									      Sourcebook of
Criminal Justice Statistics
  in the Commonwealth




             2006


    Compiled by the Justice & Safety Center at
          Eastern Kentucky University
                 on behalf of the
    Kentucky Justice & Public Safety Cabinet
                Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics in the Commonwealth


                                              Foreword
Dear Policymaker:

It is with great pride that the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet releases the 2006 edition of the
Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics in the Commonwealth. As the second largest agency in state
government, the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet continuously works to improve public safety and the
quality of life for the citizens of Kentucky. By providing comprehensive information from all components of
the criminal justice system, the Sourcebook continues to encourage data-driven decision-making to aid
effective criminal justice policy development in the 21st century. The report reflects a unique partnership
among criminal justice agencies whose collaborative efforts permit the presentation of a broad overview
of the system. As the data infrastructure in Kentucky’s criminal justice system continues to improve, we
believe the Sourcebook serves as an even more effective tool for meeting critical planning needs and
addressing statewide criminal justice policy issues.

In addition to valuable information on crime, arrest, prosecution, correction, and juvenile justice system
trends, the fifth edition of the Sourcebook highlights selected crime categories that are currently of
interest in the criminal justice system today. These special topics include drug related offenses with a
particular focus on methamphetamines and prescription drugs, driving under the influence (DUI) offenses,
sex offenses, and school safety. Shared information across agencies presented here allows for a greater
understanding of how these crimes are affecting the state.
The following report is organized in a manner that follows traditional movement across the system, from
arrest to prosecution to corrections, and should thus be viewed as a systemic integration of data-sharing
and analyses. I encourage you to use this report as a convenient and accessible resource and to contact
the Cabinet if you have questions or need further information. It is my goal, and that of the Cabinet, for
the 2006 Sourcebook to serve as a vital resource for policymakers, state officials, and the citizens of
Kentucky. On behalf of the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, I would like to express
appreciation to the criminal justice agency personnel and faculty who contributed time and energy to
enable the publication of the 2006 edition of the Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics in the
Commonwealth.

             Limitations of Current Data and Information Systems

As you review the information contained in this Sourcebook, it is important to keep in mind that data have
been drawn from a number of state level criminal justice computer systems in an attempt to provide a
snapshot of crime trends in the Commonwealth. A detailed description of the existing systems can be
found in Appendix A. Until these systems are fully integrated into a statewide Unified Criminal Justice
Information System, there will remain limitations in the data available for analysis. These and other
limitations are delineated below:

    •   Data collection systems of criminal justice agencies were established independently for in-house
        data management purposes and not for planning or policy evaluation.

    •   There are currently no standardized formats for defining data elements or counting criminal
        justice events. Agencies vary according to what is being counted (e.g. charges, cases, or
        individuals).

    •   In an attempt to further unify the data, all data were requested to be reported on a calendar year
        basis for the 2005 and 2006 editions of the Sourcebook, with the exception of fiscal data. This
        particular change in the reporting parameters may affect the user’s ability to compare data across
        previous editions of the sourcebook.

    •   Several agencies have provided updated data for years prior to 2006. As a result, the data in the
        2006 Sourcebook may be different than that which is found in earlier editions of the Sourcebook.
        Where possible, the updated data has been included in order to provide the most accurate data
        available.

    •   As a result of the variation across agencies, it is currently not possible to publish a fully integrated
        criminal justice system report or to perform systemic trend analyses. This report is intended to
        provide individual snapshots of the key components of the justice system (law enforcement,
        courts, corrections, prosecution, and defense), and to draw general conclusions regarding system
        trends where possible.

    •   During 2006, the U.S. Department of Justice estimates that 48.9% of all violent crime and 37.7%
        of all property crime was reported to the police. In order to provide a better picture of the actual
        levels of victimization that are occurring within the Commonwealth, the Justice and Public Safety
        Cabinet will conduct a crime victimization study in conjunction with the Statistical Analysis Center
        in the spring of 2008. This study will help to provide a better picture of the actual levels of
        victimization that are occurring within the Commonwealth.

    •   Variations in definitions may result in considerable inconsistencies in numbers across agencies.
        The data may be used to determine whether trends are consistent across agencies, however,
        individual numbers may differ significantly. This report is expected to improve over time as
        reporting practices become more consistent.

    •   Kentucky currently uses the FBI’s Summary Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR) to collect
        data. The UCR is a nationwide, cooperative statistical effort of more than 17,000 city, county, and
        state law enforcement agencies voluntarily reporting data on crimes brought to their attention.
        The UCR includes information on Part I offenses, the violent crimes of murder and non-negligent
        manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault and the property crimes of burglary,
        larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson. In response to the need for improved statistics, the
        UCR program has been redesigned into the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS).
        NIBRS captures up to 56 data elements via six types of data segments: administrative, offense,


                                                     viii
            Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics in the Commonwealth

    victim, property, offender, and arrestee. As more contributing law enforcement agencies become
    educated about the rich data available through incident-based reporting and as resources permit,
    more agencies are implementing the NIBRS. Currently, Kentucky is among 31 state programs
    representing approximately 37 percent of reporting agencies that are certified for NIBRS
    participation. Kentucky is in the transition phase from Summary UCR to NIBRS. NIBRS reporting
    is already taking place in selected law enforcement agencies. As more agencies become
    technologically able to submit incident based information, Kentucky crime data will become more
    complete, thus greatly enhancing query capabilities.

•   Due to severe weather-related computer problems experienced in 1996, Kentucky State Police
    (KSP) was unable to produce arrest information for the 1996 through 2001 Crime in Kentucky
    publications. The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) cooperated with the agency by
    providing arrest data from their court records. This should be taken into consideration when
    working with KSP arrest data from 1996 through 2001. Starting in 2002, the arrest data are
    compiled strictly from the citations and summary reports submitted to KSP, thus providing more
    accurate crime statistics.

