Annotation: This report presents statistics from the Uniform Crime Reporting Program on crimes, crime clearances, arrests, and law enforcement personnel in 1995.
Abstract: The Crime Index total of 13.9 offenses was the lowest serious crime count since 1987 and amounted to a 1-percent decline from 1994. Thirteen percent of the reported index offenses were violent crimes, and 87 percent were property crimes. Larceny-theft was the offense with the highest volume, while murder accounted for the fewest offenses. Property estimated at $15.6 billion in value was stolen in connection with index offenses. Law enforcement agencies recorded a 35-percent recovery rate for dollar losses of stolen property. Law enforcement agencies recorded a clearance rate of 21 percent and made an estimated 2.9 million arrests for index crimes. The index clearance rate has remained relatively stable throughout the past 10-year period. Arrests of males decreased 2 percent from the previous year, while arrests of females increased 2 percent.
