FOREWORD 

This publication marks another year in law enforcement's long tradition of 
apprising the Nation of the nature and extent of crime. Using as a basis an index 
of seven crimes likely to be reported, the law enforcement community has 
endeavored to create a set of statistics valuable to those with an interest in the 
crime problem. 

The FBI, through the Attorney General, was designated to administer 
the Uniform Crime Reporting Program in 1930 by the United States Congress. 
During the many intervening years, we have taken great pains to fulfill our 
responsibility by annually providing a comprehensive reference work which 
reliably reflects the Nation's crime experience. Accomplishing this charge has 
been made possible by the cooperation of law enforcement agencies across the 
country. Their unflagging desire to rid the Nation of crime is evidenced by their 
continuing active participation in this effort. Since we in the policing profession 
know that without the constant support of the American public our goal is 
unattainable, we provide the information contained in this edition to keep our 
constituency informed and to expand our own knowledge so that we might 
develop more effective means of deterring crime and most efficiently perform 
our duties. 

Crime in the United States — 1977 reflects the work efforts of many state- 
level Uniform Crime Reporting Programs. In recent years, the law enforce- 
ment conmiunity recognized the need to address crime problems germane to 
the respective states, and in response, the Law Enforcement Assistance Ad- 
ministration lent initial financial aid and the FBI jirovided technical support to 
interested states. Presently, there are 4.3 state-level agencies serving law 
enforcement by way of training, recordkeeping assistance, and publication 
of state-related crime data. The existence of these services has benefited law 
enforcement and strengthened the utility of this document.

Crime Factors 

The presence of crime in our Nation's communities is a serious concern not 
only of the law enforcement profession, but of society at large. Historically, the 
causes and origins of crime have been the subjects of investigation by many 
disciplines. However, no definitive conclusions have yet been reached. Instead, 
a number of factors affecting the volume and type of crime that occurs from 
place to place have been delineated. Some of these are as follows: 

Density and size of community population, and of its surrounding 
area. 

Variations in composition of the population, particularly age structure. 

Stability of population with respect to transient factors. 

Economic conditions, including job availability. 

Cultural conditions, such as educational, recreational, and religious 
characteristics. 

Climate. 

Effective strength of law enforcement agencies. 

Administrative and investigative emphases of law enforcement. 

Policies of other components of the criminal justice system (i.e., 
prosecutorial, judicial, correctional, and probational) . 

Attitudes of citizenry toward crime. 

Crime reporting practices of citizenry. 
The Uniform Crime Reports give a nationwide view of crime based on 
police statistics contributed by state and local law enforcement agencies. Popu- 
lation size is the only correlate of crime utilized in this publication. While the 
other factors listed above are of equal concern, no attempt is made to relate 
them to data presented. The reader is, therefore, cautioned against comparing 
statistical data of individual communities solely on the basis of their population 
size.

SUMMARY OF THE UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 



The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program 
provides a periodic, nationwide assessment of 
crime based on the cooperative submission of data 
by nearly 15,000 law enforcement agencies 
throughout the country. Its fundamental objective 
is to produce a reliable set of criminal statistics 
for use in law enforcement administration, opera- 
tion, and management. Additionally, the data are 
intended for the use and information of other 
criminal justice professionals, legislators, and 
scholars who have an interest in the crime problem. 
The information also provides the public with an 
important indicator of the level of criminality in 
our society. ». 

Historical Background 

This voluntary national Program of collecting 
crime counts was initiated in 1930 by the Com- 
mittee on Uniform Crime Records of the Inter- 
national Association of Chiefs of Police (lACP). 
During that same year, the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation (FBI) was authorized by the Con- 
gress of the United States to serve as the national 
clearinghouse for crime-related statistical infor- 
mation. Since that time, data have been obtained 
from law enforcement agencies throughout the 
Nation based on unifoim classifications and pro- 
cedures of reporting. 

In an effort to provide as complete a picture of 
crime in the United States as possible, the Com- 
mittee on Uniform Crime Records of the lACP 
chose to obtain data on offenses that became 
kno^\•n to police, since greater numbers of these 
data were available than in any other category of 
reportable crime information. A meaningful over- 
view of crime was available through examination of 
seven offenses which were selected because of their 
seriousness, frequency of occurrence, and likeli- 
hood of being reported to police. These offenses, 
known as the Crime Index offenses, are murder 
and nonnegligenl manslaughter, forcible rape, 
robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny- 
theft, and motor vehicle theft. 



To provide nationwide uniformity in the 
reporting of data, standardized definitions were 
adopted for all offenses. This standardization 
was necessary to overcome the variations in 
definitions of criminal offenses throughout the 
country. Reporting agencies are required to submit 
their data in accordance with the UCR definitions 
of offenses as set forth in Appendix II of this 
publication. Because of the variance in punish- 
ment for the same oft'enses in difl'erent state codes, 
there is no possibility in a program such as this to 
distinguish between felony or misdemeanor crimes. 

The Committee on Uniform Crime Records, 
lACP, continues to serve in an advisory capacity 
to the FBI concerning the operation of this Pro- 
gram. In this connection, the lACP plays an active 
and effective part in quality control through sur- 
veys of police records and crime reporting systems. 
Additionally, the Program employs professional 
statisticians whose responsibilities include re- 
search, development, and implementation of 
logical procedures for Program enhancement. 

The National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) in 
June 1966 established a Committee on Uniform 
Crime Reportmg to serve in an advisory capacity 
to the NSA membership and the national UCR 
Program. This Committee actively encourages 
sheriffs throughout the country to fully participate 
in the UCR Program. 

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

Methods of Data Collection 

Contributing agencies to the UCR Program are 
responsible for compiling and submitting their 
crime data in one of two means, either directly 
to the FBI or through their state Programs. 
Those which submit directlj^ to the FBI are pro- 



vided, on an individual basis, continuing guidance 
and support from the national Program. 

Presently, 43 states have operational UCR 
Programs and others are in various stages of 
developing such data collection efforts. These 
state UCR Programs provide the advantages of 
increased coverage of law enforcement agencies 
due to state mandatory reporting requirements; 
the provision of more direct and frequent service 
to law enforcement agencies in assuring complete- 
ness and quality of information provided by them; 
and through coordination by the state data col- 
lection agency, more readily available information 
for use at the state level. Also, the collection 
and reporting machinery for the national Program 
is substantially streamlined. 

With the development of a state UCR Program, 
the FBI ceases collection of data directly from 
individual law enforcement agencies within the 
state. Instead, completed information from these 
agencies is forwarded to the national Program 
through the state data collection agency. 

The conditions under which these systems are 
developed provide consistency and comparability 
in the data submitted to the national Program. 
They also permit regular and timely reporting of 
the national crime data. These conditions are: 
(1) The state Program must conform to the 
national Uniform Crime Reports standards, defi- 
nitions, and information required. These require- 
ments, of course, do not prohibit the state from 
collecting other statistical data beyond the na- 
tional 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 national Uniform Crime 
Reports. (4) The state agency must have adequate 
field staff assigned to conduct audits and to assist 
contributing agencies in record practices and crime 
reporting procedures. (5) The state agency must 
funiish to the FBI all of the detailed data regularly 
collected by the P'BI in the form of duplicate 
returns, computer printouts, and/or magnetic 
tapes. (6) The state must have the proven capabil- 
ity (tested over a period of time) to supply all the 
statistical data required in time to meet national 
Uniform Crime Reports' j)ublication deadlines. 

To fulfill its responsibilities in connection with 
(he UCR Program efforts, the FBI continues its 
internal procedures of editing and reviewing in- 
dividual agency reports for both completeness and 



quality; has direct contact with individual con- 
tributors within the state when necessary in con- 
nection with crime reporting matters, coordinating 
such contact with the state agency; and upon 
request, conducts training programs within the 
state with respect to police records and crime 
reporting procedures. These training sessions are 
coordinated with the state agency. Should circum- 
stances develop whereby the state agency does 
not comply with the aforementioned requirements, 
the national Program may reinstitute a direct 
collection of Uniform Crime Reports from law 
enforcement agencies within the state. 

Reporting Procedures 

On a monthly basis, law enforcement agencies 
(police, sheriffs, and state police) report the num- 
ber of offenses that become known to them in the 
following crime categories: murder and normegli- 
gent manslaughter, manslaughter by negligence, 
forcible rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny- 
theft, and motor vehicle theft. A count of these 
crimes, which are known as Part I offenses, is 
taken from records of all complaints of crime re- 
ceived by la^ enforcement agencies from victims 
or other sources and/or from officers who dis- 
covered the infractions. 

Whenever complaints of crime are determined 
through investigation to be unfounded or false, 
they are eliminated from the actual count. The 
number of "actual offenses known" in Part I is 
reported to the FBI whether or not anyone is 
arrested for the crime, the stolen property is re- 
covered, or prosecution is undertaken. Each month 
law enforcement agencies report the total number 
of these crimes cleared. Crimes are "cleared" in 
one of two ways: (1) at least one person is arrested, 
charged, and turned over to the court for prose- 
cution; or (2) by exceptional means when some 
element beyond police control precludes the physi- 
cal arrest of an offender. The number of clearances 
which involved only the arrest of offenders under 
the age of 18, the value of property stolen and 
recovered in connection with Part I offenses, and 
detailed information pertaining to criminal homi- 
cide are also reported. 

Arrest data are reported monthly for both 
Part I and Part II offenses, by crime category, 
and include the age, sex, and race of persons 
arrested. Part II offenses, while excluding traffic 
violations, include all other crimes except those 
classified as Part I. 



The Tuiinbor of law eiiforceinont ofliccrs as- 
;aulteil or killed by ty|)e of duty assitrnincnt, tyj)e 
jf weapon used, the circumstances of the assault, 
md whether the victim ofiicer sustained injury are 
•ollectetl monthly. Other law enforcement em- 
ployee data, sjiecifically the number of full-time 
;worn officers and other personnel, are reported 
IS of October 151 of each calendar year. 

■difing Procedures 

Data reliability is a matter of hi<:;h priority to 
he UCR Program. Each incoming report is ex- 
imined not only for arithmetical accuracy but 
dso, as a possible indication of error, for deviations 
rom the experiences of similar agencies. 

Variations in reported crime levels and ratios as 
istablished by previous reports may indicate pos- 
ible incompleteness in reporting or changes in 
eporting procedures. Necessary arithmetical ad- 
ustments or unusual variations are brought to 
he attention of the submitting agency through 
orrespondence. Correspondence with individ\ial 
ontributors and state UCR Programs is the 
)riiicipal mode of quality control. Not only are 
ndividual reports studied, but also, periodic 
rends for individual reporting units are prepared 
ind evaluated. As a standard procedure, crime 
evels for each reporting agency are analyzed five 
imes a year by the FBI. Any significant increase 
If decrease is made the subject of a special inquiry 
o the contributing agency. The communications 
ontaining these inquiries specifically direct atten- 
ion to possible changes in records or reporting 
irocedures. When it is found that crime reporting 
procedures are in part responsible for the dif- 
erence in the level of crime, the figures for specific 
Time categories, or if necessaiy, totals are e.x- 
;luded from the trend tabulations. 

