Approximately 35 percent of female victims were killed by their husbands or boyfriends. The estimated dollar loss attributing to property crimes, not including arson, in 2009 was $15.2 billion Almost 800,000 motor vehicle thefts took place in the United States, but this number has declined over the last ten years. The estimated number fell 17.1 percent from last year and 31.5 percent from 2000. White adults were most commonly arrested for driving under the influence (954,444 arrests) and drug abuse violations (845,974 arrests). Juveniles accounted for 15.4 percent of all arrests in 2009. The rate of full-time law enforcement employees (civilian and sworn) per 1,000 inhabitants in the nation for 2009 was 3.5. Most hate crimes were racially motivated (49.1 percent). Nearly 19 percent were the result of sexual orientation bias. The arrest rate for violent crime was 191.2 per 100,000 inhabitants. For property crime, the arrest rate was 571.1 per 100,000 inhabitants. In 2009, 34.7 percent of arson nationwide were cleared by arrest or exceptional means.
