Hamilton County Arrest, Court, and Public Records

Crime Numbers

Indiana does not provide crime statistics for its counties. Rather, the FBI provides limited crime data for certain Indiana cities and counties through its UCR (Uniform Crime Reporting) Program. The FBI has annual crime totals for Carmel, the largest city in Hamilton County. Crime rates for the city are representative of the overall crime trend for the county.

In 2017, participating law enforcement agencies in the City of Carmel recorded 17 violent crimes and 695 violent crimes. A closer look at these figures shows that there was no murder but 6 rapes, 6 robberies, and 5 aggravated assaults were reported. Incidences of property crimes include 61 burglaries, 596 larcenies, and 38 motor vehicle thefts. Compared to 2013 crime figures for the city, violent crime rate fell by 15% while property crime rate declined by 6.6% in 2017.

While murder and aggravated assault rates remained the same in 2013 and 2017, the five-year crime trend for Carmel City indicates that rape (15%) and larceny (4%) rates went up. On the other hand, the city recorded fewer robberies (45.5%), burglaries (52.3%), and motor vehicle thefts (13.2%) in 2017.
