CRIME PLUMMETING IN RURAL PULASKI COUNTY
   A review of crime statistics for the first six months of 2013 reflects crime is on a downward trend for rural Pulaski County, showing a 27% reduction in Part I Crimes (crimes of violence, felony property crimes and burglaries) compared to this time period last year. In addition, arrests have risen for some felony, drug and DUI offenses; several of these arrest categories have increased by almost 50%.
   Pulaski County Sheriff Ronald Long has completed his semi-annual review of the county crime statistics and is pleased with the results that these numbers are reflecting. “When felony and drug arrests are on the rise, and at the same time overall crime is being reduced, this signifies that our criminal justice system here in Pulaski County is working,” states the Sheriff. Long also notes that employees have achieved these results while working almost 3000 hours less than this time last year, due to manpower budget cuts. “When law enforcement, prosecutors and judicial officials are working hard to protect their communities, good things happen and the numbers are proving it,” Long says.
   In addition to these crime statistics, the Pulaski County Sheriff advises that he is required to keep statistics on the ethnicity of each individual who is arrested for a crime or stopped for a traffic violation by Pulaski County Sheriff deputies. Out of 341 total arrests so far this year, 293 of these individuals have been White, 43 Black and the remainder either Asian or listed as “Other.” Sheriff Long also reports that, out of all traffic stops initiated by deputies, 81% of the drivers were White, 12% Black, 4% Hispanic, and the remaining 3% being of other ethnic backgrounds.
   For a complete listing of crime statistics for Pulaski County or other law enforcement agencies throughout Missouri, these can be viewed on the Missouri Department of Public Safety’s web-site, in the Uniform Crime Reporting Program section.
