Crime and Arrest Reports
Monthly Crime Trends provides a cumulative, month-by-month view of crime and arrest trends for the current year, with comparison figures for the same period in the preceding year. This quarterly report examines major crimes and arrests reported by Virginia law enforcement agencies each month. Violent offenses and arrests reported are murder/non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape and other forcible sex offenses, robbery, and aggravated assault. Property offenses and arrests reported are burglary, larceny, motor vehicle theft, fraud, destruction-damage-vandalism, and all other property offenses; and drug arrests (drug/narcotics violations and drug equipment violations). Monthly Crime Trends currently shows only statewide trends. Locality-level trends will be added as soon as they are available.

Virginia Crime Trends is an annual report providing an overview of Virginia violent and property crime rates and drug arrest rates over the past decade. Virginia Crime Trends 2002-2011 is the most recent annual release. Longer-term Virginia crime and drug arrest trends are compared with national trends and with those of the five states bordering Virginia. The report also illustrates how crime and arrest trends have changed for individual cities and counties in Virginia. These trends show how the numbers of crimes and drug arrests per-capita have changed across and within the Commonwealth.
