NOTE: The story “Where is the Most Dangerous Place in Maine?” refers to cities and towns, which are ranked by crime rates. It does not reference specific streets or businesses, including those in the stock image that accompanies the story.

Movoto, the real estate brokerage site, just published a ranking of the most dangerous places in Maine. How safe is your city or town?
Overall, they looked at cities and towns with more than 5,000 people and the FBI’s 2013 Uniform Crime Report. They then ranked places based on murders, violent crimes, and property crimes.

Rankings:


Augusta: “Augusta comes in at the top of the list for having the most property crimes per capita in the state. This, plus its 68 violent crimes (including one murder, 25 rapes, 16 robberies, and 26 assaults) gave Augusta the highest number of crimes per person in the state. Residents had just a 1 in 15 chance of being the victim of a crime.”

Biddeford: “When it comes to violent crime, it doesn’t get any more dangerous than Biddeford. Well, as far as Maine goes.”


Bangor: “Of all the places we looked at, Bangor had the fifth highest number of murders per person in 2013.”

Waterville: “In 2013, Waterville had a total of 847 crimes for its population just shy of 16,000 residents, giving it the fifth most crimes per person.”
