March 11, 2019 — The National Council for Home Safety and Security (NCHSS) has published a study unveiling the most dangerous cities in the United States. By analyzing publically-available FBI crime data and population figures, the NCHSS has created a report that highlights the cities with the highest rate of crime per capita and those with the most significant increase in violence throughout the year.
Alarms.org, the official site of the NCHSS, has announced the following cities as the most dangerous in America.
Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities in the U.S.
1. Anniston, Alabama
2. Bessemer, Alabama
3. Florida City, Florida
4. McKeesport, Pennsylvania
5. St. Louis, Missouri
6. Detroit, Michigan
7. Baltimore, Maryland

The NCHSS has obtained these rankings by analyzing the most recent data made available by the FBI and combining it with current population figures for these US cities. Lists were then created based on the crime rate for all cities, “large” cities (populations over 100,000), and for cities most trending towards crime. Lastly, cities with a population under 10,000 were discarded, as well as the few cities that did not submit complete crime reports to the FBI.
