Detroit Security & Crime

The crime rate in Honolulu is considerably higher than the national average across all communities in America from the largest to the smallest, although at 52 crimes per one thousand residents, it is not among the communities with the very highest crime rate. The chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime in Honolulu is one in 19. Based on FBI crime data, Honolulu is not one of the safest communities in America. Relative to Hawaii, Honolulu has a crime rate that is higher than 50% of the state's cities and towns of all sizes.

However, compared to other communities of similar population size, Honolulu has a crime rate that is noticeably lower than the average. This means that for comparably sized cities all across America, Honolulu is actually safer than most according to FBI's crime data.

The chance that a person will become a victim of a violent crime in Honolulu – such as armed robbery, aggravated assault, rape or murder – is one in 303. This equates to a rate of three per one thousand inhabitants.

Honolulu's rate for property crime, however, is 49 per one thousand population. This makes Honolulu a place where there is an above average chance of becoming a victim of a property crime, when compared to all other communities in America of all population sizes. Property crimes are motor vehicle theft, arson, larceny, and burglary. Your chance of becoming a victim of any of these crimes in Honolulu is one in 20.

Hence, take particular care when parking vehicles in popular tourist spots, especially Diamond Head and the Halona Blowhole near Sandy Beach; always lock your vehicle; and do not leave any valuables in your car. Keep all valuables within sight and within reach at all times. Your car is not a safe place to store anything as thieves have commonly dismantled locks and broken into vehicles, or conversely will just bash open your window to get in.
