Crime Statistics 2016

Image of police department logo and the words integrity, fairness, service.

 

During 2016, total crime in Baltimore County increased slightly by 0.1 percent compared to the previous five-year average for the same time period.

The 2016 data reflects a significant change in the FBI’s definition of rape. Specifically, the definition has been broadened to include male as well as female victims and to include human trafficking-involuntary servitude, human trafficking-commercial sex acts, and all first and second degree sexual offenses. (Largely due to this change in definition, Part I violent crime increased by 4.3 percent compared to the previous five-year average for the same time period.)

This is official data compiled in accordance with the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) System.
