To make those comparisons, you need to look at the crime rate. The crime rate refers to the number of crimes per a set number of people. In our crime rates, we have chosen to report the crime rate as incidents per 1,000 people. By comparing these rates, you can determine whether a person in Barrington is at a higher or lower risk of being a victim of a major crime than people in the rest of New Jersey or nationwide.
