Here Are The 7 Most Dangerous Places In Idaho After Dark

Idahoans are fortunate to live in a state where crime is blessedly low and everyone still somehow knows everyone else, keeping the streets as safe as seemingly possible in this day and age. But no state is entirely perfect. You might remember a few months ago we talked about the most dangerous cities in Idaho. While those statistics haven’t changed, in light of recent events we thought it would be a good idea to take a closer look at the nitty-gritty details of Idaho’s most dangerous cities that may or may not have made the list in terms of overall score — the how and the why, if you will.

Calculated from the FBI’s most recent crime report, as well as additional sources like the Idaho State Police annual report, here are the 7 most dangerous areas in Idaho to be when the sun goes down:

Combine this list with our original list of most dangerous cities, and it’s up to you to use your best judgement when planning your next move, leaving your car unlocked, or walking alone at night. But always remember that Idaho is still a wonderful place to live, and statistics aren’t always an accurate reflection of any given town. It’s also important to note that all statistics reported here were offered voluntarily and don’t take into account cities with populations under 2,000.

That being said, be sure to check out our most recent list of Idaho’s safest cities as well, and let us know whether you agree or disagree with the FBI’s report.
