Crime Statistics

Information about Albuquerque crime statistics:

In 2018, the Albuquerque Police Department began reporting crime statistics using the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). NIBRS is the most current national framework for reporting crime and replaces the FBI’s Summary Reporting System (SRS). This change is important because NIBRS provides more comprehensive and detailed information about crimes against person, crimes against property and crimes against society occurring in law enforcement jurisdictions across the country.

The data in this report is based on the official data that APD sends to the FBI. But it is important to note that the numbers in this report differ slightly from the numbers published in the FBI reports. APD sends NIBRS data to the FBI on a semiannual basis and this data is based on the reports available at that point in time. The APD’s crime data system is dynamic and additional information may be added or refined after the data are sent to the FBI. Although the FBI updates its data bases regularly it does not update published reports.
