Analysis of Crime in the San Diego Region

Each year, SANDAG compiles and analyzes regional crime data using FBI Index crime information provided by local law enforcement agencies, as well as crime data obtained from the Automated Regional Justice Information System (ARJIS).

The FBI Index includes four violent offenses (willful homicide, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) and three types of property crime (burglary, larceny theft, and motor vehicle theft).

The Crime in the San Diego Region annual report is published in April. Other crime information also is compiled, analyzed, and published throughout the year.
