Oklahoma Ranks Low in Citizen Safety
Oklahoma is one of the least safe states according to a new study, ranking behind only Louisiana and Mississippi. Oklahoma is the third least safe state in America in 2017, according to the report from WalletHub. Analyst Jill Gonzalez says areas studied ranged from assaults per capita to total loss from climate disasters. When population is considered, Oklahoma ranked too high in murders, manslaughters, assaults, and loss from climate disasters. Gonzalez says the state could use more law enforcement officers to deal with the safety issues.
Oklahoma also ranked high in fatal work injuries and fatal vehicle collisions per capita.
