Honolulu Singled Out for Lowest Crime Rate


Hawaii received some good news today. A study by Washington, D.C.-based Congressional Quarterly has ranked the city of Honolulu as having the lowest crime rate among cities with a population of more than 500,000 people. The study, conducted by CQ Press with statistics provided by the FBI, said that Detroit, Baltimore and Memphis had the highest crime rate rankings for cities of 500,000 or more.

“This is another testimonial as to why our city is a perfect destination for business and convention travel,” said Joe Davis, SMG general manager of the Hawaii Convention Center. “Our client’s safety is our greatest concern, as well as having a productive session and enjoying everything that our great city has to offer.”

The figures reflect crimes such as murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft.
