California Department of Justice Releases ‘Crime in California 2012’ Report

The California Department of Justice released the Crime in California 2012 report which shows crime changed incrementally in 2012 compared to the prior year.

Based on data from local law enforcement agencies throughout California, the report notes that 2012 violent and property crime rates per 100,000 population remain at half the rate seen just 20 years ago.

According to the FBI, many factors can affect the volume and type of crime occurring, including local economies, reporting practices and population density.

The Crime in California report is compiled by the California Department of Justice and pulls together data reported by police and sheriff’s departments in all of California’s 58 counties. It presents an overview of the state’s criminal justice system through statistics for reported crimes, arrests, dispositions of adult felony arrests, adult related calls for assistance, and law enforcement officers killed or assaulted.

Crime in California 2012 presents an overview of the criminal justice system in California. Current year statistics are presented for reported crimes, arrests, dispositions of adult felony arrests, adult probation, criminal justice personnel, citizens’ complaints against peace officers, domestic violence- related calls for assistance, and law enforcement officers killed or assaulted. In addition, statistics for preceding years provide a historical context.
