SBI Statistics
As part of the Criminal Information and Identification Section, the Crime Reporting Unit is responsible for the collection of data from law enforcement agencies across North Carolina. These data are then compiled for several major statistical programs.

The North Carolina Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is part of a nationwide, cooperative statistical effort administered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. While the program’s primary objective is to generate a reliable set of criminal statistics for use in law enforcement administration, operation, and management, its data have over the years become one the country’s leading social indicators.

Since 1973, law enforcement agencies throughout North Carolina have voluntarily submitted data to the State Bureau of Investigation on specific crimes committed in their areas of jurisdiction. The UCR Program collects data on the age, race, and sex of persons arrested for all crimes except traffic violations.

In addition to these reports, information is available on the Law Enforcement Officers Killed and Assaulted (LEOKA) Program and the Hate Crime Statistics Program via the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting publications.

Pursuant to N.C.G.S. 143B-903, the State Bureau of Investigation also collects data on traffic stops that occur within North Carolina.

Data is collected on domestic violence related homicides in accordance with N.C.G.S. 143B-901 and a report is compiled annually by the State Bureau of Investigation and provided the North Carolina State Legislature.
