Annotation: This 1990 report on crime in Alaska describes the Uniform Crime Reporting Program and presents statistics on crime in general, individual Part I offenses, and law enforcement employees.
Abstract: The crime summary indicates that Alaska experienced an increase of 10.6 percent in the total number of Crime Index offenses in 1990. Among the violent crimes (murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault), forcible rape had the highest increase (up 49.1 percent). The only decline occurred in criminal homicide which dropped by 13.9 percent compared to 1989. The total property crime offenses showed an increase of 10.3 percent with motor vehicle theft having the greatest increase (26.9 percent). For each Part I offense, the report presents the trend for 1986-90 and a 1990 summary. Other data for murder indicate month; victim-offender relationship; weapon; and offenders and victims by age, sex, and race. Data on rape show arrests by age, sex, and race; monthly distribution; and attempt versus force. Robbery data encompass arrests by age, sex, and race; monthly distribution; weapon; and place of occurrence. Data on aggravated assaults include weapon, and data on burglary address entry and place/time of occurrence in addition to data similar to the other offenses. Tables for contributing agencies are provided.
