The National Council for Home Safety and Security, a national trade association that advocates for safe communities and home safety, has released it’s 2018 rankings of the Safest Cities in Texas and League City ranks third in cities with a population over 100,000.
To identify the safest cities in Texas, the Council reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with population data and internal research. Cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and those with populations under 10,000 were removed from the calculation. The remaining cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) per 1,000 people. These variables were then weighted, with violent crimes accounting for 1.5 of the total (due to their severity) than property crimes.
When the results were tallied, League City came in third for populations over 100,000 just after Allen and Frisco, respectively. Click here to see the complete the 2018 rankings.
