Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, Georgia Crime Information Center, Georgia Bureau of Investigation.


UCR data is compiled directly from National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) submitted from Georgia’s law enforcement agencies. Each offense is either a Group A or Group B offense type. Law enforcement agencies report Group A offenses as part of a NIBRS incident report and are included in these data, but they report only arrest data for Group B offenses and are not included here. Crimes against property Group A include arson; bribery; burglary/breaking & entering; counterfeiting/forgery; destruction/damage/vandalism of property; embezzlement; extortion/blackmail; fraud offenses; larceny/theft offenses; motor vehicle theft; robbery; and stolen property offenses. Group B includes bad checks and all other crimes against property. S: Data Suppressed indicates that there were 4 or fewer events on which rates would be based.
