Wisconsin law enforcement agencies made 204 arrests last year for cases of murder and non-negligent manslaughter. The Wisconsin Department of Justice reports that represents an increase of almost 15%. Those are cases where one human being willfully killed another. The data released Wednesday is compared to 178 arrests in 2019 and 168 arrests the year before that. If you go back five years – to 2016 – the number of arrests in those cases jumps to 241. Violent crime numbers show arrests for rape in the Badger State were off by 17% in 2020. The D-O-J shares the arrest-tracking information with the F-B-I each year.
