ABSTRACT

Crime in the United States, 1995   [open pdf - 3MB]

"Crime in the United States has undergone many changes over the years. It has grown from the small booklet that was first published in 1930 to the large publication it is today. Through the years more tables have been added, and data collection has been expanded. Many law enforcement agencies have been involved in the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program's changes. As the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) has been developed in recent years, agencies across the country are changing the way they collect and report crime data, and state-level UCR programs are adopting NIBRS. This year the FBI UCR has experienced a different kind of change. The Program is in the process of moving from its traditional residence in Washington, D.C., to its new home in Clarksburg, West Virginia. The undertaking is enormous. It involves moving a Program that has been in place for over 60 years and all that it comprises- computers, equipment, files, furniture, publications, libraries, and most of all people. Most important is how this change affects longtime contributors to and users of the UCR Program. Hopefully, it does not and it will not affect them at all. It has been the desire of the UCR staff that while the program is experiencing an internal change, externally the change should be transparent. Contributors are still collecting and reporting data. They are still getting the assistance they need from the Program's components. Information is still being disseminated to the Program's users."
