Just How Safe is it Living in Wichita Falls?
How safe do you feel living in Wichita Falls? Would you feel safer in a city like Frisco or Plano?
Looking at Texas overall, the top 9 safest cities for the state are in the top 25% percentile nationwide. Like other lists we've reported on, this list from SafeHome.org looks at several factors in personal safety and using FBI data to assign a score to each, culminating in an overall score and rank. For this list, the criteria considered includes:
Vehicle Theft Rate
Population : Officer
Violent Crime % Change
Property Crime % Change
% Population Change
% Youth Population (15-24)
The list only covered cities with a population greater than 50,000, coming up with a list of 65 cities. Of those 65, Wichita Falls didn't do as well as we'd hope, coming in at 46th overall, right between Dallas and Fort Worth.
