NOTE: This metric is in the process of being updated due to a data reporting change by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and this change will be reflected as of Q1 of 2022.

  • This is a quarterly metric, currently reflecting Q2 2021 data.
  • Measuring the rate per 1000 residents provides a contextual way to view the amount of crime occurring while reflecting changes in the City's population over time.
  • Crime rates can fluctuate greatly when measured on a quarterly basis, due to seasonality and other factors. For this reason, Fort Collins Police Services compares the actual rates to expected normal ranges per quarter.
