The Uniform Crime Reporting Program is a nationwide, cooperative statistical effort administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The Program's primary objective is to generate a reliable set of criminal statistics for use in law enforcement administration.  Seven offenses were chosen to serve as an index for gauging fluctuations in the overall volume and rate of crime.   Known collectively as the Crime Index, these offenses include the violent crimes of murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault and the property crimes of burglary, larceny (theft), and motor vehicle theft.  

2012   Part 1 Crime data are available via this site in .pdf format.  Past years' crime trend data for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is available via the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics site at http://www.ucrdatatool.gov/ .  

Pending the availability of the final UCR reclassification, reports providing preliminary counts  from the police incident reporting system are available via the  2014 weekly preliminary summary.   Readers are strongly cautioned against making comparisons from this preliminary data to the UCR crime trend data.  Such comparisons are invalid.
