Annotation: The 20th annual report prepared by Maryland's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program contains detailed statistics on criminal activities and crime patterns in the State during 1994.
Abstract: The report is intended to assist law enforcement personnel and State officials in planning crime prevention programs, assessing crime patterns, and developing legislation to combat criminal activities. Under the Maryland UCR Program, law enforcement agencies are required to submit Uniform Crime Reports, based on information obtained from complaints, investigations, and arrests. Uniformity in reporting is based on properly classifying offenses. Part I offenses include criminal homicide, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, and arson. Part II offenses include simple assault, forgery, counterfeiting, fraud, embezzlement, stolen property, vandalism, weapons possession, prostitution and commercialized vice, sex offenses, drug law offenses, gambling, offenses against the family and children, driving under the influence, liquor law violations, disorderly conduct, vagrancy, juvenile curfew and loitering violations, and juvenile runaways. Detailed statistics compiled by the UCR Program are tabulated for Part I and Part II offenses. Data on crime index offenses, crime rates, and crime trends are provided. Tables and figures
