How Safe is Nashville?
Statistics for Nashville show that odds are 1 in every 20 people will be victims of robbery, which means odds are that you know or will meet someone who’s been robbed or had their home broken into—or worse—that you’ve been the victim before. We have a population of about 610,000 in Nashville, and there were 7,541 burglaries and 19,987 thefts reported by the Nashville and Davidson County Metropolitan Police Department in 2011. It turns out those statistics might be a little too rosy.
You’d think a number is a number, but if you look up crime statistics in Nashville, you’ll find a lot of conflicting information. Numbers vary, opinions and interpretations vary, and how those numbers even get reported has been called into question. News Channel 5 did an investigation not too long ago that led to a city audit exposing some misreporting (to help city police statistics) on crimes. In fact, if you type in “a look at crime stats” in your search engine, you’ll find that this isn’t just a problem here in Nashville—it’s an issue worldwide. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a city police department that doesn’t want to show that they’re performing successfully.
This makes it hard for us to know for sure what the reported numbers mean for us, but it’s safe to say that even if these statistics aren’t modest, they’re good cause for thinking about the security of your home and family.
