Study Finds Lansing Among Most Dangerous Cities in U.S.

A recent report done by Neighborhood Scout using FBI data shows Lansing is among the top 100 most dangerous cities in America.

The 2013 study found Lansing ranks 80th in the nation for dangerous crime. That's an improvement from 2012 when Lansing was ranked 70th.

Lansing isn't the only city in Michigan with poor rankings. There are eight Michigan cities in the top 100. Flint, Saginaw, Detroit and Inkster are in the top 10.

Coming up tonight on News Ten at 5 p.m. we'll look at what the city is doing to improve its ranking and whether or not people should be concerned by the findings.
