Property crime in Westchester is 48.8 percent. The nearest comparable-sized city with FBI crime data is Miami Lakes, Florida. The graphic includes a single Y axis that displays the crime rate per 100,000 people. The range is 0 to 6000. Property crimes are divided into eight categories: burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, arson, fraud, breaking and entering, and vandalism.
Crime in Miami is 100 percent. The Miami Police Department reports that there were 462 murders in 2010. Miami has the highest murder rate of any city in America with 25 or more million residents.
There are several factors that may contribute to a higher crime rate in Westchester including its population size. The town is small (less than 6 miles by 5 miles), so there's a high concentration of people available for criminals to target. It also must be noted that most of Westchester is made up of suburbs outside of New York City, which means that there are less police officers on patrol and more opportunity for crime.
People in Westchester should take precautions against property crime. Keep valuables out of sight by locking them in a safe or leaving them at home. If you do need to bring your belongings with you, use a backpack instead of a bag - thieves will often steal luggage from hotels and airports to break into elsewhere if it isn't worth much money.
According to the statistics, Miami has somewhat higher crime than New York City but ranks slightly lower than Los Angeles. Because Miami has a significantly lower population than both cities, the aggregate number of crimes is obviously lower, but we can adjust for population to compare them. The following table shows the rate of crime per 100,000 people in each city.
Los Angeles has the highest crime rate in California and the third-highest in the United States. By comparison, New York City has one of the lowest rates of violence in the country.
Each year, an estimated 810 people die as a result of gun violence in Miami alone. That's more than the number of people who died in the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Every day, 40 more people are killed by guns in Florida alone.
The rate of gun violence in Miami is about 20 times higher than that in New York City. This means that one out of every five deaths in Miami is due to firearm violence. In New York, this ratio is one in 115.
Furthermore, guns have been used in over 70% of all homicide cases in Miami since 2008. In other words, two out of three murders in Miami between 2008 and 2017 were committed with firearms. This rate is much higher than that of New York where only about one in five homicides involved a gun from 1998 to 2007.
Syracuse has one of the highest crime rates in America, with a crime rate of 41 per thousand population, when compared to all communities of all sizes—from the tiniest villages to the very largest metropolis. One in every 24 people in this city will become a victim of either violent or property crime. Even though Syracuse has one of the highest crime rates in America, it also has one of the lowest risk of death for an individual committing a crime - less than 10% will die.
The city is home to several colleges and universities, which might explain why college students make up a large portion of Syracuse's population. In fact, approximately 70% of residents are under the age of 35. Despite its small size, Syracuse is also a culturally diverse city, with many minorities making up more than 20% of its population. Black Americans are the most common minority group (20%), followed by Hispanic/Latino individuals (14%).
Syracuse is located in Central New York near the southern border of Pennsylvania. It is about two hours from NYC and less than an hour from Canada. The city is surrounded by water on three sides: Onondaga Lake to the north, the Great Salt Lake to the east, and Canandaigua Lake to the west.
Although Syracuse is a small city, there is still danger even for adults. Because of the high crime rate, people should be careful not to walk alone at night or use drugs illegally.
