10 Most Dangerous Cities in Kansas

What are the most dangerous cities in Kansas? To get the lowdown on the cities in Kansas that are the most dangerous with the highest crime rates, we consulted the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report. Our rankings are based solely on the data publicly released each year by the FBI. A crime is a crime, so we took both violent and property crimes into account when compiling our list of Kansas’ most dangerous cities. Our list of dangerous cities, however, are ranked according to violent crime rate.*

We realize that this topic is inherently controversial in nature and hits close to home. We are aware that there are many different ways to present this data, but when compiling this list we chose to consider not just murder rate, but both violent and property crimes. Our list is ranked by violent crime rate, but check each city listing to get a general idea of the city’s ranking in terms of overall criminal offenses. Only cities with populations over 5,000 were considered. Cities with overall crime rates below 45 were also excluded.
