3 State of Wisconsin SCOTT WALKER Governor 1 S Pinckney Street Suite 615 Madison WI Phone: (608) Fax: (608) July 2011 Dear Colleague, I am pleased to present Arrests in Wisconsin This report, prepared by the Office of Justice Assistance s Statistical Analysis Center (SAC), is a collection of arrest data reported by Wisconsin law enforcement agencies in the previous year. It is based on monthly reports submitted to OJA through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. We greatly appreciate the continued efforts of personnel from the 398 contributing agencies in the collection and reporting of this important information. This report contains detailed information on arrest volume, rates, and trends for law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Wisconsin. In addition, it provides information on arrestee characteristics such as age, race, and sex for five separate crime categories: Violent, Property, Drug, Society, and. It is separated into three main sections: all arrests, adult arrests, and juvenile arrests. Within each of these sections, data are further broken down by crime types. For each crime type, a series of figures and tables are provided to show volume, rates, and trends. Following the lead of the FBI and their annual report, Crime in the United States, OJA discontinued printed versions of this publication in 2007 and relies exclusively on internet technology for widespread distribution. This allows OJA to maximize its limited resources, while continuing to provide useful and valuable data to a broad audience. Some of the more important findings are summarized at the beginning of the report (pg. 4), as well as at the beginning of the adult and juvenile sections (pg. 15 and 26). Major findings include a 10% decrease in overall arrests, with a 1% increase in violent and a 10% decrease in property arrests. In addition, drug arrests increased by 2%, while society arrests decreased by 12% and other uncategorized offenses decreased by 9%. I hope this report meets your needs and trust that you will find it useful. OJA continues to improve its statistical reporting procedures, as well as develop new and innovative ways to make this information available to the public. Should you have any comments or suggestions regarding this report, I encourage you to contact our office with feedback. Sincerely, Darcey Varese Acting Deputy Director Arrests in Wisconsin 2010 i 07/2011

8 Introduction Overview As mandated by the Wisconsin Legislature (Wis. Stat (1)(g)), the Wisconsin Office of Justice Assistance (OJA) is responsible for reporting information concerning the number and nature of criminal offenses known to have been committed in the state. This includes collecting crime and arrest data from 399 separate law enforcement agencies for the FBI s Uniform Crime Reporting Program (a nationwide cooperative statistical effort of more than 17,000 law enforcement agencies voluntarily reporting data on crime). The primary objective of UCR is to generate reliable information for use in law enforcement administration, operation, and management. Today, the American public looks to the Uniform Crime Reports for information on fluctuations in the level of crime, while criminologists, sociologist, legislators, municipal planners, the media, and other students of criminal justice use the statistics for varied research and planning purposes. This report, prepared by the OJA Statistical Analysis Center (SAC), is a collection of arrest data reported by Wisconsin law enforcement agencies in It contains detailed information on arrest volume, rates, and trends for law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Wisconsin. In addition, it provides information on arrestee characteristics such as age, race, and sex for five separate crime categories: Violent, Property, Drug, Society, and. The report also includes a breakdown of arrests by adults and juveniles. A. Background The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program was first initiated in 1930 by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). Recognizing a need for national crime statistics, IACP formed the Committee on Uniform Crime Records. The committee evaluated various crimes on the basis of their seriousness, frequency of occurrence, pervasiveness in all geographic areas of the country, and likelihood of being reported to law enforcement. After studying state criminal codes and making an evaluation of the recordkeeping practices in use, the Committee identified seven main classifications known as Part I crimes. The seven offense classifications include the violent crimes of murder and non negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, and the property crimes of burglary, larceny theft, and motor vehicle theft. By congressional mandate, arson was added as the eighth Part I offense category in Agencies classify and score these offenses according to a hierarchy rule in which, in cases with more than one offense, only the most severe offense is counted. During the early planning of the program, it was recognized that the differences among criminal codes precluded a mere aggregation of state statistics to arrive at a national total. Further, because of the variances in punishment for the same offenses in different state codes, no distinction between felony and misdemeanor crimes was possible. To avoid these problems and provide nationwide uniformity in crime reporting, standardized offense definitions were formulated by which law enforcement agencies were to submit data without regard for local statutes.