Variations from reporting standards which 
annot be resolved may be brought to the atten- 
ion of the Committee on Uniform Crime Records 
if the lACP. In turn, the Committee may desig- 
late a representative to make a personal visit 
ind cooperatively assist the agency in authenticat- 
ng records and reporting methods. 

Regardless of the extent of the statistical editing 
>rocesses used by the FBI, the accuracy of the 
lata asscnd)lcd under this Program depends pri- 
narily on the adherence of each contributor to the 
stablished standards of reporting. For this reason, 
he FBI is not in a position to vouch for the valid- 
ly of individual agency reports. 



Although the final responsibility for crime 
leports rests with individual law enforcement 
agencies, the FBI endeavors to maintain data 
validity not only through its editing practices, 
but also, by providing training seminars and in- 
structional materials in UCR procedures. All 
contributing agencies are supplied with the Uni- 
form Clime Bejyorting Handbook which outlines, 
in detail, procedures for classifying and scoring 
offenses. The Handbook illustrates and discusses 
the monthly and annual reporting forms, as well 
as the tally forms which facilitate the periodic 
tabulation of data. 

In addition, the FBI conducts UCR seminars 
and workshops throughout the country for law 
enforcement personnel. FBI and state UCR Pro- 
gram personnel are utilized to enlist the coopera- 
tion of new contributors and to explain the pur- 
pose of the Program and methods of assembling 
information for reporting. When reporting prob- 
lems exist in the individual agencies and remedial 
efforts are unsuccessful, FBI Headquarters' person- 
nel may visit the contributor to aid in resolving the 
problems. 

Since a good record system is essential for 
accurate crime reporting, the FBI makes avail- 
able, upon request by any law enforcement 
agency, the Manual of Police Records, which can 
serve as a guide in the establishment of a sound 
police record system. 

Also, to enhance communication among Pro- 
gram participants, the publication, the UCR 
"Newsletter," is utilized to explain revisions in 
the Program, as well as present information and 
instructional material. 

Reporting Area 

The presentation of crime data by reporting 
areas is one method of analyzing the statistics 
submitted to the FBI. Nationwide, the United 
States is divisible by regions and geographic divi- 
sions. Further breakdowns by city size rely on 
population figures and proximity to metropolitan 
areas. 

The UCR Program follows as closely as prac- 
tical the definitions used by the Office of Manage- 
ment and Budget and the Bureau of the Census 
for geographical entities. A Standard Metroi)olitan 
Statistical Area (SMSA), generally, is made up of 
a core city or cities with a combined population of 
50,000 or more inhabitants and the surrounding 
county or counties which share certain metro- 



politan characteristics. In New England, "town" 
instead of "county" is used to describe SMSAs. 
These towns do not coincide generally with estab- 
lished reporting units; therefore, metropolitan 
state economic areas in New England are used in 
these areas' tabulations since they encompass an 
entire county or counties. SMSAs, as used in this 
publication, made up approximately 73 percent of 
the total United States' population in 1977. 

"Other cities" are those outside SMSAs. Most 
of these places are incorporated and comprised 12 
percent of the 1977 population. For crime re- 
porting purposes, rural areas are made up of the 
unincorporated portions of counties outside 
urban places and SMSAs and represented 15 per- 
cent of the national population. As a general rule, 
sheriffs, county police, and many state police 
report on crimes committed within the limits of 
the counties but outside cities, while local police 
report on crimes committed within the city limits 
(urban places). 

Additionally, certain tables within this publica- 
tion present statistics relative to "suburban" 
areas. A suburban area consists of cities with 
populations less than 50,000 together with coun- 
ties which are within an SMSA. In this context, 
the major core city is, of course, excluded. The 
concept of suburban area is especially important 
in a study of this nature because of the particular 
crime conditions which exist in these communities 
surrounding the major core cities. 

As of 1977, the law enforcement agencies active 
in the UCR Program represented 99 percent of 
the United States' population living in the 
SMSAs, 96 percent of the population in other 
cities, and 92 percent of the rural population. 
When considering the national population, as 
estimated by the Bureau of the Census, the com- 
bined coverage accounted for 98 percent of the 
total. 

Regionally, the United States is divided into 
four areas: the Northeastern States, composed of 
the New England and Middle Atlantic Divisions; 
the North Central States, which include the East 
North Central and West North Central Divisions; 
the Southern States, made up of the South Atlan- 
tic, East South Central, and West South Central 
Divisions; and the Western States, comprised of 
the Mountain and Pacific Divisions. 

The Crime Totals 

Communities which do not submit crime reports 
to the UCR Program represent a relatively small 



percent of the total population. In each of the 
tabular presentations in this publication, the 
extent of population coverage represented by the 
data included is shoAvn. The FBI conducts an 
ongoing program to further increase the reporting 
areas. 

Population Data 

In computing crime rates by state, Standard 
Metropolitan Statistical Area, geographic division 
and region, and the Nation, population estimates 
released by the Bureau of the Census on July 1, 
1977, were used. Population estimates for individ- 
ual cities and counties were prepared using special 
census reports, state sources and estimates, com- 
mercial sources, and interpolation where no other 
estimate was available. The estimated United 
States' population increase in 1977 was 1 percent 
over 1976. 

Offense Estimation 

It is possible that a law enforcement agency 
would submit fewer than the solicited 12 months | 
of offense reports. Tables one through five of this 
publication represent total crime in the United 
States; therefore, offense counts here are esti- 
mated for agencies which fail to submit complete i 
reports for the year. Offense estimation occurs 
within each of three areas: Standard Metropolitan 
Statistical Areas, other cities, and rural areas. It 
is assumed that the unreported portion of these 
areas has the same proportionate crime experience 
as that for which reports were received. Estimates 
for unreported areas are based on the reported 
crime experience of similar areas within a state. 

Crime Trends 

A further means of studying crime throughout 
the Nation is to establish trends. Percent change 
tabulations presented in this publication are 
homogeneous to the extent that only figures for 
reporting units which have provided comparable 
data for the periods under consideration are in- 
cluded. National, geographic, and area trends are 
computed for 2 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. 

The current year's reporting is the most com- 
plete in terms of volume. Therefore, valid 2-year 
trends in Uniform Crime Reports may be used to 
reasonably establish long-term trends. In addi- 



tion, these year-to-year trends arc applied as 
the basis for reestimating the vohimc of crime and 
in reconstructing crime trends for prior years. 

The most reliable reports available for the 
current year are found in the crime rate tables 
by state and Standard Metropolitan Statistical 
Area. Care should be exercised in any direct 
comparisons with prior issues. Changes in the 
crime level may have been due in part to im- 
proved reporting or records procedures, redefini- 
tion of reporting areas, or other variables. 

Recent Developments 

During tlie third national Conference of State 
Uniform Crime Reporting Programs, held in 1977, 
the Uniform Crime Records Committee of the 
lACP and the Committee of Uniform Crime 
Reporting of the NSA, in a joint meeting, adopted 
a resolution to discontinue the collection of dis- 
position data on persons charged. Therefore, 
collection of this information was suspended 
following the 1977 submission, and disposition 
data like that contained in this publication will 
not appear in subsequent editions. 

The membership of the lACP and NSA Com- 
mittees concluded that the existing collection of 



disposition data was inadequate and recommended 
a study be instituted to develop a more complete 
and efficient manner for the solicitation of dispo- 
sition information. Their resolution, however, did 
not preclude the continued collection of these data 
by any agency wishing to do so. Some individual 
state UCR Programs have opted to continue this 
collection on a state-wide basis. 

Due to new Federal standards concerning 
statistics collected on race and ethnicity, plans 
are underway for the revision of the Age, Sex and 
Race of Persons Arrested form effective January 1, 
1980. To conform with the newly established 
categories, the proposed modifications to the form 
include: the restructuring of the racial groups for 
which data are solicited to encompass Whites, 
Blacks, American Indians or Alaskan Natives, 
and Asian or Pacific Islanders; and the addition of 
a collection of ethnic origin to indicate Hispanic 
or not Hispanic. 

These changes are currently in the planning 
stages, and of course, the comments of interested 
parties will be obtained prior to their final imple- 
mentation.

convey the annual reported crime experience hy sliowing tlie relative frequency of occurrence of the Index Offenses. 
This mode of display should not be taken to imply a regularity in the commission of the Part I Offenses; rather, it 
represents the annual ratio of crime to fixed time intervals. 



MURDER AND NONNEGLIGENT MANSLAUGHTER 



-DEFINITION- 



Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, as defined in the Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program, is the willful (nonnegligent) killing of one 
human being by another. 

The classification of this offense, as in all other Crime Index offenses, 
is based solely on police investigation as opposed to the determination 
of a court, medical examiner, coroner, jury, or other judicial body. 
Not included in the count for this offense classification are deaths 
caused by negligence, suicide, or accident; justifiable homicides, which 
are the killings of felons by peace officers in the line of duty, or by 
private citizens; or attempts to murder or assaults to murder, which 
are scored as aggravated assaults.

Volume 

In 1977, there were an estimated 19,120 murders 
in the United States, which accounted for approxi- 
mately 2 percent of the total violent crimes. 

A geographic breakdown of murder by region 
revealed that 41 percent of the murders occurred 
in the Southern States; 22 percent in the North 
Central States; 19 percent in the Western States; 
and 18 percent in the Northeastern States. 

During 1977, December had the highest fre- 
quency of murder offenses as compared to any 
other month of the year. 




JAN. FEB. MAR. APR. MAY lUNE HIIY AUfi. SEPT. OCT. NOV. DEC. 



Trend 

Nationally, the number of murders increased 2 
percent from 1976 to 1977. 

Kegionally, the number of murder offenses in 
1977 increased 11 percent in the Western States 
and 1 percent in the Southern States. Decreases of 
2 percent were reported in both the Northeastern 
and North Central States. 

Large core cities of 250,000 or more inhabitants 
had a 1-percent increase in the number of murders 
in 1977, while the suburban and rural areas ex- 
perienced increases of 1 and 2 percent, respectively. 

The following chart reveals a decrease of 3 per- 
cent from 1973 to 1977 in the murder counts. 




Rate 

In 1977, as in 1976, there were an average of 
8.8 murder victims for every 100,000 inhabitants 
in the Nation. 



