Missouri State Highway Patrol launches 'Crime in Missouri' report online

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The Missouri State Highway Patrol launched its ‘Crime in Missouri’ report section online Thursday.

The user-friendly site allows people to look up statistics about crime; ranging from burglaries, arson and even murder across the state.

The patrol says it’s a good tool for people to see what is going on in their area.

“People want to know what’s going on,” said sgt. Jake Sngle with the MSHP.  “They want to be able to see what the crime rate is maybe in particular area or just if they are thinking about maybe moving to the state. People want to know and obviously we want transparency. We want people knowing what is going on in the state.”
