Baton Rouge, New Orleans in top 40 cities for Police Spending ROI
Written by 

CRIME-SCENEBaton Rouge Louisiana is one of the best cities with ROI for police spending while New Orleans is not in that number, nor is it one of the worst.

The Louisiana capitol is ranked number 13 for best ROI;  New Orleans ranked 33rd.  Regardless, the two rankings put the Louisiana cities in the top 40.

These are findings from WalletHub which conducted an in-depth analysis of 2015’s Cities with the Best & Worst ROI on Police Spending

To assess how efficiently the 110 most populated U.S. cities spend taxpayer dollars on police protection, WalletHub calculated each city’s ROI on police spending based on crime rates and per-capita expenditures on police forces after normalizing the data by poverty rate, unemployment rate and median household income. It is important to underline the fact that efficiency is different from overall safety.