9 Introduction The UCR program, as originally designed, remained virtually unchanged in terms of the amount and type of data collected and disseminated for nearly 60 years. Yet by the 1980s, it had become clear that the nature of law enforcement investigations and reporting had changed dramatically since the inception of the program. As a result, the FBI initiated a thorough evaluation of the existing system with the purpose of formulating a phased in redesign effort to enable the program to meet the needs of law enforcement into the 21 st century. Based upon the recommendations of the evaluation, the FBI developed a new system known as the National Incident Based Reporting System (NIBRS). Unlike the aggregate summary based system, NIBRS is designed to collect all components of a crime, including characteristics of the offense and its associated victims, offenders, property, and arrestees. In 1998, the FBI released the final data elements and offense specifications of the new system. At that time, Wisconsin and other state programs began their efforts to implement this enhanced reporting system. Today, the state has 319 law enforcement agencies participating in Summary Based Reporting (commonly referred to as UCR) and 80 agencies participating in Incident Based Reporting (IBR) including the Milwaukee Police Department. Nationally, 45 states participate, or plan to participate, in the IBR program. Of those states, 13 have 100% participation rate from their local law enforcement agencies. Due to the increased reporting requirements of the new program, OJA is implementing it in phases to allow law enforcement agencies the time and resources needed to acquire the necessary technological capabilities. As the State of Wisconsin moves forward with the implementation of this data collection program, a number of additional agencies will be submitting IBR data in For a list of current certified and testing IBR agencies, please visit the OJA website. B. Format & Structure Due to the changing landscape of statistical information dissemination and available resources, in 2010 the Statistical Analysis Center followed the lead of the FBI and their annual report, Crime in the United States, by discontinuing all printed versions of this publication to focus exclusively on internet technology for future distributions. This allows the agency to maximize its limited resources, while continuing to provide useful and valuable data to a broad audience. With regard to structure, the report is separated into three main sections: all arrests, adult arrests, and juvenile arrests. Within each of these sections, data are further broken down by crime types (for definitions, see Appendix E). For each crime type, a series of figures and tables are provided to show statistical information such as volume, rates, and trends. Arrests in Wisconsin /2011

10 Introduction C. Limitations As presented by the FBI in their annual report, Crime in the United States, adequate assessment of criminality and law enforcement s response from jurisdiction to jurisdiction requires the consideration of many different variables, some of which are not readily measurable or applicable among all locales. Geographic and demographic factors specific to each jurisdiction must be considered and applied if one is going to make an accurate and complete assessment of crime in that jurisdiction. Understanding a jurisdiction s industrial/economic base; its dependence upon neighboring jurisdictions; its transportation system; and its economic dependence on nonresidents such as tourists all contribute to accurately gauging and interpreting the crime known to and reported by law enforcement. It is incumbent upon all data users to become as well educated as possible about how to understand and quantify the nature and extent of crime as reported by law enforcement agencies through the UCR program. Valid assessments are possible only with careful study and analysis of the various unique conditions affecting each local law enforcement jurisdiction. Specific to this report, caution should be taken when comparing the results to other previous annual reports. First, shifting of a law enforcement agency from one population category to another based on annual re estimation of the jurisdiction s population may have an affect on rates. Second, this report reflects offenses that were reported to law enforcement agencies in 2010 but may have occurred during previous years. Finally, changes to law enforcement policies and procedures and their effect on crime rates must also be taken into consideration. Arrests in Wisconsin /2011

11 Arrests Overview in Wisconsin Between 2009 and 2010, the State of Wisconsin experienced a 10 % decrease in the number of overall arrests. The number of violent arrests, however, increased by 1%, while the number of property arrests decreased by 10%. In addition, drug arrests increased by 2%, while society arrests decreased by 12%, and other uncategorized offenses decreased by 9%. Below are the major findings from each of the five individual crime categories: Violent In 2010, Wisconsin law enforcement made 8,066 arrests for violent crime, up 1% from Adults were arrested for violent crimes at a higher volume and higher rate than juveniles in Male arrest rates have been relatively stable during the past three years, while female rates have remained moderately consistent since Black arrest rates have been dramatically higher than all other race categories for the past five years. Property In 2010, Wisconsin law enforcement made 54,072 arrests for property crime, down 10% from Adults were arrested for property crimes at a higher volume than juveniles, yet juveniles were arrested at a higher rate per 100,000 population. Overall, both male and female arrest rates have experienced a general downward trend since For the past five years, Black and American Indian/Alaskan Native arrest rates have been consistently higher than those for White and Asian/Pacific Islander. Drug In 2010, Wisconsin law enforcement made 25,750 drug arrests, up 2% from Adults were arrested for drug crimes at a higher volume and higher rate than juveniles in With the exception of 2006, both male and female drug arrest rates have been relatively stable during the past five years. Drug arrest rates among the different racial categories have remained moderately consistent since Arrest rates in all but one racial category are lower than their respective rates in Society In 2010, Wisconsin law enforcement made 140,299 arrests for society crime, down 12% from Adults were arrested for crimes against society at a higher volume and higher rate than juveniles in Both male and female arrest rates have been on a general downward trend over the past five years. During the past five years, Black and American Indian/Alaskan Native arrest rates have been consistently higher than those for White and Asian/Pacific Islander. In 2010, Wisconsin law enforcement made 127,276 arrests for crimes classified as other, down 9% from Adults were arrested at a higher volume and higher rate than juveniles in Overall, both male and female arrest rates have experienced a general downward trend since For the past five years, Black and American Indian/Alaskan Native arrest rates have been consistently higher than those for White and Asian/Pacific Islander.

