Crime in Colorado

Did you know that more 13 to 14 year olds were arrested in 2003 than scored “Advanced” on the reading CSAP? or that 58.4 months is the average time offenders spend in Colorado prisons for sexual assault? You can find these statistics and more in a recently released report from the Division of Criminal Justice: “Crime and Justice in Colorado, 2006.” The report has statistics and analysis on crimes committed, the corrections system, parole, demographics of those involved in criminal cases, juveniles, sex offenders, drug use, offenders with mental illness, and recidivism to name a few. The report can be accessed from the Department of Public Safety website, and a print version is available at the Colorado State Publications Library.
