roreword 

Crime is a social problem of vital concern to society and all levels of govern- 
ment. Each citizen of this country must become involved if we are to success- 
fullj^ combat this menace. 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program was initiated in 1930 by the law 
enforcement community to better identify the crime problem. In order to 
develop a national Program which would be practical and meaningful, certain 
standards and procedures were established. At the inception of the Program 
the impossibility of identifying the occurrence of every criminal act was recog- 
nized; therefore, the Uniform Crime Reporting Program is based upon those 
criminal acts which actually come to the attention of law enforcement either 
through information received from citizens or through the observations of law 
enforcement officers. 

In order to insure uniformity of information, standard criminal act definitions 
were adopted to overcome the variances in criminal offense definitions which 
exist in the legal codes from state to state. To maintain the concept of prac- 
ticality seven criminal acts were selected to be used in measuring crime in the 
United States. These seven crimes are known as the Crime Index offenses and 
consist of murder, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny- 
theft, and motor vehicle theft. The remaining criminal offenses are placed in a 
separate category. 

The Crime Index offenses were selected because of the inherent seriousness of 
the criminal act and/or because the volume of such offenses caused a serious 
problem for law enforcement. In addition, consideration was given to the 
probability of society reporting specific criminal acts to law enforcement. 

Since the Program's inception, 44 years ago, more and more law enforcement 
agencies have joined in this common effort to present data not only for the use 
of law enforcement, but also for the use of mayors; governors; legislators; the 
Congress of the United States; other Government officials at all levels; the 
academic and research communities; and other persons seriously concerned 
with the crime problem. Today almost 11,000 city, county, and state law en- 
forcement agencies contribute to Uniform Crime Reports. This is definitely a 
tribute to the professional nature of law enforcement agencies throughout the 
Nation. In addition, 22 states have implemented state Uniform Crime Report- 
ing Programs. These state programs furnish data directly to the national Pro- 
gram. It should be emphasized that information collected in connection with 
the national Uniform Crime Reporting Program is a by-product or residual of 
the information which a law enforcement administrator needs for the daily 
operation of his agency. Every effort is made on a continuing basis to improve 
the overall quality of the information collected in connection with the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program. 

Recently the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration and the Bureau 
of Census embarked upon a victimization survey in certain cities throughout 
the United States. This was the first concentrated national effort ever made in 



VI 



this country to measure the vohime of unreported crime — the number of 
criminal acts which do not come to the attention of law enforcement. This first 
eflFort furnished some valuable information as to why members of our society 
do not report certain criminal acts to law enforcement authorities. These 
reasons will be closely reviewed by law enforcement agencies in an effort to 
resolve the impediments which may exist as to the reporting of crime. Law 
enforcement administrators accordingly have a substantial challenge to develop 
methods through which the total volume of unreported crime can be reduced. 
These first efforts in connection with victimization studies have encountered 
problems. However, one by one the problem areas will be resolved and these 
studies will undoubtedly develop more useful information relating to the causes 
and nature of crime.

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 con- 
sidered 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, se.x, 

and race. 
Economic status and mores of the population. 
Stability of population, including commuters, seasonal, and other 

transient types. 
Climate, including seasonal weather conditions. 
Educational, recreational, and religious characteristics. 
Effective strength of the police force. 
Standards 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 oflFenses of murder, forcible rape, robbery, 
aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, and 
auto theft are used to establish 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 enforce- 
ment agencies as they become known and are 
reported on a monthly basis. The Crime Index 
offenses were selected as a measuring device be- 
cause, 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-theft, 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 situation, the best source 
for obtaining useable crime counts is the next logi- 
cal 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 capability 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 police investigation. When 



the law enforcement agency receives a complaint 
of a criminal matter and the follow-up investiga- 
tion discloses no crime occurred it is "unfounded." 
On a national average, police investigations 
"unfound" 4 percent of the complaints concerning 
Crime Index offenses ranging from 2 percent in 
the larceny classification to 15 percent in the 
forcible rape classification. These unfounded com- 
plaints are eliminated from the crime counts. 
During calendar year 1973, an estimated 
8,638,400 Crime Index offenses were reported to 
law enforcement agencies. This includes total 
larceny-theft which was used as an Index offense 
in 1973. Total larceny-theft replaces the "larceny 
$50 and over" offense category which was pre- 
viously utihzed as an Index offense. All data in this 
publication uses total larcenj^-theft for compara- 
tive periods. There is a 6 percent increase in es- 
timated volume of Index offenses, 1973 over 1972. 
The violent crime category made up 10 percent of 
the Crime Index total and increased 5 percent in 
volume over 1972. Murder increased 5 percent, 
forcible rape 10 percent, and aggravated assault 
7 percent. Robbery increased 2 percent. The volu- 
minous property crimes as a group increased 6 
percent. Auto theft increased 5 percent, larceny- 
theft increased 5 percent, and burglary was up 8 
percent. 

Since 1968, the violent crimes as a group have 
increased 47 percent and the property crimes 28 
percent. Crime, as measured by the Crime Index 
offenses' has risen 30 percent in volume during 
this five-year period. 

The estimated 1973 crime figures for the United 
States are set forth in the following table titled, 
"National Crime, Rate, and Percent Change."

A study of the volume of crime, as measured by 
the Crime Index, reveals the large core cities 
having population in excess of 250.000 recorded a 
1 percent increase while the suburban areas re- 
corded a 9 percent increase over 1972. The rural 
areas of the United States registered a 10 percent 
increase. The cities over 1,000,000 population 
reported a decrease of one-half of one percent from 
the previous year. 

Regionally, in 1973, the Western States reported 
a 2 percent increase in crime while the North- 
eastern States registered a 4 percent increase, the 
North Central States a 6 percent increase, and the 
Southern States recorded an increase of 9 percent. 

CRIME AND POPULATION 

Crime rates relate the incidence of reported 
crime to population. A crime rate should be con- 
sidered a victim risk rate. Crime rates used are 
based on Crime Index offenses. The change in the 
level of the crime rates published in prior years is 
due to the utiUzation of total larceny-theft in 
1973 rather than larceny $50 and over as an Index 
offense. Table 2 shows crime rates each year, 
1960-1973, using total larceny-theft as an Index 
crime. 

The Crime Index rate of the United States in 
1973 was 4,116 per 100,000 inhabitants. This was 
a 5 percent increase from the crime rate of 3,925 
per 100,000 inhabitants in 1972. The national 
crime rate, or the risk of being a victim of one of 
these crimes, has increased 24 percent since 1968. 
Many factors influence the nature and extent of 
crime in a particular community. A number of 
these factors are shown on page viii of this publi- 
cation. A crime rate takes into consideration only 
the numerical factor of population and does not 
incorporate any of the other elements which 
contribute to the amount of crime in a given area. 
Tables disclose that the varying crime experiences, 
especially in large cities and suburban communi- 
ties, 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 9 
percent Increase in forcible rape to a 1 percent 
increase in robbery. The number of crimes per

The accompanying charts illustrate the trend 
of crime in the United States from 1968 through 
1973 by 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 
property. Since 1968, the violent crime rate has 
increased 40 percent and the property crime rate 
increased 22 percent. The violent crime group 
includes murder, forcible rape, robbery, and 
aggravated assault oflFenses. The property crime 
category is made up of burglary, larceny-theft, 
and auto theft offenses.

The classification in this offense, as in all of the 
other Crime Index oflFenses, 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 neghgence, 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 
aggravated assaults and not as murder. 

Volume 

In 1973 there were an estimated 19,510 murders 
committed in the United States. This represents a 
numerical increase of 960 over the 18,550 estimated 
homicide offenses for 1972. The number of murders 
in 1973 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 1973 shows 
that the summer months had the greatest fre- 
quency 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, 22 percent in the North Central 
States, 19 percent in the Northeastern States, and 
15 percent in the Western States. 

Trend 

The number of murders increased 5 percent in 
1973 over 1972. The trend in this crime classifica- 
tion reveals an increase from .13,720 in 1968 to 
19,510 in 1973. This is an increase of 42 percent. 

Regionally, the number of murder offenses in 
1973 increased 4 percent in the Western States, 
4 percent m the Northeastern States, and 3 percent 
m the Southern States. The number of murders 
increased approximately 11 percent in the North 
Central States. 

An analysis, by population grouping, of murder 
shows that large core cities of 250,000 or more 
inhabitants had a 5 percent increase in the number 
of murders in 1973, the suburban areas experienced 
a 9 percent increase in murder offenses, and the 
rural areas had a 0.2 percent increase. 

Murder Rate 

In 1973, there were 9.3 victims of murder for 
every 100,000 inhabitants in the Nation. This was 
an increase of 4 percent over the murder rate of 
8.9 per 100,000 inhabitants recorded in 1972. 

By population grouping, the cities with 250,000 
or more inhabitants reported a murder rate of 20.7 



victims per 100,000 inhabitants, the suburban 
areas showed a rate of 5.1 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 
12.9 murders per 100,000 inhabitants. This is an 
increase of 2 percent over the murder rate of that 
Region in 1972. In 1973, the Western States 
showed a murder rate of 7.8, an increase of 1 per- 
cent over the rate in 1972 for that Region. The 
Northeastern States had a rate of 7.6, which was a 
4 percent increase over the 1972 rate for those 
states. The North Central Region had a rate of 
7.6, an increase of 12 percent in comparison to the 
1972 rate. 

Nature of Murder 

The law enforcement agencies which participate 
in Uniform Crime Reporting cooperate in pro- 
viding additional information regarding homicide 
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 1973 were male in 
approximately three out of four instances. This 
ratio of male to female victims is similar to the 
experience in the last several years. Approximately 
47 out of 100 murder victims were white, 52 were 
Negro, and 1 percent other races. The largest 
number of murders occurring in any ten year age 
bracket was in the 20 to 29 group with three 
of every ten murder victims. 

In 1973, 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, 67 
percent of the homicides were committed through 
the use of firearms and 53 percent were committed 
with handguns. In 1972, 54 percent of the murders 
were through the use of handguns. 

