The Truth About Neighborhood Crime
I found this chart on neighborhood crime in the United States very interesting - especially the break-down of most dangerous and safest cities. It also reminds us that it takes a community to keep a neighborhood and the residents within it safe.
It is important to remember that many crimes occur within a few blocks of where we work and live. This mainly happens because these are the areas where we let our guard down; we feel relaxed and safe in our known environments. Crime can occur anywhere so it's best to be aware of your surroundings at all times not just when you are in a dangerous area.
