Uniform Crime Reports for calendar years 2012 through 2016

Uniform Crime Reports, or UCR, are offenses that are reported to both the Illinois State Police for Illinois agencies and to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for every police department in the United States. Offenses are scored using a hierarchy rule.

Offenses are given a numeric code which allows police departments to "score" all the offenses in an incident. Since any given incident may contain multiple offenses, only the highest ranking offense is scored. For example, if a citizen is mugged on the street and gets his wallet stolen and punched, there would be an aggravated battery and a robbery.

Since robbery scores higher than the aggravated battery, only the robbery would be counted. The table below shows the Bloomington Police Departments official UCR statistics for the last 5 years.
