While there is still much more work to be done in terms of lowering Louisiana’s crime rates statewide, Louisiana’s local police departments have worked hard over the last decade to make their state one of the most improved states in the country in terms of crime rate. In fact, 9 of Louisiana’s 10 most dangerous cities when rated back in 2000 have greatly lowered their crime indices in the past 10 years.

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
