|Arrests involving Hispanic youth
|Hispanic juveniles accounted for 16% of all Hispanic arrests known to law enforcement in 2012.
Note: This table is based on data originally collected by the FBI’s National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), which relies on the voluntary participation of local law enforcement departments in the U.S. Not all departments that participate in NIBRS report data for a full year. In fact, about 10% of all participating departments reported data for less than 12 months in 2012. As a result, this table is based on data from departments that reported for a complete year. In 2012, nearly 5,400 law enforcement agencies contributed complete year arrest data to NIBRS. This table summarizes the data reported by these complete year reporting departments.
