Offense and Arrest summaries
The following pages summarize the crime and arrest statistics reported
to the CBI by local law enforcement agencies. The statistics are divided
into the categories of Major Offenses, Other Reported Offenses, Primary
Arrests, and Other Reported Arrests. If an agency name is not listed,
it is because the statistics for that jurisdiction were reported by
the respective sheriffs office.
Caution must be taken not to compare the number of criminal offenses
which occurred to the number of individuals arrested for a particular
crime. There is not a direct correlation between the number of individuals
arrested and the number of offenses reported.
The number of offenses reported are arrived at by using the Uniform
Crime Reporting Summary based hierarchy rules. Therefore, although
multiple offenses may have occurred in a single incident, only the
highest ranking offense is counted. The arrest statistics are based
on the number of individuals arrested by a particular agency. An individual
is counted only once each time he/she is arrested, and the arrest
is counted in the month it occurs (not the month of the crime). Remember,
several people can be arrested for the same offense or one person
can be arrested on multiple charges. Therefore, if a person is arrested
on multiple charges at the same time within the same jurisdiction,
the arrest would be counted only once for the most serious offense.
The same rule applies whether the arrestee is an adult or a juvenile.
