The East Point Police Department participates in the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program that has been in existence since 1930, and is comprised of more than 17,000 participates from local, county, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies. The UCR Program provides law enforcement agencies with the necessary data to plan, formulate budgets, allocate resources and assess police operations in an effort to address various crime problems. Statistics gathered from the UCR Program are also used by other public and private sectors, including legislators who use the data to draft bills to address crime. Additionally, businesses utilize the information to determine how crime impacts the geographical areas of their respective establishment. Visit www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/ucr to learn more about the UCR Program.
The FBI warns against using UCR data to rank and/or evaluate any given jurisdiction on the effectiveness of its law enforcement agency. Crime is influenced by a variety of factors, including population density, economic conditions, policies of other components of the criminal justice system and attitudes of citizens concerning crime.
