Crime Statistics

Crime statistics listed here are provided by the Orange County Sheriff's Department, which provides law-enforcement services to the City of Lake Forest. The Sheriff's Department assembles the stats to share them with the Department of Justice, which provides an annual report, Unified Crime Reporting, that compares crimes across the United States. The City publishes the stats so residents can more quickly get a snapshot of crime trends in the community. As a snapshot in time, the statistics shown below may not include every Part 1 crime committed in any given month because of reporting delays.

The public can access crime statistics by area through the Orange County Sheriff's Department's website, and additional crime statistics and information on the FBI's website.

The Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) statistical data provided are of the aggregated data of index (Part 1) crimes that are required to be reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Index crimes consist of homicide, non-negligent manslaughter, robbery, forcible rape, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny/theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson crimes. The statistics provided should be considered as a summary of index crimes that occurred in the City of Lake Forest during the designated year. These numbers reflect the data reported and published by the FBI.

Uniform crime reporting (UCR) is a collective effort on the part of  law enforcement agencies across the country to present a nationwide view of crime. The California Department of Justice (DOJ) UCR program provides a statewide view of crime, based on the reporting of statistics.

*Effective January 1, 2014, the California Department of Justice revised the definition of rape. Thus, some crime reports with a sexually based offense will now be reported as a Part I crime (rape). Examples include: PC288-Sexual Abuse, PC243.4 Sexual Battery, PC289-Sexual penetration, and PC286-Sodomy.

Above you will find the number of Part 1 Crimes reported by the Orange County Sheriff's Department. They are categorized by crime type. Statistics are preliminary and subject to further analysis and revision.

The YTD statistics are reported from January to present month. The YTD % Change column compares statistics between the current year and previous year.

The FBI does not publish arson data unless it receives data from the agency for all 12 months of the calendar year. Arson is defined as any willful or malicious burning or attempting to burn.
