IDAHO — The Idaho State Police Bureau of Criminal Identification has released its annual "Crime in Idaho" report for 2019. The report is a summary of crime statistics gathered from law enforcement agencies across Idaho.
The report includes things like the statewide crime profile, crimes against persons, property, society, the arrest profile, hate crime in Idaho, law enforcement officers killed or assaults, crimes categorized by jurisdiction and other statistics. The Crime in Idaho report has been released on the Interactive Crime Dashboard, which can be found here.
The report allows for the public to look at crime trends for a particular city, county or at the state level. You will be able to run many canned reports and 'ad-hoc' queries of any data elements the Idaho State Police collects on a single reported crime. It allows the public, academics, law enforcement and criminal justice agencies timely report capabilities without having to submit a public records request.
Homicide, human trafficking and burglaries in Idaho are down, while investigators saw an increase in animal cruelty, embezzlement, fraud and drug-related crimes.
