SW safest cities texas badge

The SafeWise Team is pleased to release the eighth annual Safest Cities report.

Here are the 10 Safest Cities in Texas for 2022

See if your city made the full list.

Texans’ daily concern about safety jumped 13 percentage points (to 62%) in our most recent State of Safety survey. Not only is that a huge leap from the previous year’s 49%—it’s also 15 percentage points higher than the national average. 

But those who call one of Texas’s 50 safest cities home may be less concerned due to significantly lower rates of crime than the rest of the state.

In this report

2022 Texas crime rates

Even though Texas’s crime rates are higher than national averages, The Lone Star State boasts the lowest crime rates in the West South Central region. Texas is 33% below Arkansas, which has the highest violent crime rate in the region at 6.7 incidents per 1,000 people. And Texas reports 22% fewer property crime incidents than Louisiana, which has the highest property crime rate in the region at 28.8 incidents per 1,000.

That said, the state saw a slight uptick in violent crime this year, rising from 4.2 to 4.5 incidents per 1,000 people. On the flip side, the property crime rate fell from 24.1 to 22.5 incidents per 1,000 people.

Level of concern and experience with crime in Texas

High levels of concern about crime and safety echo higher crime rates across The Lone Star State, but reported experiences of both violent and property crime fell year over year. Although Texans worry more than the rest of the US, 56% of survey respondents feel safe in the state—slightly higher than the national average of 55%. 

  • 60% of Texans think crime is increasing versus 11% that think it’s decreasing. Nationwide, 66% think crime is on the rise and 8% think it’s declining.
  • Personal experience with violent crime went down 56% year over year, with 7% of survey respondents reporting a personal experience in the 12 months prior to the survey, compared to 16% the previous year.
  • Personal experience with property crime also went down 39% year over year, from 23% to 14%.
  • Package theft was the most-experienced crime in Texas, with 21% falling victim to porch pirates in the 12 months  prior to the survey (US 20%).

Violent crime in Texas: Fear vs. reality

Concern about violent crime is 11 percentage points higher in Texas than the rest of the US. That jump in concern reflects a rising violent crime rate statewide. Texans expressed the second-highest overall concern about gun violence in the nation.

  • Texas saw a 7% increase in its violent crime rate year over year. 
  • 48% of survey participants use some form of personal protection—41% higher than the national average of 34%.
  • A pocket knife or self-defense knife is the most common form of personal protection used in Texas.
  • 50% say their personal safety has been affected by the pandemic (US 44%), and 70% worry about the pandemic every day (US 60%).

  • 61% said they worry about gun violence every day (US 53%).
  • 53% are most worried about a gun violence incident happening to them (US 38%).
  • Texas saw 57 mass shooting incidents in 2021 compared to 34 in 2020—the second-highest number of incidents in the US. Illinois recorded the most with 85 and California had the third-most incidents with 46.

Property crime in Texas: Fear vs. reality

Texans are 45% more concerned about property crime than most Americans. Higher concern may be what’s motivating Texans to invest in property protection measures more than other Americans. Plus, more security measures may be a contributor to falling property crime rates statewide. 

  • The property crime rate in Texas fell 6% year over year, from 24.1 incidents per 1,000 people to 22.5.
  • Overall, Texans are most worried that property crime will happen to them, and it accounts for 83% of all crime reported to the FBI by Texas law enforcement agencies. This matches the national average.
  • Texas is the second most-concerned state when it comes to property crime (behind New York). It’s the fifth most-concerned in regard to package theft
  • Burglary makes up 17% of all property crime in the state, 1 point higher than the proportion of burglaries throughout the US.
  • 65% of Texas survey participants use some form of property protection (US 60%) with dogs nabbing first place—33% use dogs or another guard animal to help protect their home.
  • 42% say the security of their property has been affected by the pandemic (US 29%).

Didn't find your city in the top 50?

We calculated crime rates for every city in the state that met our population threshold, based on the state’s median population as calculated using FBI data. To request a report of the remaining cities in your state, sign up for our email newsletter (we make it easy in a quick form below!) or email info@safewise.com with the subject line: Safest Cities Full Report.

NOTE: If you don’t see your city on the list, it means that it was below the population threshold or didn’t submit a complete crime report to the FBI in 2020.