•   In an effort to improve the quality of the Kentucky State Police’s annual Crime in Kentucky
    reports, several adaptations were made in 1998 to data reporting that have continued through
    2006. These changes may affect the ability to compare data published in the 1998 through 2006
    reports.

•   The following disclaimer has been issued by the Administrative Office of the Courts and applies to
    all data within the Sourcebook that is attributed to that agency: “Information received from
    COURTNET is subject to change(s), reprogramming, modification(s) of format and availability at
    the direction of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), and may not at any particular
    moment reflect the true status of court cases due to ordinary limitation(s), delay(s) or error(s) in
    the system’s operation. The AOC disclaims any warranties as to the validity of the information
    obtained from COURTNET. The recipient is solely responsible for verifying information received

                                       Executive Summary

As part of its role in statewide criminal justice planning, the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet is
charged with the dissemination of information on criminal justice issues and crime trends. This report
reflects the Cabinet’s fifth initiative to provide state officials with comprehensive information from all
components of the criminal justice system to permit improved analysis of criminal justice issues and to
help guide decision-making and promote effective policy development.

In the pages that follow, leaders will find a description of Kentucky’s changing demographic population;
data from agencies providing services to victims; data on Part I offenses from the perspective of the
courts, corrections, and juvenile justice system; highlights on selected crime categories such as drug
offenses, sex offenses, and school safety; and key criminal justice cost information.


                        Kentucky’s Changing Demographic Realities

    •   In 2006, the state’s population was 4,206,074, 51% females and 49% males. The median age
        was 38.7 years. Approximately 24% of the population were under 18 and 13% were older than
        65. It is predicted that by 2025, Kentucky will have the 12th highest proportion of seniors in the
        U.S.

    •   In 2006, Kentucky's 5.7% unemployment rate ranked the state 46th in the nation, with a rate 1.1%
        higher than the nation average of 4.6%.

    •   The forecast for Kentucky’s economy is moderate growth. In 2006, Kentucky’s Gross State
        Product (GSP) increased to a record $146 billion, an increase of $34 billion since 2000.
        Kentucky’s average per capita personal income in 2006 was $29,719, earning the state a rank of
        43rd in the U.S. The national average was $36,629.

    •   According to estimates released in January 2008 by the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of
        Kentuckians living in poverty in 2006 rose to approximately 690,000 persons, or 16.8% of the
        total population. This is a 2% increase in the poverty rate from 2005, and 3.6% higher than the
        national estimate. Nationwide, the number of individuals in poverty also grew, up from 37,039,804
        in 2004 to 38,231,474 in 2005. Among the states, New Hampshire had the lowest estimated
        poverty rate at 7.6%, Mississippi the highest at 20.6%. Kentucky had the sixth highest poverty
        rate in the nation.

    counties in the state, had the highest Part I offense rates in 2006. Green, Hickman, and Bracken
    counties had the lowest Part I offense rates. Of cities with a population greater than 10,000,
    Newport, Paducah, and Hopkinsville had the highest Part I offense rate in 2006.



                                        Arrest Trends

•   The Kentucky State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Uniform Crime Reports
    provided data on arrests. Between 2004 and 2006, the adult arrest rate for all Part I offenses
    increased 29.5%. In 2006, the arrest rate in Kentucky was higher than national arrest rates for
    every Part I offense with the exception of arrests for aggravated assault and auto theft. In fact,
    arrest rates for murder, burglary, and arson in Kentucky were more than twice the national arrest
    rate.

•   In terms of raw numbers, the majority of suspects arrested in 2006 were white. However, while
    whites comprised over 90% of Kentucky’s population in 2006, only 75% of arrested suspects
    were white. Compared to the proportion of the population which they comprise, non-whites are
    over-represented in arrests where the race of the suspect is known. In 2006, 31% of arrestees
    were women. The offense with the largest percentage of women arrested was larceny-theft; 42%
    of arrestees were women.



                                    Bail Release Trends

•   The Administrative Office of the Courts provided data on bail release trends in the state of
    Kentucky. In 2006, 67.8% of all Part I offense cases resulted in no bail type, the most common
    type of bail release. The second most common type of bail release was cash (10.4%) followed by

    to 132,263 in 2006. There was little variation in the distribution of case dispositions from 2002
    through 2006 for all Part I offenses with the exception of rape. After declining from 21% in 2002 to
    16% in 2005, the percent of rape case convictions increased to a five year high of 23% in 2006.

•   Between 2002 and 2006, an average of 45% of Part I offense cases resulted in conviction and an
    average of 30% of Part I offense cases resulted in an acquittal or dismissal.

    Court ranged from a high of 121,984 in the 30th Judicial District (Jefferson County) to a low of
    1,729 in the 59th Judicial District (Ballard and Carlisle Counties).

•   Figures provided by the Department of Public Advocacy indicate that in 2006, 99% (144,408
    cases) of the agency’s caseload was handled by the Trial Division. Of these cases, 77% were
    heard in District Court. The workload of the Department of Public Advocacy Field Offices has
    increased 36% from FY 2002 (101,311 cases) to FY 2006 (137,923 cases).



                           Appellate Court Caseload Trends

•   According to the Administrative Office of the Courts, the number of cases disposed in the Court of
    Appeals declined each year from 2002 to 2005 and increased slightly in 2006. The majority of
    cases in the Court of Appeals are criminal appeals and civil appeals. From 2002 to 2006, over
    50% of the cases disposed in the Court of Appeals have consistently been civil appeals.

•   The number of cases disposed in the Supreme Court increased each year from 2002 to 2005 and
    decreased slightly in 2006. In 2006, almost 90% of cases disposed in the Supreme Court were
    either motions for discretionary review or direct appeals/original actions.


