LPSO stats show crime rates similar
The statistics do not include crimes within local municipalities or on university campuses.
Those statistics are reported separately and will be reported at a later date.
There were two rapes reported last year and none reported in 2004 while aggravated assaults increased slightly from 18 in 2004 to 20 in 2005.
“We are happy to see that our violent crime rate is still very low,” Sheriff Mike Stone said.
“The absence of any murder or robbery cases shows Lincoln Parish is a very safe community.”
