UCR Definition 

The Florida Uniform Crime Reports program defines Miscellaneous Violations as all criminal violations of Florida Statutes that do not fall under any of the defined UCR arrest categories.

Note: This category includes criminal traffic violations. Also included in this category are violations of both city and county ordinances that are criminal acts supported by Florida Statute. Arrests for failure to appear and violation of probation are also reported as Miscellaneous Arrests.

 The UCR Manual contains more information about these definitions.
