BURGLARY STATISTICS AND OTHER REPORTS
A number of reports have been prepared relating to burglary crimes and statistics by the Office of Legislative Research (OLR).  These documents will serve as a foundation for this project.  The data found in these reports is generated using a supplemental information system developed by the Office of Fiscal Analysis (OFA) that receives regular output reports from both the Department of Corrections and the Judicial Branch.  For questions related to the documents listed below contact Chris Reinhart, christopher.reinhart@cga.ct.gov; 860-240-8400
