Review of College Station, Texas


College Stations Crime Rate
Star Rating - 10/5/2007
College Station still enjoys a crime rate that is much less than most cities in the United States. Crime definately has increased since the population has increased, but many people live without locking their doors at night here. College Station, in 2004 (latest data I could find) had less than 1/2 the national average of murders per capita and about 1/4 the number of robberies per capita. There are only two crimes in which we have greater than the national average, whereas in the other categories we enjoy much lower rates. Those are rape and theft. Unfortunately a college town is much more likely to have higher rates of both.
