Crime Rates for 2007 Released

A recent report released by CQ Press found that New Orleans had the highest rate of crime in the country in 2007. The report is compiled using statistics reported to the FBI regarding crimes of murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and motor vehicle theft. Other cities with the dubious distinction of ranking “high” on this list included Camden, New Jersey; Detroit, Michigan; St. Louis, Missouri, and Oakland, California.
