You can learn a lot about your community, state and country. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

Each week the Missourian will feature another open record. This week:

The records: Annual substance abuse related arrests, deaths, hospitalizations, road traffic incidents and other indicators compiled by the Missouri Department of Mental Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse.

Why you’d want them: To learn more about the incidence of substance abuse related incidents across Boone County and how these have changed over the past three years.

Where you get the records: The statistics are available online in PDF format at Click on “Alcohol and Drug Abuse Indicators,” and the PDF should download.
