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.
The study states that “crime statistics for these cities were unavailable for a number of reasons, ranging from general reporting difficulties and computer issues to changes in reporting systems.”
Georgia "most dangerous" cities on the list include:
Four hundred cities with a population of more than 75,000 are on the list.
The statistics used are from 2009 and include murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft.
There were 26 murders in Augusta in 2009. There have been 37 murders in Augusta as of November 26th, 2010.
