Crime City Trivia: Cleveland, Ohio has one of the highest crime rates in the United States

Though third lowest on our list for aggravated assaults, Cleveland is still a seriously dangerous city, largely due to crack cocaine and gang violence which led crime to skyrocket in the 1980’s. To combat the rise, Cleveland successfully implemented policies such as removing gang-related graffiti and telling news stations not to report gang names. Showing the relation between unemployment and crime, a 2004 study found the highest rates of crime (especially economic crimes) associated with areas having the lowest access to jobs.
