Idaho’s 2012 Crime Rate Declined

Idaho’s crime rates slipped 1.5% in 2012, according to the Idaho State Police’s annual “Crime In Idaho” report that was released yesterday.

Idaho has the second-lowest crime rate in the entire West, following Utah, which has the lowest crime rate.

I found it interesting that Idaho experienced only 27 murders statewide during 2012.

From what I’ve read in the national news, that’s about equal to a typical weekend in Chicago!
