Increases were reported in larceny, motor vehicle theft, forgery and counterfeiting, embezzlement, and stolen property offenses. Decreases were noted for burglary, arson, fraud, and vandalism. Behavioral crime rates rose by 1.3 percent between 1992 and 1993, with increases reported for weapon offenses, drug law violations, offenses against the family, disorderly conduct, curfew violations, and runaways and decreases reported for prostitution, gambling, driving under the influence, and liquor law violations.
