  • Crime in Kentucky

    For decades now, Kentucky State Police has annually compiled a comprehensive look at crime across the commonwealth, giving the public and law enforcement alike a much clearer picture of the challenges we face.
    The reports come out each summer and pull together data from local and state agencies, highlighting both short- and long-term trends. A comparison of 2014 with 1995, for example, shows that DUIs have dropped significantly – from 33,000 then to 22,500 last year – but that drug offenses have sky-rocketed, growing from less than 18,000 to more than 58,000.
