According to the website onlyinyourstate.com, Quincy is in the Top 13 Most Dangerous Illinois cities to live in. We would all like to think our little river town is quite, but there is a whole other side of Quincy that some would wish doesn't exists, the crime side. Data collected to determine the grade on the city per capita is overall crime, property crime, and violet crime

With murder, rapes, drugs, robbery and all other crimes Quincy not only made the list, but landed in the top five.

Here is the list of all 13 Most Dangerous Cities in Illinois

13 - Harvey: The City gets a D- Overall Crime Grade

12 - DeKalb: The City gets a D- Overall Crime Grade

11 - Rockford: The City gets a D+ Overall Crime Grade

10 - Springfield: The City gets a C- Overall Crime Grade

9 - Peoria: The City gets a C- Overall Crime Grade

8 - Kankakee: The City gets a D+ Overall Crime Grade

7 - Champaign: The City gets a D- Overall Crime Grade

6 - Carbondale: The City gets a D- Overall Crime Grade

5 - Alton: The City gets a D Overall Crime Grade

4 - Quincy: A crime happens every 5-hours and six minutes The City gets a C- Overall Crime Grade

3 - Chicago: The City gets a C- Overall Crime Grade

2 - Bloomington: The City gets a C+ Overall Crime Grade

1 - East St. Louis: The City gets a F Overall Crime Grade

Although this is not a list Quincy wants to be on, Quincy still is (in my opinion) one of the safest places to live and raise children in. There is always going to be crime, whether your in a big city like Chicago or a small town like Quincy crime is everywhere. All we can hope as a community is that crime goes down and get on a list that makes Quincy a more desirable place to want to visit.
