San Antonio scores low in safe city study

How safe is San Antonio?

According to a new study…not very.

SafeWise based its rankings on violent and property crime rates.

Here’s what they came up with.

The safest city in Texas is Kermit. The community, with a population of about 6,000 people has a violent crime rate of zero per thousand residents. But if you don’t want to pack up and move that far west, there are some safe cities near San Antonio. Try Fair Oaks Ranch, Fredericksburg, Helotes or Cibolo.

287 cities were included in the study and San Antonio came in at number-269, with a violent crime rate of just over seven per thousand residents.

But, it could be worse Texarkana came in at the very bottom of the list.
