  • 1 The term known offender does not imply that the identity of the suspect is known, but only that an attribute of the suspect has been identified, which distinguishes him/her from an unknown offender.
  • 2 The term group of multiple races is used to describe a group of offenders of varying races.
  • 3 The total number of known offenders by age and the total number of known offenders by ethnicity do not equal the total number of known offenders by race because not all law enforcement agencies report the age and/or ethnicity of the known offenders.
  • 4 The term group of multiple ethnicities is used to describe a group of offenders of varying ethnicities.
