Violent crimes saw a 4 percent increase in Modesto while Ceres saw a 52 percent increase from 2015 to 2016, according to the data.

Of the violent crimes reported to police in 2016, aggravated assault made up 64.3 percent, while robbery was 26.6 percent. Santa Clara County's Monte Sereno may be the area, as no violent crimes were reported there in 2016.

He said while the 2016 upticks should be addressed, preliminary data from 2017 indicates that crime is back on the decline.

But experts warn it's too soon to say whether the increase in violent crime constitutes a trend.

The new data that shows Detroit's violent crimes for 2016 total 12,842, nearly a full thousand lower than the FBI's number.

Previously released data were also revised for 2015.

"The overall picture is that homicide and violent crime rates went up dramatically in the 1970s and '80s and '90s, and then underwent a dramatic drop in the last 20 years, and leveled off", said Robert Weisberg, a Stanford University criminal law professor and co-director of the school's Criminal Justice Center.

Chicago led the nation in murders in 2016, with 765 people killed - more than double New York's homicide rate - though the IL city has a much smaller population. The last year more people were killed in a single year was 2006, when law enforcement recorded 17,309 homicides and the murder rate was 5.8 per 100,000 people. The city is continuing that trend this year, with 192 murders reported through September 17, down from 250 at the same point a year earlier.

"There just aren't any factors that would strongly indicate continued further increases", he said. Similarly, 1994's violent crime rate was 45 percent higher at 713.6 per 100,000 than 2016's rate of 386.3 per 100,000.

Analysts said the numbers do not add up to any clear trend in recent years.

Did Kylie Jenner just drop a massive hint she's pregnant on Instagram?
When Harper's Bazaar tweeted out the link to the article, Kardashian responded shortly after to call it "a very fake story". This could be the first time that a family member addressed the reported pregnancy since it was reported by TMZ last week.

The FBI's closely watched report tallies four categories of violent crime - murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault.

Some big cities saw increases in violence while others did not.

"For those purposes", he said, "these data are very, very handy".

Some criminologists have contested that conclusion, saying that rates for overall crime and violent crime are still much lower today than they were several decades ago.

The same can not be said of crimes like rape and robbery.

"There were dire predictions of a crime wave and calls for draconian policies", he said.

Nationally, the violent crime numbers were driven by year-to-year surges in cities like Chicago, Baltimore and Phoenix.

Property crime also decreased in many cities across the state.

In 2016, there were 13,217 law enforcement agencies that reported their staffing levels to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The estimates come from data submitted by 16,782 law enforcement agencies nationwide.
