National Conservative will be exploring what data is published by each of the fifty states. This page will serve as a permanent directory of state crime statistics.
State of Alabama, Criminal Justice Information Center. From 1977 – 2016, Alabama published some of the most comprehensive data on state crime in the nation. In 2017, they stripped racial data out of their reports. In 2018, the department was basically dismantled. They went from publishing a comprehensive 125 book of data each year to publishing a simple list of the number of crimes in each city.
The State of Delaware, Statistical Analysis Center, publishes a variety of crime reports.
The Kentucky State Police publish annual reports on crime. However, “homicide offenses” in these reports are roughly double the number of non-negligent “willful murder” homicides reported by the FBI for each year. It is unclear what the Kentucky State Police are counting in this number.
The State of Louisiana, Statistical Analysis Center, publishes crime reports. Appears to be missing data from some parts of the state.
The Maine State Police publish an official list of all homicides in the state for each year.
The State of Minnesota, Bureau of Criminal Apprehensions, publishes reports on crime in the state starting in 2015. This state publishes details on race.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety has archive of crime reports going from 1934 – 2014. Minnesota was among the first in the nation to sub-classify people as Hispanic/Latino. This last from 1981 to 2014. Then, when the Bureau of Criminal Apprehensions took over the reports, they stopped. Since 2015, Minnesota’s crime reports only count Hispanic/Latino as a victim category for “bias crimes.” All Hispanic/Latino suspects are counted as “White.”
The Missouri State Highway Patrol runs an online dashboard with some details on crime.
The State of Mississippi, Department of Public Safety, publishes data. It is extremely incomplete and of little value. Jackson, MS, the largest city, is not even included in the data. Offenders are only broken down by gender, not by race. Mississippi law enforcement agencies also have very low participation when it comes to sending data to the FBI as well. The state has some of the highest crime rates, but is not providing a lot of details on that crime.
The Nevada State Police Records publishes online crime data for the state.
The New York Division of Criminal Justice Services publishes spreadsheets with crime data. You have to download the spreadsheets and view them on your own computer. The only data on race is arrest statistics.
The NYPD publishes extremely comprehensive annual homicide reports. The nicest reports you will find anywhere. They have two different Hispanic categories for offenders. Most police departments have no Hispanic offender category and simply count them as White. Reports are also in the form of spreadsheets that you must download.
The State of North Carolina, Bureau of Investigation, publishes annual reports. The reports are lacking in details and provide no information on race. Data is incomplete. The totals only reflect 92-96% of the state, depending on the year.
The Office of the Attorney General of North Dakota publishes a somewhat comprehensive book on crime data each year. They also publish a separate report on all murders in the state each year. However, all racial date is stripped out of the report. Victims and offenders are only identified by age and gender.
The Oregon State Police operates an interactive dashboard of crime statistics. However, it only shows data starting on January 1st, 2020. One thing of note is they actually have a completely separate offender category for Latinos. In most city, state, and Federal crime data, all Latinos are counted as “White” in offender data, even if there is a separate victim category for “Latino.”
The Office of Criminal Justice Services is supposed to report crime data. They have not updated anything since 2017 and most of the stuff on their website is now dead links.
As far as well can tell, the state of Ohio is no longer publishing details on crime.
The Pennsylvania State Police operates an interactive dashboard of crime statistics. No racial data is given.
The South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division publishes compressive annual crime reports. They include data on race. Even includes a “Hispanic” category for offenders.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation operate a crime statistics interactive dashboard.
The Virginia State Police publishes annual crime reports in pdf format.
The City of Richmond publishes very detailed reports on homicides.
The West Virginia State Police publishes annual reports. However, a new report has not been published since 2019 and the amount of information is very poor.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice has an online dashboard that list homicides per county.
The Milwaukee police department also has an online dashboard.
