The crime rate in Moscow is considerably higher than the national average across all communities in America from the largest to the smallest, although at 18 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 Moscow is 1 in 57. Based on FBI crime data, Moscow is not one of the safest communities in America. Relative to Pennsylvania, Moscow has a crime rate that is higher than 81% of the state's cities and towns of all sizes.

Importantly, when you compare Moscow to other communities of similar population, then Moscow crime rate (violent and property crimes combined) is quite a bit higher than average. Regardless of how Moscow does relative to all communities in America of all sizes, when NeighborhoodScout compared it to communities of similar population size, its crime rate per thousand residents stands out as higher than most.

Now let us turn to take a look at how Moscow does for violent crimes specifically, and then how it does for property crimes. This is important because the overall crime rate can be further illuminated by understanding if violent crime or property crimes (or both) are the major contributors to the general rate of crime in Moscow.

For Moscow, we found that the violent crime rate is one of the highest in the nation, across communities of all sizes (both large and small). Violent offenses tracked included rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated assault, including assault with a deadly weapon. According to NeighborhoodScout's analysis of FBI reported crime data, your chance of becoming a victim of one of these crimes in Moscow is one in 107.

NeighborhoodScout's analysis of property crime reveals that the property crime rate in Moscow is below average to all cities and towns in the nation. This means that you are less likely to become a victim of arson, motor vehicle theft, larceny, or burglary in Moscow than in most communities in America. Your chance of becoming a victim of property crime if you live here? Just one in 120.
