Crime Statistics

Each year the Colorado Bureau of Investigation publishes a report on their website, Crime in Colorado, with statistics on crime for the past year. The reports are interactive rather than book-form, to make searching for specific stats easier. Each year’s report is archived online so that researchers can go back and compare statistics from year to year. Among the statistics included in these reports are crime trends, arrests, and statistics by type of crime (homicide, theft, arson, etc.)

The Colorado Department of Public Safety’s Office of Research and Statistics also publishes crime statistics on their website. This site illustrates with graphs such information as arrests/crimes based on total population; county and statewide crime rates; arrest rates; and incarceration statistics. Criminal justice agencies such as law enforcement agencies and district attorneys can also obtain up-to-date statistics by contacting the CBI’s Colorado Crime Information Center.
