Though it is America's most violent city with a population of more than 200,000 for the third year in a row, according to Law Street, Detroit residents can perhaps take some small comfort in knowing that violent crime again experienced a slight decrease in 2014, declining by 4 percent. The numbers of murders, rapes and robberies fell, with murders falling to the lowest point in 47 years. However, the number of reported aggravated assaults climbed by about 4.5 percent.