                           Commitment and Release Trends

•   The Department of Corrections reports that the average sentence for property and violent
    offenses remained relatively stable between 2001 and 2004, increased in 2005, and decreased in
    2006. Between 2002 and 2006, the most significant increase in the average sentence for a Part I
    offense was for rape (74%). The second highest increase was for larceny-theft (61%) followed by
    aggravated assault (57%). Between 2005 and 2006, the number of new commitments decreased


                                                xii
               Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics in the Commonwealth
       for all Part I offenses. The offense with the largest percent decrease in new commitments
       between 2005 and 2006 was rape.

   •   According to the Kentucky Parole Board, the percentage of inmates deferred increased between

       juvenile arrest rate for rape showed the most significant decrease (52.1%) compared to all other
       Part I offenses during this period. In 2006, compared to national juvenile arrest rates for Part I
       offenses, Kentucky’s juvenile arrest rates were lower for aggravated assault, robbery,
       larceny/theft, and auto theft but higher for murder, rape, burglary, and arson. For all Part I
       offenses combined, Kentucky’s juvenile arrest rate was just .03% higher than the national juvenile
       arrest rate in 2006.

   •   The Department of Juvenile Justice reported that the total number of juveniles adjudicated for
       Part I offenses rose between 2002 and 2003 and then declined each consecutive year thereafter.
       In 2006, the average length of stay for juveniles adjudicated for murder (471 days) was higher
       than the average length of stay for any other Part I offense. The shortest average length of stay
       was for juveniles adjudicated for robbery (228 days). After remaining relatively stable between
       2003 and 2005, the total number of youth served by the juvenile justice system increased to
       2,977 in 2006. From 2002 through 2006, the majority of youth served by the juvenile justice
       system were placed in the home under the supervision of a parent or guardian.

       the lowest DUI arrest rates in the state, averaging 2.4 arrests per 1,000 population per county.

   •   The Administrative Office of the Courts reports that between 2002 and 2006, the DUI caseload in
       Magoffin County more than doubled, making it the county with the largest percent increase over
       this five year period. With only 12 cases in 2006, Robertson County had the fewest DUI cases
       compared to any other county. Jefferson County had the most DUI cases with a total of 4,741

Section I: Kentucky’s Changing
                           Demographic Realities
Population Realities
The United States is in the midst of a major demographic revolution. Throughout history, the division of
the population by age has always resembled a pyramid, where each younger generation was larger in
number, better educated, and more competitive than the previous generation. As the Baby Boomer
generation advances in age, this trend is changing. The Baby Boomer generation represents the 76
million Americans born between 1946 and 1964. As the single largest sustained population growth cohort
in the U.S., it is no surprise that the aging of such a large number of people would garner the attention of
policymakers across the country. As Baby Boomers age and improved healthcare increases life
expectancies, it is clear that this demographic revolution has real long term implications for public policy.
The aging population will influence everything from the economy to societal assumptions about aging.
This change in demographics will shape future policy. For example, we are likely to see improved public
health care coverage, better regulation of aging citizen’s care and benefits, the development of more
long-term care facilities, and provisions to maintain economic security for the retired population.

Kentucky’s demographic reality mirrors that of the nation. In 2006, the state’s population was 4,206,074,
51% females and 49% males. The median age was 38.7 years. Approximately 24% of the population
were under 18 and 13% were older than 65. In 2000, Kentucky ranked 27th in the nation for its proportion
of residents age 65 and over. It is predicted that by 2025, Kentucky will have the 12th highest proportion of
seniors in the U.S.

It is important to acknowledge that Kentucky’s changing demographic realities have an impact on the
criminal justice system. As the population ages and the number of mature and aging adults outweighs the
number of teens and young adults, changes in the criminal justice system are expected. The percentage
of the population most likely to commit crimes will likely be smaller than the aging population, therefore
crime may potentially decline. If the population of inmates in jails and prisons reflects the transformation
of the demographic profile of the state and nation, there may be an increase in medical expenditures in
jails and prisons as a growing portion of their population will be older.

Economic Realities
The forecast for Kentucky’s economy is moderate growth. In 2006, Kentucky’s Gross State Product
(GSP) increased to a record $146 billion, an increase of $34 billion since 2000. The potential for
economic growth continues to improve as Kentucky develops its ability to draw in new industry.
Manufacturing continues to be the state’s largest industrial sector; however, the percentage of Kentucky’s
economy attributed to this sector has declined over the past few years. While manufacturing accounted
for 27.8% of Kentucky’s GSP in 1997, by 2004, this percentage had fallen to 18.7%.

Kentucky’s exports increased significantly during 2006, further securing the state’s influence in the global
economy. Kentucky secured its position as the 18th highest exporter of goods in 2006, exporting $17.2
billion of goods. Per capita, the state ranked 8th in the exportation of goods. Manufactured goods
accounted for the majority of Kentucky’s exports (97.3%). Among Kentucky’s top ten exports, livestock
was the only non-manufacturing industry. Kentucky ranks first in the nation in both livestock exports and
equine/pure breeding animal exports.




                                                     1
                    Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics in the Commonwealth

In 2006, the manufacturing industry employed 260,923 workers with an average annual income of
$36,722. The construction industry employed 83,517 workers with an average annual income of $36,174.
Finally, with an average annual income of $38,704, establishments in the mining industry employed
22,447 workers in Kentucky. Kentucky’s average per capita personal income in 2006 was $29,719,
earning the state a rank of 43rd in the U.S. The national average was $36,629.

Today, most available jobs require education and/or training beyond high school. Education is highly
valued in a knowledge economy and it is this awareness that has fueled Kentucky to prioritize the pursuit
of higher education. Recent initiatives to promote education are paying off and the number of post-
secondary degrees awarded in Kentucky has risen considerably. Despite this progress, in 2006, the
percentage of Kentuckians age 25 and older with a bachelor’s degree or higher (20.2%) was still well
below the national average (28.0%). In 2005, the percentage of adults over the age of 25 with a high
school education or higher was 79.9%, which ranked the state 49th in the nation.

