Here Are The 10 Most Dangerous Places In Maine After Dark

At Only in Maine, we like to focus on the beauty and love that exists within our state. It’s not hard to find terrific things to write about on a daily basis. But, telling the whole story is just as important as making sure we remember all the good. As wonderful as Maine is, it’s not without it’s faults. Like every single state in the country, we have our good spots and our…less than good spots.

We’ve compiled a list of places in Maine where you might want to be a bit more careful. But, before we get into that we have to provide a disclaimer: Before we identify these cities as dangerous, we like to remember that a few months ago, the city considered our most “dangerous” was hailed as one of the safest places in America to live. So, take everything you read with a grain of salt! Also, while we’ve created a numbered list, these cities are not ranked. Because we are listing the #1 city in each category, they should all be looked at independently. Click here to view our 2014 FBI source data.

But, don’t let this get you down. Remember that the combined violent and property crime rate in Maine is 127.8 per 100,000 residents – second only to Vermont (99.3 crimes per 100,000). The nationwide average is 375.5 crimes per 100,000 people.
