Crime in Hudson?
« on: December 10, 2007, 04:25:27 pm »

Hello!
My husband and I are planning our move for Spring '09. We are thinking Nashua, but I was wondering about Hudson. Bestplaces.net lists the crime numbers as really high, and I don't know whether that is accurate. Seems odd to me. For anyone living in Hudson, is there a lot of crime? And how do you like it otherwise?
Thank you very much!

First I have heard of anything wrong with Hudson. I don't live there but it is nearby and seems ok to me. We have a number of "us" living there and maybe one of them will pipe up about it. It certainly is conveniently located.

yeah I can think of about 4-5 people in Hudson.

I once drove thru a neighborhood and saw 4 Ron Paul signs.

Hudson is very gun-friendly. I would be surprised if there was much in the way of home break-ins there!

Hudson is a nice community with very low crime.  Nashua doesn't have high crime, but it certainly has a higher rate of crime.

Thanks folks. Well apparently you can't trust bestplaces.net. Your attitudes are all so refreshing! People who understand that gun ownership can deflect crime! Honestly how can you criticize your government and its overreach of power and then insist on not being allowed to have a gun? Its shocking to me that anyone makes sense on this issue because we have so many very good, old friends in and around Boston (my husband was born in town) and they are in lockstep on so many goofy attitudes... we love them but they drive us nuts. Just like Boston itself. Which is why we're aiming for Southern NH rather than Northern, so we can go ahead and be driven nuts by the people we love and then... go home to America! (which is what we actually plan to say when we leave bars in Boston to go home, just to be ball-busters, hee hee)

I live in Hudson.  The police blotter in the weekly newspaper never seems very long . . .

I live near Londonderry and Litchfield in on the north side of Hudson.

Heh.

How can someone complain endlessly about all the government propaganda, lies about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, lies about everything else, …and then demand the government provide education to their children?

How can someone complain endlessly about how incompetent the government is, how they bungled the handling of the Katrina disaster, how slow and ineffective things like Medicare and Medicaid are, how they can’t do anything right, …and then demand the government provide health care for everyone?

It’s doublethink, and the statist subjects are marvelous at it. ;D

Seabrook has almost no crime, even for its small population.  I also noticed that you have ties to Boston.  It was previously thought that Nashua (where I lived previously, fairly high crime rate) offered the easiest commute into Boston.  However, the folks actually working in the Boston area have been mentioning a preference for 95, which leads one to the seacoast.

I am buying a house in Seabrook which offers easy access to eastern mass.  I've been told that the commute to Boston is about a half hour less each way from Seabrook, which first raised my interest there.  There will be three rooms open for rent at the end of February.

Nashua doesn't have fairly high crime.  I mean, maybe it is high for NH, but it is still not fairly high when you look at the USA as a whole.  Nashua is a low crime city and Hudson is even lower.  It does make sense that Seabrook would also have little crime, though. Truth be hold, almost all of NH has low crime when compared to the area outside of Northern New England.

According to City-Data.com

Crime in Nashua (2005):
2 murders (2.3 per 100,000)
20 rapes (22.7 per 100,000)
28 robberies (31.8 per 100,000)
114 assaults (129.4 per 100,000)
308 burglaries (349.6 per 100,000)
1,622 thefts (1840.8 per 100,000)
131 auto thefts (148.7 per 100,000)
City-data.com crime index = 168.1 (higher means more crime, US average = 312.7)


Crime in Nashua (2006):
1 murder (1.1 per 100,000)
21 rapes (24.0 per 100,000)
47 robberies (53.6 per 100,000)
121 assaults (138.0 per 100,000)
333 burglaries (379.9 per 100,000)
1,801 thefts (2054.7 per 100,000)
107 auto thefts (122.1 per 100,000)
City-data.com crime index = 183.7 (higher means more crime, US average = 309.6)

No, not by national standards, of course.  Then again, NH doesn't have as many pols in office deliberately trying to exacerbate the crime problem in order to push some other agenda.  I did, however, see both Nashua and Manch's crime levels increase.  It's something you have to get a feel for, because when police departments go downhill, a smaller percentage of the ongoing crimes are reported, and the increase seems smaller than it really is.  Many cops and politicians don't really like dealing with the crime problem and hate dealing with the general public.
