AUGUSTA, Ga. - The CQ Press released FBI based Statistics on the “most dangerous cities” in the country this past Sunday, Nov. 21st and Augusta wasn’t on it. 

According to the study Augusta is one of 11 cities that did not provide crime statistics.

Atlanta, 25th

Macon, 38th

Albany, 56th

Four hundred cities with a population of more than 75,000 are on the list.
