Browse Texas Police Arrest Records Directory
The The Lone Star State, Texas, with its 26,448,193 residents, keeps police busy, with 106476 arrests in 2014. Among those arrests were 4,891 for prostitution, 135,683 for drug abuse violations, 70,482 for DUI and 710 for murder and non-negligent manslaughter. How does it compare to national statistics? There were nearly 100,000 arrests nationwide for violent crimes in these categories reported by the FBI in 2012, and three large states: California, Texas and Florida each log as many as 1,000 arrests for murder and non-negligent manslaughter each year while those with the lowest violent crime rates are small states like South Dakota, Wyoming, Maine, Hawaii and Vermont, each with fewer than 24 such arrests in 2012. That's similar to non-rape sex crime arrests, which were TABLE 69 SEX CRIMES in Texas and in the thousands in big states like California, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Wisconsin (but California has many more than most with over 9,700 sex crime arrests in 2014). In Texas property crimes accounted for 29,135 arrests in 2014, including 103,547 thefts, 14,273 burglaries and 1,079 reports of buying, selling or receiving stolen property. The overall violent crime rate in 2012 was 409 per 1,000 residents in Texas, according to the FBI.
