According To FBI Statistics, These Are The 10 Most Dangerous Cities In Nebraska For 2020
In general, Nebraska is one of the safer states in the country, but some amount of crime exists in every state. According to data from the FBI’s Crime in the United States report, these 10 cities experienced the most reported crime in Nebraska in 2018 (the most recent year for which information is available). The data is broken down by violent crimes (murder, rape, robbery, and assault) and property crimes (theft, burglary, arson, and motor vehicle theft). The FBI only reported information for cities with more than 5000 residents. To provide an even comparison between the cities’ vastly different populations, the reported crime rate for each city is listed as incidents per 100,000 people.
Please note: while these cities are “dangerous” according to crime statistics, rest assured that they are all still great places to live. Go Big Red!
