The Safest Deregulated Cities in Texas

Comunidad

Safety and cost of living are two of the biggest factors to consider when choosing a place to live. Seven Texas cities were included on Neighborhood Scout’s 2017 Top 100 Safest Cities in the U.S. list. However, most of these cities still have regulated electricity, meaning that customers have less choice and ultimately pay higher prices when it comes to power providers. For cities that strike a balance between safety and energy choice, check out the list below of the five safest deregulated cities in Texas.

1. Kermit

With a population of less than 7,000, Kermit boasts one of the lowest crime rates in Texas. Located in Winkler County, Kermit has an average of 2 violent and 18 property crimes per year according to the National Council for Home Safety and Security, making it the safest city in Texas.

2. Keller

Located in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, Keller has been named the 34th safest city in the United States by Neighborhood Scout. It was also ranked the 8th safest city in Texas by SafeWise and the 14th safest Texas town by the National Council for Home Safety. The Tarrant County town has only .51 violent crimes and 7.31 property crimes per 1,000 citizens. At roughly 45,000 citizens, that adds up to 23 violent crimes and 328 properly crimes yearly.

3. Alpine

Alpine scores high on the safest unregulated cities list. With a total population of 5,988, Alpine ranks 15th safest Texas city according to The National Council for Home Safety and Security. The city of Alpine scores a 90 on City-Data’s Crime Index, versus typical U.S. cities, which average a score of 236.

4. Allen

Allen comes in at 16th on SafeWise’s safe cities list, which brings it up eight spots since last year. This northern Dallas suburb in Collin County has a population just shy of 100,000 averages .83 violent crimes per 1,000 citizens, and 9.77 property crimes per 1,000 citizens.

5. Royse City

Spanning across Rockwall, Collin and Hunt counties, Royse City has a population of about 12,000, which has grown exponentially over the past 15 years. Royse City comes in at the 17th safest city on SafeWise’s 2017 list, down from #9 in 2016, with a roughly of 21 violent crimes and 119 property crimes in the past year.
