Georgia’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is derived from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s national program. Utilizing standard definitions and procedures established by the national program, crime data on the number of serious criminal offenses reported to or investigated by law enforcement and the number of arrests for all crimes are collected from law enforcement agencies. This data can then be used to portray crime in Georgia as well as used for comparisons throughout the State and United States.
UCR data presented in this annual report is compiled directly from summary offense and arrest reports submitted from Georgia’s law enforcement agencies. Data presented does not include estimates for incidents or arrests that might have occurred but are not reported.
The UCR data presented in this report, as well as additional data compiled for the UCR program, can be retrieved for special purpose reports upon request. You may contact the UCR program at (404) 270-8454 or fax your inquiries to (404) 270-8463.
