Crime Reporting Federal, State and Local
Participation in the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) by the Grand Rapids Police Departmentis voluntary. The rules followed in the reporting of this information is dictated by theFederal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program divides offenses into two groups, Part Iand Part II crimes. Each month, participating law enforcement agencies submit infor-mation on the number of Part I offenses known to them; those offenses cleared by arrestor exceptional means; and the age, sex, and race of persons arrested for each of theoffenses. Contributors provide only arrest data for Part II offenses.The UCR Program collects data about
Part I
offenses in order to measure the level andscope of crime occurring throughout the Nation. The Program's founders chose theseoffenses because they are serious crimes, they occur with regularity in all areas of thecountry, and they are likely to be reported to police.The Grand Rapids Police Department reports crime information to the State of Michiganon a monthly basis. The State then passes that data on to the FBI for inclusion into theannual Crime in the United States report.
Kevin R. Belk, Chief 
Crime Reporting and theUniform Crime Report
The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR)Program was conceived in 1929 bythe International Association of Chiefs of Police to meet a need forreliable, uniform crime statistics forthe nation.In 1930, the FBI was tasked withcollecting, publishing, and archivingthose statistics. Today, several annu-al statistical publications, such as thecomprehensive Crime in the UnitedStates, are produced from data pro-vided by nearly 17,000 law enforce-ment agencies across the UnitedStates.Other annual publications, such asHate Crime Statistics and Law En-forcement Officers Killed and As-saulted address specialized facets of crime such as hate crime or the mur-der and assaults of law enforcementofficers respectively.