Cutting or stabbing weapons were used in 18 
percent of the murders in the Nation. The North- 
eastern States reported the greatest use of knives 
or cutting mstruments with three out of every 
ten murders being committed with this type of 
weapon. The North Central and Southern States

ders. Other weapons (blunt objects, poisons, ex- 
plosives, arson, drowning, etc.) were used in 7 
percent of the homicides and the remaining 9 



percent of the murders were the result of use of 
personal weapons such as hands, fists, feet, etc.

all homicides in 1973. A comparative analysis of 
weapons used to commit murder for 1968 through 
1973 is shown in tabular form. 

The circumstances which result Id murder vary 
from family arguments to felonious activities. 
Criminal homicide is largely a societal problem 
which is beyond the control of police. The cir- 
cumstances of murder serve to emphasize this 
point. In 1973, murder within the family made up 
approximately one-fourth of all murder offenses. 
Over one-half of these family killings involved

spouse killing spouse. The remainder were parents 
killing children and other in-family killings. 
Felony murder in Uniform Crime Reporting is 
defined as those killings resulting from robbery, 
burglary, sex motive, gangland and institutional 
slaying, and all other felonious activities. Felony 
type and suspected felony type murders in 1973 
constituted 29 percent of all murders, whereas 
these two categories accounted for 25 percent of 
total murder in 1968. An analysis of felony murder 
reveals that 52 percent of these killings occurred 



in connection with robbery offenses. Prostitution 
and commercialized vice, rape, and sex offenses 
accounted for 9 percent of the total, while Narcotic 
Drug Law offenses comprise 6 percent of felony 
murder. Tables showing breakdown by geo- 
graphical region for murder in 1973 and murder 
breakdown by circumstances for 1968-1973 ac- 
company this section. 

During 1973, 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 per- 
cent. In these incidents involving spouses, 49 
percent of the victims were Negro, 50 percent 
white, and the remaining victims were of other 



races. 



The victims of felony type murder were 62 
percent white, 37 percent Negro, and the remain- 
ing 1 percent of other race or race not reported. 

Clearances 

Nationally, pohce continue to be successful in 
clearing or solving by arrest a greater percentage 
of homicides than any other Crime Index offense. 
In 1973, 79 percent of the homicides were solved; 
however, in 1972, 82 percent of all murder offenses 
were solved. Persons under 18 years of age were 
involved in 6 percent of the willful killings solved 
by police. 



Since 1968, the clearance rate, nationwide, in 
homicide has decreased from 86 per 100 offenses 
to 79 per 100 offenses m 1973. 

Persons Arrested 

Based on reports submitted by law enforcement 
agencies, 10 percent of all persons arrested for 
murder were under 18 years of age and 45 percent 
were under 25. During the period 1968-1973, 
there was a 59 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 39 percent. Numerically, 
the 20 to 24 year age group had the heaviest 
involvement during 1973 with 25 percent of the 
total arrests coming from within this age group. 
Negroes made up 58 percent of the arrests for 
murder in 1973 and 52 percent of the victims of 
homicide were also Negroes. 

Persons Charged 

Law enforcement agencies' reports disclose that 
66 percent of all adults arrested for murder in 
1973 were prosecuted during the year. Forty-five 
percent of the adults prosecuted were found 
guilty as charged, and 23 percent were convicted 
on some lesser charge. The remaining 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 
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 1973, there were an estimated 
416,270 aggravated assaults in the Nation. This 
is a 7 percent increase, or 27,300 additional offenses 
over 1972. This crime against the person made up 
5 percent of the Crime Index offenses in 1973 and 
comprised 48 percent of the crimes of violence. 
Regionally, the Southern States reported 37 per- 
cent of the total count of these crimes followed 
by the North Central States with 22 percent, the 
Northeastern States with 21 percent, and the 
Western States reported the remainder. As has 
been the experience in previous years, the sum- 
mer months recorded the highest frequencies of 
aggravated assault during 1973. 

Trend 

In 1973, the volume of aggravated assault 
offenses increased 7 percent over 1972 and 47 
percent over 1968. Cities with over 250,000 in- 
habitants had an increase of about 1 percent. The 
suburban areas reported an increase of 14 percent 
and the rural areas an increase of 5 percent. 

The North Central States had an increase of 10 
percent, the Western States an increase of 9 per- 
cent, the Northeastern States had a 7 percent 
increase, and the Southern States an increase of 
approximately 4 percent. 

Aggravated Assault Rate 

For each 100,000 persons in the United States 
during 1973, there were 198 victims of aggravated 
assault. Large core cities with 250,000 or more 
inhabitants recorded a victim rate of 360 aggra- 
vated assaults per 100,000 inhabitants, suburban 
areas had 150, and rural areas 1 10. The victim rate 
for the Nation for aggravated assault increased 6 
percent over 1972 and 40 percent over 1968. (See 
Chart 6.) The Western States were highest with a 
rate of 235 per 100,000 followed by the Southern 



States with 233, the Northeastern States with 173, 
and the North Central States 157. 

Nature of Aggravated Assault 

Most aggravated assaults occur within the 
family unit and among neighbors or acquaintances. 
The victim-offender relationship, as well as the 
nature of the attack, makes this crime similar to 
murder. In 1973, 26 percent of the serious assaults 
were committed with the use of a firearm. A knife 
or other cutting instrument was used in 25 per- 
cent of the assaults, 23 percent were committed 
with blunt objects or other dangerous weapons. 
The remaining assaults were with personal weap- 
ons such as hands, fists, and feet. A comparison of 
the weapons used to commit assault from 1968 to 
1973 indicates that assaults with firearms have 
increased 63 percent; assaults with a knife or other 
cutting instrument have risen 16 percent; assaults 
where blunt objects or other dangerous weapons 
are used increased 37 percent, and those assaults 
through use of personal weapons have climbed 83 
percent. The table which follows demonstrates the 
regional experience of aggravated assault in 1973 
by t3rpe of weapon used. 

Clearartces 

Law enforcement agencies were successful in 
solving 63 of each 100 cases of aggravated assault 
in 1973. This clearance rate decreased from 66 of 
each 100 cases in 1972. This relatively high solu- 
tion rate is consistent with high solution rates in 
other crimes against the person. Persons under 
18 years of age were identified in 10 percent of 
these clearances. Due to the nature of these crimes, 
arrests are frequently made upon the response of 
patrol imits. This type of patrol call is hazardous 
to the officers. Since 1964, 125 officers have lost 
their lives responding to disturbance-type calls,

which frequently involve family or neighborhood 
arguments. 

Persons Arrested 

Arrests for aggravated assault in 1973 increased 
36 percent over 1968. Since 1968, arrests of persons 
18 years of age and over for aggravated assault 
have increased 35 percent and arrests of persons 
under 18 years of age for this offense have increased 
42 percent. As a group, persons 21 years of age and 
over accounted for 69 percent of the arrests for 
aggravated assault in 1973 and those under age 21 
accounted for 31 percent. Arrests of males out- 
numbered females by about 7 to 1. 

Persons Charged 

Law enforcement agencies have difficulty in 
obtaining convictions based on the original charge 
in the aggravated assault category. The close 
family or other relationship which exists between 
victims and assailants in this category accounts 
for the victims' frequent unwilhngness to testify 
for the prosecution. Acquittals and dismissals 
therefore continue to run high, accounting for 44 
percent of the dispositions. Eighty-two out of 
every 100 adults arrested for aggravated assault 
in 1973 were prosecuted. Seventeen percent of 
the adults prosecuted for this offense were con- 
victed of lesser charges. Seventeen percent of all 
persons processed were referred to juvenile court 
j urisdiction. 

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 in this offense classi- 
fication are broken down by actual forcible rapes 
and attempted forcible rapes. 

Volume 

During 1973, there was an estimated total of 
51,000 forcible rapes. Numerically, the volume 
increased by 4,520 offenses over 1972. 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 
violence. When viewed geographically, the South- 
ern States recorded 31 percent of the total volume 
while the Western and North Central States each 
reported 25 percent. The Northeastern States 
reported 19 percent of the volume. 



A comparison of the month-to-month variations 
of forcible rape in 1973 with the long-term season- 
ally adjusted trend followed the pattern set for 
many years. Chart 18 reflects the month-to-month 
variations of forcible rape during 1973, as well as 
a comparison with the prior average 5-year 
experience. 

Trend 

The volume of forcible rape offenses in 1973 
increased 10 percent over 1972, and 62 percent 
over 1968. During 1973, this crime occurred most 
frequently in large cities with 250,000 or more 
inhabitants, which accounted for 44 percent of 
the forcible rapes. Forcible rape increased 8 per- 
cent in this group of cities and 7 percent in the 
suburban areas surrounding the large core cities. 
The rural areas registered a 6 percent increase. 
Geographically, all regions of the United States 
reported increases in this offense. The North- 
eastern and Southern States each reported in- 
creases of 12 percent in this offense followed by 
the North Central States with a 10 percent 
increase and the Western States with a 5 percent 
increase. 

Forcible Rape Rate 

A crime rate, in its proper perspective, is a 
victim risk rate since it equates the number of 
crimes per unit of population. In 1973, 47 out of 
every 100,000 females in this country were re- 
ported rape victims. Since 1968, the forcible rape 
rate has increased 55 percent. In calendar year 
1973, the forcible rape rate increased 9 percent 
over 1972. 

The 58 core cities with populations in excess of 
250,000 experienced a victim risk rate of 100 per 
100,000 females. This is in marked contrast to 
the suburban areas of the country where the risk 
rate for females was 35 per 100,000 and the rural 
area with a risk rate of 23. In the Western States, 
a rate of 69 per 100,000 females was recorded. 
Females residing in the Southern States were victims 
of forcible rape at the rate of 46 per 100,000. The 
North Central and Northeastern States recorded 
rates of 43 and 37 per 100,000 females respectively. 

Nature of Offenses 

In 1973, 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, la,w 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 
were determined by investigation to be unfounded. 
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 1973 to 
law enforcement, 51 percent were cleared by 
arrest. This is a 9 percent decrease over the 
clearance rate for 1972. The large cities with 
250,000 or more people had a clearance rate of 

50 percent. The suburban areas of the country 
reported a 52 percent rate while the rural areas 
had a 66 percent clearance rate. Of the total 
clearances for forcible rape, 11 percent were by 
the arrest of persons under the age of 18. 

