Here Are The 10 Most Dangerous Towns In Massachusetts To Live In

Just like any state, Massachusetts has its share of cities where crime is a problem. We’ve considered the most recent F.B.I. crime report and Home Security Sheild’s crime data to create this list of the most dangerous cities in Massachusetts.

Only cities with a population greater than 5,000 were considered, and the cities are ranked in order of violent crime rate. The likelihood of becoming a victim of any crime is included, but the locations are listed in ascending order of violent crime rate. Property crime statistics are also included.

Just a note: this list isn’t meant to “name-and-shame” particular places in Massachusetts. There are so many beautiful and inspiring features and people in each of these cities. Rather, it’s better to look at this list as a roundup of places that could really benefit from a focused effort to create change.

If you’d rather focus on the positive, here is our list of the safest and most peaceful towns in Massachusetts.
