Most Dangerous Cities in Mississippi

What are the most dangerous cities in Mississippi? To get the inside scoop on the cities in Mississippi with the highest crime rates, Home Security Shield referenced the most recent official FBI Uniform Crime Report to find out what areas of Mississippi are the most dangerous. 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 Mississippi’s most dangerous cities.

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.
