Attached are the preliminary crime statistics for the 2012 mid-calendar year. The Oxnard Police Department reports crime statistics to the FBI for the annual Uniform Crime Report (UCR). The FBI is responsible for collecting, publishing and archiving these statistics. This report was conceived in 1929 as a method of providing reliable, uniform crime statistics for the nation.
The report refers to “Part 1 crimes” which include two categories – violent crime and property crime. Violent crimes include: homicide, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. Property crimes include: burglary, auto theft, larceny and arson. The table below shows Part 1 crimes in the city of Oxnard for 2011 and 2012.
