Categories of Crime

The [California Penal Code] is complex and the choice of what charges to make against any individual requires a high degree of precision.

For our purpose of analyzing crime in Berkeley at an aggregate level, however, we've chosen to organize specific statutes and charges in the categories below. This tradeoff between conciseness and precision allows us to rollup the various kinds of assault, battery, and other attacks on other people as "Violence." As readers will see, there is a tremendous range here, going from minor incidents on up to murder.

Our intention is not to understate the severity of any offense, to diminish the pain of any victim, or to imply that a person accused of one violent crime is a priori capable of committing all of the others. And yet, to have an easily accessible view of the broad landscape, it's necessary to introduce some simplifications every one of which is laid out here.

Those who wish to press down into incident level detail can do so using BPD's open data services.
