Total Part I and Part II Crimes
Why This Is Important
Maintaining a safe, livable community is a top priority of the City of Minneapolis. Creating a safe, livable city requires that the City's law enforcement and criminal justice efforts include addressing the most serious crimes (Part I crimes), as well as those crimes that are less serious in nature. These less serious, Part II, crimes can have major impacts on neighborhoods and overall quality of life.
What's Being Done
The Minneapolis Police Department uses up-to-date crime data to target the assignments of police officers and other law enforcement and community resources according to the greatest need. In addition, the MPD works in partnership with the City's Regulatory Services staff and City and Hennepin County prosecutors to have the greatest impact with existing public safety resources.
About This Measure
Crime data are collected from police reports that are entered into the police department's Computer-Assisted Police Report System (CAPRS).
Part I crimes are the eight serious crimes including homicide, rape, aggravated assault, burglary, robbery, auto theft, theft and arson. All major cities report these measures to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Part II crimes include the following crime categories: simple assault, curfew offenses and loitering, embezzlement, forgery and counterfeiting, disorderly conduct, driving under the influence, drug offenses, fraud, gambling, liquor offenses, offenses against the family, prostitution, public drunkenness, runaways, sex offenses, stolen property, vandalism, vagrancy and weapons offenses.
