A study by Maclean's ranked Canadian towns and cities by most dangerous to live in.
Out of 229 assessed areas, Morinville came in at 87th.
"I know our RCMP detachment is always working on reducing crime," said Morinville councillor Stephen Dafoe. "Our most severe, as it is with most communities, is the property crime and I know they're constantly working on that."
In the break and enter category, Morinville landed in 81st with 46 incidents, slightly above the national average.
Other concerning issues for the town are assault cases, the sexual assault rate, youth crime and fraud.
"It takes one group or one person who's going around and doing this to skew numbers severely," added Dafoe.
Morinville was below the national average for robberies, impaired driving and drug-related charges.
Fort Saskatchewan was ranked 62nd.
