E-mail Print PDF

Crime reached a 17-year low in Hopkins County during the first six months of 2017 compared to last year. Overall, only 71 crimes were recorded in the nine major offense categories, five fewer than the record low of 76 set in 2016, according to Uniform Crime Reporting data provided by Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO).

That’s not to say that’s a full count of all crimes reported in Hopkins County during that period; these number only include criminal homicide, forcible rape, robbery, simple assault, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny theft, vehicle theft and arson cases recorded at HCSO. Drug and alcohol cases, for instance, are recorded differently and not counted in this number.