After reaching an exceptional low in 2000, Kentucky’s unemployment rate began to rise, peaking in July
of 2003 at 6.5%. In 2006, Kentucky's 5.7% unemployment rate ranked the state 46th in the nation, with a
rate 1.1% higher than the nation average of 4.6%.

According to estimates released in January 2008 by the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of Kentuckians
living in poverty in 2006 rose to approximately 690,000 persons, or 16.8% of the total population. This is a
2% increase in the poverty rate from 2005, and 3.6% higher than the national estimate. Nationwide, the
number of individuals in poverty also grew, up from 37,039,804 in 2004 to 38,231,474 in 2005. Among the
states, New Hampshire had the lowest estimated poverty rate at 7.6%, Mississippi the highest at
20.6%. Kentucky had the sixth highest poverty rate in the nation.

Geographic Realities
Kentucky ranks 36th in land area among the U.S. states with 39,728 sq mi. With 84,000 farms, the state is
tied for 4th in the nation with Tennessee according to the total number of farms per state. The state
experienced significant population growth during the 1990’s in the state’s metropolitan areas, the
metropolitan fringe, and along the interstate corridors. Population shifts also occurred as a result of
migration both into and out of the state.

Migration is currently the key indicator of population growth rates in Kentucky. During the period from
2000-2005 population growth from domestic migration (44,188 persons) was greater than from
international migration (30,889 persons). In terms of domestic migration, out-migration of persons with a
college education and persons in professional or highly technical jobs was greater than in-migration of
similarly classified persons. Even though non-whites still make up a fairly small portion of Kentucky’s
population, migration has certainly accelerated the growth of the minority populations. Between 2000 and
2005, the state’s Hispanic population grew 35%.

It is important for policymakers to be aware of both the positive and negative trends that affect the state.
Kentucky’s changing demographic realities require us to understand and address their impact on the
criminal justice system. As readers analyze the following criminal justice statistics, it is useful to consider
them within the context of the demographic realities of the state.

Section II: Victim Services
Kentucky has established many successful programs to provide services and aid to victims of crime.
Providing services to victims of crime is an important element of the criminal justice system. Data for this
section were provided by V.I.N.E., the Crime Victims Compensation Board, the Cabinet for Health and
Family Services, and the Kentucky Parole Board.

                                                 V.I.N.E.
The Office of Victim Services is the arm of the Department of Corrections that provides victims with an
automatic notification system to alert them about a change in the custody status of their offender. The
system is known as Victim Information and Notification Everyday (V.I.N.E.).

The nation’s first automated victim notification system was created in Jefferson County, Kentucky, in
December 1994. Like many progressive acts, a tragedy was the impetus for the establishment of the
V.I.N.E. system. In 1993, Mary Byron was murdered by her estranged boyfriend after he was released
from the Jefferson County Jail. Byron was not notified of his release. Byron’s parents, Pat and John
Byron, led a crusade to ensure that their daughter’s death would not be in vain. As a result of their efforts,
software engineers developed the V.I.N.E. system and implemented it at the Jefferson County Jail. In
1996, Kentucky again led the way, becoming the first state in the nation to provide victim notification on a
statewide basis. Today, more than 2,100 communities nationwide have implemented the V.I.N.E.
system. More than two-thirds of the states have established statewide notification through V.I.N.E. The
federal government also offers a victim notification service. Nationally, V.I.N.E. generates approximately
700,000 notification calls each month.

The V.I.N.E. system receives booking and release data from all county jails and Department of
Corrections institutions. Victims can obtain information about an offender’s location, custody status,
sentence expiration date, and scheduled parole hearing date. The victim can also register to be notified
of changes in an offender’s custody status. Information can be obtained by calling a toll free number, by
calling the Office of Victim Services, via email, or via the Internet through VINELink. The service is
available 24 hours a day. Whenever possible the system provides notification of an offender’s release 72
hours prior to the release. In order to ensure that victims receive notification in a timely manner, V.I.N.E.
will call the registered telephone number every 30 minutes during a 24 hour time period or until the call is
acknowledged by the registered person.

The following information was obtained from the Office of Victim Services in the Department of
Corrections:

    •   In 2006, there was little variation in the number of victims searching for offenders by telephone or
        via the internet through VINELink.

    •   More notifications were issued by V.I.N.E. in June (with 49,579 calls) than in any other month.
        November had the lowest number of notification calls (24,047).

    •   New V.I.N.E. registrations were equally likely to be made by telephone or through the Internet via
        VINELink. Victims were least likely to register by calling a VINEWatch operator.

                         Crime Victims Compensation Board
Legislation establishing the Crime Victims Compensation Board (CVCB) was enacted in 1974. The office
opened in 1978 with the purpose of compensating victims for whom violent crime has resulted in financial
hardship due to physical and psychological injury or death. Applicants may receive awards of up to
$25,000 for medical services, hospital expenses, funeral expenses, counseling, loss of wages, and/or
benefits for the dependents of a victim who is deceased. The board operates under Kentucky Revised
Statute (KRS) 346 and Kentucky Administrative Regulations (KAR) Title 107. The role of the board is to
determine eligibility and amount of reimbursement to crime victims.

The following information was received from the Crime Victims Compensation Board.

    •   The CVCB granted awards to 1,408 applicants in fiscal year 2006, resulting in $983,493.64 being
        distributed to victims of violent crime.

    •   Awards were most commonly made for health-related expenses; the least common need for
        which an award was granted was attorney fees.

                                   Other Victim Services
Both the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) and the Kentucky Parole Board
provide services to victims. CHFS houses several programs that serve victims of crime including rape
crisis centers, domestic violence shelters, and children’s advocacy centers. The data provided by CHFS
detail the types of services provided through these programs and the number of victims served. The
Kentucky Parole Board provided the number of victim hearings held each month in 2006.