The number of murder victims in proportion to 
population was highest in the Southern States 
with 11.3 murders per 100,000 inhabitants. 
Although the Southern States' rate showed no 
change over 1976 figures, the Western States' rate 
of 9.3 per 100,000 represented a 9-percent increase 
over the prior year. The North Central States had 
a 1977 murder rate of 7.2, a decrease of 3 percent 
from 1976; and the Northeastern States experi- 
enced a 6.9 murder rate, or a 1-percent decrease 
from the 1976 experience. 

The metropolitan areas reported a murder rate 
of 9.7 victims per 100,000 inhabitants; the rural 
areas a rate of 7.8 per 100,000 inhabitants; and 
cities outside metropolitan areas reported a 
murder rate of 5.0 per 100,000 inhabitants. 

Nature 

Participating law enforcement agencies pro- 
vided supplemental information regarding homi- 
cide which enabled the Uniform Crime Reporting 
Program to conduct a more in-depth analysis of 
this offense. Additional data were collected con- 
cerning the age, sex, and race of the victim and 
offender; the weapon used in the murder; the 
circumstances surrounding the offense; and the 
relationship between the victim and offender. 

The victims of murder in 1977 were male in 
approximately 3 out of 4 instances — a ratio which 
has been similar in recent years. An average of 
53 out of 100 murder victims were white, 45 were 
Negro, and 2 were other races. 

During 1977, 15,176 offenders were identified in 
connection with the murders of 13,531 victims. Of 
these victims, 11,308 were killed in situations in- 
volving a single victim and a single offender; 1,290 
in single victim/multiple offender situations; 771 
in those involving multiple victims and a single 
offender; and 162 in multiple victim/multiple 
offender situations. 

In 1977, firearms again predominated as the 
weapon most often used in the commission of 
murders throughout the Nation. The accom- 
panying chart illustrates a breakdown by type 
of weapon used in murder offenses in the United 
States. In the Southern States, firearms were 
used in 69 percent of the murders; in the North 
Central States, 66 percent; in the Western States, 
56 percent; and in the Northeastern States, 51 
percent. Nationwide, 63 percent of the murders 
were committed through the use of firearms. In 
48 percent of the murders a handgun was the 
weapon used.

The offender could not be identified in 4,502 of the murders. 

Cutting or stabbing instruments were used in 
19 percent of the murders in the Nation. The 
Northeastern States, where 1 of 4 murders was 
committed with a knife or cutting weapon, 
reported the most widespread use of such weapons. 
In 1 of 5 murders in the Western States these 
types of weapons were employed, while the North 
Central and Southern States had the least inci- 
dence of use of such weapons, 1 of every 
6 murders. Nationwide, other weapons such as 
blunt objects, poisons, explosives, arson, drown- 
ing, etc., were used in 13 percent of the murders. 
In the remaining 6 percent, personal weapons such 
as hands, fists, and feet were used. 

A comparative study for the past 5 years showed 



a decrease from 67 percent of all murders through 
use of firearms in 1973, to 63 percent of all murders 
in 1977. A comparative analysis of weapons used 
to commit murder for 1973 through 1977 is shown 
in tabular form. 

The activities resulting in murder varied from 
arguments to felonies. That murder is largely 
a societal problem beyond the control of law 
enforcement is emphasized by the relationship 
of the murder victim to the offender. - 

In 1977, 19 percent of the murder victims were 
related to the offenders, and 40 percent were 
otherwise acquainted. During the year, 7 per- 
cent of the murders resulted from drunken argu- 
ments, 5 percent from arguments over money

In 1977, 75 percent of the murders were solved, as 
compared to 79 percent in 1976. Persons under 18 
years of age were involved in 5 percent of the willful 
killings solved by police in 1977.

was a 5-percent increase in the number of persons 
under 18 years of age arrested for murder. The 
adult arrests for murder offenses decreased 2 per- 
cent during this period. Numerically, the 18 to 22 
year age group had the heaviest involvement dur- 
ing 1977, with 25 percent of the total arrests com- 
ing from within this age group. Negroes made up 
51 percent of the total arrests for murder in 1977, 
whites composed 46 percent, and the remaining 3 
percent were of other races. 



Persons Charged 

Law enforcement agencies' reports disclosed 
that 68 percent of all adults arrested for murder 
in 1977 were prosecuted. Fifty-five percent of the 
adults prosecuted were found guilty as charged, 
14 percent were convicted on some lesser charge, 
and the remaining were released through acquittal 
or dismissal of the charges against them. Of all 
individuals processed for murder, 9 percent were 
juveniles who had their cases referred to juvenile 
court.

—DEFINITION — 



Forcible rape, as defined in the Program, is the carnal knowledge of 
a female forcibly and against her will. Assaults or attempts to commit 
forcible rape by force or threat of force are also included ; however, 
statutory rape (without force) and other sex offenses are not included 
in this category.

Volume 

During 1977, there was an estimated total of 
63,020 forcible rapes. Forcible rape continued, 
as in prior years, to comprise less than 1 percent 
of the Crime Index total and accounted for 6 
percent of the volume of crimes of violence. When 
viewed geographically, the Southern States re- 
corded 33 percent of the total volume; the Western 
States reported 27 percent; the North Central 
States 23 percent; and the Northeastern States 
18 percent of the forcible rapes. 

The following chart indicates that more rapes 
occur in the summer months of the year. 




IAN. FEB. MAR. APR. MAY JUNE lULY AUG. SEPT. OCT. NOV. DEC, 



Trend 

The volume of forcible rape offenses in 1977 
increased 11 percent over 1976 and 23 percent 
over 1973. During 1977, 40 percent of the forcible 
rapes occurred in cities with 250,000 or more 
inhabitants. A 10-percent increase over the pre- 
vious year was seen in both this group and in the 
suburban areas surrounding the large core cities. 
The rural areas registered a 9-percent increase 
over 1976. Geographically, all regions indicated 
upswings in the volume of forcible rape offenses. 
The Western and Southern States reported in- 
creases of 13 percent, followed by the North- 
eastern States with 11 percent, and the North 
Central States with 6 percent. 

Rate 

A crime rate, in its proper perspective, is a 
victim risk rate since it equates the number of 
crimes i)er unit of population. In 1977, 57 out of 
every 100,000 females in this country were re- 
ported rape victims, a 10-percent rate increase 
over 1976. Since 1973, the forcible rai)e rate has 
increased 19 percent. 

The metropolitan areas experienced a risk rate 
of 68 victims j)cr 100,000 females. Cities outside 
metropolitan areas experienced a risk rate of 28 
per 100,000 females and the rural areas followed 
closely with 27 per 100,000 females. Geographi- 
cally, the Western States reported females were 
rape victims at the rate of 84 per 100,000. In the 
South this rate was 57 per 100,000; 48 per 100,000 




in the North Central States; and 44 per 100,000 
in the Northeast. 

Nature 

In 1977, 74 percent of all reported offenses in this 
category were rapes by force. The remainder were 
attempts or assaults to commit forcible rape. Of 
all the Crime Index offenses, forcible rape, a 
violent crime against the person, has been recog- 
nized by law enforcement as one of the most under- 
reported crimes. This phenomenon is due primarily 
to the victims' fear of their assailants and their 
sense of embarrassment over the incident. 

Clearances 

Of the total forcible rapes reported in 1977 to law 
enforcement, 51 percenj. were cleared by arrest or 
exceptional means. The large cities with 250,000 
or more people reported a 51 -percent clearance 
rate; the suburban areas of the country indicated 
a 52-percent clearance rate; and the rural areas 
obtained clearances in 69 percent of the rapes 
which occurred in their area. Of the total clear- 
ances for forcible rape, 10 percent involved solely 
persons under the age of 18. 

Persons Arrested 

Total 1977 arrests for forcible rape increased 4 
percent over 1976 and 10 percent over 1973. 
During the year, 56 percent of the arrests for this 
offense were of males under the age of 25, and 30 
percent of the arrestees were in the 18- to 22-year- 
old age group. Fifty i)ercent of the persons arrested 
for forcible rape in 1977 were white, 47 percent 
Negro, and all other races comprised the re- 
mainder. Arrests of persons under 18 years of age 
decreased 4 percent over 1973. 

Persons Charged 

Of all adults arrested for forcible rape in 1977, 65 
percent were prosecuted for this offense. Acquittals

and/or dismissals resulted in 40 percent of these percent were convicted of lesser offenses. Juvenile 
cases. Forty-seven percent of the adults prosecuted referrals amounted to 23 percent of the persons

Trend 

The 1977 robbery volume decreased 4 percent 
from the previous year. This decline is contrary 
to the 5-percent increase experienced in total rob- 
beries during the period 1973-1977. 

In 1977, large cities with populations over 
250,000 experienced a 7-percent decrease in rob- 
beiy offenses when compared to the 1976 volume. 
On the other hand, the suburban areas reported a 
2-percent increase and the rural areas a 1-percent 
increase in the number of robbery offenses. 

Geographically, the Western States experienced 
a 5-percent increase in robberies between 1976 and 
1977, followed by the Southern States with a 2- 
percent increase. However, the Northeastern 
States and the North Central States reported 
decreases of 10 percent and 7 percent, respectively.

/?afe 

The 1977 rate of 187 robberies per 100,000 
iidiahitants was 4 percent below the 1976 rate. 
Robbery is primarily a large-city crime with 7 out 
of 10, or a rate of 487 robberies per 100,000 
inhabitants, occurring in these cities with popu- 
lations over 100,000. 

There were 244 robberies per 100,000 inhabitants 
in the metropolitan areas during 1977. The cities 
outside metropolitan areas experienced a rate of 
48 robbery offenses per 100,000 people. In the 
rural areas, the robbery rate was 21 per 100,000 
inhabitants. 

Regionally, robbery occurred most frequently 
in the Northeastern States where the rate was 
261 per 100,000 inhabitants. The rate per 100,000 
inhabitants for the Western States was 214; the 
North Central States, 163; and the Southern 
States, 140. 

Haiute 

Supplemental robbery information obtained in 
1977 from law enforcement agencies disclosed 
that nearly half of the robberies were committed 
on the street. Nationally, there were 3,983 bank 
robberies in 1977, with an average loss of $4,858. 

As has been previously stated in past volumes 
of this publication, the full impact of this violent 
crime on the victim cannot be completely measured 
in terras of dollar loss alone. While the object of 
the attack is money or property, many victims 
of this offense suffer serious personal injury. 
During 1977, the average value loss in each 
robbery incident was $377 for a total reported 
loss of $153 million. 