Persons Arrested 

The age grouping of males 16 to 24 years of age 
constituted the greatest concentration of arrests 
for forcible rape in 1973. Total arrests for this 
offense increased 12 percent with the arrest of 
persons under 18 years of age up 13 percent over 
1972. Sixty-one percent of the arrests for forcible 
rape during the year were of persons under the 
age of 25. All arrests for forcible rape in 1973 
compared to 1968 indicate an increase of 53 
percent. Figures for the same years indicate that 
arrests of persons under 18 years of age have 
increased 52 percent. In 1973, 47 percent of the 
persons arrested for forcible rape were Negroes, 

51 percent whites, and all other races comprised 
the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

Of all adults arrested for forcible rape in 1973, 
76 percent were prosecuted for this offense. 
Prosecutive problems accounted for acquittals 
and/or dismissals in 47 percent of the cases. 
Thirty-six percent of the adults prosecuted were 
found guilty of the substantive offense and 17 
percent were convicted of lesser offenses. Juvenile 
referrals amounted to 22 percent of the persons 
processed on forcible rape charges in 1973. 



ROBBERY 

Robbery is a vicious type of crime which takes 
place in the presence of the victim to obtain prop- 
erty 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, information con- 
cerning robbery is collected for armed robbery 
where any weapon is used, and strong-arm 
robbery where no weapon other than a personal 
weapon is used. The latter category includes 
crimes such as mugging, yoking, etc. 

Volume 

The volume of estimated robberies increased in 
1973 by 7,890 offenses from the prior year. There 
was an estimated total of 382,680 robbery offenses 
committed in the United States in 1973. This 
offense makes up 4 percent of the total Crime 
Index and compromises 44 percent of the crimes 
of violence. In 1973, these offenses occurred most 
frequently during the month of December. 

The heaviest volume of robbery offenses oc- 
curred in the Northeastern States with 33 percent 
of the total. The North Central States experienced 
25 percent, the Southern States 24 percent, and the 
remainder were reported in the Western States. 

Trend 

When the total robbery offenses occurring in 
1973 is compared with the 1972 total, a 2 percent 
increase is noted. Since 1968, robbery has in- 
creased 46 percent. 

Large core cities over 250,000 population re- 
ported a 2 percent decrease in robbery offenses in 
1973 when compared to the reported volume in 
1972. Suburban areas surrounding the lai^e core 
cities reported a 10 percent increase while the 
rural areas recorded an upward trend of 6 percent. 

Geographically, the Southern States experi- 
enced an 11 percent increase in robbery offenses. 
The Western and North Central States reported 
5 percent and 1 percent increases respectively. 
The Northeastern States reported a 4 percent 
decrease in robbery offenses. 

The accompanying chart depicts the trend in 
the volume of robbery and the robbery rate, 
1968-1973. (Chart 9) 

Robbery Rate

cities with more than 250,000 inhabitants ac- 
counted for two-thirds of all robberies which 
occurred in the United States during 1973. 

Cities with over 250,000 inhabitants had a rob- 
bery rate of 571 victims per 100,000 people. There 
were 76 robbery victims per 100,000 in the subur- 
ban areas, up 5 percent over the preceding year. 
The rural areas experienced a rate of 18 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 254 per 100,000 inhabitants. The 
Western States had a rate of 183, the North 
Central States 167, and the Southern States 142 
per 100,000 people. 

Nature of Robbery 

Supplemental robbery information is obtained 
from law enforcement agencies as a part of the 
monthly collection of statistical data under this 
Program. In 1973, these figures disclosed that half 
of the robberies were committed in the street. 
Nationally, bank robbery offenses decreased from 
2,618 oflFenses in 1972 to 2,521 in 1973. The 
average bank robbery dollar loss increased from 
$3,529 in 1972 to $4,653 in 1973. 

The 1968-1973 trends in robbery by type, as 
illustrated by the following charts, show bank 
robbery has increased 37 percent. During this 
same period, gas or service station holdups have 
decreased 6 percent; chain store robberies increased 
167 percent; street robberies 35 percent; robberies 
in residences 64 percent; and holdups of other 
commercial or business estabUshments rose 31 
percent. 

Armed perpetrators were responsible for 66 per- 
cent of the robbery offenses during 1973, while 
34 percent were muggings, yokings, or other violent 
confrontations where personal weapons were used 
by the offender to subdue or overcome the victim. 
Since 1968, armed robbery has increased 60 per- 
cent and strong-arm robbery 24 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 m prior issues of 
this publication, the full impact of this Adolent 
crime on the victim cannot be completely measured 
in terms of dollar loss alone. Wliile 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 
injury as a result of the attack. During 1973, 
the average value loss in each robbery incident 
was $261 for a total loss of $100 million. 

C/coroncej 

In 1973, law enforcement agencies were success- 
ful in clearing 27 percent of the robbery offenses 
reported. Eighty-two percent of the robberies 
which were cleared by arrest involved adults. 
Arrests of persons under 18 years of age figured 
in the clearance of 12 percent of the armed 
robberies and 29 percent of the strong-arm 
type. 

Persotts Arrested 

Nationally, arrests for robbery increased 4 per- 
cent in 1973 when compared to 1972. The greatest 
volume of arrests occurred in cities and were up 
3 percent. In the rural areas, arrests increased 21 
percent and in the suburban areas arrests increased 
17 percent. 

Examination of arrest data discloses that 76 
percent of the persons arrested for robbery were 
under 25 years of age and 56 percent were under 
21 years of age. Of all persons arrested for robbery, 
34 percent were under the age of 18. This greater 
proportion of youthful arrests, compared to clear- 
ances, is accounted for in part by the fact the 
young-age offenders frequently act in groups. Rob- 
bery arrests for this young-age group recorded a 
12 percent increase in 1973 over 1972. In the 
suburban areas young persons made up 30 percent 
of the arrests for this offense. The rural areas 
reported young offenders made up 18 percent of 
the total arrests for robbery. 

In 1973, 7 of every 100 persons arrested for 
robbery were females. Arrests of women for this 
offense rose 5 percent in 1973 when compared to 
1972.

From a standpoint of race, 63 percent of those 
arrested were Negro, 35 percent were white, and 
all other races made up the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

In 1973, 72 percent of all adults arrested for 
robbery were prosecuted. Thirty-five percent of 
the persons processed for this crime were juveniles 
whose cases were referred to juvenile court juris- 
diction. Of the adults prosecuted in 1973, 46 
percent were convicted of the substantive offense, 
16 percent were convicted for lesser charges, and 
the remainder were acquitted or their cases were 
dismissed. 

BURGLARY 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program de- 
fines burglary as the unlawful entry of a structure 
to commit a felony or theft. The use of force to gain 
entry is not required to classify the crime as a 
burglary. The offense of burglary in this Program 
is broken down into three subclassifications : 
forcible entry, unlawful entry where no force is 
used, and attempted forcible entry. 

Volume 

An estimated total of 2,540,900 burglaries oc- 
ciirred during 1973. The increase in the number of 
offenses from 1972 to 1973 was 188,100. In 1972, 
the large core cities over 250,000 inhabitants 
recorded 35 percent of the total burglary figure. 
For calendar year 1973, this decreased to 33 per- 
cent. Of the Crime Index offenses, burglary makes 
up 29 percent of the total. When viewed as a 
segment of property crime, burglary is found to 
comprise 33 percent of the total. Geographically, 
the Southern States reported 29 percent of the 
total volume, the Western States 25 percent, with 
the North Central States 24 percent and the 
Northeastern 22 percent. 

Viewed monthly the highest volume of burglary 
occurred in December of 1973. 

Trend 

The five-year trend, 1968-1973, indicates 
burglary offenses have risen 38 percent during 
the period. In 1973, burglary increased 8 percent 
from 1972 as compared to a decrease of 1 percent 
1972 over 1971. Cities over 250,000 population 
reported an increase of 4 percent. In 1972, these 
cities experienced a decrease of 7 percent in 
volume. In 1973, the suburban and rural areas 
of the nation reported increases of 10 and 8 
percent respectively. Viewed regionally, the South- 



em States reported a 12 percent increase and the 
North Central States a 9 percent increase in 
burglary offenses. The Western States experi- 
enced a 6 percent increase and the Northeastern 
States a 4 percent increase for this offense. 

Burglary Rate 

The burglary rate in 1973 was 1,211 per 100,000 
inhabitants. During the period of 1968-1973, 
this rate increased 31 percent. The burglary rate 
for 1973 increased 7 percent when compared 
with 1972. The large core cities with over 250,000 
inhabitants reported a rate of 1,949 burglaries 
per 100,000 people. The suburban areas experi- 
enced a rate of 1,054 offenses per 100,000 pop- 
ulation in 1973. The rural areas recorded a rate 
of 564 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants. 

The Western States again recorded the highest 
burglary rate in 1973 with 1,766 offenses per 
100,000 inhabitants followed by the North- 
eastern States with a rate of 1,124, the Southern 
States 1,117, and the North Central States 
1,040. 

Nature of Burglary 

Burglary is generally accepted as a crime of 
stealth and opportunity. It is committed by both 
amateurs and professionals. In 1973, 75 percent 
of the burglaries involved forcible entry, 18 per- 
cent were unlawful entry (without force) and 7 
percent were recorded as forcible entry attempts. 
Residential burglaries decreased from 63 percent 
of the total burglaries in 1972 to 62 percent in 
1973. Nonresidential offenses increased from 37 
percent in 1972 to 38 percent in 1973. Daytime 
burglaries of residences increased 9 percent in 
1973 and accounted for over half of the residential 
burglaries. Considering the period 1968-1973, 
there has been an increase of 56 percent in the 
volume of daytime residential burglaries. 

Prevention and detection of the burglary offense 
poses a most difl&cult 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, night- 
time burglary represents 61 percent of all bur- 
glaries. 

Economically, the offense of burglary represents 
a substantial sum. Victims suffered a loss of $856 
million in 1973 through the offense of burglary;

this is an increase of about $134 million from the 
1972 loss. During 1973, residential losses amounted 
to $543 million. In 1972, that loss amounted to 
$465 million. Nonresidential losses due to bur- 
glaries amounted to $313 million in 1973 and $258 
million in 1972. In 1973, the average dollar loss 
per burglary was $337. 

