VIDEO: Crime Drops in Idaho as Population Grows


MERIDIAN, Idaho (KTVB) –

. It’s a big selling point for those wanting to make Idaho a home and businesses already here. Idaho continues on a five-year downward trend when it comes to crime across the state. Recently, the 2013 “Crime in Idaho” report was released by the Idaho State Police Bureau of Criminal Identification. Police agencies across the state send their crime reports to the manager of the Bureau of Criminal Identification, Dawn Peck. She and her team spend months analyzing the numbers and then give them to the public each year by July first. The report suggests that crimes against persons: things like murders, rapes and assaults are down 3.7 percent. Crimes against property such as robberies, burglaries, larceny and arson are down 3.9 percent. However, crimes against society: like drugs, weapons and even prostitution have increased by 9.4 percent, but even while that is true, the overall big picture shows crime is on the decline.
