North Carolina Crime Statistics


The North Carolina Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is part of a nationwide, cooperative statistical effort administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  While the program’s primary objective is to generate a reliable set of criminal statistics for use in law enforcement administration, operation, and management, its data have over the years become one the country’s leading social indicators.  The UCR Program collects data on the age, race, and sex of persons arrested for all crimes except traffic violations.
