Arizona Crime Statistics

Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) is the coordinator for the national (FBI) Uniform Crime Reporting Program.  Arizona DPS reports the nature and extent of crimes from data collected by the state’s law enforcement agencies. These reports are online back to 2002.

Reporting are local police agencies, county sheriff’s offices, college and university campus police, and state police agencies. Federal agencies and tribal police agencies do not report.

The Arizona Uniform Crime Reporting Program began receiving voluntarily reported statistics in 1975, prior to this they were reported directly to the FBI. In 1992 it became mandatory that all Arizona law enforcement agencies participate.

Below is the table of contents on the latest report to get an idea of what statistics are gathered and reported.
