The most numerous records on violent crime are managed in the Ministry of Interior: police is conducting criminal investigation of every discovered criminal offence with elements of violence, while different stages of police activity (recording the events, fixing of leads, conducting of operative and investigative activities, etc.), as well as various elements of the criminal offence (perpetrator, modus operandi, missing things, victim, etc.) are recorded in different records. In this respect, on the level of scientific description and analysis, in this paper I will try to explore current methodology of recording crimes with elements of violence, primarily focusing on the following: the list of criminal offences which are classified as violent crime in the records of the Ministry of Interior, with particular emphasis on the misdemeanors with elements of violence; the type of data of the recorded criminal offences with elements of violence; the records into which the data on criminal offences with elements of violence are entered; the forms into which the listed data is entered and the possibilities of getting the data on state of crime with the elements of violence on the territory of Republic of Serbia in the period after 2000.
