This page includes data on property crime from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI defines property crimes as those involving the taking of money or property without force or threat of force against the victims. Property crimes technically include burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson; however, because of limited participation and varying collection procedures by police, arson data are not included in total number of property crimes.
