If you ask just about anyone in Texas if they feel safe, most will say, yes. Texas is a big, beautiful state with so much to offer. But just like all parts of the country and across the world there is crime and negative things that take place in the lone star state as well. While we have some amazing law enforcement officers and laws that will hold people accountable, some still want to break the law. There are certain areas that seem to have more dangerous crime than others, so let’s look at the most dangerous cities in Texas. 

Again, this isn’t supposed to scare anyone, we should always do everything possible to stay safe and be aware of our surroundings. But if there are areas that seem to have more crime, we need to talk about it to create awareness, so these areas don’t continue to get worse. I’m not saying that anyone needs to take fighting crime into their own hands, but identifying a problem is normally the first step toward helping to solve that problem.
