Here Are The 11 Most Dangerous Places In Hawaii After Dark
According to the Crime Prevention and Justice Assistance Division, crime rates in Hawaii have decreased dramatically in the last decade – the state as a whole experienced record low rates of robbery, burglary, arson and violent crime. While Hawaii as a whole is extremely safe in terms of violent crime, quite a bit of property crime occurs here, and no time is that more true than after the sun has slipped below the horizon.
Using information from AreaVibes.com and NeighborhoodScout.com, as well as statistics from the National Drug Intelligence Center, we have compiled a list of the 11 most dangerous towns – and census-designated places – throughout the Hawaiian Islands, listed in no particular order. Don’t think that this is a comprehensive list, though; there are at least 13 other dangerous towns that have higher than average crime rates for Hawaii.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
