The figures were the first glimpse at the FBI’s new data collection system, which is voluntary and has been touted for years as a “much deeper” look at crime in the US.

But experts are already setting off alarms about using the figures.

Snider, a retired NYPD cop, said everyone should “proceed with caution” in using this data for new criminal justice policy.
