UCR Definition

The Florida Uniform Crime Reports program defines intimidation as an act that unlawfully places another person in fear of bodily harm through verbal threats without displaying a weapon or subjecting the victim to actual physical attack. This is only reportable when there is a domestic relationship between the victim and offender.

The UCR Manual contains more information about these definitions.
