SECTION VII

New Jersey Municipal-County
Offense & Demographic Data

 

    All crime rates are based on permanent, year-round populations. Comparisons of crime rates between individual municipalities should not be made without giving major consideration to the volume of seasonal population, transients, tourists, and labor forces.

    All offenses are recorded in the municipality of occurrence, regardless of the outside investigative agency, i.e., Federal, State, County, College Campus Police.

+   Crime rates were not computed for municipalities with population less than 100.
