The Dunwoody Police Department voluntarily submits Part 1 Crime Stats to the GBI each month as part of the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting process. The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program was conceived in 1929 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) to meet a need for reliable, uniform crime statistics for the nation. In 1930, the FBI was tasked with collecting, publishing, and archiving those statistics. Today, several annual statistical publications, such as the comprehensive "Crime in the United States", are produced from data provided by nearly 17,000 law enforcement agencies across the United States.
The UCR Program collects offense information for murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson. These are Part I offenses and are serious crimes by nature and/or volume. Not all crimes, such as embezzlement, are readily brought to the attention of the police. Also, some serious crimes, such as kidnapping, occur infrequently. Therefore, the UCR Program limits the reporting of offenses known to the eight selected crime classifications because they are the crimes most likely to be reported and most likely to occur with sufficient frequency to provide an adequate basis for comparison.
The Dunwoody Police Department will provide a snapshot comparison of both Part 1 Crime stats as well as call data and workload statistics for our department comparing our current year with the previous year through the current month. Archives for previous completed years are also posted (below).
