 DisasterCenter.com developed the  following table to rank the rates of crime in Maine over time in relation to the rates of crime of other States .  This new way to examine fluctuations in the crime rate reveals patterns that are important for law enforcement executives, students of criminal justice, researchers, members of the media, and the public at large seeking information on crime in the nation. The crime "Index" is made up of the total number of violent and property crimes.  Since most crime is property related the crime index gives more weight to property crime.
