Juvenile Arrests

Date updated: 07/15/2013

The data presented here represent either the rate or number of juveniles arrested, not the number/rate of offenses committed. Individuals are reported in the month and year they are arrested, rather than the date the crime was committed. Several youth can be arrested for the same offense, or one youth can be arrested on multiple offenses, in which case the arrest would be counted only once for the most serious offense. Rates are based on the juvenile population, ages 10 through 17, in Larimer County. All Loveland Police Department (LVPD) rates and numbers for 2003 are estimates based on extrapolations from four months of data the agency submitted to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. Categories of arrests are:
