    crime

    Remember this is only reported crime. I wonder how much of it is violent crime. Have any stats from NY or LA to compare with? I find it very peculiar that the crime stats report on the Ross website reports absolutely no crime in the period it covered, which included the murder of a vet student a year ago. We've been having breakins here in St. vincent these past few weeks.

    semantics

    according to the DOE, if a crime didnt occur on actual campus, it need not be reported. my undergrad had a driveby with 3 dead in the middle of the street in front of the english department, and they had people screaming because they did nto report it, but when lawyers where consuilted, ( a family wanted to sue to get their tuition payment of the freshmen year back), the lawyers all agreed, they had no case, as the crime had not actuallyoccurred on campus. when I went to Ross, you had a few burglaries(which seemed to come in waves, then the culprits where caught, and then there was nothing for 6 month or so, then it would repeat the cycle), but nothing ever happened on campus. and there was never any violent crime. we had one supposed stabbing, very minor, and a few semesters later the girl admitted that it was self inflicted to make her ex feel guilty for dumping her. at the time though, people were really freaked, but Ross did a good job of increasing security, and I saw alot of undercover cops( who i knew, hopefully the criminals didnt too!) who would wander around the banana trail and lizard trail.

    I'd also like to see how these stats compare to those for a couple of American cities. On top of that, does anyone know any stats for European cities? I have a feeling the violent crime rate here is low but probably not the rates for thefts, break-ins, etc.

    fair amount of crime

    considering the population of most of these places is round about 100,000 - 10% of the population is implicated in crime. thats not so bad knowing that 9/10 people are okee dokee.

    i think most of the crimes reported are theft

    the hospital in st. vincent in the evening see's about 1 penetrating wound a night - not so bad considering the amount of guns that are here

    Crime rate - NY, LA

    Violent Crime Rate National Rate in US = 475.0 per 100,000 population

    NY(greater) 483.3 per 100,000
    LA(greater) 721.1 per 100,000

    Violent crime rates are offenses of murder, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault.

    It is less than what I expected!

    Someone reading the above posts might get the impression that the crime rate is higher in the Caribbean than in the US. But the Caribbean rates refer to total crime and the American rates refer only to violent crime. Interestingly, the same site that gives the Caribbean's total crime rates also gives its violent crime rates, which are usually less than 10 per 100,000...which is only slightly more than 1/50 the American average.

    So, Grenada might be safer than LA after all.

    What a Joke

    Talking about the safest Caribbean island? That is so funny. That's like saying which is a nicer domestic pet, a Bengal Tiger or a Grizzly bear. The Caribbean is known for crime and vice. That's why I chose Australia.

    Violent crime in European Union countries averages ONE TENTH of the USA.
