Missouri City named sixth safest city in Texas (Fort Bend Star)

Missouri City was recently honored as one of the top 10 safest cities in Texas by real estate website Movoto. Compiling crime data from the top 100 most populous municipalities in Texas, Movoto used the FBI’s 2012 Uniform Crime Report to determine that Missouri City is the sixth safest city in Texas.

According to Movoto, Missouri City’s average crime rate is 1,362 per 100,000 people, making it not only one of the safest cities in the Greater-Houston area but also in the entire state. The website also notes the City’s particularly low number of property crimes in 2012 – 1,241 per 100,000, including 66 vehicle thefts, 866 thefts, and 306 burglaries – as another reason for its high ranking.