Clearances 

As suggested earlier, burglary is a crime of 
stealth. This characteristic tends to make the 
detection of the perpetrator more difficult. In 
1973, law enforcement was successful in clearing 
18 percent of the total burglary offenses. (Chart 16) 

Adults were involved in 67 percent of all cases 
cleared while young persons imder 18 years of age 
were involved in 33 percent. Law enforcement 
agencies in cities 250,000 and above cleared 19 
percent of these crimes in 1973. In the suburban 
areas 17 percent were solved while 19 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 1973, total arrests for burglary in- 
creased by 1 1 percent. Arrests of persons under the 
age of 18 increased 17 percent while arrests of 
persons 18 years and over increased 4 percent. 
In the cities and suburban areas, increases of 9 
and 17 percent respectively were reported. The 
rural areas experienced a 14 percent increase in 
total arrests for burglary. 

In analyzing the 1968-1973 period, a 19 percent 
increase in burglary arrests is seen. Arrests of 
individuals under the age of 18 increased 18 
percent, while the arrests of adult burglary 
offenders increased 20 percent. 

Nationally, persons under 25 accounted for 84 
percent of all arrests for burglary in 1973. Young 
persons under 18 accounted for 54 percent of all 
arrests for this crime. Females were involved in 
five of every 100 arrests for burglary during 1973. 
Arrests of whites outnumbered Negroes by 2 to 1. 

Persons Charged 

In 1973, 82 percent of the adults arrested for 
burglary were prosecuted. In 1972, this figure was 
80 percent. Of the adults prosecuted, 49 percent 
were found guilty as charged. Conviction for lesser 



offenses accounted for 18 percent and 33 percent 
were freed through acquittal or dismissal of 
charges. Juveniles referred to juvenile court 
jurisdiction accounted for 55 percent of all persons 
processed for burglary in 1973. 

LARCENY-THEFT 

Larceny-theft is the unlawful taking or stealing 
of property or articles 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 Re- 
porting Program tliis 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 1973, there were 4,304,400 offenses of 
larceny-theft which is an increase from 4,109,600 
such crimes in 1972. This offense makes up 50 
percent of the Crime Index total. From a seasonal 
standpoint, the volume of larceny was highest 
during the summer months of 1973. 

Geographically, the volume of larceny-theft 
was highest in the North Central States which 
reported 29 percent of the total number followed 
by the Southern States with 27 percent, the 
Western States with 26 percent, and the North- 
eastern States with 18 percent. 

Trend 

Larceny-theft increased 5 percent in 1973 when 
compared to the previous year. The large cities 
with over 250,000 inhabitants reported a decrease 
of less than 1 percent in the volume of this offense. 
The suburban areas reported an 8 percent in- 
crease in this offense and the rural areas showed 
an 11 percent increase. Nationwide, this offense 
has increased 25 percent since 1968. 

Geographically, the Western States reported 
an increase of less than 1 percent and the North- 
eastern States reported a 4 percent increase. 
The North Central States had an increase of 6 
percent and the Southern States recorded an 
increase of 8 percent. 

Larceny Rate 

During 1973, the larceny crime rate was 2,051 
offenses per 100,000 inhabitants, an increase of 
4 percent from the 1972 rate. The rate has in-

creased 19 percent since 1968. In 1973, the large 
core cities registered a larceny rate of 2,652 per 
100,000 inhabitants. The suburban larceny rate 
was 1,952 and the rural rate was 678. Viewed 
geographicaUy, the Western States reported the 
highest larceny rate with 3,032 offenses per 100,000 
inhabitants which was 1 percent below 1972. The 
North Central States had a rate of 2,132 up 6 
percent; the Southern States 1,792 up 6 percent; 
and the Northeastern States 1,579 reported an 
increase of 5 percent in the rate. 

Nature of Larceny-Theft 

The average value of property stolen in each 
larceny in 1973 was $140, up from $100 in 1968 
and $74 in 1960. When average value is appUed 
to the estimated crimes in this category, the dollar 
loss to victims was $603 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 1973, the average value of goods and property 
reported stolen from victims of pickpockets was 
$101, by purse-snatchers $62, by shoplifters $28, 
by thefts from autos $160, and by miscellaneous 
thefts from buildings $246.

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 liighly con- 
centrated. 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, 
33 percent, represented thefts of auto parts and 
accessories and other thefts from automobiles. 
Other major types of thefts which contributed 
to the large number of these crimes were thefts 
from buildings 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 18 percent of the total. 
The remainder was distributed among pocket- 
picking, purse-snatching, shoplifting, 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 1973, 19 percent of all 
larceny offenses brought to police attention were 
solved. Involvement of the young-age group is 
demonstrated by the fact that 37 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 40 percent and 27 
percent respectively. 

The larceny clearance percentage for the cities 
over 250,000 inhabitants was 20 percent. The 
suburbs and rural areas reported a 17 percent 
clearance rate. 

Persons Arrested 

Forty-seven percent of the total arrests for 
Crime Index offenses in 1973 were for larceny. 
Arrests for this crime increased 3 percent, 1973 
over 1972. Forty-eight percent of these arrests 
were of persons under 18 years of age and when

individuals under 21 were considered, the ratio 
rose to two-thirds. When examined by sex of 
arrested persons, it was determined that females 
comprised 32 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 arrested more often for larceny than 
any other offense in 1973. 

Arrests of females rose 8 percent in 1973; while 
arrests of males increased 2 percent. Arrests of 
whites outnumbered 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 1973 as compared 
with the 1968 figures indicates a 29 percent in- 
crease. Arrests of individuals under 18 were 12 
percent greater than 1968. The number of adult 
arrests rose 50 percent over the number of arrests 
for this offense in 1968. 

Persons Charged 

As in prior years, law enforcement agencies 
nationally charged more offenders for larceny- 
theft than for any other Crime Index offense. 
Sixty-nine percent of the adults prosecuted for 
larceny- theft were found guilty of this offense, 6 
percent were found guilty of a lesser charge, and 
25 percent had their cases dismissed or were ac- 
quitted. Thirty-nine percent of persons processed 
in 1973 for larceny were referred to juvenile court 
jurisdiction. 

AUTO THEFT 

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

Volume 

In 1973, 923,600 motor vehicles were reported 
stolen. This is a 5 percent increase compared to 

1972 when 882,200 motor vehicles were reported 
stolen. 

Geographically, the volume of auto theft in 

1973 was highest in the Northeastern States 
which reported 31 percent of the total number 
followed by the North Central States with 25 
percent. The Southern States reported 23 percent 
and the Western States reported the remainder. 
This crime made up 1 1 percent of the total Crime 
Index offense volume. Seasonal variations during 



1973 disclosed the volume of auto theft was highest 
during the month of October. 

Trend 

The number of auto thefts in 1973 increased 5 
percent compared to 1972. The number of auto 
thefts has increased 19 percent since 1968. 

Auto theft increased 1 percent in large cities 
with 250,000 or more inhabitants during 1973. 
The rural areas reported an increase of 15 percent 
in auto thefts while the suburban areas had an 
increase of 10 percent. 

Geographically, auto thefts were up 8 percent 
in the Southern States, the Northeastern States 
reported an increase of 7 percent, the North 
Central States an increase of 4 percent, and the 
Western States reported a decrease of 1 percent. 
The accompanying chart shows the trend in auto 
thefts, 1968-1973. 

Auto Theft Rate 

The 1973 auto theft rate of 440 offenses per 
100,000 inhabitants is 4 percent higher than in 
1972. Since 1968, the auto theft rate has risen 13 
percent. People in cities with over one milHon 
population were deprived more often of their 
motor vehicles in 1973 than in any other popula- 
tion group with 11 thefts per 1,000 inhabitants. 

Nationally, the auto theft rate in large core 
cities with 250,000 or more inhabitants was 978. 
The suburban areas had an auto theft rate of 307 
per 100,000 inhabitants in 1973. The rural areas 
had an auto theft rate of 83. 

Regionally, the Northeastern States had the 
highest auto theft rate in 1973. This rate was 582, 
an increase of 8 percent from 1972. The Western 
States had a rate of 542 per 100,000 inhabitants 
which was a decrease of 2 percent. The North 
Central States had a rate of 397 which was 4 
percent higher than the prior year and the 
Southern States reported an increase of 6 percent 
in the auto theft rate to 315 per 100,000 
inhabitants. 

Across the Nation in 1973, one of every 128 
registered automobiles was stolen. Regionally, 
this rate was the highest in the Northeastern 
States where 12 cars per 1,000 registered vehicles 
were stolen. In the other three regions the figures 
were 8 in the Western States, 7 in the North 
Central States, and 5 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 1973, the average value 
of stolen automobiles was $1,095 at the time of 
theft. 

Clearances 

Law enforcement agencies were successful in 
solving 16 percent of the auto thefts by arrest of 
the offender. 

In the Nation's largest cities, 14 percent of 
auto thefts were cleared during 1973. Police in 
the suburban areas were somewhat more success- 
ful, clearing 19 percent. Throughout the Nation, 
auto theft clearance percentages ranged from 22 
percent in the South Atlantic States to 11 percent 
in the New England 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, 32 percent of the auto thefts cleared 
were cleared by arrests in this age group while 
juveniles accounted for 38 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 1973, 56 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 
74 percent. 

The national trend in auto theft arrests disclosed 
an increase of 5 percent in 1973 when compared 
to 1972. Adult arrests decreased less than 1 per- 
cent while arrests of persons under 18 increased 
10 percent. During the period 1968-1973, auto 
theft arrests decreased 7 percent. 

Females under 18 years of age recorded an 
increase of 14 percent in arrests for auto theft 
over 1973. White persons made up 66 percent of 
the arrests for auto theft, Negroes 32 percent, 
and all other races accounted for the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

Police reports disclosed that of all persons 
formally processed for auto theft in 1973, 62 per- 
cent were referred to juvenile court jurisdiction. 



No other Crime Index offense results in such a 
liigh percentage of juvenile referrals. When the 
remaining adult offenders were considered as a 
group, 43 percent of those prosecuted on charges 
of auto theft were found guilty as charged, 15 
percent were convicted of lesser charges, and 42 
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 law enforcement at all levels 
throughout the United States. The NCIC sys- 
tem's stolen vehicle file provides law enforcement 
with the ability to immediately enter the auto 
theft record information. These agencies also have 
the ability to immediately modify the record in 
the system when the stolen vehicle is recovered. 

