In the state of Idaho, the violent crime rate is lower than the national violent crime rate by over 40%, and the property crime rate is lower than the national average by over 3%. This good news is tempered by the fact that the burglary in Idaho, after dropping from 2007 through 2010, edged back up in 2011, according to CityRating.com and ISP.Idaho.gov.*
In 2010, 6,243 burglaries were reported in Idaho, and that figure inched up to 6,540 in 2011, for an increase of 4.8%. On average, a burglary or attempted burglary occurs every 1.3 hours in Idaho.
Of the 6,540 burglaries reported in 2011, 4,505 of them, or nearly 69%, were residential burglaries. Burglaries made up 13.4% of property crimes in Idaho in 2011, and 1,075 arrests were made on burglary charges that year, for an arrest rate of around 16%.
