Notes for the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting Act Statistics Report (Chart II)


c. Under Uniform Crime Report (UCR) Part I Crimes guidelines, the crime of Rape includes Rape, Attempted Rape, and Sexual-Assault.
d. Under UCR Part II Crimes guidelines, Assaults–Non-aggravated include simple assaults as well as harassment incidents involving a threat to assault.
e. Under UCR Part II Crimes guidelines, Sex Offenses (excluding Prostitution and Rape) include Indecent Assault and Indecent Exposure.
f. All Other Offenses (except traffic) include, but are not limited to, trespass and violation of city ordinances

Chart I contains the statistics for those offenses reported to the University of Pittsburgh Police Department, city of Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, UPMC security, and University personnel who have significant responsibility for student life and campus activities. 

Chart II contains the statistics for those offenses reported to the University of Pittsburgh Police Department only as recorded for the Uniform Crime Report (UCR). These UCR statistics are derived, in part, from patrol areas in community areas not adjacent to campus.

Chapter 3 of the Pennsylvania Uniform Crime Reporting Act requires the release of crime statistics and crime rates to students and employees, and it requires that those statistics be available to applicants and new employees upon request. The crime rate is determined by a formula specified by the Uniform Crime Reporting Act and is calculated by dividing the number of reported crimes by the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) students and employees, then multiplying that number by 100,000.
