CBI’s annual 2010 Crime in Colorado

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation today released CBI’s annual 2010 Crime in Colorado report, Director Ronald C. Sloan announced.

The report includes statewide crime statistics reported by Colorado law enforcement agencies and departments. An increase of 0.8 percent in total crimes was reported for 2010, although Colorado’s overall crime rate dropped.

The 2010 report shows a 3.4 percent increase in violent crimes and a 1.5 percent decrease in property crimes, with an overall decrease of 1.0 percent in the crime rate per 100,000 population. The violent crime category includes homicide, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault.

Among the noteworthy changes from the prior year were increases in forcible rape (up 3.4 percent) and a continued decrease in motor vehicle theft. From the peak year of 2005, motor vehicle thefts have dropped from 25,315 to 11,114 in 2010.

From 2009 to 2010 homicides dropped 23.7 percent, from 169 to 129. Colorado’s homicide rate of 2.5 per 100,000 population in 2010 is half the national rate of 5.0 for 2009, according to FBI statistics.

The annual report provides Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Summary statistics on major crime trends, statewide major offense and arrest totals, supplemental reports (arson, hate crime, domestic violence and officers assaulted) and individual law enforcement agency statistics.

Annually, the Crime in Colorado Report honors those officers killed in the line of duty. The report pays tribute to Weld County Sheriff’s Deputy Sam Brownlee who was killed last year.
