Crime Statistics

The Fargo Police Department submits single and multiple-offense incidents to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) through monthly electronic records. To maintain uniformity in reporting, the department counts various elements of an incident. Like the prior Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program, NIBRS includes the categories of Crimes Against Persons and Crimes Against Property. NIBRS data are based on five basic units of count: incidents; offenses; victims; known offenders; and arrestees. NIBRS also collects the additional category of Crimes Against Society, which are those offenses that represent society's prohibitions against certain activities such as gambling or prostitution.

Data may fluctuate month to month depending on the evolution of a case resulting in a change of charges.
