Index Crimes Reported: 2016 – 2020 by County and Agency
Agencies are not included if they have not reported Index Crimes to DCJS or took no reports of Index Crimes during the five-year period.
New York State implemented the FBI’s expanded definition of rape in 2015; this resulted in an uptick in violent crime and reported rapes in that year when compared to prior years. As a result, caution should be used when citing or interpreting any percentage changes between rapes reported in 2015 and any subsequent year, to those reported in 2014 and earlier.
