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 society Group A include drug/narcotic offenses; gambling offenses; pornography/obscene material; prostitution offenses; and weapon law violations. Group B includes curfew/loitering/vagrancy violations; disorderly conduct; driving under the influence (DUI); drunkenness; family offenses, nonviolent; liquor law violations; peeping tom; trespass of real property and all other crimes against property. S: Data Suppressed indicates that there were 4 or fewer events on which rates would be based.
