Turn on the news and you’ll hear report after report about crimes in The Pelican State. But have you ever wondered which cities in Louisiana are the most dangerous?
An online real estate service, Neighborhood Scout, analyzed violent crime statistics from the the FBI and the U.S. Justice Department and applied their own algorithm to each city providing enough info to compile a ranking. (Their methodology can be found here.) Using that information, we’ve put together this list of the most dangerous places in Louisiana.
Were you surprised by any of the cities that made this list? Do you think others belong here too? We’d love to know your opinion in our comments.
