The first section describes the UCR program in Arkansas, touching upon reporting procedures, data comparisons and limitations of UCR, and the Arkansas crime index. A crime summary outlines uniform crime reporting trends from 1981 to 1992, yearly violent and property crime trends, metropolitan crime, and contributing agencies and population coverage. The section on 1992 crime index data covers murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson; a separate section tabulates crime index offenses by contributing agency. The report presents figures on assaults against law enforcement officers, including policy activity and assignment at time of assault, number of officers assaulted per month, time of assault, and weapons used. The final sections present data on value of stolen and recovered property, arrests, and law enforcement employees.
