The Colorado Department of Public Safety recently debuted a new crime statistics database. You can use the site to search statewide or by jurisdiction; year, back to 2008; and type of crime. For example, when you search property crimes, you get charts on location; type of weapon/force; injuries and victim types; time of day/day of week; value of property; and more. For violent crimes, data includes victims’ age, sex, and race; type of weapon/force; relationship of offender to victim; location; etc. DUI and drug data includes arrestee age; arrests by month; drug seizures by drug type; and type of criminal activity.
