The 2015 crime statistics for Fluvanna County are out.

Every year, the Virginia State Police (VSP) compiles a list of arrests broken down by county. In 2015, 223 people were arrested in Fluvanna. Of that total, 208 were adults and 15 were children.

Not all crimes are considered equal. The VSP breaks crimes into two groups: group A, which includes violent crimes such as murder, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault, and group B, which includes non-violent crimes such as trespassing, disorderly conduct, bad checks, and liquor law violations resulting in an arrest.
