Crime is everywhere and no one can escape it, but it would be better if they could just have a little less of it. 

Everyone wants to be able to live somewhere they are not constantly having to clutch their bag or look over their shoulder. Finding a forever home can be hard because finding somewhere safe to live is difficult nowadays. 

“In 2022, major cities recorded an additional five percent of the increase in homicides, a report from the council of criminal justice found,” according to SmartAsset.

New research from SmartAsset shows that Frisco, Tx is the safest city in the U.S. 

“Frisco has the fifth-lowest crime rate with 86 violent crimes reported per 100,000 residents, the sixth-lowest property crime rate with 972 crimes per 100,000 residents, and the sixth-lowest drug poisoning mortality rate with 7.3 deaths per 100,000,” according to SmartAsset. 

Frisco’s crime statistics are showing why more and more people are wanting to move here. People are realizing this is a safe place for themselves and their families, but Frisco is not the only city in Texas that has high ranks. 

“The top two safest cities in America are in the North Texas region and four Texas cities are in the top ten, including Frisco, McKinney, McAllen, and Plano, TX,” SmartAsset said. 

Even in the roughest times, the North Texas Region has been able to keep three of its biggest cities safe for their people by keeping those crime rates down. 

Some people see how safe these cities are and think that it must come with a price, but not always. 

“Four of the ten safest cities are relatively affordable, and three of those four are in Texas,” according to SmartAsset. “Being Frisco, McAllen, and Plano, TX.”

Having the ability to live in a city where it is safe is good, but living in a city where the surrounding cities are safe is great.
