Crime Victim Statistics

People aged 12 and up identify as different races, such as Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders, American Indians/Alaska Natives, and mixed people.
When compared to other age groups, people between the ages of 12 and 24 had the highest rate; adults 65 and older had the lowest rate.

When a crime occurs, it has an impact on families, neighborhoods, and communities. Many crimes result in bodily harm as well as social and emotional anguish, including injury, disability, early death, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Less physical activity can be a result of violent crime. Individuals are less inclined to walk or bike to their destination when their personal safety is endangered, regardless of neighborhood income levels.
