Interesting about crime rates......
It's a well-established fact that Japan has one of the lowest overall crime rates in the world. Tokyo is no exception to that rule. When it comes to violent crimes, Tokyo is perhaps the safest of all the large metropolitan cities.
According to a study compiled by the UN Office on Drug and Crime and cited by the Guardian, in 2012, Tokyo had a homicide rate of 0.4 per 100,000 people, compared to New York City with 5.2, 4.0 in Bangkok, and London with 1.6.
In 2015, Tokyo was named the "Safest City" to live in by the Economist Intelligence Unit according to its Safest Cities index, which looks at a variety of indicators including personal safety, infrastructure safety, health security, and digital security. For comparison, New York City was number 10.
Maine had the lowest reported violent crime rate, with 112.1 offenses per 100,000 of the population.
Public safety makes up 50 percent of the Best States for crime & corrections ranking. This subcategory evaluates both the violent crime rate and the property crime rate in each state, as measured by the FBI in 2017. Though some major cities, such as Chicago and Baltimore, have seen drastic increases in homicides in recent years, overall violent crime and property crime rates remain near historic lows.
A higher state ranking indicates a lower crime rate for these metrics. Maine ranks first in the nation for public safety. Fellow New England state Vermont places second in this subcategory, followed by New Hampshire, New Jersey and Idaho.
