The state of Maryland has a higher crime rate than the United States average. Violent crime rates in Maryland are also higher than the national average – by a whopping 83.17% -- and nonviolent crime rates in Maryland are also higher, but only by 32.72%. But the news isn't all bad. Crime rates in all categories have been dropping throughout the U.S. over the past decade, and Maryland has been a part of this trend as well, according to CityRating.com and MDSP.org.*
Furthermore, the burglary rate in Maryland was actually lower than the national average in 2009. However, there were 36,700 burglaries reported in Maryland in 2010, which averages out to just over 100 burglaries per day statewide.
