month, the Records Bureau provides a
detailed report of the total serious
crimes which occur in the city. These
reports are administered by the State
of California Department of Justice and
the Federal Bureau of Investigation to
monitor crime trends in California and
in America. Developed in 1920, the reporting
processes evolved to be called the Uniform
Crime Reporting and the Monthly Arrest
and Citation Register standards. Links
to detailed charts of the crime statistics
for the City of Cypress are listed below.
The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) is a city, county and state law enforcement program. This program provides a nationwide view of crime based on the submission of statistics by law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Since the incorporation of the City of Cypress, the Cypress Police Department has participated in this program and provided yearly statistics in compliance with the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigations standards. Every case report is evaluated under the UCR requirements classifying by seriousness and frequency, also called Part 1 and 2 crimes, and scored based on the hierarchy of the primary offense.
The City of Cypress Police Department has maintained and published crime statistics with the expectation of providing accurate compilations to aide in community-oriented policing facets and overall community awareness.