   •   In FY 2006, Kentucky’s rape crisis centers provided services to 5,575 victims. That same year,
       the center provided education services to 185,062 participants. The centers logged 193,090
       volunteer hours.

   •   Domestic violence shelters in the Commonwealth served 4,209 residents in FY 2006. Domestic
       violence shelters served an additional 23,453 non-residential clients.

   •   Children’s advocacy centers served 4,179 child victims. The centers provided 1,704 medical
       exams and 2,013 forensic interviews.

   •   In 2006, the Kentucky Parole Board conducted 217 victim hearings.

Section III: Reported Crime Trends
In reviewing data on crime trends, it is important to note the type of data being presented along with the
inherent limitations of that data. For example, although law enforcement agencies collect and maintain
information on both arrests and offenses reported to the police, researchers generally agree that reported
offenses provide a better measure of crime since these reports usually occur closer in time to the actual
incidents. While arrests also provide a measure of law enforcement activity, arrests may not be made in
all cases and arrests may also reflect specialized enforcement efforts rather than an actual increase in
the incidence of crime. Information on Part I offense trends are provided in the following section. The data
on Part I offenses are presented for calendar years 2004-2006, as reported to the Kentucky State Police.

    •   The Part I offense rate rose 2.0% between 2004 and 2006.

    •   The violent offense rate rose each consecutive year between 2004 and 2006. Though there was
        no change in the property offense rate between 2004 and 2005, the property offense rate rose
        slightly in 2006.

    •   Between 2005 and 2006, the offense rate declined for murder, rape, robbery, and arson. During
        this same period, the offense rate rose for aggravated assault, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor
        vehicle theft.

    •   After increasing 44.1% between 2004 and 2005, the offense rate for arson declined 6.4% in 2006.

    •   The offense rate for murder decreased 20.7% between 2004 and 2006, the most significant
        decrease in the offense rate for a Part I offense during this period.

    •   In 2006, with the exception of Virginia, Kentucky had the lowest Part I offense rate among the
        surrounding states of Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, and West Virginia.

    •   Fayette and Jefferson counties, the largest urban counties in the state, had the highest Part I
        offense rates in 2006. Green, Hickman, and Bracken counties had the lowest Part I offense rates.

    •   Of cities with a population greater than 10,000, Newport, Paducah, and Hopkinsville had the
        highest Part I offense rate in 2006.

Section IV: Arrest Trends
This section presents information on arrest trends in the Commonwealth as compiled by the Kentucky
State Police.

   •   The adult arrest rate for all Part I offenses increased 29.5% between 2004 and 2006.

   •   In 2006, the arrest rate in Kentucky was higher than national arrest rates for every Part I offense
       with the exception of arrests for aggravated assault and auto theft. In fact, arrest rates for murder,
       burglary, and arson in Kentucky were more than twice the national average.

   •   In terms of raw numbers, the majority of suspects arrested in 2006 were white. However, while
       whites comprised over 90% of Kentucky’s population in 2006, only 75% of arrested suspects
       were white. Compared to the proportion of the population which they comprise, non-whites are
       over-represented in arrests where the race of the suspect is known.

   •   In 2006, 50.3% of arrests for robbery, 30.9% of arrests for aggravated assault, and 25.7% of

Section VI: Court Disposition and
                            Sentencing Trends

This section presents information from the Administrative Office of the Courts on case dispositions and
sentencing trends for Part I offenses.

    •   The total number of cases for Part I offenses decreased from 139,774 cases in 2005 to 132,263
        in 2006.

    •   There was little variation in the distribution of case dispositions from 2002 through 2006 for all
        Part I offenses with the exception of rape.

    •   After declining from 21% in 2002 to 16% in 2005, the percent of rape case convictions increased
        to a five year high of 23% in 2006.

    •   Between 2002 and 2006, an average of 45% of Part I offense cases resulted in conviction and an
        average of 30% of Part I offense cases resulted in an acquittal or dismissal.

    •   After increasing each consecutive year between 2002 and 2005, the total number of cases for
        murder and rape decreased in 2006.

    •   Prison, life, or 25 years without parole was the most common sentence for all Part I offenses with
        the exception of larceny/theft. The majority of larceny/theft offenders were sentenced to jail.

    •   In 2006, for all Part I offenses, 68.5% of offenders were sentenced to jail, 16.8% of offenders
        were sentenced to prison, life, or 25 years without parole, and 10.2% were granted state or local
        probation. However, when larceny/theft offenders are excluded, 68.4% of offenders were
        sentenced to prison, life, or 25 years without parole, and 20.7% were granted state or local
        probation, and 9.8% were sentenced to jail.

    •   The only offense category in which the sentence of death was imposed was
        murder/manslaughter. After declining from 3.6% of cases in 2004 to 0.5% of cases in 2005, the
        percentage of murder/manslaughter cases resulting in the sentence of death rose to 3.8% in
        2006.

Section VII: Trial Court Caseload Trends
In this section, Circuit and District Court case data from the Administrative Office of the Courts and data
from the Department of Public Advocacy are presented.

    •   The number of cases disposed in Circuit Court varies greatly by circuit. In 2006, the number of
        cases disposed ranged from a high of 4,697 in the 30th Judicial Circuit (Jefferson County) to a low
        of 183 in the 36th Judicial Circuit (Knott and Magoffin Counties).

    •   With a 141% increase between 2003 and 2006, the 33rd Judicial Circuit (Perry County) had the
        largest percent increase in cases disposed in Circuit Court.

    •   The number of cases disposed in District Court varies greatly by district. In 2006, the number of
        cases disposed ranged from a high of 121,984 in the 30th Judicial District (Jefferson County) to a
        low of 1,729 in the 59th Judicial District (Ballard and Carlisle Counties).

    •   With a 27% increase between 2003 and 2006, the 7th Judicial District (Logan and Todd Counties)
        had the largest percent increase in cases disposed in District Court.

