Neighborhoodscout.com, compared FBI crime statistics and data from the U.S. Department of justice to pin point crime hot spots.
According to the site, Tallahassee received a 6 out of 100, 100 being the safest. Meaning, the capital city is safer than only 6% of the cities in the U.S.
However, the Tallahassee Police Department says they cannot trust the sites information because there is no way to know when or how the data was collected, but do offer another one stop shop to find crime information.
Dave McCranie, TPD Spokesperson says, "We already know that the population index is incorrect because it lists Tallahassee at 150,000 resident and we know our population is greater than that. We encourage ever citizen to go to talgov.com and you can click on TOPPS Tallahassee Online Police Statistics and you can see what's going on in your neighborhood fist hand. Then, you make the decision whether you think your neighborhood is safe of not."
Neighborhoodscout.com also says your chances of being a victim in Tallahassee is 1 in 96. And a 1 in 16 chance of falling victim to property crime.
