City-data is showing a very low crime rate for Brandenburg, Ky.

Bestplaces.net is showing a much higher than average crime rate for Brandenburg, Ky.

Which is correct?

When looking at crime rates, also be aware of how old the information is. City-data still shows information that is usually older than other sites. For example Danville has a higher than average crime rate on Cit-data but the information is 3 years old. On another site which uses information from 2015, Danville has a lower than average crime rate. Crimes rates also vary depending on how much weight they give to non violent crimes vs violent crimes. A good example of this is Mount Sterling. Overall violent crime is low, but it ranks higher than average in crime because of things like larceny or theft.

Brandenburg doesn't have a bad reputation for crime that I know of. Radcliff has a few issues with shootings and home invasions based on the news.
