Comparing to Benchmark Cities

The City of Portland’s crime rate per 100,000 was 5,007 just slightly above the benchmark cities at 4,960 in 2010.

Crime Rates-Maine

In 2010, crime rates per 100,000 in both the City of Portland and the national benchmark cities were significantly above both the U.S. average and all other reference geographies. The Portland MSA crime rate (2,607), however, was significantly below the national benchmark regions.

Portland Maine Crime Index

Crime Index suggests the risk of certain types of crime occurring in Portland, Maine's largest community, as compared to the national average. The national average for each type of crime equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
