Crime Solution (Clearance) Rates

In 2018, murder and manslaughter crimes had the highest clearance rate at 62%. (A crime is "cleared" when an arrest is made.) Clearance rates for other offenses: aggravated assault 52%; rape 33%; robbery 30%; arson 22%; burglary 14% and motor vehicle theft 13%. In fiction, criminals usually get caught and are brought to justice. Not so in real life.
