BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho law enforcement officials say the state’s overall crime rate declined slightly for the second year in a row but the number of drug violations and assaults on police officers climbed in 2013.

According to the Idaho State Police’s annual crime report, the number of reported hate crimes decreased more than 11 percent compared to 2012. The ISP report is a compilation of reports from law enforcement agencies across the state.

Nearly 260 officers reported being assaulted — an increase of more than 10 percent— while crimes against society like gambling offenses and drug sales were up almost 9 percent overall. The biggest drop, however, was hate crimes. There were 32 reported hate crimes in Idaho last year compared to 36 in 2012.
