Crime Statistics

The Santa Clara Police Department participates in the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program, which is a statewide law enforcement program designed to provide a nationwide view of criminal activity. The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program to classify crime into two groups: Part I and Part II offenses, and each participating agency is required to report Part I crime statistics on a monthly basis to the California Department of Justice (DOJ), which is then forwarded to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).

crimeA

Part I offenses are selected for submission to the DOJ because they are considered to be the crimes most likely reported, and considered as crimes that occur at a sufficient frequency for comparative purposes. These offenses are broken down further into two classifications: violent crimes and property crimes.

crimeB

crimeC

The FBI combines criminal data from each participating agency and publishes their findings in an annual Uniform Crime Report. Further information regarding participating agencies and/or crime statistics for a given jurisdiction, can be found at: https://www.ucrdatatool.gov/Search/Crime/Crime.cfm.
