California Crime Statistics
The California Attorney General (OAG) has the duty to collect, analyze, and report statistical data, which provide valid measures of crime and the criminal justice process to government and the citizens of California. However, the OAG website link to the Interactive Crime Statistics Tables is inactive.
The mandate of the Criminal Justice Statistics Center (CJSC) is to collect and report statistical data that allow for valid assessments of crime and the criminal justice process in California.
The California SAC (the CJSC) resides within the attorney general’s office. To achieve their mandate, the CJSC maintains several statewide data systems containing specific criminal justice data. Published on-line annually, these data are available through the Attorney General's OpenJustice website.
