Crime Publications

Crime in Missouri - A primary source of Missouri crime statistics based on law enforcement agencies' mandatory reporting of crime offenses to the Missouri Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Statistics cover Index Crime offenses and arrests (homicide, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson), other arrests, domestic violence incidents, law enforcement homicides and assaults, and law enforcement employment.

Nature and Extent of Illicit Drug Problem in Missouri - Results of analyses of the prevalence of drug use, societal impact of drug use, and extent of drug industries in Missouri are documented in this report, including characteristics and impact of marijuana, cocaine / crack cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin / opiates, and hallucinogen. Emergency room and treatment data, student surveys, drug task force surveys, public opinion / drug prevalence surveys, criminal laboratory data, court data, and Uniform Crime Reporting data are just some of the sources used for these analyses.

* As of Fiscal Year 2013 the Nature and Extent will no longer be a publication in it's own. It will be included in the Violent Crime Strategy publication found under the JAG Grant Monitoring Publications link.

Domestic Violence in Missouri - Missouri Criminal History Reporting System data are used to examine the extent and nature of domestic violence in Missouri from 1999 to 2010. Analyses were conducted at arrest, prosecution, and court levels to identify any demographic or criminal trends. A reoffending rate was calculated for domestic violence offenders as part of an effort to determine if recidivism is higher in this population than the general criminal population.

Hate Crime in Missouri - Hate crime is defined as a criminal offense committed against persons, property, or society which is motivated, in whole or in part, by offender's bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin.

This report contains detailed information on criminal offenses, victims, offenders, locations, and bias motivation associated with hate crimes throughout the State of Missouri.
