How Did Charlotte Do Compared To It’s Neighboring Cities In Terms of Crime Rates? Lets Find Out!

April 21, 2017

A study based on crime data says towns surrounding Charlotte are among the state’s safest.

Except for Gastonia, that is.

One hundred towns are included in the survey and among the Top 20 safest were Waxhaw, Stallings, Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville and Mint Hill. Mount Holly was ranked just outside the Top 20, at No. 27.

As for Charlotte-Mecklenburg, we were ranked No. 66.

Gastonia was at No. 91.

Zebulon, in Wake County, was at the bottom.

The study data was compiled and compared by the security company Safewise. It reports the Top 20 cities that made the list this year exemplify the state’s overall commitment to fight sexual assault.

“These cities also report low numbers of murder and non-negligent manslaughter. In fact, every city on our list boasts a lower violent crime rate than the national average,” reported Safewise, citing the FBI’s 2015 crime data report “North Carolina as a whole beats the national violent crime rate, ranking twenty-fourth among all states.”