The 1973-1977 trends in robbery by type, as 
illustrated in the following charts, show bank 
robberies have increased 90 percent. During this 
same period, gas or service station holdups 
increased 36 percent; chain store robberies rose 
20 percent; and residential robberies were up 10 
percent. Decreases during this 5-year period were 
seen in two other nonresidential categories, 
holdups of other commercial or business estab- 
lishments, down 12 percent, and street robberies, 
down 2 percent. 

In 1977, 42 percent of all reported robberies 
were committed through use of firearms; 37 per- 
cent by implementation of strong-arm tactics 
(hands, fists, feet, etc.) ; 13 percent by use of

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT 
DEFINITION 



Aggravated assault is an unlawful attack by one person upon another 
for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. This 
type of assault is usually accompanied by the use of a weapon or by 
means likely to produce death or great bodily harm. Attempts are 
included since it is not necessary that an injury result when a gun, 
knife, or other weapon is used which could and probably would result 
in serious personal injury if the crime were successfully completed.

percent of the crimes of violence. Refjionally, the 
Southern States reported 36 percent of the total 
count of these crimes. The Western Stat«s 
followed with 23 percent; the Northeastern States 
with 21 percent; and the North Central States 
with 20 percent. As has been the experience in 
previous years, the highest frequency of aggra- 
vated assault during 1977 occurred in the summer 
months.

Trend 

The volume of aggravated assaults increased 6 
percent between 1976 and 1977, and 24 percent 
since 1973. Cities with over 250,000 inhabitants 
recorded a rise of 2 percent over the last year, 
while the suburban and rural areas reported 7- 
and 1 -percent increases, respectively, during the 
same period. 

An increase was also seen in the volume of 
aggravated assaults in each geographic region. 
The Southern States rose 9 percent; the Western 
States increased 7 percent; the Northeastern 
States showed a 5-percent increase; and the North 
Central States had an increase of 2 percent. 




Rate 

During 1977, there were 242 victims of aggra- 
vated assault per 100,000 inhabitants in the United 



States. Metropolitan areas had an aggravated 
assault rate of 271 per 100,000 inhabitants; cities 
outside metropolitan areas had a victim rate of 
200 per 100,000 inhabitants; and the rate for rural 
areas was 130 per 100,000 inhabitants. Nation- 
wide, the victim rate for aggravated assault in- 
creased 6 percent over 1976 and 20 percent over 
1973. 

Of the four geographic regions, the Western 
States had the highest rate, 310 per 100,000, 
followed by the Southern States with 271; the 
Northeastern States with 220; and the North 
Central States with 179. 

Nature 

In 1977, 23 percent of the serious assaults were 
committed with the use of firearms, while knives 
or other cutting instruments were used in an 
additional 23 percent. Twenty-seven percent 
were committed with blunt objects or other 
dangerous weapons, and the remaining 27 percent 
were committed with personal weapons such as 
hands, fists, and feet. A comparison of aggravated 
assault from 1973 to 1977 revealed that the use of 
firearms as a weapon increased 12 percent; 
assaults with knives or other cutting instruments 
rose 17 percent; assaults where blunt objects or 
other dangerous weapons were used increased 
49 percent; and those aggravated assaults com- 
mitted through use of personal weapons climbed 
21 percent. The table which follows exhibits the 
regional experience of aggravated assault in 1977 
by type of weapon used.

Clearances 

Collectively, law enforcement agencies solved 
an average of 62 jjer 100 cases of aggravated 
assault in 1977. This relatively high solution rate 
was consistent with high clearance rates for other 
crimes against the person. Persons under 18 years 



21 



of age, exclusively, were identified in 10 percent 
of the aggravated assault clearances. 

Persons Arrested 

Arrests for aggravated assault, during the period 
1973-1977, increased 13 percent. Since 1973, 
arrests of persons 18 years of age and over for 
aggravated assault have increased 12 percent, and 
arrests of persons under 18 years of age for this 
offense have increased 16 percent. As a group, 
persons 21 years of age and over accounted for 
69 percent of the 1977 arrests for aggravated 
assault, and those under age 21 accounted for 31 



percent. Arrests of males outnumbered females by 
a 7 to 1 ratio. 

Persons Charged 

Seventy-two out of every 100 adults arrested for 
aggravated assault in 1977 were prosecuted. 
Forty-nine percent of the adults prosecuted for 
aggravated assault were convicted for this offense; 
14 percent were convicted of lesser charges; 
acquittals and dismissals accounted for 36 percent 
of the dispositions for all persons charged with 
this offense ; and 17 percent of all persons processed 
were referred to juvenile courts.

BURGLARY 
-DEFINITION- 



The Uniform Crime Reporting Program defines burglary as the un- 
lawful entiy of a structure to commit a felony or theft. The use of force 
to gain entry- is not required to classify an offense as burglary. Burglary 
in this Program is categorized into three subclassifications : forcible 
entrj', unlawful entry where no force is used, and attempted forcible 
entry.

Volume 

There was an estimated total of 3,052,200 bur- 
glaries during 1977. For the year, large cities over 
250,000 inhabitants recorded 30 percent of the 
total burglary figure. 

Burglary made up 28 percent of the total Crime 
Index offenses and was found to comprise 31 per- 
cent of the total property crimes. Geographically, 
the Southern States experienced 31 percent of all 
reported burglaries; the Western States, 25 per- 
cent; the Northeastern States, 23 percent; and the 
North Central States the remainder. 

Viewed monthly, the highest volume of bur- 
glaries occurred in August of 1977.

In 1977, there were 1,411 burglaries per 100,000 
inhabitants, showing a decrease of 2 percent when 
compared with the previous year. During the 
period of 1973-1977, this rate increased 15 per- 



cent. The metropolitan areas reported a rate of 
1,609 burglaries per 100,000 people. Cities out- 
side metropolitan areas, called "Other Cities" in 
this publication, had a rate of 997 burglaries per 
100,000, and the rural areas recorded a lower rate 
of 767 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants. 

The Western States recorded the highest bur- 
glary rate in 1977 with 1,933 offenses per 100,000 
inhabitants, followed by the Northeastern States 
with a rate of 1,404; the Southern States 1,336; 
and the North Central States 1,154. 

Haiwe 

Seventy-three percent of the burglaries in 1977 
involved forcible entry, 19 percent were unlawful 
entries (without force) , and 8 percent were forcible 
entry attempts. 

Residential offenses accounted for 65 percent 
of the total burglaries in 1977, and nonresidential 
burglaries made up the remaining 35 percent. 
While residential daytime occurrences declined 2 
percent in 1977 from 1976, nonresidential bur- 
glaries for the same time period rose 3 percent. 
Nighttime burglaries declined in both categories 
during 1977, with residential offenses decreasing 
3 percent and nonresidential down 16 percent. 
During the period 1973-1977, daytime residential 
burglaries increased 22 percent; daytime nonresi- 
dential burglaries rose 29 percent; and nighttime 
residential burglaries were up 15 percent. The 
remaining category, nonresidential nighttime bur- 
glaries, showed the only decrease, 3 percent. 

Economically, burglary represents a substantial 
financial loss. In 1977, burglary victims suffered 
losses totaling $1.4 billion. During this same year, 
residential losses amounted to $977 million, as 
compared to $955 million in 1976. Nonresidential 
losses cost victims $473 million in 1977 and $432 
million in 1976. In 1977, the average dollar loss 
per burglary was $475. 

QleaTanzei 

In 1977, law enforcement was successful in 
clearing 16 percent of the total burglary offenses. 
Adults were involved in 67 percent of all cases 
cleared while only young persons under 18 years 
of age were involved in 33 percent. 

Law enforcement agencies in rural areas cleared 
19 percent of the burglaries occurring within 
their jurisdictions in 1977, while those in the 
suburban areas recorded a clearance rate of 16 
percent. Agencies in cities with over 250,000 
inhabitants obtained clearances in 15 percent 
of these crimes.

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. Total arrests for burglary in 1977 de- 
creased by 2 percent from 1976. Arrests of persons 
under the age of 18 declined 1 percent, while 
arrests of persons aged 18 years and over decreased 
3 percent. The cities and the suburban and rural 
areas each reported a decrease of 2 percent in 
the number of persons arrested. 

In analyzing the 1973-1977 period, a 15-percent 
increase in burglary arrests was seen. Arrests of 
individuals under the age of 18 increased 14 per- 
cent, while the arrests of adult burglary offenders 
increased 17 percent. 



Nationally, persons under 25 years of age ac- 
counted for 84 percent of all arrests for burglary 
in 1977, and 51 percent of all arrested for this 
crime were under the age of 18. An average of 6 
of each 100 persons arrested for this crime during 
1977 were female. Of the total burglary arrests, 
whites accounted for 69 percent and Negroes for 
29 percent. 

Persons Charged 

In 1977, 73 percent of the adults arrested for 
burglary were prosecuted. Of the adults prose- 
cuted, 62 percent were found guilty as charged. 
Thirteen percent of those charged with burglary 
were convicted of a lesser offense, and the re- 
mainder were freed through acquittal or dismissal 
of the charges. Juveniles referred to a juvenile 
court jurisdiction accounted for 57 percent of the 
persons reported as being processed for burglary 
in 1977.

LARCENY-THEFT 
— DEFINITION — 



Larceny-theft is the unlawful taking, carrying, leading, or riding 
away of property from the possession or constructive possession of an- 
other. It includes crimes such as shoplifting, pocket-picking, purse- 
snatching, thefts from motor vehicles, thefts of motor vehicle parts 
and accessories, bicycle thefts, etc., in which no use of force, violence, 
or fraud occurs. In the Uniform Crime Reporting Program, this crime 
category does not include embezzlement, "con" games, forgery, and 
worthless checks. Motor vehicle theft is excluded from this category 
for crime reporting purposes inasmuch as it is a separate Crime Index 
offense.

Volume 

In 1977, there was an estimated total of 
5,905,700 offenses of larceny-theft. This high- 
volume offense made up 54 percent of the Crime 
Index total. When viewed monthly, the volume of 
larceny-theft was highest during August of 1977. 

Geographically, the volume of larceny-theft 
was highest in the Southern and North Central 
States, which reported 30 and 27 percent, respec- 
tively, followed by the Western States with 23 
percent, and the Northeastern States with the 
remainder. 







Trend 

Larceny-theft decreased 6 percent in 1977 when 
compared to the previous year. The large cities 
with over 250,000 inhabitants reported a decrease 
of 8 percent in volume. The suburban and rural 
areas decreased 6 and 4 percent, respectively. 

Geographically, all regions reported declines in 
larceny-thefts. The North Central States reported 
a decrease of 8 percent; the Southern States, 6 
percent; the Northeastern States, 5 percent; and 
the Western States, 4 percent. 

Nationwide, larceny-thefts have increased 36 
percent since 1973. 




