AJSAC Fact Sheet: Arrests for Drug Offenses in Alaska: 2000–2011

"Arrests for Drug Offenses in Alaska: 2000–2011" by Brad A. Myrstol (2013) The September 2013 issue of the AJSAC Fact Sheet presents data on arrests for drug offenses made by Alaska police agencies for the period 2000 through 2011. The report presents drug offense arrest information for both adults and juveniles for the 12-year period, including number of drug offense arrests, drug offense arrests as a percentage of all arrests, drug offense arrest rate, and drug offense types. Data is drawn from the annual Crime in Alaska report of the Alaska Department of Public Safety, which represents the State of Alaska's contribution to the FBI's Uniform Crime Reports (UCR) program. The Fact Sheet is by Dr. Brad A. Myrstol, director of the Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center (AJSAC).
