Perhaps as expected, Anchorage’s violent crime rate is the highest in the state, across communities of all sizes. [See: Most Dangerous States in America] As many as 2,605 offenses were committed in the city of 301,306 people and they included rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, robbery, and aggravated assault. Burglary and larceny-theft are in the thousands. There were 81 arson attacks reported, more than anywhere else in Alaska. The second highest number was 15 – in Juneau.
