NIBRS Statistics

National Incident Based Reporting Statistics – Billerica MA

Updated with preliminary data through December 2013 – The table below is a sampling of crimes submitted by the Billerica Police Department to the Massachusetts Crime Reporting Unit and later published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. During this time period the Police Department changed records systems (2008) which may account for small changes in how we report crimes. Some crimes have been combined on the table for ease of review. The numbers below only account for those crimes that were actually reported to the Police Department.

We’ve changed how we report vandalism’s. Damaged property that occurs as part of a break to a property or vehicle is no longer reported as a vandalism as part of our NIBRS reporting.  For example, a damaged mailbox would be reported by BPD as a vandalsim, but a broken window that occurred as part of a house break would not. That case would be reported only as a burglary/breaking & entering. This is consistent with the guidelines set forth by the FBI and will account for lower vandalism numbers beginning in 2011.

Items in RED represent the highest statistic for the time period displayed.
