South Lake Morton crime rates are not available from the FBI's UCR (uniform crime reporting) program, as a result, estimates are displayed in the table above. The crime reporting program from the FBI does cover more than 98% of the larger metropolitan areas, which represents more than 309 million U.S. residents. This data is gathered from more than 18,000 law enforcement agencies which include tribal, state, county, college, university and city levels. However, the FBI does not report crime on a neighborhood level, therefore estimates were used to calculate the South Lake Morton crime data.
