The National Council For Home Safety And Security has ranked Rowlett #41 in their 100 Safest Cities in Texas - 2018!
National Council of Home Safety and Security methodology: "To identify
the safest cities in Texas, we reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime
Report statistics along with our own population data and internal research. We
eliminated any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI
and removed cities with populations under 10,000.
The remaining cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent
crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes
(burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) per 1,000 people.
These variables were then weighted, with violent crimes accounting for 1.5 of
the total (due to their severity) than property crimes."
