ])erson arrested. A report is also submitted 
concerning the number of persons formally 
charged by crime classification and the disposition 
of such charges. 

I^aw enforcement employee data specifically 
encompasses the number of sworn and other 
personnel, and is collected as of October 31. 
During the initial stages of the development 
of state programs the state authority is encouraged 
to have law enforcement agencies report the de- 
tailed arrest data by crime category, age, sex, and 
race and the report concerning the number of 



persons formally charged and the disposition of 
such charges on a monthly basis. In January, 1972, 
a monthly collection in the national program was 
instituted concerning the number of law enforce- 
ment officers assaulted by type of duty assign- 
ment. Additional information is collected relative 
to the type of weapon used, the circumstances of 
the assault, and whether or not the victim officer 
sustained injury. 

Reporting Area 

During calendar year 1972, crime reports were 
received from law enforcement agencies repre- 
senting 98 percent of the United States popula- 
tion living in the standard metropolitan statistical 
areas, 91 percent of the population in other 
cities, and 76 percent of the rural population. 
The combined coverage accounts for 9.3 percent 
of the total national population. 

Presentation of crime data by areas as used 
in this publication follows as closely as practical 
the definitions used by the Office of Management 
and Budget and the Bureau of the Census for 
standard metropolitan statistical areas and other 
cities. There is, however, some deviation insofar 
as the rural area is concerned. For crime reporting 
purposes rural is generally the unincorporated 
portion of a county outside of standard metro- 
politan statistical areas. In addition, statistics are 
presented in certain tables relative to "suburban" 
areas. A suburban area consists of cities with 
50,000 or less population together with counties 
which are within a standard metropolitan statis- 
tical area. In this use of suburban, the core city 
is, of course, excluded. The suburban area concept 
is used because of the particular crime conditions 
which exist in these communities surrounding 
the major core cities. 

Standard metropolitan statistical areas are 
generally made up of an entire county or counties 
having at least one core city of 50,000 or more 
inhabitants, with the whole meeting the require- 
ments of certain metropolitan characteristics. 
In New England, "town" instead of "county" is 
used to describe standard metropolitan statis- 
tical areas. These towns do not coincide generally 
with established reporting units; therefore, metro- 
politan state economic areas in New England are 
used in these area tabulations since they en- 
compass an entire county or counties. Standard 
metropolitan statistical areas, as used in this 
publication, make up approximately 71 percent 
of the total United States population.

"Other cities" are urban places outside standard 
metropolitan statistical areas. Most of these 
places of 2,500 or more inhabitants are incor- 
porated and comprise 11 percent of the 1971 popu- 
lation. Rural areas are made up of the unincor- 
porated portions of counties outside of urban 
places and standard metropolitan statistical areas 
and represent 18 percent of our national popula- 
tion. Throughout this Program, sheriffs, county 
police, and many state police report on crimes 
committed within the limits of the counties but 
outside cities while local police report on crime 
committed wthin the city limits (urban places). 

Verification Procedures 

Uniformity of crime data collected under this 
Program is of primary concern to the FBI as 
the national clearinghouse. With the receipt of 
reports covering approximately 10,000 jurisdic- 
tions, prepared on a voluntary basis, the problems 
of attaining uniformity are readily apparent. 
Issuance of instructions does not complete the role 
of the FBI. On the contrary, it is standard operat- 
ing procedure to examine each incoming report not 
only for arithmetical accuracy but also, and 
possibly of even more importance, for reasonable- 
ness as a possible indication of errors. 

Variations in the level and ratios among the 
crime classes established by previous reports of 
each agency are used as a measure of possible 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 1972, 21,500 communications were ad- 
dressed to contributors primarily as a result of 
editing and evaluation processes. Correspondence 
with contributors is the principal tool for super- 
vision of quality. Not only are the individual 
reports studied, but also periodic trends for in- 
dividual reporting units are prepared. Crime rates 
for all units are grouped for general compara- 
bility to assist in detecting variations and fluctua- 
tions 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 
attention. 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. 

The FBI schedules Uniform Crime Reporting 
seminars and workshops throughout the country 
for law enforcement personnel. Contacts by Special 
Agents of the FBI are utilized to enlist the coop- 
eration of new contributors and to explain the pur- 
pose of this Program and the methods of assembling 
information for reporting. When correspondence, 
including specially designed questionnaires fail, 
Special Agents may be directed to visit the contrib- 
utor to affirmatively resolve the misunder- 
standing. 

