THE THREE SIGNIFICANT AREAS OF CONCENTRATION ARE: A GENERAL OVERVIEW OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE INFORMATION, A SUMMARY ANALYSIS OF THE DATA AND A SERIES OF DETAILED REFERENCE TABLES. THE UTILITY OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE STATISTICS, THE WISCONSIN UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM AND ITS CONCEPTS AND THE REASONS FOR THE STATE OF WISCONSIN'S PARTICIPATION IN THE UCR PROGRAM ARE ALL DISCUSSED IN THE FIRST SECTION. AN INTERPRETATION OF THE DATA IS PROVIDED IN THE SECOND SECTION FOR THE READER WHO IS INTERESTED IN AN ANALYSIS OF WISCONSIN CRIME AND ARREST INFORMATION.
