Best Home Security Companies in Alabama
According to USA.com, Alabama has higher rates of crime than the national average; however, it varies between types of crime. For example, violent crimes are about equal to the national average of 4 per 1,000 residents, but property crime rates are higher than average at 36 per 1,000 (national average is 29). Since Alabama is a sparsely populated state the number of crimes per square mile is less than half of the national average.
Alabama is known for being at the center of the civil rights movement through the middle of the 20th century. With events like the Montgomery Bus Boycott and marches led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., as well as being home to some of the largest KKK groups in the country Alabama is synonymous with race relations. Given the political climate and importance of the state in regards to civil rights it should be noted that Alabama’s hate crime index is vastly better than the national average, meaning it has a much lower number of hate crimes per capita.
