2019 List of Texas Top 50 Safest Cities

List of Top 10 Texas Safest Cities

 

The Lone Star State is the nations second largest state-both geographically and population wise. While it is commonly said that “everything is bigger in Texas”, that isn’t necessarily reflected in the crime rate. 

The average state crime ratings are:

Texas violent crimes

 State of Texas Average Violent Crimes

(per 100,000 residents)

texas property crimes per 100k

Texas Average Property Crimes

(per 100,000 residents)

While there are certainly areas where crime rates soar higher than these averages, Texas has a number of communities with outstanding reputations for low crime rates.

The Texas cities Colleyville, Murphy, Trophy Club and all experienced less than 10 violent crimes in 2017.

7 of our Top 10 Safest Cities had less than 150 property crimes. 

In cities with populations well above 10,000, these are great numbers.

If you are looking for a safe place to take up residence and/or raise a family in The Lone Star Stae, this list of safe cities in Texas is a good place to start.

Consequently, The Home Security Advisor recognizes some of the larger cities in Texas that have done an outstanding job keeping crime rates down and communities safe.

How We Calculate the Top 50

 

To determine the most secure towns and cities throughout Texas, our staff members reviewed the most up-to-date  (2017) FBI Uniform Crime Report results with respect to towns and cities with ten thousand residents or higher, who recorded their crime data..

We tabulated both “Violent” (aggravated assault, murder, rape and robbery) and “Property Crimes” (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft).  In order to reflect the seriousness of the criminal activity, these figures were weighted. Violent crimes were added to property crimes which were factored by .50.

The sum of the two was then divided by the population in the community. For comparison purposes, we normalized the mathematical finding to reflect weighted criminal offenses per 100,000.

While no rating system is perfect, this provides a reasonably good mathematical gauge of the overall safety and security in the community. If you’re looking to find some of the safer communities in Texas, these residential districts merit consideration. 

Keep in mind, not every town and city reports their records. If a community did not report their stats to the FBI, they will not be included in the list.  Any communities with reporting ommissions or anomalies might also not be reflected in this year’s rankings. 

Additionally, it is important to realize that certain areas inside any city may have much lower crime rates than other neighborhoods. This is especially valid in larger cities. Therefore, make sure to check into specific neighborhoods within the community and communicate with law enforcement to obtain a better overall impression of the security and safety on a local level.
