What is the Most Dangerous City in the US

The most dangerous city in the world is identified by its number of homicides per 100,000 residents. With so many cities in the world, it makes sense to narrow it down that far. 

The most dangerous city in the US, on the other hand, is identified by the number of incidents of violent crime per 100,000 residents. (This is based on 2018 data, as it is the most complete whole-year data.) 

What Is Violent Crime?

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, violent crime can “pose major threats to American society.” In other words, it can significantly disrupt daily life and push law enforcement to the limits of their resources. Collateral damage can also be very high.

Some of the “key threats” they identify are gang activity, crimes specifically against children (online and offline), crimes on Native American reservations, active shootings, bank robberies, and thefts of jewelry and gemstones. Spikes in any one of these lead to an increase in victims, first hand witnesses to violence, and the feeling of insecurity in a community.

For in-city violence, they also count murder, rape, robbery, and assault. 

The effect on a community is both mental and physical. Survivors and first hand witnesses to violence can experience, besides actual physical injury, mental distress and anxiety. Even second- and third-hand witnesses feel less like going outside and engaging in social activities. This also increases their risk of mental distress, and slows down the economy in the city.

What is the Most Dangerous City in the US?

According to FBI statistics of violent crime per 100,000 people: Detroit, Michigan. In 2018, there were over 2,000 incidents of violent crime. That is 2% of the population; 1 out of every 50 people. Mentally catalogue any place you’ve been with over fifty people in the area. At least 1 would have experienced violent crime directly.

In Detroit, assault has the most incidences in terms of violent crime. To claim assault, a person needs to prove that there was “imminent threat” to themselves. The threat can be from a raised arm or weapon. Next on the list of violent crime incidences is robbery. Robbery can be claimed when something is taken from a person by force, threat, or intimidation. 

Incidences of rape per 100,000 is about half of robbery incidences, but it’s still quite high (147.2 incidences). To claim rape, the principle of non-consensuality is the most crucial aspect. The lowest part of the violent crimes belongs to murder (intentional and premeditated homicide). To put it back into context, 1 out of every 50 people has experienced assault, robbery, rape, or become a victim of murder. 

What Role Does Security Play? 

Security measures are being consistently upgraded in multiple sectors of Detroit. This includes the schools, as school shootings across the nation continue to rise. CCTVs are connected real-team to companies who are authorized to let law enforcement view them as soon as possible. 

Another focus is on increasing security personnel. Schools now want in-house security personnel instead of drawing from third parties. This gives the security personnel an opportunity to train and equip teachers and students. Not only in quick response drills, but also in communication and standards of alerting law enforcement. 

If this is happening within schools, we can expect variations of the same precautions to be happening in different businesses and buildings in the city.
