WASHINGTON — The FBI released data on nearly 6.6 million criminal offenses reported through the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) in 2018. 

The latest Uniform Crime Reporting program report has information on 6.6 million incidents reported in 2018, up from 5.4 million the year before. The percentages of crimes committed against property, persons and society were roughly the same as 2017, as were the percentages of victims who knew their offenders (51 percent). 

Law enforcement reported information on about 5.6 million known offenders to the UCR program in 2018, according to NIBRS statistics. 7,283 law enforcement agencies submitted NBIRS data to the program as departments nationwide continue to transition to the new reporting system, which the FBI has slated to be completed by 2021. 

The FBI has released an interactive NIBRS map that provides agency-level data. In addition, state offense tables present statistics for each agency that reported 12 months of NIBRS data in 2018.
