Jacksonville, Florida -- area code 904 -- has been the Sunshine State’s murder capital for the last 10 years.
The homicide rate in Jacksonville has consistently topped other major metropolitan areas across Florida, including Miami, Orlando, and Tampa.
The reasons for Jacksonville’s high crime rate are complex. Historic socioeconomic factors, long-standing racial inequalities, educational challenges and more lie at the heart of Jacksonville’s crime problem.