Rate 

During 1977, there were 2,730 larceny-thefts 
per 100,000 inhabitants, a decrease of 7 percent 
from the 1976 rate. The rate has increased 32 
percent since 1973. The 1977 larceny-theft rate in 

28 



the metropolitan areas was 3,093 per 100,000 
inhabitants; 2,718 per 100,000 inhabitants in cities 
outside metropolitan areas; and 954 in the rural 
areas. 

Viewed geographically, the Western States 
reported the highest 1977 larceny-theft rate with 
3,521 offenses per 100,000 inhabitants, a 6-percent 
decrease from 1976. The North Central States had 
a rate of 2,708, down 8 percent; the Southern 
States 2,525, down 7 percent; and the North- 
eastern States, with a rate of 2,417, reported a 
decrease of 5 percent. 

Nature m 

The average value of property stolen in each- 
larceny-theft in 1977 was $192, up from $184 in 
1976. When the average value was applied to tlie 
estimated number of larceny-thefts, the loss to 
victims nationally was $1.1 billion. Although a 
portion of the goods stolen is recovered and re- 
turned to victims, the relatively low percentage 
(20 percent) of larceny-theft clearances and the 
lack of o^^•ner identification on such property 
indicate that 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 1977, the average value of goods and property 
reported stolen by pickpockets was $124, by 
purse-snatchers $98 and by shoplifters $42. Addi- 
tionally, miscellaneous thefts from buildings and 
thefts from motor vehicles averaged $293 and 
$231, respectively. 

As in prior years, a large portion of these . 
offenses, 37 percent, was comprised of thefts^ 
of motor vehicle parts and accessories and other 
thefts from motor vehicles. Other major types of 
thefts which contributed to the large number of 
these crimes were those from buildings, with 16 
percent, and stolen bicycles and shoplifting, with; 
11 percent each. The remainder was distributed' 
among pocket-picking, purse-snatching, shoplift- 
ing, thefts from coin-operated machines, and other 
miscellaneous types of larceny-thefts. The accom- 
panying table presents the distribution of larceny- 
theft by type and geographic region.

Clearances 

In 1977, 20 percent of all larceny-thefts brought 
to police attention were solved. Involvement of 
the j'Oiing-age group was demonstrated by the 
fact that 35 percent of these crimes cleared in the 
suburban areas were solved by arrests of persons 
under. IS years of age. Clearances for larceny-theft 
by arrests of persons under 18 were 33 percent 
and 21 percent in the Nation's cities and rural 
areas, respectively. 

Persons Arrested 

The larceny-theft category, comprising 54 per- 
cent of Crime Index offenses, recorded the highest 



percentage (51 percent) of total arrests for Crime 
Index offenses in 1977. However, larceny-theft 
arrests decreased 2 percent, 1977 over 1976. 
Forty-three percent of these arrests were of per- 
sons under 18 years of age, and 60 percent were 
under 21. Females accounted for 32 percent of all 
arrests for larceny-theft and were arrested more 
often for this offense than any other in 1977. 

Arrests of females for larceny-theft violations 
increased less than 1 percent in 1977, while 
arrests of males decreased 3 percent from the 
previous year. Arrests of whites outnumbered 
Negroes by more than 2 to 1 , with all other races 
comprising only about 2 percent of the arrests for 
larceny-theft. There was a 30-percent increase in 
the total volume of larceny-theft arrests during 
1973-1977. Adult arrests rose 41 percent during 
this 5-year period, while those of persons under 18 
years of age were up 17 percent. 

Persons Charged 

In 1977, 86 percent of the adults arrested for 
larceny-theft were prosecuted. Of those prose- 
cuted, 74 percent were found guilty of the original 
charge, 5 percent were found guilty of a lesser 
charge, and 20 percent had their cases dismissed 
or were acquitted. Thirty-eight percent of per- 
sons processed in 1977 for larceny-theft were 
referred to juvenile court.

thefts per 100,000 inhabitants occurred in cities 
with i)opulations over one million. People in these 
cities were deprived of their motor vehicles more 
often than those in any other population group. 

Nationally, the motor vehicle theft rate in the 
metropolitan areas was 553 per 100,000 inhabi- 
tants. The cities outside metropolitan areas had a 
motor vehicle theft rate of 215, and the rural areas 
had the lowest rate, 118. 

Regionally, the Northeastern States had the 
highest motor vehicle theft rate, 626 per 100,000 
inhabitants, a decrease of 3 percent from 1976. 
The Western States followed with 545, an in- 
crease of 2 percent; and the North Central States 
experienced a less than l-jiercent decrease from the 
prior year, or 401 thefts per 100,000 inhabitants. 
The Southern States' rate of 306 per 100,000 
inhabitants represented a 5-percent increase. 

Nationwide, in 1977, an estimated average of 1 
of every 143 registered motor vehicles was stolen. 
Regionally, this rate was the highest in the North- 
eastern States where 11 motor vehicles per 1,000 
registered vehicles were stolen. In the other three 
regions the figures were 8 in the Western States, 
6 in the North Central States, and 5 in the 
Southern States. 

Nature 

Motor vehicle theft rates again clearly indicated 
that this crime was primarily a large-city problem 
since the highest rates appeared in the most heavily 
populated municipalities of the Nation. In 1977, 
the average value of stolen motor vehicles was 
$1,992 at the time of theft. 

Of all motor vehicle thefts reported during 1977, 
80 percent were automobiles, 9 percent were trucks 
or buses, and 10 percent were other types of motor 
vehicles.

Clearances 

Law enforcement agencies were successful in 
solving 15 percent of the motor vehicle thefts 
by arrest of the offender. 

Nationally, in cities over 250,000 inhabitants 
11 percent of motor vehicle thefts were cleared 
during 1977. Throughout the Nation, motor 
vehicle theft clearance percentages ranged from 
25 percent in the South Atlantic States to 8 per- 
cent in the New England States. 

In all geographic divisions and population 
groups, a high proportion of the clearances was 
through the arrest of persons under 18 years of 
age. In the largest cities, 26 percent of the motor 
vehicle thefts cleared were by arrests in this age 
group, while juveniles accounted for 32 percent 
of the solutions in the suburbs and 23 percent in 
the rural areas. 

Persons Arrested 

As in prior years, persons arrested for motor 
vehicle theft came primarily from the youth seg- 
ment of the population. In 1977, 53 percent of 
all persons arrested for this crime were under 18 
years of age. When persons under 21 were included 



in the computations, the proportion of arrests 
rose to 71 percent. 

The national trend in motor vehicle theft arrests 
disclosed an increase of 3 percent in 1977 when 
compared to 1976. Adult arrests increased 1 
percent, while arrests of persons under 18 in- 
creased 5 percent. During the period 1973-1977, 
motor vehicle theft arrests decreased 5 percent. 

White persons made up 71 percent of the arrests 
for motor vehicle theft, Negroes 26 percent, and 
all other races accounted for the remainder. 

Persons Charged 

Of all persons known to have been formally 
processed for motor vehicle theft in 1977, 64 
percent were referred to juvenile court jurisdic- 
tions. No other Crime Index offense resulted ini 
such a high percentage of juvenile court referrals. 
When the remaining adult offenders were con- 
sidered as a group, 56 percent of those prosecuted 
on charges of motor vehicle theft were founc 
guilty as charged, 32 percent were either acquitteci 
or their cases were dismissed, and 12 percent werw 
convicted of lesser offenses.

timz Index Total 

During 1977, an estimated 10,935,800 Crime 
idex offenses, down 3 percent from 1976, were 
iported to law enforcement agencies. Similarly, 
le property crimes as a group showed a decline of 

percent. Among the property crimes, larceny- 
aeft dropped 6 percent and burglary declined 1 
ercent. Motor vehicle theft, the sole property 
rime to increase in volume, rose 1 percent. 

Unlike the property crimes, the violent crimes, 
amprising 9 percent of the total Crime Index, 



increased 2 percent collectively. Murder increased 
2 percent; forcible rape, 1 1 percent; and aggravated 
assault, 6 percent. Only robbery declined, down 4 
percent from the 1976 experience. 

Since 1973, the Crime Index offenses increased 
25 percent. The violent crimes rose 15 percent, 
and the property crimes were up 27 percent in 
volume during this five-year period. 

The estimated 1977 crime figures for the United

Based on the Crime Index offenses, crime rates 
jlate the incidence of reported crime to popula- 
on, and are frequently viewed as victim risk 
ites. However, many factors, some of which are 
io\\Ti on page v of this publication, influence 
le nature and extent of crime in a particular 



community. 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. 
The following table lists the crime rates for the 
four geographic regions of the United States.

The table, "Crime Rate by Area, 1977," presents 
the crime experience in metropolitan areas, rural 
areas, and cities and towns outside metropolitan 
areas. This table shows that there are higher 
crime rates in the cities, particularly in the metro- 
politan areas.

Crime Index Tabulatiom 

The following tabulations show the distribution 
of crime in the United States as a whole and lor 
geographic divisions; individual states; Standard 
Metropolitan Statistical Areas; and cities, towns, 
and counties. The measure used is a Crime Index 



consisting of seven offenses: murder and non- 
negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, 
aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, and 
motor vehicle theft. 

Although the total number of criminal acts that 
occur is unknown, offenses reported to law enforce- 
ment agencies are at the present time the most 
accurate source of crime data. Not all crimes com( 
to the attention of law enforcement; not all crimes 
are of sufficient importance to be significant as ar 
index; and not all important crimes occur witl 
enough regularity to be meaningful in an index 
With these considerations in mind, the above 
mentioned crimes were selected as a group t( 
furnish an abbreviated and convenient measure o 
the crime problem. 

It is important to remember in reviewing th< 
tables that, as mentioned earlier, many factor 
can cause the volume and type of crime to varj 
from place to place. Population, one of thesi 
factors, is used in computing crime rates; however 
the element of transient population affects al 
communities to some degree. Since estimates o 
current permanent population are used to con 
struct crime rates, this mobility in populations i 
not accounted for in the figures. 

In addition to the presentations outlined above 
national averages for the type and value of prop 
erty stolen, by offense — including further break 
downs, by type, for the robbery, burglary, an 
larceny-theft classifications — are included in th 
tables. Also, the type and value of propert; 
stolen, including the percent recovered national! 
by law enforcement investigation, are presentee 

National averages can provide the law enforce 
ment administrator with valuable guidance i 
analyzing the local crime count, as well as th 
performance of his force in combating crime. Th 
analysis, however, does not end with such a com 
parison, for it is only through an appraisal c 
local conditions that a clear picture of the com 
munity crime problem or the effectiveness of th 
law enforcement operation is possible.

