If you want to live in a Texas city or town with less crime, move somewhere with fewer people.
The 30 Texas cities with the lowest crime rates all have fewer than 10,000 residents, according to the FBI’s annual Uniform Crime reports.
Two towns reported no property crime or violent incidents: Crowell, a town of about 895 people that’s roughly 82 miles west of Wichita Falls, and O’Donnell, a town about 45 miles south of Lubbock with about 805 residents.
Law enforcement agencies voluntarily submit data for inclusion in the FBI’s report.
Crime rate is calculated by dividing the number of known crime incidents in a given area by that area’s population, then multiplying it by 100,000.
The Texas city with the lowest crime rate and a population of more than 10,000 residents is Colleyville, which reported a crime rate of 610.07 incidents per 100,000 people.
