1.New Haven, Conn

This is maybe going to surprise a few people, but this city is indeed one of the most dangerous in the entire United States. Its robbery statistics make it the eighth highest in the country and even though its murder count is lower, there is still a problem with assaults in the city.

Buffalo is moving in the right direction because its crime rate has been dropping on a regular basis and that is certainly a good sign. However, it is still at 1,238 for every 100,000 people and obviously that is still far too high, but there is still quite a lot of poverty, so it is tough to get it lower.

This city is facing real economic decline and that has brought a lot of problems to it. The violent crime rate has remained quite static over the last couple of years as it sits at 1,363 per 100,000 people, however, they did see their murder rate drop by almost 30% and that is quite impressive in a city with this many problems.

This city has no money and that is why the crime rating is 1,408 for every 100,000 people. In order to save money it has actually cut back on the amount of police that work there, so expect this figure to rise in a city that is on the road to destruction.

Baltimore is actually doing quite well since its violent crime rating fell by 5% in the last year. However, it is still at 1,417 per 100,000 people. There is a lot of poverty in the city and you do have to once again look towards that for being the reason for such a high crime rate.

7.Birmingham, Al

This city has a violent crime rating of 1,483 for every 100,000 people and this is certainly going to be a bit of a surprise for those people that believe Alabama is actually quite laid back.
