DECEMBER 14, 2020 - New rankings from AdvisorSmith examined crime reports published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to understand which cities in Texas have the lowest levels of reported crime on a per capita basis.

Allen was one of 39 large cities with a population over 100,000 included in the report. It was ranked as the second-safest large city in Texas. Only Sugarland ranked higher.

The site's proprietary methodology to scoring crime levels factors in the level of reported crimes, as well as their relative severity.

“This crime score places higher weight on more serious crimes like murder and rape, while assigning a lower weighting to property crimes,” explained the report. “We found that the average crime score for Texas cities was 48, and scores ranged from 6 up to 371.”

A total of 39 large cities, 198 midsize cities, and 418 small cities included in the analysis. Read the full report.
