Aggravated Kidnapping occurs when someone illegally detains, kidnaps, or abducts another for ransom or retribution. It is important to understand the relationship between LTC holders and crime statistics to evaluate policies and practices related to LTC eligibility.

Crime Statistics among Texas LTC Holders

In 2021, there has been 1 conviction for Aggravated Kidnapping among Texas LTC holders, which constitutes 0.2% of the total convictions for this crime. Comparatively, there were 131 convictions for Aggravated Kidnapping among non-LTC holders, constituting 99.8%.

Factors that may Contribute to the Difference in Crime Statistics between Texas LTC and Non-LTC Holders

There are several factors that may account for the difference in crime statistics between Texas LTC and non-LTC holders. For example, obtaining an LTC in Texas requires a background check and eligibility requirements. Additionally, LTC holders are required to participate in training and education courses to renew their license. Lastly, LTC holders may have a greater perception of risk and responsibility than non-LTC holders.


The data shows that Texas LTC holders are significantly less likely to commit crimes than non-LTC holders. This suggests that the background checks, eligibility requirements, and training and education courses required to obtain and renew an LTC may be effective in deterring crime. It is important to analyze these findings and consider the implications for policy and practice related to LTC eligibility and safety.
