Here Are The 11 Most Dangerous Places In Kentucky After Dark

The first thing that comes to mind when I think about our state is our beauty and our friendly people. Unfortunately, not everyone here IS friendly, or good-hearted. That is no more obvious than in the dangerous cities in Kentucky after dark. These are not our figures but were gathered via the reliable source known as Neighborhood Scout. All the data was calculated via the community’s specific mathematical algorithm and municipal crime statistics via the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department. The cities are rated on a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being the safest, and 1 being the least safe. Here are 11 places you won’t want to venture out into after dark, especially alone. They all rate 8 or less for safety.

Not everywhere in these cities should be considered bad. All communities tend to have a problem area or street. These are the current FBI and crime statistics for these neighborhoods, so please don’t blame the messenger. However, since we have shown 11 dangerous after dark cities in Kentucky, here are some charming small towns across the state that will make you feel right at home.

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky. I love writing, art, sunshine, all animals and my incredibly patient husband, who tolerates my "crazy animal lady" side.