    •   Statewide, the number of appeals disposed in Circuit Court decreased each year between 2003
        and 2006. After increasing each year between 2002 and 2004, the number of felony cases
        disposed in Circuit Court decreased each year between 2004 and 2006.

    •   Statewide, the number of criminal cases disposed in District Court remained relatively stable with
        the exception of domestic violence cases which decreased significantly (42%) between 2002 and
        2006.

    •   In 2006, 99% (144,408 cases) of the Department of Public Advocacy’s caseload was handled by
        the Trial Division. Of these cases, 77% were heard in District Court.

    •   The workload of the Department of Public Advocacy Field Offices has increased 36% from FY
        2002 (101,311 cases) to FY 2006 (137,923 cases).

       increased slightly in 2006.

   •   From 2002 to 2006, over 50% of the cases disposed in the Court of Appeals have consistently
       been civil appeals.

   •   The number of cases disposed in the Supreme Court increased each year from 2002 to 2005 and
       decreased slightly in 2006.

   •   In 2006, almost 90% of cases disposed in the Supreme Court were either motions for
       discretionary review or direct appeals/original actions.

Section IX: Commitment and Release Trends
This section presents information from the Department of Corrections (DOC) on commitments, sentences,
and releases for Part I offenses, and from the Parole Board on hearings, paroles, deferrals, and serve-outs.

    •   The average sentence for property and violent offenses remained relatively stable between 2001
        and 2004, increased in 2005, and decreased in 2006.

    •   Between 2002 and 2006, the most significant increase in the average sentence for a Part I offense
        was for rape (74%). The second highest increase was for larceny-theft (61%) followed by
        aggravated assault (57%).

    •   Between 2005 and 2006, the number of new commitments decreased for all Part I offenses.

    •   The offense with the largest percent decrease in new commitments between 2005 and 2006 was
        rape.

    •   After increasing each year between 2003 and 2005, the number of rape offenders serving out their
        sentences decreased in 2006.

    •   After remaining relatively stable between 2002 and 2004 and increasing dramatically in 2005, the
        number of new commitments for robbery declined marginally in 2006. The number of serve-outs
        and shock probations for robbery remained relatively stable from 2002 to 2006. The number of
        paroled robbery offenders fell to a five year low in 2006.

    •   After increasing each year between 2002 and 2005, the number of aggravated assault offenders
        serving out their sentence decreased in 2006.

    •   After increasing between 2003 and 2005, the number of larceny/theft offenders serving out their
        sentences decreased 10% between 2005 and 2006.

    •   The number of new commitments, paroles, and serve-outs for arson increased between 2004 and
        2005 but declined in 2006. Most significant was the 26% decrease in serve-outs between 2005 and
        2006.

    •   The percentage of inmates deferred increased between 2003 and 2006. The percentage of inmates
        serving out their sentence increased between 2003 and 2004 but decreased in both 2005 and
        2006.

Section X: Juvenile Justice System Trends
This section presents information on juvenile offenders served by the juvenile justice system. Data are
presented from the Kentucky State Police, Department of Juvenile Justice, and the Administrative Office of
the Courts’ Court Designated Worker Program. It is important to note that the information from the
Department of Juvenile Justice reflects the number of adjudicated youth served (not placed) by the
Department. These youth may have been served in more than one program type during this period.

   •    Increasing from 71.9 arrests per 100,000 juveniles in 2004 to 108.4 arrests per 100,000 juveniles in
        2006, the juvenile arrest rate for burglary showed the most significant increase (50.6%) compared
        to all other Part I offenses during this period.

   •    Falling from 7.9 arrests per 100,000 juveniles in 2004 to 3.8 arrests per 100,000 juveniles in 2006,
        the juvenile arrest rate for rape showed the most significant decrease (-52.1%) compared to all
        other Part I offenses during this period.

   •    Between 2005 and 2006, the juvenile arrest rate decreased for murder, rape, aggravated assault,
        robbery, and auto theft.

   •    In 2006, compared to national juvenile arrest rates for Part I offenses, Kentucky’s juvenile arrest
        rates were lower for aggravated assault, robbery, larceny/theft, and auto theft but higher for murder,
        rape, burglary, and arson.

   •    For all Part I offenses combined, Kentucky’s juvenile arrest rate was just .03% higher than the
        national juvenile arrest rate in 2006.

    •   The total number of juveniles adjudicated for Part I offenses rose between 2002 and 2003 and then
        declined each consecutive year thereafter.

    •   In 2006, the average length of stay for juveniles adjudicated for murder (471 days) was higher than
        the average length of stay for any other Part I offense. The shortest average length of stay was for
        juveniles adjudicated for robbery (228 days).

   •    After remaining relatively stable between 2003 and 2005, the total number of youth served by the
        juvenile justice system increased to 2,977 in 2006.

   •    From 2002 through 2006, the majority of youth served by the juvenile justice system were placed in
        the home under the supervision of a parent or guardian.

                           Court Designated Worker Program

In 1986, the Kentucky General Assembly enacted legislation to provide a statewide Court Designated
Worker (CDW) program under the direction of the Department of Juvenile Services of the Administrative
Office of the Courts, the administrative arm of the Kentucky Court of Justice. The mission of the CDW
program is to reduce delinquency among Kentucky’s youth through a collaboration of statewide pre-court
services and programs that promote education and accountability. CDWs process juvenile complaints
against individuals under the age of 18. The complaints are known as public offenses or status offenses.
Public offenses are the same as adult crimes. Status offenses are noncriminal forms of juvenile behavior,
such as running away from home, skipping class, tobacco offenses or exhibiting beyond-control behaviors
at home or at school.

Each of Kentucky’s 120 counties has access to the services of a CDW who is available 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. A set of uniform criteria determine which juvenile complaints must be forwarded to
formal court and which are eligible for informal processing through the CDW program. More serious
offenses and repeat offenders are referred to formal court. Juveniles involved in minor offenses are
generally eligible for informal processing and enter diversion agreements. A diversion agreement is a
voluntary contract between the CDW and the juvenile to resolve a complaint. The data included in this
section were provided by the Administrative Office of the Courts.

