2012: One of the lowest years for arrests in recent history?

Postby junglesmacks » Tue Sep 11, 2012 12:09 pm

Seems suspiciously low to me.. and completely incorrect.

Only 13 citations issued? We've already heard of at least half that right here on eplaya. I know personally one of the "four" warrant arrests.

This can't be right..

Just because you weren't arrested for your many incidences of jaywalking, trespassing and reckless driving doesn't mean a thing!

No that was last year. This year, probably the highest.

The different LEOs report separately.

BLM: http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-new ... in-blm-cap
Washoe: http://www.mynews4.com/news/local/story ... t-released

These are from a few sources and not all compiled the same way:
2012 (230 citations, 22 arrests, 441 warnings)
2011 (3 arrests, 375 total citations)
2010 (293 total citations; 8 total arrests)
2009 (287 total citations; 9 total arrests)
2008 (190 substance citations, 10 substance arrests)
2007 (331 citations 2 substance arrests)
2006 (155 citations)
