Preliminary 2010 Uniform Crime Statistics Released by FBI

December 2010: The latest statistics show a continuing decline in crime. A preliminary report released by the FBI shows a snapshot of the first six months of the year.

The early returns are encouraging. According to the Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Report, January-June, 2010, the nation saw a 6.2 percent decrease in the number of reported violent crimes and a 2.8 percent decrease in the number of reported property crimes compared to data for the same time frame during 2009.

The report specifically covers the violent crimes of murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault…and the property crimes of burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. It also includes arson, which is considered a property crime but is tracked separately for this report. The 2009 Uniform Crime Statistics (UCS) were released in May 2010 by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
