Browse Ohio Police Arrest Records Directory

Ohio has a population of 11,570,808, clustered around major municipal centers and the capital, Columbus. The state nickname is The Buckeye State; The Mother of Presidents; Birthplace of Aviation; The Heart of It All. We’re not sure what the signature crime is in Ohio, but they logged 6,681 property crimes arrests in 2014, including 32,230 arrests for thefts, from 4,736 arrests for burglaries to 3,245 arrests for buying, selling or receiving stolen property. Motor vehicle theft accounted for 751 arrests that year, while embezzlement notched 48 arrests and prostitution netted 1,528. State and local police policies as well as the presence of social service safety nets are reflected in the 2,599 arrests for drunkenness, 25 vagrancy arrests and 467 loitering arrests because some states report thousands while others report none (some states do not categorize drunkenness or loitering as crimes). In Ohio, 34,626 were arrested in 2014 for DUI. Violent crimes, including murder and non-negligent manslaughter accounted for 212 arrests. There were 476 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 Ohio was 300 per 1,000 residents in 2012, and the total number of arrests reported by state and local police agencies was 34595 in 2014.