12 Arrests: Violent For this report, violent crimes include: Murder, Forcible Rape, Robbery, and Aggravated Assault. Overview In 2010, Wisconsin law enforcement made 8,066 arrests for violent crime, down 1% from last year (Table 1). Of the violent crime arrests, Aggravated Assaults accounted for 66%; Robbery, 23%; Forcible Rape, 9%; and Murder, 2%. The rate of arrests for these offenses was 143 per 100,000 Wisconsin residents (Table 2). Age, Sex, Race Adult arrests accounted for the majority of violent crime arrests in 2010, but when looking at the arrest rate per 100,000 residents, adults and juveniles had somewhat comparable figures. For example, adults were arrested at a rate of 154 per 100,000 adults (Table 8), while juveniles were arrested at a rate of 108 per 100,000 juveniles (Table 14). Figure 1: Violent Arrests by Age, % Adult 82% Juvenile Figure 2: Violent Arrest Rates* by Sex, Male Female Over the past five years, male arrest rates have remained relatively stable, experiencing minor riseand fall fluctuations. Female arrest rates on the other hand have remained fairly consistent over all five years Comparing by race, notable differences were found in the arrest rates between the four race classifications. Black arrest rates have been substantially higher than all other classifications for the past five years. American Indian/Alaskan Native rates have also been consistently high. White and Asian/Pacific Islander arrest rates have remained relative similar and stable over this same time period. For the past few years, arrest rates have steadily been decreasing for all race categories except Black, which instead has shown a steady increase. *It should be noted that beginning in 2005, and continuing through 2010, a number of agencies in the state began submitting crime data via the Wisconsin Incident Based Reporting System (WIBRS). The transition into this new reporting system may account for some of the change in numbers seen * Per 100,000 Wisconsin Residents per Sex Figure 3: Violent Arrest Rates* by Race, White Black Am.

13 Arrests: Violent Sex by Violent Offense Type In 2010, males were arrested at a greater rate than females for all violent crimes. As in previous years, Murder accounted for the least number of violent crime arrests with five arrests per 100,000 males and less than one arrest per 100,000 females. Both males and females were arrested for Aggravated Assault at a higher rate than any other violent crime, with males accounting for 84% of the total arrests. The arrest rate for Robbery followed the same pattern as the other violent crime categories, with males being arrested at a notably higher rate than females. Figure 4: Violent Arrest Rates* by Sex and Offense, 2010 Male Female Murder 5 0 Forcible Rape 25 1 Robbery 60 6 Aggravated Assault * Per 100,000 Wisconsin Residents per Sex Race by Violent Offense Type White arrests accounted for 54% (4,362) of the total violent crime arrests in 2010, followed by Black arrests at 42% (3,359) American Indian/Alaskan Native arrests at 1% (256), and Asian/Pacific Islander arrests at 1% (89). For further details, see Appendix D. In comparing the arrest rates of violent crime by race, sizeable differences were found between the four race classifications. Black arrest rates were higher than the other three race classifications for all four violent crime offenses. Most notably, the Black arrest rate for Murder was 22 per 100,000 black residents followed next by American Indian/Alaskan Native at 5 per 100,000 Asian residents. Similarly, the Black rate for Robbery was 357 followed next by American Indian/Alaskan Native at 25. Arrest rates for Asian/Pacific Islander were generally the lowest among the four race categories, followed by White and American Indian/Alaskan Native. Consistent with previous years, Aggravated Assaults accounted for the highest rates of arrests for all four race categories, while Murder rates were the lowest. Generally, arrests rates for Robbery and Forcible Rape are somewhat comparable. The only exception to this is found in the Black category, where the Robbery arrest rate was higher than the Forcible Rape arrest rate.

Motor Vehicle Theft, Embezzlement, Forgery, Stolen Property, and Arson, accounted for the remaining 8% of arrests. The rate of arrests for these offenses was 1,070 per 100,000 Wisconsin residents. (Table 3) Figure 6: Property Arrests by Age, % Adult 72% Juvenile Age, Sex, Race Although adults accounted for the majority of property crime arrests in 2010, juveniles were arrested at a greater rate per 100,000 residents. For example, adults were arrested at a rate of 968 per 100,000 adults (Table 9), while juveniles were arrested at a rate of 956 per 100,000 juveniles. (Table 15) Overall, both male and female arrest rates have been on a general downward trend over the past five years. As with previous years, males were arrested at a noticeably higher rate than females, accounting for 64% of total property crime arrests in Comparing by race, notable differences were found in the arrest rates between the four race classifications. Black and American Indian/Alaskan Native arrest rates have consistently been higher than White and Asian/Pacific Islander arrest rates over the past five years. Arrest rates for all four race classifications are down from five years ago. *It should be noted that beginning in 2005, and continuing through 2010, a number of agencies in the state began submitting crime data via the Wisconsin Incident Based Reporting System (WIBRS). The transition into this new reporting system may account for some of the change in numbers seen.
