10 Most Dangerous Cities in Arizona

Arizona 10 Most Dangerous Cities

What are the most dangerous cities in Arizona? To get the lowdown on the cities in Arizona that are the most dangerous with the highest crime rates, we consulted the recently updated FBI Uniform Crime Report. Our rankings are based solely on the data publicly released each year by the FBI. A crime is a crime, so we took both violent and property crimes into account when compiling our list of Arizona’s most dangerous cities. Our list of dangerous cities, however, are ranked according to violent crime rate.*

We realize that this topic is inherently controversial in nature and hits close to home. We are aware that there are many different ways to present this data, but when compiling this list we chose to consider not just murder rate, but both violent and property crimes. Our list is ranked by violent crime rate, but check each city listing to get a general idea of the city’s ranking in terms of overall criminal offenses. Only cities with violent crime rates over 5 and populations over 5,000 were included. We also excluded cities with overall crime rates under 45.
