The National Council for Home Safety and Security released their Top 100 Most Dangerous Cities in America ranking for 2018 and surprise, surprise, Las Vegas isn't on the list.

In fact, Henderson, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas all managed to stay off of this less-than envious listing.

The top ten most dangerous cities (per average rate of violent crime, per 100,000 people) are:

  1. East St. Louis, Illinois
  2. Darby Borough, Pennsylvania
  3. Opa Locka, Florida
  4. Florida City, Florida
  5. Flint, Michigan
  6. Detroit, Michigan
  7. Saginaw City, Michigan
  8. College Park, Georgia
  9. Prichard, Alabama
  10. West Memphis, Arkansas


Information from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting database was used to create the list. Researchers took data for the years 2010 through 2014 for multiple jurisdictions and found that 3,482 cities qualified for analysis.