Variations from the desired reporting standard 
which cannot be resolved by the steps indicated 
above are brought to the attention of the Com- 
mittee on Uniform Crime Records of the lACP. 
The Committee may designate a representative to 
make a personal visit to the local department to 
assist in the needed revision of records and re- 
porting methods. 

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

The Crime Totals 

Communities not represented by crime reports 
are relatively few, as discussed previously and as 
shown by an examination of the tables which 
follow presenting 1972 crime totals for the Index 
of Crime classifications. The FBI conducts a 
continuing program to further reduce the un- 
reported areas. The continuing development and 
implementation of mandatory state Uniform 
Crime Reporting Programs will virtually eliminate 
unreported areas. 

Within each of the three areas — standard 
metropolitan 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 heu of figures for 
the entire year from those agencies, reports for 
as many as nine months are 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 



56 



in this basic estimating procedure as the need 

arises. 

Crime Trends 

Crime data for trends are homogeneous to the 
extent that figures from identical reporting units 
are used for each of the periods tabulated. In 
all trend tabulations only those reporting units 
are used which have provided comparable data 
for the period under consideration. National, 
geographic, and area trends are always established 
on the basis of two consecutive years. Exclusions 
from trend computations are made when figures 
from a reporting \init are obviously inaccurate 
for any period or when it is ascertained that 
unusual fluctuations are due to such variables as 
improved records procedures. 

As a matter of standard procedure crime trends 
for individual places are analyzed five times a 
year by the FBI. Any significant increase or 
decrease is made the subject of a special inquiry 
with the contributing agency. In 1972, for example, 
more than 2,000 letters were sent to police 
administrators of contributing agencies inquiring 
as to the reason for significant increases or 
decreases in pertinent crime classifications. The 
communication containing this inquiry specifically 
directs attention to possible changes in records or 
reporting procedures. When it is found that 
crime reporting procedures are in part responsible 
for the difference in the level of crime, the figures 
for specific crime categories or totals are excluded 
from the trend tabulations. Year-to-year trends 
in Uniform Crime Reports are valid and may be 
used to reasonably establish long term trends as 
well as to reestimate crime volume and recon- 
struct crime trends for prior years. It can be 
assumed logically that the current year is the 
most complete in terms of volume. Trend or jiercent 
change as established by comj)arable units for 
each two-year jjeriod is then applied as the basis 
for reestimating the volume of crime for prior 
years. 

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

Population data 

In computing crime rates by state, geographic 
division, standard metropolitan statistical area, 



and the Nation as a whole, population estimates 
released by the Bureau of the Census on July 1, 
1972, were used. Population estimates for individ- 
ual cities and counties were prepared using special 
census reports, state sources and estimates, com- 
mercial sources, and extrapolation where no other 
estimate was available. Complete 1972 population 
estimates for individual cities and counties were 
used from 13 states while official sources in other 
states provided limited data which was used selec- 
tively. The estimated United States population 
increase in 1972 was 1.0 percent over 1971 accord- 
ing to the figures published by the Bureau of the 
Census. 
Recent Developments in Uniform Crime Reporting 

Collection of traffic enforcement data by the 
national Uniform Crime Reporting Program was 
discontinued during 1972. This decision upon 
advisement of the Committee on Uniform Crime 
Records of the lACP was made in that this 
information is in part duplicative of broader and 
more detailed collections made at the state 
level and by the National Safety Council. 

Since 1958 "larceny $50 and over in value" 
has been a Crime Index offense. The problem of 
dollar valuation of larceny has been the subject 
of discussion in the Committee on Uniform Crime 
Records meetings since 1963. During recent years 
the Committee has considered modification in 
the definition of this offense due to problems of 
evaluation of stolen property and inflation factors 
in the $50 value which is basic to the defmition 
of this offense. The Committee and the FBI have 
had mutual concern in this matter and have jointly 
discussed a variety of possible solutions including 
increasing the dollar valuation from $50 to some 
higher dollar value. This suggestion was seen as 
only a tem])orary solution to the problem. In 
the later part of 1972 consideration by the FBI, 
the Committee, the operating state programs, and 
several large citj^ police departments resulted in 
the adoption of "total larceny" as a replacement 
for the Crime Index offense of "larceny $50 and 
over in value." This new classification will include 
the total number of larceny-theft offenses known 
to police without regard to value. 

