The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation released new information on crime trends across the state.

The report looks at seven crimes the FBI considers serious, according to the OSBI. The FBI defines "serious" as ones that would occur regardless of geographical location, likely reported to law enforcement, would affront the moral sensitivities of our society's rational being, and would occur with sufficient frequency so that counting it would be worthwhile statistically.

The preliminary report tracks murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault as violent crimes. It also studies burglary, larceny, and auto theft as non-violent crimes.

Reported rapes are up nearly 15 percent from 2011 to 2012 across the state. Aggravated assaults climbed nearly 4 percent. But murders remained steady, and robberies decreased.

In the non-violent crime category, auto theft increased by 4.8 percent, larceny increased by 2.9 percent, and the number of burglaries in the state decreased by more than 2 percent.

More than 300 sheriff's offices and police departments contributed to the report.