The NCIC system generally has on file approxi- 
mately 869,000 active stolen vehicle records. 

CLEARANCES 

Law enforcement agencies 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 
poUce 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. 

The nationwide clearance information as re- 
ported by law enforcement agencies shows that 21 
percent of the Index crimes were cleared during 
1973. In 1973 law enforcement agencies cleared 
79 percent of the murder offenses down from 82 
percent in 1972, 51 percent of forcible rapes com- 
pared with 57 percent the prior year, 63 percent 
of aggravated assaults compared with 66 percent 
in 1972, and 27 percent of the robberies down from 
30 percent the prior year. Solutions in the prop- 
erty crime categories showed police cleared 18 
percent of the burglaries in 1973 and 19 percent in 
1972, 19 percent of the larcenies compared with 
20 percent the prior year, and 16 percent of the 
auto thefts down from 17 percent in 1972. Police

are able to clear a higher percentage of the crimes 
against the person, not only because of the more 
intense investigative effort aflForded these violent 
crimes requiring police attention, but more im- 
portantly, 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 24 percent, followed by the North Central 
States with 22 percent, the Western States with 
21 percent, and the Northeastern States with 18 
percent. 

The accompanying chart reveals crime and 
poUce clearance experience for the last five years. 
From 1968 to 1973 the Crime Index offenses rose 

30 percent. Police response to this upward trend 
was a 32 percent increase in the number of Crime 
Index Offenses cleared and a 25 percent increase 
in the number of arrests for Crime Index offenses. 
The clearance rate for Crime Index type offenses 
for 1968 was 21 of every 100 which is approxi- 
mately the same rate for 1973. The clearance rate 
of 21 percent in 1973 was down from 22 percent 
in 1972. 

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 1973, 

31 percent of all Crime Index offenses solved 
involved only 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 1973, law enforcement agencies made an 
estimated 9 milUon arrests nationally for all 
criminal acts except traffic offenses. The arrest 
rate was 42 arrests for each 1,000 persons. In 
1972, there were 43 arrests for each 1,000 inhabi- 
tants. The arrest rate for big cities as a group was 
57 per 1,000 inhabitants, for suburban areas 32, 
and in the rural areas the arrest rate was 24. 

Arrests are primarily a measure of police 
activity. Arrest practices, policies, and enforce- 
ment 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 drunkenness, disorderly conduct, 



and certain local ordinances is particularly in- 
fluenced 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 involvement in criminal 
acts by the age, sex, and race of the perpetrators, 
particularly for those crimes wliich have a high 
solution rate. Procedures used in this Program 
require that an arrest be counted on each separate 
occasion when a person is taken into custody, 
notified, or cited. Arrests do not measure the 
number of individuals taken into custody since 
one person may be arrested several times during 
the year for the same or different offenses. As 
noted above, this happens frequently for certain 
types of offenses against public order such as 
drunkenness, vagrancy, disorderly conduct, and 
related violations. 

Arrest Trends 

In 1973, police arrests for all offenses except 
traffic increased 3 percent over 1972. During 
this time, arrests of persons under 18 years of 
age increased 5 percent and arrests of persons 
18 years of age and over increased 3 percent. 
When only Crime Index offenses are used to 
compute this trend, there is a 6 percent increase 
for all ages. 

During the five-year period, 1968-1973, police 
arrests for all offenses except traffic increased 13 
percent with the arrests of persons under 18 years 
of age up 15 percent and the arrests of persons 
18 years of age and over up 13 percent. When 
only the Crime Index offenses are used in com- 
puting this five-year trend, the increase was 25 
percent. Arrested persons under 18 years of age 
increased 13 percent while the adult arrests 
increased 36 percent. Violent crime arrests for 
persons under 18 years of age increased 53 per- 
cent while the property crime arrests increased 
10 percent. Adult arrests for violent crime in- 
creased 35 percent and property crimes were up 
36 percent. 

Age 

Nationally, persons under 15 years of age made 
up 9 percent of the total police arrests; under 18, 
26 percent; under 21, 41 percent; and under 25, 
55 percent. In the suburban areas, the involve- 
ment of the young-age groups in 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 
percent; and under 25, 63 percent. In the rural 
areas the distributions were lower for the younger 
age groups with the under 15 group bemg involved 
in 5 percent; under 18 in 20 percent; under 21 in 
37 percent; and those under 25 in 54 percent of 
total police arrests. When only the Index crimes 
are considered, 19 percent of all arrests in 1973 
were for persons under the age of 15 and 45 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 1973, 57 percent of the 
individuals arrested for violations of the Narcotic 
Drug Laws were persons under 21 years of age. 
Twenty-six percent of the marijuana arrests in 
1973 were persons vinder the age of 18 and 57 
percent of the arrests for this offense involved 
persons under 21 years of age. 

Arrests for Narcotic Drug Law violations, 1973 
over 1972, were up 19 percent nationally. From 
1968 to 1973, arrests for this violation increased 
174 percent. There is set forth a tabulation by 
geographic region showing the type of narcotic 
drug involved in the arrest of the offender in 1973.

Sex 

Male arrests outnumbered female arrests by 
almost 6 to 1 in 1973. Male arrests in 1973 rose by 
3 percent while female arrests were up 4 percent. 
Nineteen percent of arrests for Crime Index 
offenses were of female persons. Ten percent of 
the arrests for violent crimes in 1973 involved 
females and arrests of females for these types of 
crimes increased 8 percent over 1972. Again, as 
in prior years, their involvement was primarily 



for larceny which accounted for 20 percent of all 
female arrests. Females accounted for 24 percent 
of the embezzlement and 14 percent of the nar- 
cotics arrests. Over one-half of the runaway — 
police custody cases — were girls under 18 years 
of age. 

The five-year arrest trends, 1968-1973, revealed 
that arrests for young females xmder 18 years 
of age increased 35 percent while arrests for young 
males under 18 rose 10 percent. When the serious 
crimes as a group are considered, arrests of males, 
1968-1973, were up 8 percent and female arrests 
increased 52 percent.

PERSONS CHARGED 

Disposition data reveals the results of cases in 
which law enforcement agencies have made an 
arrest and subsequently formally charged the 
offender in a court of jurisdiction. This information 
is important to the law enforcement administrator 
in evaluating the quaUty of investigations and 
court presentation functions. 

In 1973, 89 percent of the adults arrested for 
Crime Index offenses were prosecuted in the courts. 
Of the adults prosecuted for Crime Index offenses, 
58 percent were foimd guilty as charged and 11 
percent of a lesser charge. 

It must be recognized that not all arrested per- 
sons are turned over to the courts for prosecution. 
There are various reasons for this: failure of the 
victim to cooperate or appear for the prosecution, 
persons arrested are released with a warning, 
evidence is obtained which discloses the arrested 



34 



person did not commit the offense, or there is not 
sufficient evidence available 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- 
taining this data commence on page 119. 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 connection with specific 
criminal acts. 

Forty-two percent of the persons processed for 
Crime Index offenses were young persons referred 
to juvenile court jurisdiction. Similar to prior 
years, juvenile referrals for auto theft were 
significant. Sixty-two percent of those processed 
for auto theft were juveniles. JuvenOe referrals 
for burglary were 55 percent, larceny 39 percent, 
robbery 35 percent, forcible rape 22 percent, 
aggravated assault 17 percent, and murder 11 
percent. 

During 1973, as in past years, auto theft, arson, 
burglary, and vandalism recorded high percent- 
ages of juvenile referrals. When all crime cate- 
gories are reviewed, it is noted that convictions 
on original charges remained high in the offenses 
against public order and decency — driving under 
the influence, drunkenness, disorderly conduct, 
and vagrancy. 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, 31 percent were acquitted or their 
cases were dismissed. In 1973, 33 percent of the 
murder defendants were either acquitted or their 
cases dismissed at some prosecutive stage. Forty- 
seven percent of those charged with forcible rape 
were acquitted or had their cases dismissed, and 
44 percent of the persons charged with aggravated 
assault were released either through acquittal 
or dismissal. 

Sixty-nine percent of those persons prosecuted 
for the offense of larceny were found guilty of 
that offense in 1973. This was followed by bur- 
glary with 49 percent found guilty of the original 



charge, 46 percent for robbery, 45 percent for 
murder, 43 percent for auto theft, 39 percent 
for aggravated assault, and 36 percent for forcible 
rape. 

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. 

LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE DATA 

Tliis pubUcation has a section with tables of 
Law Enforcement Emploj^ee Data which shows 
average pohce employee strength by geographic 
division and population group. This data is sub- 
divided by sex of employees, percentage of 
civihan employees, number and type of patrol 
assignments, and an individualized listing of 
poUce employees by reporting cities and sur- 
rounding suburban counties. Tables containing 
data relative to law enforcement officers assaulted 
in the line of duty are published to supplement the 
following narrative material. 

Employee Rates 

The average number of law enforcement em- 
ployees per 1,000 inhabitants (including civilian 
employees) was 2.4, which has remained constant 
since 1971. Male employees represented 90.6 
percent of total poHce emplo3^ee strength. 

Many cities in the United States 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 in cities had 
police ratios ranging from 1.4 to 2.4 police em- 
ployees per 1,000 inhabitants. 

Nationally, large cities with 250,000 or more 
inhabitants as a group had an average ratio of 3.4 
employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 

The average ratio of pohce employees to popu- 
lation in the suburban areas was 1.9 per 1,000 
inhabitants; an increase from the 1.8 rate in 1972. 
One-half of the suburban police departments had 
from 1.2 to 2.3 employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 
The average rate of full-time employees in sheriff's 
departments was 1.5 per 1,000 inhabitants; how- 
ever, in three-fourths of the departments the 
rate was 1.3 or less. 

Police departments in the Middle Atlantic and 
South Atlantic States continued to have the 
highest average rate with 2.9 employees per 1,000 
inhabitants. Cities in the West South Central

and West North Central States had the lowest 
average ratio with 2.0. 

Civilian Employees 

In Table 60, the percentage of total law enforce- 
ment personnel represented by civilian employees 
is tabulated by population group. On the average 
during 1973, 14.6 percent of all city police person- 
nel were civilian employees; up from 1.3.3 percent 
in 1972. Of all civilian employees, 54 percent were 
female and 46 percent were male personnel. Law 
enforcement administrators are continuing to 
utiHze greater numbers of civihan employees, 
thereby relieving sworn personnel for active 
poUce duties. 

