Atlantic City Murder Rate Lowest in 30 Years: Still Ranked Among Most Dangerous

Only three people were murdered in the New Jersey seaside gambling resort of Atlantic City in 2013 with just two more days to go.  That’s a steep drop from the 18 murders last year.

Several factors are credited for the decrease, but most notably there has been a substantial crackdown on gang activity in the city.

“You can’t really point to any one single strategy,” Police Chief Henry White told the paper.

Despite these impressive numbers, Atlantic City is still ranked among the top 20 most dangerous places in which to live according to NeighborhoodScout.com, a website that utilizes FBI and population numbers to calculate violent crime rates.  In 2012, Atlantic City was ranked 7th.  Its ranking dropped to 13th in 2013.

There were nearly 19 crimes per 1,000 residents in 2012.
