Where do you think is the safest place to live in New Hampshire?

New Hampshire is one of the most beautiful states in our country. So, for me, it's hard to even imagine there being any dangerous spots in it. But, according to movoto.com there are towns in New Hampshire that have had higher crime than others. Now, this is after they conducted a real estate analysis and researching the FBI's Uniform Crime Report from 2012. By far, New Hampshire is one of the most safest states in America. In fact, not that many murders happen in the Granite state. Statistics show that the chances of getting murdered are 1 in 100,000. Phew, that's a relief. But, they did go ahead and calculate based on crimes per capita in each town and that is how they came up with the list. For the complete list, click here.   

Here are the 5 Most Dangerous towns in New Hampshire:

 

5. Claremont

This is due to the low population of only 13,000 people. There was one murder out of that number of people. Where as in Manchester for instance, their population is much higher. Also, the town comes in 5th due to property crimes.

 

4. Manchester

This city is larger with a population of about 110,000 people. Studies show there actually was a murder there and it has the highest per capita of violent crimes.
