While these reported crime rates are helpful, it is very important to realize that there is a gap between the actual number of crimes committed and the number of reported crimes; many crimes are notoriously underreported.

In addition, some crimes may be charged under different headings. For example, aggravated assaults that are committed against family members may be charged as domestic violence rather than assault. The charts below show more stats on yearly trends for specific crime types in Berlin.

While the above statistics are helpful in some circumstances, they do not give you information about how Berlin compares to the rest of New Jersey or to the nation in terms of likelihood that you will be the victim of a crime. 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 Berlin 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.