Sworn Personnel 

Law enforcement employee rates based on 
sworn personnel only (excluding civilian em- 
ployees) show that the average for all cities was 
2.1 in 1973 compared to the 1972 rate of 2.0 per 
1,000 inhabitants. The city rates, nationally, 
range from 0.1 to 7.1 per 1,000 inhabitants. In 
city agencies, males represented 98 percent of 
all sworn personnel, while males in suburban 
agencies constituted 96 percent and in county 
sherifip and police departments 93 percent. The 
average ratio of sworn employees in sheriff's 
departments was 1.2 per 1,000 inhabitants and 
the rate range for the 2,427 reporting county 
agencies was 0.1-10.0 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 increased 
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 commu- 
nity 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' responsibilities are limited almost 
exclusively to civil functions and/or the administra- 
tion of the county jail faciUties. The sheriffs' 



departments used in computing rates, however, 
are all engaged in law enforcement activity and are 
responsible for all phases of policing in their 
jurisdiction. 

It is pointed out that the figures set forth in 
detailed police employee tables (Tables 52 and 53) 
represent national averages. They should be used 
as a guide or indicator and not considered as 
recommended or desirable poUce strengths. Ade- 
quate manpower for a specific place can only be 
determined after a careful study and analysis of 
the various factors which contribute to the require- 
ment for police service in that community. 

Police Patrols 

In 1973, 85 percent of the police patrol assign- 
ments utilized in cities were vehicle patrols, and 
15 percent were foot patrols. In cities with over 
250,000 inhabitants 73 percent were vehicle 
patrols and 27 percent were foot patrols. In the 
areas covered by sheriffs and county poUce 
departments, 94 percent were vehicle patrols and 6 
percent were foot patrols. For all cities, patrol 
distribution mdicated that 35 percent of the patrol 
activity was during the day, 35 percent during the 
evening hours, and after midnight 30 percent. 
Large cities over 250,000 inhabitants showed that 
approximately 40 percent of the patrol activity 
was during the day, 36 percent during the evening 
hours, and 25 percent after midnight. In the areas 
covered by sheriffs and county police, 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 
patrol assignments for all cities indicated that 86 
percent of the vehicle patrols during the day in- 
volved one-man cars, 76 percent during the eve- 
ning hours, and after midnight 74 percent. In the 
large cities with 250,000 or more inhabitants, 74 
percent of the daytime patrols involved the use of 
one-man cars, 62 percent during the evening 
hours, and after midnight 59 percent. In the areas 
covered by sheriffs and county police departments, 
90 percent of the daytime patrols involved the use 
of one-man cars, 82 percent during the evening 
hours, and after midnight 79 percent were one-man 
vehicles. 

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED

ous criminal action in the United States. During 
the ten-year period 1964-1973, 858 officers were 
killed. Specifically, there were 57 officers killed in 
1964; 53 in 1965; 57 in 1966; 76 in 1967; 64 in 
1968; 86 in 1969; 100 in 1970; 126 in 1971; 112 in 
1972; and 127 in 1973. A greater number of law 
enforcement officers were killed in 1973 than in 
any year since 1961, when the FBI began the 
comprehensive analysis of this data. 

The number of law enforcement officers of 
Puerto Rico feloniously killed has not been tabu- 
lated with those in the United States for the ten- 
year period. An overview of these killings is pre- 
sented for the three-year period of 1971-1973. 
Nine officers were killed due to criminal action in 
Puerto Rico in this time period. Specifically, three 
officers were killed in 1971 ; two in 1972; and four 
in 1973. The kiUiag of eight officers was effected 
through the use of firearms, and a knife was used 
to kill one officer. The most frequent types of 
activity under which these officers were slain were 
disturbance call situations and civil disorders. 

Circumstances Surrounding Deaths 

Examination of circumstances under which 
police officers were slain during the period 1964- 
1973 continues to disclose that more officers were 
killed attempting arrests than in any other matter. 
There remains an urgent need for officers to be 
more alert in coimection with all their assign- 
ments, regardless of how routine these assignments 
may seem or have been in the past. No arrest 
situation can be considered routine and it is thus 
essential that officers be extremely alert with all 
individuals they contact. During 1973, 19 officers 
were killed while attempting arrest for crimes 
other than robbery or burglary. Twenty-seven 



officers were slain by persons they encountered 
during the commission of a robbery, or during 
pursuit of robbery suspects. In connection with 
the crime of burglary, eight officers were killed at 
the scene of burglaries or while pursuing burglary 
suspects. 

During the period 1969-1973, 56 officers were 
slain in ambush situations. Thirty-one of these 
officers were entrapped and slain through pre- 
meditated action. Twenty-five of the officers 
were killed in unprovoked attacks which did not 
involve any apparent element of entrapment. 

In 1973, three officers were slain by mentally 
deranged persons. During the period 1964-1973, 
a total of 38 officers were killed by mentally 
deranged persons. 

Twenty-five officers were slain while making 
traffic stops in 1973. Nine officers were killed while 
investigating suspicious persons or circumstances 
and 29 were slain responding to "disturbance calls" 
involving such things as family quarrels, man with 
gun, etc. Six officers were slain while transporting 
or otherwise engaged in custody of prisoners and 
one officer was kiUed while handling a civil disorder. 

In 1973, 47 of the slain officers utilized their 
service firearms when confronted by their assail- 
ants. Thirty-four of these officers fired their service 
firearms while attempting to protect themselves. 
Fifty-six percent (or 71) 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, 96 of the 127 
officers slain were within ten feet of their assailants 
when they were killed. 

In 1973, 60 officers were slain in the Southern 
States, 30 in the Western States, 20 in the North 
Central States, and 17 m the Northeastern States.

The following chart shows the number of law 
enforcement officers killed by region for each of 
the two five-year periods, 1964-1968 and 1969-1973. 
An accompanying table shows the officers feloni- 
ously killed by geographic division and population 
grouping in 1973. 

Weapons Used 

One hundred twenty of the police kiUings in 
1973 were perpetrated through the use of fire- 
arms. Eighty-six of these deaths were committed 
through the use of handguns, 21 with rifles, and 
shotgims were used to kill 13 of the officers. 
Seventeen percent (or 21) of the officers slain had 
their own weapons used against them by the 
assailants. Two policemen met death as a result 
of assaults with knives, while two officers were 
killed through the use of blunt instruments. 
Three officers were feloniously killed through the 
use of automobiles while attempting to arrest 
their assailants. 

During the period 1964-1973, firearms were 
used by felons to commit 95 percent of the police 
killings. Seventy-one percent of the weapons used 
were handguns. Specifically, of the 858 law 
enforcement officers slain by criminal action dur- 
ing this period, 613 were killed through the use of 
handguns, 104 with rifles, 101 with shotguns, 
eleven with knives, three with bombs, nine with 
personal weapons such as hands, fists, and feet, 
and 17 by other means such as clubs, automobiles, 
etc. A total of 120 officers, or 14 percent, were 
slain with their own firearms. 

The accompanying table shows the type of 
weapons used to kill law enforcement officers from 
1964 through 1973.

Types of Assignment 

Officers who are assigned patrol duties within 
law enforcement organizations have the most 
hazardous type of assignment. During the course 
of his duties the patrol officer is frequently in 
contact with suspicious individuals. Each of 
these situations 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 frequently must determine quickly 
and accurately if a person is involved in a criminal 
act. If that person constitutes a danger to his, 
the officer's, personal safety, he must afford himself 
reasonable protection. The patrol officer must

also react to situations as they occur without the 
benefit of detailed information or planning, and 
thus, he places himself in a variety of dangerous 
situations. The patrol officer risks attack through 
frequent encounters with criminal offenders at 
or near crime scenes. These perils are substan- 
tiated by the fact that officers assigned to patrol 
duty are the most frequent targets of the police 
killer. Officers assigned in other capacities are 
confronted with equally tense and dangerous 
types of situations while performing their duties, 
but not with the same frequency. 

During 1973, 91 patrol officers were slain. 
Eighty-eight of these officers were assigned to 
patrol vehicles while three were foot patrolmen. 
Twenty-five officers were detectives or officers 
on special assignments. During 1973, in the highest 
tradition of the law enforcement profession, 
eleven officers, while in an off-duty status, were 
takmg appropriate pohce action concerning crunes 
committed in their presence when they were 
slain. Six of the off-duty officers were slain by 
persons they encountered during the commission 
of a robbery, or while in pursuit of robbery sus- 
pects. During the period 1964-1973, 68 percent 
(or 587) of the 858 officers slain by felons were 



assigned to patrol duties. In 1973, 50 of the on- 
duty officers were alone and unassisted when 
killed. During the period 1964-1973, 35 percent 
(or 299) of the officers were alone and unassisted 
when they gave their lives for the communities 
they were sworn to protect. Information is set 
forth in the following tables concerning types of 
assignment and circumstances involved in con- 
nection with the kilhngs of officers during the 
periods 1964-1968 and 1969-1973. 

Time of Police Killings 

The month of January proved to be the most 
dangerous for law enforcement officers during 
1973. During this month 19 officers were felo- 
niously slain. 

In 1973, Sunday was the most dangerous day 
of the week for law enforcement officers. During 
the period 1964-1973, 140 officers were killed on 
Friday, 128 on Saturday, 127 on Sunday, 124 on 
Wednesday, 122 on Monday, 114 on Thursday, 
and 103 on Tuesday. 

During the period 1969-1973, Sunday was the 
most dangerous day with 92 officers slain followed 
by Friday with 90, Monday 79, Saturday 78, 
Wednesday 75, Thursday 73, and Tuesday 64.

tion concerning law enforcement officers who were 
killed as a result of felonious criminal action. The 
leading cause of accidental deaths in the law 
enforcement profession is automobile accidents, 
which have claimed the lives of 196 officers. 
Sixty-eight officers have been killed in accidents 
involving motorcycles. Fifty-six 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 fire- 
arms were accidentally discharged, helicopter 
and plane crashes, falls, etc. These latter types of 
accidents claimed the lives of 16 officers in 1973. 

