The FBI statistics took a look at "part one" crime, which includes violent crimes such as murder, rape, and aggravated assault, as well as property crimes, such as burglary, arson, and motor vehicle theft.

While overall violent crime rates in much of the country do not compare with the high-water marks of more than two decades ago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been traveling the country since taking office earlier this year warning of a new and risky crime problem that threatens local communities.

In a news release containing Sessions' statement, the Justice Department said that the information released Monday "reaffirms that the worrying violent crime increase that began in 2015 after many years of decline was not an isolated incident".

The report showed there were an estimated 1.2 million violent crimes in the US a year ago.

Violent crime jumped almost 15% in America's biggest cities past year, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced Monday, amid an increase in murders in large cities ravaged by gangs.

Despite the increase, the national violent crime rate in 2016 was still down significantly from several years ago. The violent crime rate increased by 3.4% while property crimes dropped.

"Prosecutors should charge and pursue the most serious, readily provable offense. those that carry the most substantial guidelines sentence, including mandatory minimum sentences", Sessions said at the time.

At the same time, rape increased by 6.4 percent in the state.

Adam Gelb, director of the Public Safety Performance Project at the Pew Charitable Trusts, pointed out that only five years since 1971 have had lower violent crime rates than 2016.

The arrest rate for violent crime was 159.7 per 100,000 inhabitants, and the arrest rate for property crime was 420.6 per 100,000 inhabitants.

Major Patrick Coon of the Lima Police Department offered slightly different figures for several categories of crime than were cited in the Federal Bureau of Investigation report.

The murder rate in 2016 was 5.3 per 100,000 people, whereas in 1991 it was 9.8 per 100,000.

In Middletown, both violent and property crime increased. Chicago witnessed a barb in murders past year as did Las Vegas and Louisville; murders dropped in locations including New York, Cincinnati and Newark.

The number of violent crimes stayed the same at 35 for Caldwell County, while Gillespie, Llano and Mason counties reported fewer violent crimes year-to-year. The estimated numbers for two of the three property crimes show declines when compared with the previous year's estimates.

The FBI on Monday issued its 2016 crime report, which consists of data collected from police agencies across the country and released annually.

However, Sessions has been a proponent of the theory that crime has risen as scrutiny of local police has intensified and hurt morale, causing officers to be less aggressive on the streets, AP reported.