SECTION III 
CRIME INDEX OFFENSES CLEARED BY ARREST 



Law enforcement agencies clear a crime when 
they have identified the offender, have sufficient 
evidence to charge him, and actually take him 
into custody. Crimes are also cleared in excep- 
tional instances when some element beyond police 
control precludes the placing of formal charges 
against an offender, such as a victim's refusal to 
prosecute after an offender is identified or local 
prosecution is declined because a subject is being 
prosecuted elsewhere for a crime committed in 
another jurisdiction. The arrest of one person 
can clear several crimes or several persons may 
be arrested in the process of clearing one crime. 

In 1977, law enforcement agencies reported that, 
nationally, 21 percent of the Index crimes were 
cleared. During the year, law enforcement agen- 
cies cleared 75 percent of murder offenses, 51 
percent of forcible rapes, 62 percent of aggravated 
assaults, and 27 percent of robberies. In connec- 
tion with property crimes, police cleared 16 
percent of the burglaries, 20 percent of the larceny- 



thefts, and 15 percent of the motor vehicle thefts. 
Law enforcement agencies are able to clear a 
higher percentage of the crimes against persons, 
not only because of the more intense investigative 
effort afforded these violent crimes, but more 
importantly, because witnesses who can identify 
the perpetrators are often available. 

Regionally, the highest overall Crime Index 
clearance rate was recorded by the Southern 
States with 24 percent, followed by the Western 
and North Central States, each with 21 percent, 
and the Northeastern States with 17 percent. 

Offenses Cleared by Arrest of Juveniles 

One means of measuring the involvement of 
youths in crime is to identify the number of 
crimes in which they are the offenders. In 1977, 
28 percent of all Crime Index offenses solved 
involved only persons under 18 years of age, while 
persons 10 to 17 years of age accounted for about 
15 percent of the total United States' population.

SECTION IV 
PERSONS ARRESTED 



The number of arrests are primarily a measure 
of police activity. Arrest practices, policies, and 
enforcement emphases vary within and among 
communities. The volume of police ai rests for 
certain types of unlawful conduct, such as drunk- 
enness, disorderly conduct, and some local ordi- 
nances, is particularly influenced by the above. On 
the other hand, arrests for robbery, burglary, and 
other serious crimes are more likely the result of 
standard procedures. The number of arrests also 
provides a useful indicator of criminal involvement 
of perpetrators by age, sex, and race, particularly 
for those crimes which have a high-solution rate. 
Procedures used in this Program require that an 
arrest be counted on each separate occasion a per- 
son is taken into custody, notified, or cited. Aimual 
arrest figures do not measure the number of indi- 
viduals taken into custody since one person may 
be arrested several times during the year. For 
example, as noted above, recurrent arrests tend to 
occur for offenses against public order, such as 
drunkenness, vagrancy, disorderly conduct, and 
related violations. 

In 1977, law enforcement agencies made an 
estimated 10.2 million arrests nationally for all 
criminal acts other than traffic violations. Na- 
tionally, the arrest rate was 47 for each 1,000 
persons. For cities with populations over 250,000, 
the rate was 67 arrests per 1,000 inhabitants; for 
suburban areas, 39; and in the rural areas the 
arrest rate was 32. 

Arreit Trends 

Police arrests for all crimes other than traffic 
offenses decreased less than 1 percent in 1977 from 
1976. During this time, arrests of persons under 18 
years of age decreased 2 percent, while arrests of 
persons 18 years of age and over showed a 1 -per- 
cent decline. Using only arrests for Crime Index 
offenses to compute a trend for all ages resulted in 
a 1-percent decrease during 1977 as compared to 
1976. 



During the 5-year period, 1973-1977, arrests for 
all offenses except traffic increased 4 percent, with 
the arrests of persons under 18 years of age up 3 
percent and the arrests of persons 18 years of age 
and over up 4 percent. When restricted to Crime 
Index offenses, the increase in total arrests was 19 
percent during the 5 years. Arrests of persons 
under 18 years of age increased 13 percent, while 
adult arrests increased 25 percent. Violent crime 
arrests for persons under 18 years of age increased 
6 percent, while the property crime arrests in- 
creased 13 percent. 

Arrests for drug abuse violations, 1977 over 
1976, decreased 3 percent nationally. From 1973 
to 1977, arrests for these violations decreased 7 
percent. The accompanying table sets forth, by 
geographic region, the types of drugs involved in 
violations resulting in arrests during 1977.

ment of the young-age groups in police arrests 
was higher than the national figures, with the 
under 15 age group represented in 9 percent; under 
18, 28 percent; under 21, 46 percent; and under 
25, 61 percent. In the rural areas the distributions 
were lower for the younger age groups, with the 
under 15 group being involved in only 3 percent; 
under 18 in 14 percent; under 21 in 31 percent; 
and those under 25 in 49 percent of total police 
arrests. 

When only the Index crimes were considered, 
16 percent of all persons arrested in the Nation 
during 1977 were under the age of 15, 41 percent 
were under 18 years of age, 59 percent were under 
21, and 73 percent were under 25. 

Sex 

In spite of the fact that female arrests increased 
3 percent in 1977, male arrests outnumbered those 
of females by 5 to 1. While arrests of males de- 
creased 1 percent, nationally, males accounted for 
80 percent of the arrests for Crime Index offenses 
and 90 percent of the arrests for violent crimes. 

Arrests of females for Index crimes increased 1 
percent over 1976. Again, as in prior years, their 
involvement was primarily for larceny, which ac- 
counted for 22 percent of all female arrests. 



Arrests of males and females under 18 years of 
age each increased by the same margin, 3 percent, 
from 1973 to 1977. Arrests for Index crimes, during 
this 5-year period, increased 11 percent for males 
under age 18 and 19 percent for females in the same 
age group.

SECTION V 
PERSONS CHARGED 



Disposition data reveal the results of cases in 
which law enforcement agencies made arrests and 
subsequently charged the offender(s) in a court of 
jurisdiction. This information is important to the 
law enforcement administrator in evaluating the 
quality of investigative efforts and court presenta- 
tion functions. It should be noted that, due to 
lengthy judicial procedures, the figures in this 
section necessarily include dispositions for charges 
placed in prior years. 

In 1977, 80 percent of the adults arrested for 
Crime Index offenses were prosecuted in the courts ; 
of these, 68 percent were found guilty as charged, 
8 percent were convicted of a lesser offense, 
and the remaining 24 percent were released either 
through acquittal or dismissal. 

It must be recognized that not all arrested per- 
sons are turned over to the courts for prosecution. 
Among the various reasons for this are the follow- 
ing: disclosure of evidence revealing the arrested 
person did not commit the offense; failure of the 
victim to cooperate with or appear for the prosecu- 
tion; release of the arrested person after a warning; 
or lack of sufficient evidence to support either a 
formal charge or a subsequent prosecution. For 
example, 4 of 10 juveniles were handled and re- 
leased by the individual law enforcement agencies 
without preferring a formal charge or referring 
them directly to juvenile authorities. 

In this section, the tables concerning juveniles 
refer to those arrested and turned over to juvenile 
authorities. However, consideration must be given 
the fact that police methods of handling juvenile 
offenders differ widely from place to place. 

Forty-one percent of the persons processed for 
Crime Index offenses were young persons referred 
to a juvenile court jurisdiction. As in prior years, 
juvenile referrals for motor vehicle theft were 
significant, comprising 64 percent of those pro- 



cessed for motor vehicle theft. Of all persons 
processed for the other Index offenses, juveniles 
referred for burglary constituted 57 percent; 
larceny-theft, 38 percent; robbery, 33 percent; 
forcible rape, 23 percent; aggravated assault, 17 
percent; and murder, 9 percent. During 1977, as 
in past years, arson and vandalism also recorded 
high percentages of juvenile referrals. 

Of the adults who were prosecuted for Crime' 
Index offenses, 24 percent were acquitted or hadi 
their cases dismissed. In 1977, 30 percent of thei 
murder defendants were either acquitted or their 
cases dismissed at some prosecutive stage. Forty 
percent of those charged with forcible rape were 
acquitted or had their cases dismissed, and 3© 
percent of the persons charged with aggravated! 
assault were released either through acquittal or 
dismissal. 

Seventy-four percent of those adults prosecuted! 
for larceny-theft were found guilty of that offensa 
in 1977. This was followed by burglary with 62 
percent found guilty of the original charge, 57' 
percent for robbery, 56 percent for motor vehicle 
theft, 55 percent for murder, 49 percent for aggra- 
vated assault, and 47 percent for forcible rape. 

When all crime categories were reviewed, the 
percentage of persons convicted for the original 
offense with which they were charged remainedi 
high for offenses against public order and decency 
— driving under the influence, drunkermess, dis- 
orderly conduct, and vagrancy. Similarly, offenses 
against trust, such as fraud and embezzlement, 
recorded a high percentage of convictions on 
original charges.

As of October 31, 1977, 10,879 agencies, repre- 
senting over 201 million United States' inhabi- 
tants, reported a total of 437,000 full-time law 
enforcement officers for a rate of 2.2 officers per 
1,000 people. When full-time civilians were 
included, the total count of law enforcement 
employees was 545,000 for a national rate of 
2.7 per 1,000 inhabitants. 

Caution should be exercised in using rates for 
comparative purposes since there is a wide varia- 
tion in the responsibilities of various law enforce- 
ment agencies throughout the country. Just as 
the conditions which affect the amoimt and type 
of crime vary from place to place, so do the require- 
ments 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 community situated between 
two large cities may require a greater number of 
law enforcement personnel than a similarly sized 
community having no urban centers nearby. The 
crime conditions of the former are for the most 
part dictated by its geographic location. 

It is pointed out that the figures set forth in 
detailed tabular presentations on law enforcement 
employees represent national averages. They 
should be used as guides or indicators and not be 
considered as recommended or desirable police 
strengths. Adequate manpower for a specific 
place can only be determined after a careful 
study and analysis of the various factors which 
contribute to the requirement for law enforcement 
service in that locality. 

The functions of 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 adminis- 
tration of the county jail facilities. Likewise, state 



police and highway patrol agencies may have 
vastly differing responsibilities from jurisdiction 
to jurisdiction. 

Many cities in the United States operate with 
substantially fewer law enforcement employees 
per capita than the national average. For example, 
cities in the 10,000 to 50,000 population range 
averaged 2.0 law enforcement employees per 
1,000 inhabitants. This low average rate for smaller 
cities is offset by the fact that large cities, those 
with over 250,000 inhabitants, were substantially 
above the national average with a rate of 3.4 law 
enforcement employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 

Suburban areas averaged 2.4 full-time law 
enforcement employees per 1,000 inhabitants. 
Nationally, sheriffs' departments had an average 
rate of 2.1 full-time employees. 

