Why Is This Important?
This data is collected from every law enforcement agency in the country and reported by the FBI. It provides a standardized definition to generate crime rate statistics across agencies. It is useful as a barometer for measuring reporting rates of similarly sized cities. It is often used as a leading social indicator of community safety.
City Organization Impact on Performance

– Fort Collins Police Services provides services and deploys strategies to help maintain community safety. However, the crime rate is heavily influenced by outside factors.

Benchmark Information
Benchmark data is collected on an annual basis and is not available until late the following year. As such, this metric does not use outside benchmarking comparable data.
