The Bureau of Justice Statistics collects statistical information on crime, criminal offenders, victims of crime, and the operation of justice systems at all levels of government.
Their dynamic Arrest Data Analysis Tool allows you to generate graphs and tables of arrest trends over the 30-year period from 1980 through 2009. You can view national arrest estimates, customized either by age and sex or by age group and race, for many different offenses. This tool also enables you to view agency-level arrest counts from local law enforcement agencies. Data are from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR) Crime in the United States series. BJS has expanded upon the FBI’s data to provide the first publicly available national arrest estimates broken down by sex, age group, and race.
