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

So, we recently covered the safest cities in Texas, and while we have so many quiet, peaceful communities in the Lone Star State, we also (sadly) have some cities where crime is much more common. Moving to a new city is a big deal, and the crime rate often plays a significant factor in whether you will plant your roots there or not. We consulted Home Security Shield’s list of the most dangerous cities in Texas in order to give you the most accurate information possible.

We realize that many of you call these towns your home, and this list isn’t meant to bash any of them. Rather, it’s meant to bring factual information to everyone in Texas so that each person can make an informed decision about where to live. Without further ado, here are the most dangerous towns in Texas according to reported crime rates.

Do you agree with our list? If not, which towns would you add, and which would you omit? Share your thoughts with us!
