These are the 11 U.S. cities with the highest crime rates from 2003 through 2009, according to an analysis of FBI violent and property crime reporting data by Onboard Informatics. Each city in this slide show has a crime risk index score based on that data. A score of 100 would mean that a city’s crime risk is equal to the national average. All of the 11 cities on this list have crime risk index scores of 331 or higher.
