is Uniform Crime Reporting?
Uniform Crime Reporting is a
statewide law enforcement program designed to
provide a nationwide view of crime based on
the submission of statistics by law enforcement
agencies throughout the country. Each agency
is required to report monthly crime statistics
to the California Department of Justice, which
will in turn forward the information to the
FBI. The FBI then uses this information to publish
their annual Uniform Crime Report.
For practical purposes, the reporting of known
offenses is limited to the crime classifications
listed in the Part I Crimes summary; they are
crimes most likely to be reported and crimes
that occur with sufficient frequency to provide
an adequate basis for comparison.

being by another.

knowledge of a female, forcibly and against