    •   In 2006, Jefferson County had the highest number of complaints processed by the CDW program
        (7,479) and Robertson County had the lowest (18).

    •   The majority of complaints processed by the CDW program involved juveniles charged with assault,
        theft, or burglary.

    •   In 2006, 25% of complaints filed with the CDW program resulted in a successful diversion.

                           Prescription Drug Related Offenses

Misuse, abuse and illegal sale of prescription drugs are some of the largest threats to patient safety in the
Commonwealth of Kentucky. These problems have reached epidemic proportions, with more and more
incidents of “doctor shopping” being uncovered, and the street values of “legal” drugs reaching all-time
highs.

The Kentucky All Schedule Prescription Electronic Reporting (KASPER) system catalogs most of the
schedule II-V controlled substance prescriptions written and dispensed within the state, and provides a tool
for practitioners, pharmacists and law enforcement to improve patient safety and fight the abuse and
diversion of controlled substance prescription drugs. KASPER is Kentucky’s Prescription Monitoring
Program (PMP). Currently 26 states have implemented PMPs and 8 more have passed legislation to
create a PMP. PMPs vary in their characteristics, but they all have a common goal of reducing prescription
drug abuse and diversion. KASPER is one of the most comprehensive Prescription Monitoring Programs
(PMPs) in the country. In February 2006, President Bush released a national drug control strategy that
hails KASPER as one of the nation’s flagship PMPs.

Responsibility for KASPER resides in the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, Office of the Inspector
General, with maintenance and enhancements to the system provided by the Cabinet’s Office of
Information Technology. Kentucky statutes require dispensers of controlled substances to report the
prescriptions dispensed once within every eight days. These data are received by a data collection agent
that then has an additional eight days to edit and process the data and provide the data to the Cabinet,
where the data is loaded into the KASPER system. The data are then available to authorized users of the
system, who may be prescribers for medical treatment of a patient, dispensers for pharmaceutical treatment
of a patient, law enforcement officers for an active drug related investigation, licensing boards for a
licensee, the Kentucky Medicaid program for a recipient, a grand jury (by subpoena), and a judge or
probation or parole office administering a drug diversion or probation program.

A KASPER report shows all controlled substance prescriptions a patient has had for a specified time period,
as well as the doctor who prescribed them and the dispenser who dispensed them. Kentucky Revised
Statute 218A.240 provides that the Cabinet shall use the data for investigations, research, statistical
analysis and educational purposes, and shall proactively identify trends in controlled substance usage and
other potential problem areas.

This section includes data on prescription drug activity in the Commonwealth as collected by the Kentucky
State Police, Administrative Office of the Courts, and KASPER.

    •   The largest number of prescription drug related offenses and arrests were related to possession.

    •   In 2006, 35% of prescription drug related cases resulted in a conviction. The percent of prescription
        drug related cases resulting in conviction has remained relatively stable over the five year period
        between 2002 and 2006.

    •   In 2006, the number of prescription drug related cases reached a five-year high of 6,746 cases.

    •   In 2006, Whitley County had the highest rate of prescriptions dispensed for all controlled
        substances (4038.7 prescriptions dispensed per 1,000 population). Russell County had the lowest
        rate (937.3 prescriptions dispensed per 1,000 population).

                 Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Offenses
•   In 2006, Cumberland, Carroll, Fulton, Rowan, and Daviess Counties had the highest DUI arrest
    rates in the state, averaging 17.9 arrests per 1,000 population per county.

•   In 2006, Fleming, Jackson, Larue, Bracken, and Robertson had the lowest DUI arrest rates in the
    state, averaging 2.4 arrests per 1,000 population per county.

•   After decreasing each consecutive year between 2002 and 2004, the total number of adult DUI
    arrests increased in both 2005 and 2006.

•   There was little variation in the distribution of women and men arrested for DUI from 2002 through
    2006.

•   Between 2002 and 2006, the DUI caseload in Magoffin County more than doubled, making it the
    county with the largest percent increase over this five year period.

•   With only 12 cases in 2006, Robertson County had the fewest DUI cases compared to any other
    county. Jefferson County had the most DUI cases with a total of 4,741 cases in 2006.

•   The percent of all DUI cases resulting in a conviction has remained stable over the five year period
    between 2002 and 2006.

•   In 2006, 68% of all DUI cases resulted in a conviction. However, when broken down by offense, the
    rate of conviction decreased with each subsequent DUI offense. For example, in 2006, 70% of
    individuals charged with their first DUI offense were convicted while just 27% of individuals charged
    their 4th DUI were convicted.

                                           School Safety
When House Bill 330 was passed in the 1998 General Assembly, an opportunity emerged for Kentucky to
employ research driven strategies to maintain a safe and secure learning environment for all children. The
Kentucky Center for School Safety (KCSS) was established to provide data analysis, research, and
technical assistance, and to disseminate information on successful strategies to ensure school safety.
KCSS is a collaborative partnership between a contract agency, Eastern Kentucky University, and three
partner agencies, the University of Kentucky, Murray State University, and the Kentucky School Boards
Association. For the 2005-2006 school year, KCSS published its seventh annual report on school safety.
The report confirmed that many of the efforts to reduce school crime had indeed been successful. The
following is a summary of the findings as they pertain to law violations and consequences in Kentucky
schools:

   •   Of Kentucky’s total 2005-2006 public school population (633,241 students), 7.63% of students
       committed an offense that resulted in suspension, corporal punishment, or expulsion (with or
       without services).

   •   The total number of disciplinary actions for Part I law violations in the 2005-2006 school year
       decreased 74% from the number reported in the 2002-2003 school year.