ASSAULTS ON LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS 

The following information is based on a detailed 
monthly collection of data in the Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program regarding the problem of 
assaults on local, county, and state law enforce- 
ment 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 en- 
forcement in certain elements of our society. 

The uniformed officer is the target of persons 
with real or imagined grievances against the 
"system." He also is, in many instances, the first 
person to render aid to mentally deranged in- 
dividuals, 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 1973, 32,535 assaults on police were re- 
ported by 4,072 agencies covering an estimated 
population of 108,532,000. There were, in 1973, an 
estimated 62,300 assaults on poUce 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 (Table 64) 
discloses that the greatest number of assaults, 26 
percent, were in responding to disturbance calls. 
The second highest incidence activity, 23 percent 
of the assaults, was "attempting arrests" other 
than burglary or robbery. Any officer who has 
answered disturbance calls remembers the situa- 
tions when he became a substitute target in a 
husband and wife quarrel or an arbitrator in a 



customer-proprietor argument. The high incidence 
of assaults in these common and often repeated 
poUce activities should serve as an impetus for 
greater alertness to all police personnel. The officer 
must avoid becoming complacent in his pursuit of 
any type of police activity. The police adminis- 
trator or command officer should consider pro- 
cedures 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 

The distribution of weapons used to assault 
officers is shown by geographic division, population 
group, and types of activity in Tables 61 and 62. 
Nationwide, personal weapons such as hands, fists, 
feet, etc., were used in 80 percent of the assaults 
on officers in 1973. Cities with population between 
50,000 and 100,000 had the highest mcidence of 
assaults with personal weapons accounting for 89 
percent. The greatest percentage of assaults with 
firearms, 10 percent, occurred in cities with over 
250,000 population. These large cities also showed 
the highest percentage of assaults with knife, 
4 percent. By geographic division, the highest 
incidence of assaults with personal weapons 
occurred in the Pacific States with 86 percent. 

Type of Assignment 

Of those officers assaulted in 1973, Tables 66 and 
67 show the type of assignment of the officer 
assaulted as 42 percent in two-man vehicles, 37 
percent in one-man vehicles, 7 percent on detective 
or special assignment, and 14 percent in other 
assignments. In the highest assault incidence ac- 
tivity of police responding to disturbance calls, 47 
percent of the victims were in two-man vehicles, 
43 percent in one-man vehicles, 3 percent in detec- 
tive or special assignment, and 7 percent in other 
assignments. The vehicle patrol officer is the victim 
of assault in 79 percent of the total assaults on 
police. 

Injuries to Law Enforcement Officers 

Assaults on officers resulted in 40 cases of serious 
personal injury to every 100 officers assaulted. The 
rates (Table 61) showed assault with injury to 8 
officers per 100 in the Mountain division as con- 
trasted with 4.2 per 100 in the East South Central 
division. The national rate of injuries to law en- 
forcement 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 



47 



cities under 10,000 inhabitants had the lowest 
rate with 3.6 per 100. 

Time of Assault 

Assaults on officers by time and population 
group are set forth in Table 65. 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. 
Cities and counties recorded the largest number of 
assaults against officers in this time period, with 
the exception of the cities with under 10,000 
inhabitants. Cities in this population group showed 
the greatest assault incidence from 8:00 p.m. to 
10:00 p.m. 



Clearances in Assaults on Police 

Nationwide in 1973, 91 percent of police assaults 
were cleared by arrest. In cities 100,000 to 250,000, 
this clearance percentage was highest of any 
population group with 94 percent being cleared. 
Assaults of police in disturbance matters were 
cleared at the rate of 97 percent in cities 100,000 
to 250,000. 

By police activity, the highest clearance rate 
for all agencies was 92.8 percent which occurred 
in assaults on officers who were attempting arrests 
other than for burglary or robbery. Ambush 
attacks accounted for the lowest clearance rate 
with 50 percent. Table 68 shows the percentage of 
assaults cleared by type of activity and population 
group.

SUMMARY OF UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 



Uniform Crime Reports provides a nationwide 
view of crime based on the voluntary submission 
of police statistics by city, county, and state law 
enforcement agencies throughout the country. 
The extent of coverage as demonstrated by this 
publication is a tribute to the cooperative and 
dedicated spirit of the law enforcement com- 
munity 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 
voluntary 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 PoHce (lACP). In that 
same year, the Federal Bureau of Investigation 
(FBI) was authorized by the Congress of the 
United States to serve as the national clearing- 
house for statistical information on crime. Crime 
reports are obtained from law enforcement agencies 
throughout the Nation based on uniform classifi- 
cations and procedures of reporting. Information 
regarding crime is available to law enforcement 
in a variety of data spheres, e.g., offenses, arrests, 
prosecutions, convictions, and confinements. In 
an effort to provide 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 offenses that became known 
to police. Greater numbers of these data were 
available than in any other category of reportable 
crime information. A meaningful overview of 
crime was available through examination of seven 
offenses wliich were selected because of their 
seriousness, frequency in occurrence, and likeU- 
hood of being reported to police. These offenses, 
known as the Crime Index offenses, were murder, 
forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, bur- 
glary, larceny-theft, 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 crimi- 



nal offenses in the states and localities. Reporting 
agencies are required to interpret local criminal 
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 Pro- 
gram 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 Operations Division 
of the lACP is also playing an active and effective 
part in quaUty control through surveys of police 
records and crime reporting systems. Dr. Peter P. 
Lejins, Director, Institute of Criminal Justice 
and Crimmology, University of Maryland, Col- 
lege Park, Maryland, continues as a consultant 
to the FBI in the conduct of this 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 membership and the national Uni- 
form Crime Reportmg Program. This Committee 
actively encourages sheriffs throughout the coun- 
try to fully participate in this important Program. 
Committees on Uniform Crune Reporting 
within state law enforcement associations are 
active in promoting interest in the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program, fostering widespread 
and more intelligent use of uniform crime statistics, 
and lending assistance to contributors when the 
need exists. 

In recent years, the FBI has actively assisted 
individual states in the development of statewide 
programs of police statistics compatible with the 
national system. These state statistical programs 
provide the advantage of increased coverage of 
law enforcement agencies due to state 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. 



50 



Through coordination by the state data collection 
agency, information is more readily available for 
the use of the state. The collection and reporting 
machinery for the national Program also is 
substantially streamlined. 

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 22 states now 
operating state Uniform Crime Reporting Pro- 
grams. These include Arkansas, California, 
Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, 
Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, 
New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Okla- 
homa, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South 
Carolina, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. Several 
other states are in various stages of development. 
The conditions under which these systems are 
developed provide for consistency and compara- 
bility in the data submitted to the national 
Program. They also permit regular and timely 
reporting of the national crime data. These con- 
ditions 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 criminal justice agency must have a 
proven, effective, mandatory, statewide Program 
and have instituted acceptable quality control 
procedures. (3) Coverage within the state by a 
state agency must be, at least, equal to that 
attained by Uniform Crime Reports. (4) The 
state agency must have adequate field staff as- 
signed to conduct audits and to assist local units 
in record practices and crime reporting procedures. 
(5) The state agency must furnish to the FBI all 
of the detaUed 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 wiU 
reinstitute a direct collection of Uniform Crime 
Reports from law enforcement agencies 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 in- 
tended for the use and information of other pro- 
fessionals and scholars who have an interest in 
the crime problem. At the same time, this infor- 
mation is important as a reference source for the 
public as an indicator of the crime factor in our 
society. 

The means utiHzed to attain these objectives 
are: 

(1) To measure the extent, fluctuation, distri- 
bution, and nature of serious crime in the Unit«d 
States through presentation of data on the seven 
Crime Index offenses. 

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

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

Reporting Procedure 

In the national Uniform Crime Reporting Pro- 
gram, 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 uni- 
formity in the data received, furnishes to the 
contributing agencies, upon their request, training 
in Uniform Crime Reporting procedures. All con- 
tributors, also, are furnished with the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Handbook which outlines in 
detail, procedures for scoring and classifying 
offenses. The Handbook illustrates and discusses 
the monthly and annual reporting forms as well 



51 



as the numerous tally sheets made available to 
facilitate the periodic tabulation of desired data. 
The publication of the Uniform Crime Report- 
mg "Newsletter," which was initiated in October, 
1963, has continued with issues published when 
pertinent. This "Newsletter" is utihzed to explain 
revisions in the Program as well as to present 
information and instructional material to assist 
contributors. 

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 available 
upon request to any law enforcement agency the 
Manual oj Police Records, which can serve as a 
guide in the establishment or modification of a 
basic, nonautomated poHce record system. Special 
Agents of the FBI are utilized to encourage new 
Uniform Crime Reportmg contributors and to 
assist them in the estabUshed reporting 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 m the following crime categories: mur- 
der and nonnegligent manslaughter, manslaughter 
by negligence, forcible rape, robbery, assault, 
burglary, larceny-theft, 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 deter- 
mined through investigation 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 whether or 
not anyone is arrested for the crime; the stolen 
property is recovered; prosecution is undertaken; 
or any other restrictive consideration is in effect. 
Law enforcement 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 the property stolen and 
recovered during the month are also reported. 

Arrests are reported monthly for all criminal 
acts, except traflfic violations, by crime category 
and include the age, sex, and race of each person 
arrested. A report is also submitted on an annual 
basis concerning the number of persons formally 



charged by crime classification and the disposi- 
tion of such charges. 

Law enforcement employee data specifically 
encompass the number of fuUtime sworn officers 
and other personnel. This information is collected 
as of October .31 of each calendar year. State Uni- 
form Crime Reporting Programs are encouraged to 
maintain this same method and scope of data 
collection for a reasonable period before expanding 
their efforts. In January, 1972, a monthy col- 
lection in the national Program was instituted 
concerning the number of law enforcement officers 
assaulted by type of duty assignment. Additional 
information is collected relative to the type of 
weapon used, the circumstances of the assault, 
and whether the victim officer sustained injury. 

Reporting Area 

During calendar year 1973, crime reports were 
received from law enforcement agencies represent- 
ing 97 percent of the United States population 
living in the standard metropohtan statistical 
areas, 90 percent of the population in other cities, 
and 80 percent of the rural population. The 
combined coverage accounts for 93 percent of 
the total national population. 

