Flint Most Violent City Again, Governor’s Office Says ‘Unacceptably High’

WFNT/Governor Snyder

Flint had just under 2,800 violent crimes in 2012 making it once again the most violent city in the country according to the FBI. The numbers include 63 murders, 108 rapes, 673 robberies and almost 2,000 aggravated assaults (Mlive).

Governor Snyder’s spokeswoman Sara Wurfel said the crime in the city was “unacceptably high” and was the reason the governor committed resources to the city that included funds for reopening the Flint City Lockup, a greater presence by the Michigan State Police and development of a Summer Youth Employment program.

Flint, along with Detroit, Saginaw and Pontiac, is part of a focused effort to combat crime. The governor unveiled his plan in Flint in Spring 2012.
