Crime & statistics 

Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics 

Crime is the primary driver of police activity. The Sacramento Police Department reports crime occurring in the city based on the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) standard. UCR data is used in law enforcement administration, operation and management, as well as to track the fluctuations in the level of crime throughout America. The Sacramento Police Department provides these crime statistics in order to keep the public informed about crime and criminals in our neighborhoods and city.