   •   The total number of disciplinary actions for Part II law violations in the 2005-2006 school year
       decreased 31% from the number reported in the 2002-2003 school year.

   •   Compared to the 2003-2004 school year, the number of reported law violations decreased for each
       Part I offense except for robbery and burglary in the 2005-2006 school year.

   •   Assaults and drug abuse violations account for the largest number of Part II law violations.

   •   In the three year period between the 2003-2004 school year and the 2005-2006 school year, the
       most significant decreases in Part I offenses were for aggravated assault, larceny-theft, and arson.

   •   Region 3, Jefferson County, had the highest rate of disciplinary actions for law violations with a rate
       of 1.42 disciplinary actions per 100 students. Region 2, Southwest, had the lowest rate with .44
       disciplinary actions per 100 students.

   •   For Part I and II law violations, out of school suspensions decreased 18% in the three year period
       between the 2003-2004 and 2005-2006 school years. During this same period, expulsion without
       services decreased 23% and expulsion with services decreased 30%.

   •   The total number of disciplinary actions for incidents involving handguns and weapons other than
       handguns decreased 26% between the 2003-2004 and 2005-2006 school years.

Section XII: Key Criminal Justice
                               Cost Information

While monitoring changes in crime trends, it is also important to track the range of costs associated with
incarceration, community supervision, and criminal justice programs for adults and juveniles.

Since national research has indicated that community-based programs provide effective and cost-efficient
alternatives to detention and incarceration for selected offenders, these factors should be routinely
considered in the allocation of limited criminal justice resources and the development of statewide criminal
justice policy.

It is also important to note that while meta-analysis of research studies provide support for the position that
treatment works and that punishment is ineffective or counter-effective unless combined with training and
reinforcement for positive skills and behaviors, it is also clear that one size does not fit all and programs
must be matched to the needs and abilities of the offender.

This section includes data on state criminal justice budgets, police employment trends, incarceration costs,
substance abuse programming costs, and grant funding.

    •   In FY 2006, Kentucky’s criminal justice enacted budgets totaled $1,007,906,100.00.

    •   The cost per inmate per day in Kentucky’s correctional institutions varies by level of security, from
        $32.53 (Marion Adjustment Center) to $69.13 (Kentucky State Reformatory).

    •   According to the Department for Juvenile Justice, in FY 2006, the total annual costs for juvenile
        institutions, including detention centers, youth development centers, and group homes, was
        $52,547,137.00.

    •   In FY 2006, the Department of Corrections spent $43,523,782.38 on medical expenditures.

    •   In FY 2006, $59,327,547.76 was spent on substance abuse programming by state agencies.

                                      Grants Management
KRS 15A.150 authorizes the Grants Management Branch, Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, to receive
and award federal funds obtained from the U.S. Department of Justice. Federal funds are awarded to state
agencies, local units of government, and private, nonprofit organizations based on three broad types of
grants: Formula, Block, and Discretionary. Formula grants are based on specific criteria determined by the
granting agency (e.g., the Edward Byrne Memorial Grant Program awards money based on a state's
population and criminal justice expenditures). Block grants are federal allocations provided to states for a
specific purpose, with relatively broad guidelines for allocation. Discretionary grants are those used for
special purposes (e.g., funding of the Statistical Analysis Center). Among the major grant programs
administered by the Grants Management Branch are the following:

    •   Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Block Grants (LLEBG)
        The Byrne program is a federal formula grant program which awards monies to states based on a
        formula consisting of a base amount of .25 percent of the total allocation plus Kentucky's relative
        share based on population. Funds are available from 28 program areas and are used to create
        safer communities and improved criminal justice systems. State and local criminal justice system
        agencies are eligible to apply. The Byrne and LLEBG grant programs were replaced by Justice
        Assistance Grants in 2005; limited residual Byrne grant funds remain for award.

    •   Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants (JAG)
        Funds are awarded to the Commonwealth and certain qualifying local jurisdictions based on
        population and the number of Uniform Crime Report (UCR) Part I violent crimes reported to the
        Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). These federal funds may be used to provide funding to state
        agencies and local units of government, and private not-for-profit organizations, for the
        implementation of law enforcement programs; prosecution and court programs; prevention and
        education programs; corrections and community corrections programs; drug treatment programs;
        and planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs. The JAG program replaced
        Byrne and LLEBG grants in 2005.

    •   Law Enforcement Service Fee Fund
        This program is fully funded by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, with revenue derived from a fee
        assessed on persons convicted of driving under the influence. Funds are used for DUI related
        purposes (e.g., blood alcohol testing and equipment, DUI education).

    •   Victims of Crime Act (VOCA)
        VOCA is a federal formula grant program allocated according to population. Funds are provided to
        units of local government and non-profits to provide direct services to crime victims. Funds are
        typically used to support victim advocate positions. Any private, nonprofit agency providing direct
        services to victims of crime is eligible.

    •   Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
        VAWA is a federal formula grant program allocated according to population. Funds are generally
        provided for victim advocacy/services (30%), prosecution (25%), law enforcement (25%),
        discretionary (15%), and courts (5%). Eligible agencies/entities include victim service programs, law
        enforcement, prosecutors, and any program providing services to adult victims of domestic violence
        and sexual assault.

The remainder of this section presents information on grant awards by county, and includes data on the
Alternatives to Incarceration grant program administered by the Kentucky Corrections Commission. For
brief program descriptions of additional grants administered by the Grants Management Branch, see

CourtNet
   Allows easy and expeditious access to criminal and civil cases filed with the Kentucky Court System.
   Provides court case tracking, consolidates local court information systems (including KY Courts), and
   serves as the system for accessing statistical data.

eWarrants
   Web-based application that provides law enforcement real-time access to arrest warrant information.
   The system provides a mechanism to create paperless complaints that flow to the judge for review
   and signature into a warrant then to law enforcement for servicing. Project is currently in pilot with a
   planned state roll-out for late 2007.
