Safest City 2019 Icon

SafeWise is happy to release our fifth annual Safest Cities report. Here are the 50 Safest Cities in Texas for 2019.  See if your city made the list.

Everything’s bigger in Texas and unfortunately, that applies to statewide crime rates. The Lone Star State has slightly higher violent and property crime rates compared to national averages. Its 4.95 violent crime rate is barely over the national rate of 4.49 incidents per 1,000 people. But the good news is that 84% of the safest cities reported fewer than one violent crime per 1,000 residents.

Moving on to property crime, the state’s 29.11 rate tops the national rate of 27.11—but not by much. It helps that 100% of the cities on our list did better than the national property crime rate, with no city experiencing more than 23.72 incidents per 1,000. That’s impressive for any state, but it really stands out for one that’s so populous—three of the cities that made our list have populations over 100,000.

Interesting Findings

  • 80% of this year’s safest cities also made the list in 2018.
  • Kermit, the safest city in Texas, reported zero counts of violent crimes in 2017.
  • 96% of the cities reported fewer than 100 total violent crimes, and no city saw more than 1.16 incidents per 1,000.
  • 80% were murder-free.
  • Digital security is the top safety concern in Texas, with 58% naming it number one on our State of Safety report.
  • 21% of Texas respondents to our State of Safety study experienced a digital security issue in the past year, compared to just 8% who experienced a violent crime.
