How do these metro areas compare in crime?

Where can I find detailed info on crime rates in these metros?

What metro area do you think will see in increase or decrease in crime in the future?

I really don't think it's fair to compare Atlanta and Dallas with Nashville, Austin and Denver as they are larger and will naturally have more crime.

The FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program keeps track of crime statistics. The annually published Crime in the United States report includes crime statistics for metropolitan areas across the country.

Crime Statistics can be useful but one has to know the geography behind them. In most cities crime is very concentrated in specific neighborhoods that most who post here wouldn't consider living in or spending any time in. Outside of purchasing a home in a transitional neighborhood, in my opinion these statistics offer little other than anxiety to those who don't understand the specifics.
