Daytona Beach, FL – Recent data collected by the FBI has revealed that Daytona Beach is the most dangerous city in Florida.
In their 2015 Uniform Crime Report, the FBI focused on crime rates, increases, decreases, as well as major trends. The Graphiq-owned real estate intelligence website, FindTheHome, used the FBI’s data to rank the most dangerous places in every state.
Only cities with a population over 50K were included so crimes in smaller cities would not skew the rankings. FindTheHome focused on only violent crime per 100K people within a city and found that Daytona Beach had the highest number in the entire state. Daytona Beach, with a population of 63,505, has a violent crime per 100K people of 1,555.8. According to the data, a total of 988 violent crimes were reported in Daytona Beach.
