Browse Oklahoma Police Arrest Records Directory
Oklahoma has a population of 3,850,568, clustered around major municipal centers and the capital, Oklahoma City. The state nickname is Sooner State; Land of the Red Man; Native America. We’re not sure what the signature crime is in Oklahoma, but they logged 4,673 property crimes arrests in 2014, including 15,985 thefts, from 2,301 burglaries to 2,479 reports of buying, selling or receiving stolen property. Motor vehicle theft accounted for 576 arrests that year, while embezzlement notched 475 arrests and prostitution netted 138. State and local police policies as well as the presence of social service safety nets are reflected in the 16,073 arrests for drunkenness, 683 vagrancy arrests and 998 loitering arrests because some states report thousands while others report none (some states do not categorize drunkenness or loitering as crimes). In Oklahoma, 12,741 were arrested in 2014 for DUI. Violent crimes, including murder and non-negligent manslaughter accounted for 129 arrests. There were 236 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 arrest 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 Oklahoma was 469 per 1,000 residents in 2012, and the total number of arrests reported by state and local police agencies was 17902 in 2014.