The West North Central and West South Cen- 
tral Divisions of the country recorded the fewest 
law enforcement employees, 2.1 per 1,000 popu- 
lation, while the Middle Atlantic and South 
Atlantic States continued as the Nation's leaders 
in the rate of law enforcement employees to popu- 
lation. The Middle Atlantic States increased 
their rate to 2.8 from 2.7 the previous year. 
Similarly, the South Atlantic States increased dur- 
ing the year a tenth of a percent to 3.1 employees. 

Sworn Personnel 

Law enforcement employee rates based on 
sworn personnel only (excluding civilian employ- 
ees) showed the average for all cities was 2.1 
per 1,000 inhabitants in 1977. The city rates, 
nationally, ranged from 0.1 to 7.9 per 1,000 inhabi-

Civiliart Employees 

On the average during 1977, 17.5 percent of all 
city law enforcement personnel were civilian em- 
ployees. The proportion of civilian employees in 



law enforcement agencies is recognition of the fact 
that they can be used effectively to free sworn 
oflBcers for more imperative police duties.

The responsibilities of the various state police and highway patrol agencies range from full law enforcement responsibiUties to traffic patrol only. The miles 
of primary highway from "Highway Statistics, 1976" published by the U.S. Department of Transportation refers to highways that have been officially designated 
by states as the "primary system," or some similar term. The criteria for selecting these highways vary among the states. 

State motor vehicle registration data include automobiles, buses, and trucks. 

Any comparison of these data from state to state must take these lectors and the factors listed on Page v into consideration.

ASSAULTS ON LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS 

Detailed information concerning assaults on law 
enforcement officers is collected on a monthly 
basis by the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. 
Assaults are a problem to all local, county, and 
state law enforcement officers in the Nation and 
pose a continuing threat to those sworn to enforce 
the law. 



During 1977, 49,156 assaults on police were 
reported by 8,742 agencies covering an estimated 
168,868,000 inhabitants, approximately 78 per- 
cent of the United States' population. The rate 
of assaults on law enforcement officers for the 
Nation was 15 assaults per 100 officers. 

Injuries to Law Enforcement Officers 

Assaults on officers resulted in nearly 18,000 



282 



p 



cases of personal injury, for a rate of 5 injuries 
per 100 officers throughout the Nation. Geograph- 
ically, the injury rate ranged from a low of 3 per 
100 officers in the East South Central Division to 
a high of S per 100 in the New England Division. 



Within population groups, law enforcemeni officers 
in cities with 100,000 to 250,000 inhabitants exper- 
ienced the greatest rate of assaults with injuries, 
8 per 100. Sheriffs' and county police departments 
hail the lowest rate with 3 assaults per 100 officers.

Time of Assault 

Assaults on officers by time and population 
group are set forth in Table 72. Approximately 
one-half of the assaults on officers occurred be- 
tween the hours of 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. The 
period with greatest incidence was from 10:00 p.m. 
to midnight, when IS percent of the assaults were 
lodged. 



Actiyity of Law Enforcement Officers at the Time of 
Assault 

An examination of law enforcement activities 
disclosed that the largest proportion of assaults, 
32 percent, occurred while officers were responding 
to disturbance calls. The activity which resulted 
in the second highest number of assaults was at- 
tempting arrests for crimes other than burglary or 
robbery. Twenty-one percent of the officers as- 
saulted were performing this duty at the time 
they were attacked.

Clearances 

Nationwide in 1977, 91 percent of the assaults 
on law enforcement officers were cleared by arrest. 
Cities with populations from 25,000 to 50,000 
had the highest clearance percentage with 94 
percent. 

By activity, the highest clearance rates for all 
agencies were recorded for assaults on officers 



responding to disturbance calls and involved in 
handling, transporting, and the custody of prison- 
ers; in each of these two categories 92 percent of 
the offenses were cleared. Ambush attacks ac- 
counted for the lowest clearance rate with 59 
percent. Table 75 shows the percentage of assaults 
cleared by type of activity and population group.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 

In 1977, 93 local, county, state, and Federal 
law enforcement officers were feloniously killed 
in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. 
Virgin Islands. During the 10-year period 1968- 
1977, 1,094 officers were slain. The number of law 
enforcement officers killed in Puerto Rico and the 
U.S. Virgin Islands for the period 1971-1977 and 
the number of Federal officers killed in the period 
1972-1977 have been included in the tabulations 
with the local, county, and state officers for the 
10-year period.

Geographic Locations 

During 1977, 47 officers were slain in the 
Southern States, 19 in the North Central States, 
14 in the Western States, and 11 in the North- 
eastern States. One officer was killed in Puerto 
Rico and one in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The 
preceding chart shows the number of law enforce- 
ment officers killed by region for each of two 
5-year periods, 1968-1972 and 1973-1977. The 
accompanying table presents information on the 



officers feloniously killed in 1977 by geographic 
division and population group. 

Ninety-one of the 93 officers slain during 1977 
were from 83 different local, county, and state 
law enforcement agencies in 31 states and the 
District of Columbia. As indicated above, the 
remaining two were from Puerto Rico and the 
U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Among the states, California ranked highest 
with ten officers killed. The State of New York 
followed closely with nine officers slain. 

Circumstances Surrounding Deaths 

More law enforcement officers were killed re- 
sponding to disturbance calls, during 1977, than 
under any other circumstance. Twenty-two officers 
lost their lives while involved in this activity, 
which includes responses to family quarrels, man- 
with-gun calls, bar fights, etc. Eleven officers were 
slain by persons engaged in the commission of a 
robbery or during the pursuit of robbery suspects. 
Nine officers were killed at the scene of burglaries 
or while pursuing burglary suspects, and 19 lost 
their lives while attempting arrests for crimes 
other than robbery or burglary. 

In 1977, four officers were killed in ambush 
situations. Three of these officers were victims of 
unprovoked attacks which did not involve any 
apparent element of entrapment. The remaining 
officer was slain in a premeditated attack. 

Twelve officers were killed in 1977 while enforc- 
ing traffic laws, nine while investigating suspicious 
persons or circumstances, and seven while trans- 
porting or otherwise engaged in the custody of 
prisoners.

Types of Assignment 

Patrol duties within law enforcement organiza- 
tions are the most hazardous types of assignment 
for officers. During patrol, an officer is frequently 
in contact with suspicious or dangerous indi- 
viduals, and each of these situations constitutes a 
threat to the officer's personal safety. The patrol 
officer is readily identifiable because of his uni- 
form and/or patrol vehicle. He frequently must 
determine quickly and accurately if a person is 
involved in a criminal act. If the suspect consti- 
tutes a danger to the officer's personal safety, he 
must afford himself reasonable protection. 

The patrol ofiicer is placed in a variety of 
dangerous situations and must react to circum- 
stances as they occur without the benefit of de- 
tailed information or plaiming. He often risks 
attack through frequent encounters with criminal 
offenders at or near crime scenes. 

These perils are substantiated by the fact that 
officers assigned to patrol duty are the most fre- 
quent targets of the police killer. Law enforcement 
officers assigned in other capacities are confronted 
with equally tense and dangerous situations while 



performing their duties, but not with the same 
frequency. 

Sixty -six patrol officers were slain in 1977. 
Sixty-four of these officers were assigned to patrol 
vehicles, and two were on foot patrol. Twenty 
officers were detectives or officers on special assign - 
ments. In the highest tradition of the law enforce- 
ment profession, seven officers, while in an off- 
duty status, were taking appropriate police action 
relative to criminal matters when they were slain. 
During the period 1968-1977, 66 percent (724) of 
the 1,094 officers slain were assigned to patrol 
duties. 

In 1977, 37 of the on-duty officers were alone and 
unassisted when killed. During the period 1968- 
1977, 35 percent (379) of the officers were alone 
and unassisted when they gave their lives for the 
communities they were sworn to protect. 

Weapons Used 

Eighty-three, 89 percent, of the law enforce- 
ment officers killed in 1977 were slain with fire- 
arms. Handguns were used in 59 of these deaths, 
rifles in 13, and shotguns were used to kill 11 of 
the officers. Nine officers were slain with their 
own firearms. Of the ten officers not slain with

attempted to utilize their service firearms while 
in contact with their assailants. Twenty-four of 
these officers discharged their service firearms 
while attempting to protect themselves. Forty- 
nine percent (41) of the officers killed by firearms 
were within 5 feet of their assailants at the time 
they were shot.

Day and Hour of Attack 

As the accompanying data show, it cannot be 
stated that any one day is extremely more hazard- 
ous to a law enforcement oflBcer than any other. 
However, it is evident that more oflBcers are slain 
during the nighttime hours, more specifically 
between 9 :00 p.m. and 3 :00 a.m. 

The following table shows the number of law 
enforcement officers killed by day of week for the

Persons Identified 

Law enforcement agencies cleared 88 of the 93 
killings that occurred in calendar year 1977. In 
connection with these crimes, 109 persons were 
identified. Fifty-nine percent of the persons identi- 
fied were white, 37 percent Negro, and five per- 
cent other races. Sixty-one percent of the assailants 
had prior arrests, and 46 percent of those had been 
previously convicted. Thirty-one percent had prior 
arrests for violent types of crime such as murder, 
rape, armed robbery, aggravated assault, etc. 
Twenty-one percent had been granted parole or 
probation following convictions for prior criminal 
charges. Fifteen percent of the persons identified 
had a prior arrest for a narcotics charge, and three 
percent had prior arrests for police assault. Ninety- 
nine percent were male and one percent female. 

In 1977, 11 subjects were justifiably killed at 
the scene of the police killing or in ensuing confron- 
tations. One of these offenders was killed by a 
victim officer. Four offenders were wounded by 
victim officers, and three offenders committed 
suicide. 

The persons identified ranged in age from 15 to 
62. The median age of these individuals was 25 
years. Fifty-eight percent were between the ages 
of 18 and 30, and 11 percent (12) were under the 
age of 18. 

In the period 1966-1975, the most recent 10-year 
period for which complete disposition data are 
available, 1,455 knowni persons were involved in 
connection with the killing of 1,023 law enforce- 
ment officers. One thousand two hundred and 
fifteen of these offenders were arrested and charged 
in connection with the killings of the officers. 
Available court disposition data regarding the 
offenders found guilty of the officers' murders dis-

APPENDIX I 

TABLE METHODOLOGY 



This appendix is to assist the reader in under- 
stantling the tables presented in this publication. 
By utilizing the following key, the reader will gain 
a better understanding of table construction. 
Key : A) Column 1 shows the table number. This 
appendix will refer to Tables 1 through 
57, Crime in the United States — 1977. 

