Violent crimes happen everywhere in the world. However, as with everything else, there are some places where they happen more often than usual. There are some cities in Arizona that, based on the numbers, are more prone to violent crimes.
While the crime rate in this small city has actually gone down from previous years, it’s still high in terms of percentage. In fact, according to statistics, a Kingman resident has a 23.5% chance of being a victim of violent crime.
One of the biggest cities in the state, Glendale has more than its fair share of crimes. It is approximated that 1 out of every 200 citizens from Glendale may experience a form of violent crime. While this rate is lower than in previous years, it’s still a significant statistic.
The state capital comes in next in this list, which is quite an achievement, given that it has a population of around 2 million. It is estimated that 1 out of every 136 people can fall prey to a violent crime while in this city.
One in every 85 persons in this city may become a victim of violent crime. An additional worry here is the fact that, compared to the previous year, the crime rate in Show Low has actually increased by about 35%.
The violent crime rate in Tempe has increased, which more than justifies its climb up in most rankings of this kind. It is estimated that about one in every 206 residents becomes a victim of a violent crime.
As the second-largest city in Arizona, it is actually a surprise that Tucson isn’t closer to the top of this list. Only 736 people out of every 100,000 have become a victim of violent crime, which is a decent number for this large of a city.
While better known as an old-school town along route 66, it has a not-so-satisfactory reputation as being among the most dangerous cities in Arizona. There is a 1 out of 96 chance that you may be a victim of a violent crime here.
One of the most scenic cities in the state, it has the unsavory reputation of being the state’s 3rd most dangerous city. There is 1 in 95 chance of being a victim of violent crime, although this rate has decreased over the years.
There used to be a time when this was the most dangerous city in terms of violent crime. Tolleson’s violent crime rate has lowered, but it still remains high at 835 violent crimes per 100,000 people.
This has become the worst city in Arizona in terms of the frequency of violent crime. There is a 1 in 50 chance that you may become a victim of violent crime if you live in Globe.
