Crime

Murfreesboro's crime went up in 2006 10%. Murders rose from 2 to 6. Do you [still] feel safe in Murfreesboro?

I do at this point. I live in a safe neighborhood by the grace of God.

6 murders for a town of about 90,000 people is not extraordinary by any means. No, it's never good to see murders or crime rise, but consider that in a place like Murfreesboro, with traditionally low crime, it is easy for the statistics to fluctuate from year-to-year.

Murfreesboro is, in fact, safer than a lot of cities in Tennessee that are a tenth of its size. I would not be particularly concerned about crime in the city until the murder rate starts rising into the double digits (although I would like to see what the statistics are for other violent crime).

sidenote: Nashville only has a moderate murder rate for a city its size, but has a very high rate of assault and battery as well as rape, so murder rate can sometimes be deceptive as far as how 'safe' a city is.
