Note: This database shows all reported crimes, not just just those that resulted in citation or arrest. The state listed most of the infractions in this database by their state code citation -- PC 187, for example. The Sacramento Bee converted dozens of the most common codes to a written description. You can usually look up codes without a description here or here.
