Crime data is not collected by the Census Bureau. Other resources are discussed below.

Kentucky State Police

The Kentucky State Police (KSP), through its Computer Technologies Section, Records Branch, and Uniform Crime Reporting staff, make available a number of different annual reports dealing with criminal information within the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

The Crime in Kentucky Annual Reports, containing crime activity by county are available from KSP here.


FBI Uniform Crime Reports

Since 1930, participating local, county, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement agencies have voluntarily provided the Nation with a reliable set of crime statistics through the Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. The FBI, which administers the program, periodically releases the crime statistics to the public. Go to the UCR Data tool.

UCR data is reported by individual law enforcement agencies. To analyze crime data for an entire city or county, data users should utilize the Law Enforcement Agency Identifiers Crosswalk.

Local Agencies

Individual police agencies sometimes provide the public with access to crime incidents addressed by their officers.

The Lexington Division of Police have an online crime map that maps and analyzes crime data, alerts Lexington citizens about crimes in their area, and allows the Lexington Division of Police to quickly alert the public about crimes as they occur. Go the the RAIDS Online.

Louisville Metro Police have an online crime mapping tool called Map Crime Now! where the public can view recent incidents and sign up for crime alerts. Louisville Metro Police crime data is also available in tabular form through the Louisville Open Data Portal.
