The AJSAC has released Fact Sheet 14-03, "Arrests for Drug Offenses in Alaska: 2000-2011," which presents data for 2000–2011 on arrests for drug offenses made by Alaska police agencies. The fact sheet 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 Khristy Parker, research professional at the Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center.
REVISION NOTE: This fact sheet was revised following notification from Alaska Department of Public Safety (DPS) of incomplete data reported for 2012 in Crime in Alaska. This notification precipitated the exclusion of 2012 data from the fact sheet. The title of this fact sheet has changed to reflect the change in data used.
