Note: We use a standard computational formula to calculate our crime rates. This same formula is used by various state government criminal justice departments to calculate crime rate.

VIOLENT CRIMES + PROPERTY CRIMES = TOTAL REPORTED CRIMES

TOTAL REPORTED CRIMES / POPULATION * 1000 = CRIME RATE

*Only cities included in the 2012 FBI UCR with populations of 5,000 or higher with overall crime rates over 70 were considered for our rankings.
