Generally when you think of the Capital Region, especially the tri-cities, you think of some crime ridden sections of those cities. On the outskirts though we are very safe.

There are a handful of cities you certainly will not expect nor see on this list as compiled by Playmember.com, cities such as Albany, Schenectady and Troy to name a few. What I notice though when you look into it, each of those cities have neighboring towns on this list. Sadly though no town in the Capital Region cracked the top 20. From that point we do dominate the rest of the list.

The listing goes by crime rate,

  • Bethlehem, 22
  • Colonie, 30
  • Niskayuna, 34
  • Guilderland, 35
  • Schodack, 36
  • Glenville, 42
  • Rotterdam, 43
  • East Greenbush, 46
  • North Greenbush, 48

Do you tend to believe that those rankings are accurate? My only question an maybe I am wrong. Isn't Saratoga a fairly safe town? Another snub that shocks me is also Clifton Park. Either way some awesome Capital Region pride here.
