Website Names Atlantic City the Most Dangerous City in New Jersey
The most dangerous city in New Jersey is not Camden. Camden didn't even make the Top 10!
The most dangerous city, according to a website is Atlantic City.
Millville shows up at number 3, followed by Bridgeton.
The RoadSnacks web site claims to have looked at 3 years of FBI crime data to determine Atlantic City is the most dangerous city in the state.
Despite the fact that violent crime fell by 8% and property crime dropped by 19% between 2011-3, Atlantic City’s crime statistics are still pretty terrible. In 2013, residents still faced a 1 in 58 chance of being the victim of violence, and a 1 in 16 chance of being the victim of a property crime.
Here's what the site says about Millville:
Millville’s is the least violent of the top 5 most dangerous cities, but it’s the worst in terms of property crime.
That is partially due to a 36% hike in property crime from 2011-3, which left residents with a 1 in 12 chance of being the victim of theft or arson in 2013. Violent crime also went up by 13% during this period, so while the top 2 cities on this list are improving, Millville’s trend means it might move to the top in a few years.
Bridgeton came in at number 4:
Bridgeton’s motto is “Come Celebrate.” With regards to crime, Bridgeton has little to celebrate of late, with violent and property crime rates each going up by roughly 11% between 2011-3. Still, there’s 78% less property crime in Bridgeton than in Millville.
So, what about Camden? The city that seems to ALWAYS be at the top of these lists?
Well, funny thing.... Camden wasn't included in the rankings because RoadSnacks says Camden didn't report FBI crime statistics in 2013.
Oh, OK then....
