City Violent Crime (per 100k)   Property Crime (per 100k) Notes
1. College Park 1,158 6,794 Ranked #2 last year, and home to Hartsfield Jackson Airport, the busiest airport in the word.  College Park is the most violent place in Georgia.
2. Albany 1,053 4,603 Georgia’s 3rd largest city, Albany has high violent crime and property crime rates.
3. Morrow 419 9,062 Ranked #7 last year, Morrow is actually the least violent city on the list but the property crime is the highest for the state, more than 300% higher than the national average.
4. Americus 840 5,526 Also ranked higher than last year, Americus is the Home to Habitat for Humanity’s international headquarters, and the highest incidents of reported rape crimes in the state.
5. Douglasville 582 5,300 Douglasville is a suburb of Atlanta with high property and violent crime.  Murders are very low in this area despite the high crime rate.
6. Bainbridge 675 3,912 Located in SW Georgia with the 2nd highest rate of burglaries.
7. Warner Robins 471 5,500 In many ways, Warner Robins is a decent place for families to live in Georgia. However, the crime rate is surprisingly quite high for this suburban community.

The best way to stay safe in Georgia is to avoid these areas and others with high crime rates.  Crime happens in and near shopping areas at night in many cases, so avoid those areas.  If that’s not possible, a home security system with cameras will help deter criminals that might target your home.
