part I offenses | Definition

Doc's CJ Glossary by Adam J. McKee
Course: Introduction

Part I offenses are serious crimes, including violent and property crimes, in the FBI’s UCR Program.

Violent crimes include murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault, while property crimes include burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson. These crimes are classified as Part I offenses because they are generally considered to be the most serious and have the greatest impact on individuals and communities.

Law enforcement agencies across the United States report data on Part I offenses to the FBI as part of the UCR Program. This data is used to track crime trends and patterns over time and inform law enforcement policy and resource allocation.