B) Column 2 indicates the type of crime 
statistics presented. Four distinct types 
of data are submitted to UCR by law 
enforcement agencies : 

1 . offense (o) 

2. clearance (c) 

3. arrest (a) 

4. disposition (d) 

C) Column 3 indicates the reporting period 
for the data. Submission of data is either 
monthly (M) or annually (A) . 

D) Column 4 indicates the level of sub- 
mission necessary for an agency's statis- 
tics to be included in a table. There are 
three levels of agency participation. 

1. Agencies having reported data 
for all 12 months of the year. 

2. Agencies having reported data 



for less than 12 months of the 

year. 
3. Nonreporting agencies. 
This column indicates whether or not 
the statistics from each agency level 
are included in the table (s). For ex- 
ample. Table 1 includes all three agency 
reporting levels, but Table 14 presents 
only the data from agencies reporting 
for the entire year. 

E) Column 5 indicates how each table was 
constructed. Data adjustments, if any, 
are discussed along with various defini- 
tions of data aggregation. 

F) Column 6 contains general comments 
regarding the potential use and misuse 
of the statistics presented. 

G) Column 7 indicates the percent of law 
enforcement agencies, as well as the 
percent of the total United States' 
population, represented in each table 
or family of tables. For example. Table 1 
represents national level statistics for all 
agencies, while Table 56 statistics are 
compiled from a more limited group of 
agencies.

ing at least 75% reporting. Crime statistics 
include estimated offense totals for agen- 
cies submitting less than 12 months of of- 
fense statistics for 1977. Topulation statis- 
tics represent July I, 1977, estimates. 
The statistics under the heading "Area 
Actually Reporting" represent reported 
oHense totab for agencies submitting all 12 
months of offense reports plus estimated 
offense totals for agencies submitting less 
than 12, but more than 2 months of olTense 
reports. The statistics under the heading 
"Estimated Total" represent the above 
plus the estimated offense totals for agen- 
cies submitting less than 3 months of of- 
fense reports. The tabular breakdowns are 
according to UCR definitions (App. II). 

"Cities and Towns" are defined to be agen- 
cies in Population Groups I through V 
(App. III). The population classification 
of agencies is based on July 1, 1977, pop- 
ulation estimations of each agency. 



Student enrollment figures are adjusted by 
converting part-time students into full- 
time equivalents (FTE) as provided by 
the National Center for Education Statis- 
tics of the U.S. Department of Health, 
Education, and Welfare. FTEs are com-

General Comments 



(6) 



The 1977 crime trend statistics are 1-year 
comparisons based on 1977 reported crime 
activity. Only common reported months 
for individual agencies are included in 1977 
trend calculations. Populations represent 
July 1, 1977, estimations of individual 
agencies. The tabular breakdowns are 
according to UCR crime definitions (App. 
II) and population classifications (App. 
III). Note that "Suburban and Non-Sub- 
urban Cities" represents all city agencies 
other than core cities for SMSAs. 

The 1977 crime rates are the ratios of the 
aggregated 1977 crime volumes and the 
aggregated 1977 populations of the contrib- 
uting agencies. Population statistics repre- 
sent July 1, 1977, estimations of individual 
agencies. The tabular breakdowns are 
according to UCR crime definitions (App. 
II) and population classifications (App. 
III). Note that "Suburban and Non- 
Suburban" represents all city agencies 
other than core cities for SMSAs. 

Offense total and value lost total are com- 
puted for each Index offense category. An 
average value loss per category is com- 
puted. Percent distribution is derived 
based on offense total with each Index 
offense. Trend statistics are derived based 
on agencies with at least 6 common months 
complete for 1976 and 1977. 

The 1977 clearance rates are based on offense 
and clearance volume totals of the contrib- 
uting agencies for 1977. Population statis- 
tics represent July 1, 1977, estimations of 
individual agencies. The tabular break- 
downs are according to UC R crime defini- 
tions (App. II) and population classifica- 
tions (App. III).

1977. An equivalent population is used 
when 6 through 11 months are used. The 
"Total Estimated Arrests" statistic is the 
stun of estimated arrest volumes for each of 
the 29 offenses. Each individual arrest 
total is the sum of the estimated volumes 
within each of the eight population groups 
(App. III). Each group's estimate is the 
reported volume (as shown in Table 25) 
divided by the percent ol total group popu- 
lation reporting (as estimated for July 1, 
1977), 
For example, in the Riual Area, agencies 
having reported 6 or more months repre- 
sent 43,679 burglary arrests and 81.6% of 
the total riu^l population. The rural 
biu^lary arrest total is estimated to be:

APPENDIX II 



OFFENSES IN UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING 



Offenses in Uniform Crime Keporting 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 in- 
formation are 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 f oUows : 

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

2. Forcible rape. — The carnal knowledge of 
a female forcibly and against her will in the cate- 
gories of rape by force and attempts or assaults 
to rape. Excludes statutory offenses (no force 
used — victim under age of consent). 

3. Robbery. — Stealing or taking anything 
of value from the care, custody, or control of a 
person by force or by violence or by putting in 
fear, such as strong-arm robbery, stickups, armed

4. Agsravated assault. — Assault with intent 
to kill or for the purpose of inflicting severe bodily 
injury by shooting, cutting, stabbing, maiming,

plosives, or other means. Excludes simple assaults. 

5. Burglary — breaking or entering. — House- 
breaking or any breaking or unlawful entry of a

following population groupings : 



Population group 



Political label 



Population range 



I _ City Over250,000. 

II City _ _ _. 100,000 to 250,000. 

III... _ City _ .- 60,000 to 100,000.

V City 10,000 to 25,000. 

VI City Less than 10.000. 

VIII Kural county 

IX Suburban county 



The Rural Area is that portion of a county 
outside the SMSA excluding areas covered by 
city police agencies. 

Suburban Area refers to cities with less than 
50,000 inhabitants plus counties within an 
SMSA (excluding the central city or cities). 
The number of full-time law enforcement 
agencies serving the population groups will vary 
shghtly from year to year due to geopolitical 
consolidation, municipal incorporation, etc. The 
following table shows the number of UCR con- 
The major source of Uniform Crime Reporting tributing agencies within each population group. 
(UCR) data is the individual police agency; 
therefore, some geographical aggregations may 
differ from standard Census definitions to render 
them consistent to police reporting areas and 
jurisdictions. UCR employs standard city and 
Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA) 
classifications from the Bureau of the Census, 
but rural and suburban areas are slightly changed 
to match the reporting area of the local police. 
The definitions used by the UCR Program for 
these two entities are as follows :

APPENDIX IV 
VIOLENT AND PROPERTY CRIME RATES 



Accurate presentation of collected data is a very 
important aspect of the Uniform Crime Reporting 
(UCR) Program. For meaningful crime analysis, 
in particular, the importance of a dependable 
Crime Index cannot be overemphasized. There- 
fore, in this Appendi.x, a paired inde.x (violent 
crime rate and property crime rate) is discussed 
as a possible means of augmenting and refining the 
presentation of crime data. In short, the proposed 
supplementary approach involves endowing the 
violent crime rate and the property crime rate 
with an elevated status as separate crime indica- 
tors in addition to regarding them as subtotals of 
the Crime Index total. Violent Crime Index and 
Property Crime Index will refer to violent and 
property crime totals respectively. Violent and 
property crime rates are similarly defined. 

In order to see the relative volume of Index 
crimes, the following table has been constructed. 
It will be noted that the percent distribution is the 
same for both volume and crime rate. 

It will be noted from the table below that violent 
crime accounts for onh' 9.2 percent of the total, 
while ])roperty crime constitutes the major portion 
of the total Crime Index with 90. S percent. 
Consequently, even a significant change in violent 
crime can only have minimal impact on the Crime 
Index total. On the other hand, a minor change in 
property crime would substantially affect the 
Crime Index total. To illustrate, when property 
crime is kept constant, violent crime would have 
to increase 10.8 percent in order for the Crime 
Index total to increase 1 percent. Similarly, 
a 100.0 percent increase in violent crime would 
result in a 9.2 jjercent increase in the Crime Index 
total, again making the hvjjothetical assumption 
that property crime is held constant. The sig- 
nificant influence of property crime on the Crime 
Index total is a major reason for considering a 



jjaired Crime Index rate. There are a number of 
other factors that further support the utilization 
of se])arate violent crime and property crime 
intlices in addition to a Crime Index total. They 
are discussed below.

Violent crime and property crime have different 
characteristics, seriousness, impact, and trend. 
The former is generally characterized by threat 
or actual bodily harm, whereas the latter consists 
of offenses that in no way threaten life or limb. 
Violent crime is characterized by a higher degree 
of seriousness than property crime. Furthermore, 
the difference between these two types of crime 
can be illustrated by the following example. UCR 
data indicated that the female arrest ratio in the 
past two decades had shown a shght decline for 
violent crime. However, for property crime, the 
ratio figures have substantially increased. If the 
data were combined into a total Crime Index, 
the aforementioned difference would be concealed. 
Situations of this type point out that traditional 
crime analysis is enhanced by the augmentation 
of separate violent crime and property crime 
indicators. 

Violent crime and property crime are not only 
heterogeneous, but have a different order of 

307 



magnitude as can be seen in Table 1. The volume 
of violent crimes is in the neighborhood of one 
million for the Nation, whereas the property 
crime index is in the order of ten million. 

With res]iect to seriousness, it is generally 
agreed that violent crimes are more severe than 
most property crimes. However, accurately ascer- 
taining the comparative degree of seriousness is 
problematic at the present time. In addition, any 
seriousness measurement is subject to changing 
social conditions. Presenting se])arate violent and 
property crime indices would seem to be advanta- 
geous under these circumstances. 

Different areas of the country often exhibit a 
tendency toward one or the other crime types. 
A comparison of the 50 states in terms of violent 
and property crimes, for example, illustrated this 
point. Only a moderate degree of association was 
observed between the violent and property crime 
rates. 

Table 2 shown below represents data for all cities 
with populations over 250,000. The table was con- 
structed by computing separate violent and prop- 
erty crime rates. A product-moment correlation 
coefficient was computed to determine the degree 
of relationship between the two indices. A low 
degree of association (r=..34) was found, indicating 
that the violent crime rate anil the property crime 
rate do not necessarily behave in parallel. 

The paired index approach was used in Table 7 
"Number of Offenses Known to the Police, 1977, 
Universities and Colleges" of this publication. 
This was part of a generalizeil effort to mitigate 
the often misleading ranking of agencies. Needless 
to say, a paired crime index rate represents a lower 
level of aggregation than a single Crime Index 
total. The procedure promulgated could be carried 
further, keeping all seven Index crimes separate. 
However, it should be noted that statistical pre- 
sentation always involves balancing the amount 
of information on the one side and the simplicity 
of the data on the other.
