Selecting any state on the left will display the crime rate, as well as a highlight of the graph in the middle. You can even browse through the graphs and data points to find rates for a specific year for a given state.

Overall, the crime rates definitely appear to be increasing (not a good thing), but some may attribute this to the growing population.
