Uniform Crime Reports
The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR)
Program was conceived in 1929 by
the International Association of
Chiefs of Police to meet a need for
reliable, uniform crime statistics for
the nation. In 1930, the FBI was
tasked with collecting, publishing,
and archiving those statistics. Today,
several annual statistical publications,
such as the comprehensive Crime in
the United States, are produced from
data provided by nearly 17,000 law
enforcement agencies across the
United States.

complete their entire careers without ever
consulting the UCR Handbook.  In the
rare instances when they do look at UCR
definitions of crime, you'll marvel at some
of the most convoluted interpretations
that these guys and girls will apply.

UCR Handbook." ~ Barry M. Baker
The single most universal factor that
confuses so many is their effort to
compare their state's criminal code
classifications to UCR classifications.  It's
maddening - they just can't seem to
comprehend the fact that UCR was
created to provide a - uniform - method
to report and compare crime - uniformly
- on a national level.

You'll eventually get to the point where
you won't even comment on their
self-inflicted stupidity.  You'll become
content in knowing that you're not the
