Browse Maryland Police Arrest Records Directory
Maryland has a population of 5,928,814, clustered around major municipal centers and the capital, Annapolis. The state nickname is "Old Line State", "Free State", "Little America", "America in Miniature". We’re not sure what the signature crime is in Maryland, but they logged 8,322 property crimes arrests in 2014, including 18,584 arrests for thefts, from 4,624 arrests for burglaries to 170 arrests for buying, selling or receiving stolen property. Motor vehicle theft accounted for 1,112 arrests that year, while embezzlement notched 227 arrests and prostitution netted 882. State and local police policies as well as the presence of social service safety nets are reflected in the 81 arrests for drunkenness, 131 vagrancy arrests and 152 loitering arrests because some states report thousands while others report none (some states do not categorize drunkenness or loitering as crimes). In Maryland, 17,839 were arrested in 2014 for DUI. Violent crimes, including murder and non-negligent manslaughter accounted for 195 arrests. There were 284 rape arrests. There were nearly 100,000 arrests nationwide for violent crimes in these categories reported by the FBI in 2012. Three of the country's largest states routinely report more than 1,000 murder and non-negligent manslaughter arrests each year: California, Texas and Florida. Many other mid-size states, including Michigan, Illinois, Georgia, New York and Pennsylvania often report more than 500 crimes of that type annually – but the highest murder and non-negligent manslaughter rate per 1,000 residents is a dubious title held by some smaller states like Louisiana, with 10.8 and the District of Columbia with 13.9 per 1,000 residents, respectively. The violent crime rate for Maryland was 477 per 1,000 residents in 2012, and the total number of arrests reported by state and local police agencies was 28055 in 2014.
