Kentucky State Police Annual Report

Kentucky State Police say a serious crime took place every two minutes and 38 seconds in the Commonwealth during 2011.  

The agency’s annual “Crime in Kentucky” report released this month shows almost 300,000 arrests took place last year.  Of those, just over 25,000 were DUIs, while 38,000 arrests were for drug violations.  The Associated Press says due to a change in the way Kentucky compiled the 2011 numbers, the report can’t be compared to previous years.