Presentation of crune 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- 
pohtan statistical areas. In addition, statistics are 
presented in certain tables relative to "suburban" 
areas. A suburban area consists of cities with 
population less than 50,000 together with counties 
which are within a standard metropolitan statis- 
tical area. In this use of suburban, the major 
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 metropohtan statistical areas are 
generally made up of an entire county or counties 
having at least one core city of 50,000 or more 
mhabitants, with the whole area having certam 
metropohtan characteristics. In New England, 
"town" instead of "county" is used to describe 
standard metropolitan statistical areas. These 
towns do not comcide generally with established 



52 



reporting units; therefore, metropolitan state 
economic areas in New England are used in these 
areas' tabulations since they encompass an entire 
county or counties. Standard metropolitan statis- 
tical areas, as used in this pubUcation, make up 
approximately 73 percent of the total United 
States population. 

"Other cities" are urban places outside stan- 
dard metropolitan statistical areas. Most of these 
places are incorporated and comprise 11 percent 
of the 1973 population. Rural areas are made up 
of the unincorporated portions of counties outside 
of urban places and standard metropolitan statisti- 
cal areas and represent 16 percent of our national 
population. Throughout this Program, sheriffs, 
county pohce, and many state poHce report on 
crimes committed within the limits of the counties 
but outside cities while local police report on 
crime committed within 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 11,000 jurisdictions, the 
problems of attaining uniformity are readily 
apparent. Issuance of instructions does not com- 
plete the role of the FBI. On the contrary, it is 
standard operating procedure to examine each 
incoming report not only for arithmetical accuracy 
but also, and possibly of even more importance, 
for reasonableness as a possible indication of error. 

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 
procedures. Necessary arithmetic adjustments or 
unusual variations are brought to the attention of 
the submitting agency by correspondence. During 
1973, 19,200 communications were addressed to 
contributors primarily as a result of editing and 
evaluation processes. Correspondence with con- 
tributors is the principal tool for supervision of 
quaUty. Not only are individual reports studied, 
but also periodic trends for individual reporting 
units are prepared. Crime rates for all units are 
grouped for general comparability to assist in 
detecting variations and fluctuations possibly due 
to some reason other than chance. For the most 
part, the problem is one of keeping the contributors 
aware of the type of information necessary for the 
success of this Program. 



The elimination of dupUcation in 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 poUce in urban places, lists of urban 
places by county are furnished to sheriffs, coimty 
police, and in some instances state police organi- 
zations. 

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 coopera- 
tion of new contributors and to explain the purpose 
of this Program and the methods of assembling 
information for reporting. When correspondence, 
including specially designed questionnaires, do 
not ehcit a response. Special Agents may be 
directed to visit the contributor to satisfactorily 
resolve the misimderstanding. 

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 persona] visit to the local department 
to cooperatively assist in a needed revision of 
records and reporting methods. 

Regardless of the extent of the statistical veri- 
fication processes used by the FBI, the accuracy 
of the data assembled under this Program depends 
upon the sincere effort exerted by each contributor 
to meet the necessary standards of reporting. For 
this reason, the FBI is not in a position to vouch 
for the validity of individual agency reports. 

The Crime Totals 

Communities not represented by crime reports 
are relatively few. An examination of the tables 
which follow show 1973 crime totals for the Index 
classifications and the extent of coverage of the 
data in a particular table. The FBI conducts a 
continuing Program to further reduce the unre- 
ported 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 metro- 
politan statistical, other urban, and rural — ^it is 
assumed that the unreported portion had the same 
proportionate crime experience as that for which 
reports were received. In lieu of figures for the 
entire year from those agencies, reports for as 
many as nine months are accepted as a sufficient 



53 



data base on which to base estimates for the year. 
Estimates for unreported areas are based on the 
reported crime experience of similar areas. Certain 
refinements are made 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, geo- 
graphic, and area trends are always established 
on the basis of two consecutive years. Exclusions 
from trend computations are made when figures 
from a reporting unit are obviously inaccurate for 
any period or when it is ascertained that unusual 
fluctuations are due to such variables as improved 
records procedures. 

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 1973, for exam- 
ple, more than 2,500 letters were sent to police 
administrators of contributing agencies inquiring 
as to the reason for significant increases or de- 
creases in pertinent crime classifications. The com- 
munication contaming 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 vaUd and may be 
used to reasonably establish long term trends as 
well as to reestimate crime volume and reconstruct 
crime trends for prior years. It can be assumed 
logically that the current year is the most complete 
in terms of volume. Trend or percent change as 
established by comparable units for each two-year 
period is then applied as the basis for 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 cur- 
rent 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, 
1973, were used. Population estimates for in- 
dividual cities and counties were prepared using 
special census reports, state sources and estimates, 
commercial sources, and extrapolation where no 
other estimate was available. Complete 1973 
population estimates for individual cities and 
counties were used from 14 states while official 
sources in other states provided limited data which 
was used selectively. The estimated United States 
population increase in 1973 was nearly 1 percent 
over 1972 according 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 dupHcative 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 dis- 
cussion 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 definition 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 temporary solution to the problem. In the 
latter part of 1972 consideration by the FBI, the 
Committee, the operatmg state programs, and 
several large city police departments resulted in 
the adoption of "total larceny-theft" as a replace- 
ment for the Crime Index offense of "larceny $50 
and over in value." This new classification includes 
the total number of larceny-theft offenses known 
to police without regard to value. The Index 
offense of "total larceny-theft" was instituted as 
of January, 1973. 



54 



In the interest of maintaining comparability of 
data in this larceny classification, contributing 
agencies continued reporting larceny offenses with 
the $50 breakdown during 1973. 

The lACP Committee on Uniform Crime Rec- 
ords adopted certain changes in the Program to be 
instituted in January, 1974. Due to law enforce- 
ments' concern over the robbery problem, an 
expansion of the sub-breakdowns of robbery inci- 
dents was adopted. Prior to 1974, robbery was 
viewed as either armed or strong-armed. The 
breakdowns for 1974 information will be firearm, 
knife or cutting instrument, other dangerous 
weapons, and strong-arm. The collection of the 
data in this fashion will enhance the specificity of 
type of weapon used in this crime. 

The category of auto theft has been renamed 
motor vehicle theft in 1974. To more fully present 
this problem, law enforcement has been asked to 
provide the type of vehicle stolen in three cate- 
gories: autos, trucks and buses, and other vehicles. 

Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting 

Offenses in Uniform Crime Reporting are di- 
vided into two groupings designated as Part I and 
Part II offenses. Crime Index offenses are included 
among the Part I offenses. Offense and arrest 
information is reported for the Part I offenses on a 
monthly basis whereas only arrest information is 
reported for Part II offenses. 

The Part I offenses are as follows : 

1. Criminal homicide. — (a) Murder and non- 
negUgent manslaughter; All willful felonious 
homicides as distinguished from deaths caused 
by negUgence. Excludes attempts to kill, assaults 
to kill, suicides, accidental deaths, or justifiable 
homicides. Justifiable homicides are limited to: 
(1) The killing of a person by a law CDforcement 
officer in line of duty; and (2) The killing of a 
person in the act of committing a felony by a pri-

THE INDEX OF CRIME, 1973 



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 
metropohtan 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 classifi- 
cations used in the Index are: murder and non- 
negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, 
aggravated assault, burglary-breaking or entering, 
larceny-theft, 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 mean- 
ingful 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 popula- 
tion. This factor is not accounted for in crime 
rates since no reliable 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 inliabitants with 
cities of the same size isolated from suburban 
areas. The effects of being a part of the metro- 
politan fringe can be readily discerned by a review 
of these tables.

' Violent crime is offenses of murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault; property crime is offenses of burglary , larceny-theft 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 re present 
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. 
Law enforcement's 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 
oflfense 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 gioup 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 categories other than those in the Crime 
Index and in presenting crimes known to law 
enforcement through arrests. 

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

It is important to remember in studying 
averages that usually about half the units used 
must be above and about half below. National 
averages can provide the law enforcement ad- 
ministrator with valuable guidance in analyzing 
the local crime count, as well as the performance 
of his force in combating crime. The analj'sis, 
however, does not end with such a comparison, 
for it is only through an appraisal of local condi- 
tions that a clear picture of the community crime 
problem or the effectiveness of the law enforce- 
ment 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 
by agencies representing 74 percent of the United 
States population. In using these arrest figures, 
it is important to remember that the same person 
may be arrested several times during one year for 
the same type or for different offenses. Each arrest 
is counted. Further, the arrest of one person may 
solve several crimes and in other instances two or 



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

Arrests are primarily a measure of police activity 
as it relates to crime. Although police arrest 
practices vary, particularly with respect to 
juveniles, contributors to this Program are instruc- 
ted to count one arrest each tune 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 circum- 
stances 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 law en- 
forcement 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 
police strength. Adequate law enforcement re- 
quirements for a specific place can onl}- be de- 
termined following careful studj^ and analysis of 
the local situation together with a thorough 
evaluation of the numerous factors which affect 
police needs. 

Two tables containing employee rates are set 
forth. In the first, total employees including 
ci\alian 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 52, which include cixdlians, 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 withm the rate ranges 
shown. By arraying rates in this manner, extremes 
are eliminated. 

In Table 53, where rates are published for 
police officers, complete rate ranges are provided 
as supplemental data for those who may be 
interested in using these figures to make limited 
comparisons. 

Statistical data indicating the percent distribu- 
tion of police employees by sex, including civilian 
personnel, are included in Table 54. 

Three tables report figures relating to patrol 
acti\nty hy population groups and shift 
assignments. 



Personnel strength for reporting state police and 
state highway patrol organizations is recorded in 
one table. This table is designed to show, bj^ 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 
onljr 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 civilian personnel 
among the various states can be accounted for in 
part by the differences in responsibilities assigned 
to the departments. It is pointed out, for instance, 
that state police generallj^ are responsible not 
only for traffic patrol, but also conduct a major 
portion of the criminal investigative work in the 
unincorporated areas of the states. On the other 
hand, the activities of the state highway patrol 
organizations for the most part are limited to 
traffic and highway patrol, which includes han- 
dling all types of crime which come to their 
attention during the performance of their patrol 
functions. Many of these state highway patrol 
groups also are authorized to and do participate 
in criminal investigative work when requested to 
do so by city departments or sheriffs' offices. 

The annual collection of law enforcement em- 
ployee 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 
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.
