Crime in Arlington

Arlington has a crime index of 44, making it 44% safer than other cities in the United States. It has one of the highest percentages of bachelor’s and/or graduate/professional degree holders in the Washington Metro area, and boasts an above 90% ascension rate of all high school graduates to a college or university.

Arlington is the second most densely populated county in the state, after Alexandria. The county has seen growth in population over the last decade, with families more motivated to raise their children in the county’s education system. A dense population increases the likelihood of involvement in a crime, whether as a victim or as a perpetrator. Crimes aren’t always committed by criminals, though. A fun night out with friends could abruptly end with a bar fight and an assault charge, or any other number of criminal offenses.
