Part I Crimes

Since the 1930s, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been responsible for tracking crime in the United States through the Uniform Crime Report which is published annually.  Crimes are sorted by categories, and the most serious offenses are referred to as Part I Crimes.  As part of their report, the FBI considers eight types of crime to be Part I Crimes.  Violent crimes are murder, rape, robbery, and assault.  Property crimes include burglary, larceny, auto theft, and arson.
