There are some great towns and cities to live in the state, and many times in those same towns and cities that rank high on the list to live in, there are certain drawbacks that can give an area a bad reputation.

This list of the most dangerous places to be in Connecticut after dark was basically compiled with stats using FBI Crime Reports and Connecticut Uniform Crime Reporting, provided by the Connecticut Department of Public Safety. The town or cities crime rate was a big part to determine which places were the least safe and that included three important metrics, annual violent crime, and annual property crime, all measured with the town or cities population in mind as well.
