Arizona has experienced a 6.5% growth in violent crime rates, which is less than Michigan, which is in 10th position, but the Grand Canyon State has seen a 40.5% spike in homicide rates, resulting in 513 recorded homicides in 2020 and a sum of 485 violent crimes per 100,000 residents.
The Grand Canyon is the state’s most famous landmark, yet it also ranks as the fourth most dangerous place in the Union. The town of Globe is among the places that are thought to be the most unsafe or violent. Residents are particularly prone to property crimes, with 7,380 such crimes reported per 100,000 people, in addition to 2,141 crimes per 100,000 people, the highest rate of any city in the state. But Tolleson outpaces Globe in terms of property offenses. Here, property crime affects 1 in 11 locals.
Phoenix, the largest city in the state, has 849 violent crime occurrences per 100,000 residents, including 120 murders, 2,040 robberies, and 5,670 assaults.
