When thinking about the most overall dangerous city in Texas, you would probably guess one of the biggest ones like Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas. We know that at one point and time, Odessa fell into the list of most dangerous cities and we do know that Odessa is listed as one of the most dangerous places after dark.

To determine the most dangerous cities in Texas, the FBI's data for violent crimes and property crimes per 100,000. The state of Texas had 438 violent crimes and 2,562 property crimes per 100,000 residents. The state has 224 police officers for every 100,000 residents.

Texas cities that made the overall most dangerous cities are Beaumont, Amarillo, Alamo,  Houston, Livingston, Palmview, Bastrop, Lubbock, and Humble.

The number one overall most dangerous city in Texas is Bellmead. Have you ever heard of it?

Bellmead is located just north of Waco in McLennan County. As of  202, Bellmead has a population of 10,575. According to Wikipedia,  The average income for a household in the city was $43,523, and the median income for a family was $34,511. The per capita income for the city was $16,910. Within the population, 65.7% have graduated from high school and nearly 11% of these people have completed a higher degree.

It's crazy to think the most dangerous city in Texas is such a small town especially when you think about the number two city, Beaumont, which has a population of 112,556. Growing up in a small town, one definitely doesn't think of other small towns as being dangerous. When you think about small towns, you think of a place where you can leave your doors locked and don't have to worry about walking down the street.

Bellmead is best known for its easy access to Waco and Baylor University and Texas State Technical College Waco and McLennan Community College.
