Total Number of Bias Crimes Reported in Arizona
A bias (hate) crime is a criminal offense committed against a person or property which is motivated, in whole or in part, by the offender’s bias against a race, religion, ethnic/national origin group, sexual orientation group, disability, or gender.
It is important to remember that these numbers reflect only those crimes reported to and tallied by police agencies; many crimes go unreported. In addition, these data do not include reports from federal agencies or tribal police agencies in Arizona. Attempts to commit any of these crimes are included in the crime counts.