In the interest of maintaining comparability of 
data in this larceny classification, contributing 
agencies will continue reporting larceny offenses 
with the $50 breakdown and will also report total 
larceny-theft. 

Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting 

Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting are 

57

divided into two groupings designated as Part I 
and Part II offenses. Crime Index offenses are 
included among the Part I offenses. Offense and

THE INDEX OF CRIME, 1972 



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

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



to furnish an abbreviated and convenient measure 
of the crime problem. 

It is important to remember in reviewing the 
tables in this section that the volume of crime in a 
state or standard metropolitan statistical area 
is subject to the factors set forth on page vii. 
Estimates of current permanent population are 
used to construct crime rates. With our highly 
mobile population all communities, metropolitan 
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 reUable estimates by state are available 
nationwide. 

Tables are presented showing the comparative 
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 metropolitan 
fringe can be readily discerned by a review of 
these tables.

2 Violent crime is offenses of murder, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault; property crime is offenses of burglary, larceny $60 and over and auto theft. 

3 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.

General United States Crime Statistics 



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

National city averages are also shown indicating 
the type and value of the property stolen, by 
offense and type, and value recovered by police 
investigation. Robbery, burglary, and larceny- 
theft are examined by type, as well as where and 
when they occurred. An analysis is provided 
showing weapons used to commit murders as well 
as a distribution of murder victims by age, sex, 
and race. Dispositions made of persons formally 
charged for all criminal offenses are set forth in 
Table 18 and disposition data on juvenile offenders 
is provided by population group in Table 21. 

City, suburban, and rural 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 cate- 
gories 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 aver- 
ages that usually about half the units used must 
be above and about half below. National averages 
can provide the pohce 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 effective- 
ness of the police operation is possible.

Arrest Data 



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

Arrest statistics are collected annually from 
contributing law enforcement agencies and the 
figures used in the tables this year were submitted 
bj' agencies representing 77 percent of the United 
States population. In usuag 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 maj' 
solve several crimes and, in other instances, two 



or more persons may be arrested during the solu- 
tion of one crime. 

Arrests are primarily a measure of police ac- 
tivity, as it relates to crime. Although police arrest 
practices vary, particularly wdth respect to juve- 
niles, contributors to this Program are instructed 
to count one arrest each time an individual 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 criminality 
when used within its limitations, as must be done 
with all forms of criminal statistics, including 
court and penal.

Law Enforcement Employee Data 



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

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

The law enforcement emploj-ee rate ranges in 
Table 54, which include civihans, .show the inter- 
quartile range between the upper limits of the 
lowest quartile and the lower limits of the highest 
quartile. In other words, 50 percent of the cities 
shown in each population group and geographic 
division have police strength within the rate 
ranges shown. Ba^ arraying rates in this manner, 
extremes are eliminated. 

In Table 55, where rates are pubUshed for police 
officers, complete rate ranges are provided as 
supplemental data for those who may be interested 
in using these figures to make limited comparisons. 

Statistical data indicating the percent distribu- 
tion of police emploj-ees bj- sex, including civilian 
personnel, are included in Table 56. 

Three tables report figures relating to 
police patrols by population groups and shift 
assignments. 



Pohce strength for reporting state police and 
state highway patrol organizations is recorded 
in one table. 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 comparative 
workload and personnel strength because of 
widely differing functions and other factors. 
The wide variations in the numbers of sworn and 
civihan personnel among the various states can 
be accounted for in part by the differences in 
responsibihties assigned to the departments. It 
is pointed out, for instance, that state pohce 
generally are responsible not only for traffic 
patrol, but also conduct a major portion of the 
criminal investigative work in the unincorporated 
areas of the states. On the other hand, the activities 
of the state highway patrol organizations for the 
most part are hmited to traffic and highway 
patrol, which includes handling all types of crime 
which come to their attention during the per- 
formance of their patrol functions. Many of 
these state highway patrol groups also are author- 
ized to and do participate in criminal investi- 
gative work when requested to do so by local 
departments or sheriff's offices. 

The annual collection of law enforcement 
employee data provides personnel counts, sex 
of employees, and whether the employee is 
sworn or civilian. Data with respect to officers 
killed in the line of duty is obtained throughout 
the year with the use of a special questionnaire. 
Some data relative to police killings and assaults 
are presented in this section of this publication. 
Employee counts for individual agencies are 
presented in tabular format in this section.
