It should be noted that during the year-end process for the 2008 data, the MICR system was being converted from a Mainframe to an Oracle environment and this delayed the freezing of the data. While the Michigan State Police makes every attempt to collect and compile complete and accurate crime data from all Michigan law enforcement agencies, other circumstances may impact reporting. Therefore, the Michigan State Police make no representation, express or implied, that the information contained on this website is complete or accurate.
