Earlier this month the FBI released preliminary crime statistics for the first half of 2006 that show violent crimes rose 3.7 percent and property crimes were down 2.6 percent when compared to the first six months of 2005. The figures highlight the findings of a semiannual accounting by the FBI of crime in the U.S.

The report, the Preliminary Semiannual Uniform Crime Report, January-June, 2006, compiles the voluntary submissions of 11,535 law enforcement agencies.
