Crime Reporng; Federal, State and Local 
 
The rules followed in the reporting of this information are dictated by the FederalBureau of Investigation (FBI).
 
The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program divides offenses into two groups,Part I and Part II crimes. Each month, participating law enforcement agenciessubmit information on the number of Part I offenses known to them; those offens-es cleared by arrest or exceptional means; and the age, sex, and race of personsarrested for each of the offenses. Contributors provide only arrest data for Part IIoffenses.
 
The UCR Program collects data about
Part I
offenses in order to measure thelevel and scope of crime occurring throughout the Nation. The Program's found-ers chose these offenses because they are serious crimes, they occur with regu-larity in all areas of the country, and they are likely to be reported to police.
 
The Grand Rapids Police Department reports crime information to the State of Michigan on a monthly basis. The State then passes that data on to the FBI for inclusion into the annual Crime in the United States report.

Crime Reporng and theUniform Crime Report 
The Uniform Crime Reporng (UCR) Program wasconceived in 1929 by the Internaonal Associa-on of Chiefs of Police to meet a need for relia-ble, uniform crime stascs for the naon.In 1930, the FBI was tasked with collecng, pub-lishing, and archiving those stascs. Today, sev-eral annual stascal publicaons, such as thecomprehensive Crime in the United States, areproduced from data provided by nearly 17,000law enforcement agencies across the UnitedStates.
 
Other annual publicaons, such as Hate CrimeStascs and Law Enforcement Ocers Killedand Assaulted address specialized facets of crimesuch as hate crime or the murder and assaults of law enforcement ocers respecvely.
