From someone who grew up in The Woodlands, as well as my parents. I can assure you it is not the little bubble everybody thinks it is. The crime rate has only gotten worse, with murder and burglaries, as well as arsen... but over all The Woodlands is a lot safer than some of the places out there. I love it there. It is a great place to raise a family. From the amazing schools the 13 pools, and all of the parks. Bottom line is, crime happens everywhere, no matter where you live. There will always be criminals. You will never be able to escape it where ever you go..

Chris... thanks for your comment. Why is the woodlands keeping the incidents hush hush... would hate to have a false sense of security. I do not think they should be allowed to hide such information.... perhaps more funds needed to keep the place safer or add more lights... more patrols. And I want to see more honest reporting. Why are the 2 crimes at tiffany and thomas markle market street not reported here....

You guys should read the note on the bottom indicating what the numbers mean. Not how many cases of a specific crime but a comparison to the national average. Read and chill, woodlands is as safe as it gets nowadays :)

Your chances of being the victim of a violent crime in The Woodlands are 1 in 1116. However, most of those crimes are committed by people who know each other. Your chances of being the victim of a violent crime by a stranger are abysmally low. Check the Montgomery Co. crime stats.

How do you know there have been no rapes or murders happening in The Woodlands for the last 5 years? Are you kidding me? I can name off 4 of each right off the top of my head that happened within the last 2 years. Not to mention dozen of bank robberies and all the drugs that we have here. But it's all kept hush, hush so business doesn't take a hit. It's no better or worse than any other community, we just hide it better.

My ex was raped in the woodlands in 2010 says:
So was her roommate.
John, realized not all crimes get reported, and furthermore, that not all get handled by the police.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Woodlands, Texas is much safer than New York City.

They must be including areas around the Woodlands in these statistics. I know there have been no murders or rapes in the Woodlands in the last 5 years.

I think the crime score for the Woodlands is way over inflated. I don't know who conducted this survey but I am sure it is wrong. There have not been any murders or rapes in the Woodlands in the last 5 years I have lived here.

I think the Woodlands is much safer than these statistics indicate. I don't think there have been 52 murders in the Woodlands in the last 5 years if at all. I know there have not been 62 rapes in the Woodlands. The people in the Woodlands would be all over that. I have only heard of of one home invasion.

So I should feel less safe in The Woodlands than in New York city? Nonsense you have lived a sheltered life.

The referenced statistics are fabricated results as an index is irrelvant when compared within a major metropolitan area. The Houston comparison is ridiculous as the non-factual comparison indicated here is againtst a city of about 84,000 to a metro of several million. The fact is this: (Based on FBI statisitcs for "The Woodlands" only) In 2006 violnet crime was a 2 and non-violent crime a 1. In 2008 crime increased to 3 and 2, respectively. In 2010 the crime increased to 5 and 6, respectively. The USA average is 3. A 10 is maximum crime. Presently, even New York City has a better crime statistic that The Woodlands. The major reason for the increase si the highway expansions, e.g., 6 lanes going through the Parkway, 4 through Lake Woodlands, and 6 through Research Forest. Criminals can escape more readily as the data shows since 1970 from the Univ of Wisconsin. The resaon the crime statistics are fabricated is due to the Chamber of Commerce, The realtors and developers who realize real data will drive done business.
