      History: (Revisor's note: Sec. 29-1c was formerly published as Sec. 28e-2. In 1983 it was decided that a separate title 28e devoted to public safety was unnecessary and the title was abolished and this section transferred to its present number. At the same time title 29 was expanded with the transfer from title 19 of several topics which were brought under the jurisdiction of the department of public safety by public act 77-614, entitled An Act Concerning the Reorganization of the Executive Branch of State Government, and subsequent legislation); P.A. 93-340 amended Subsec. (d) to require the annual report to include a specific analysis of sex crimes, effective July 1, 1993.
