Number of burglaries: 15,994
Detroit is the largest city in Michigan and the center of the U.S. automobile industry. Despite its reputation as a city in decline, crime has actually been steadily decreasing there since the 1970s.

Number of burglaries: 17,264
Los Angeles is the second most populous city in the U.S. and one of the most influential in the world.

Number of burglaries: 18,159
New York is the most populous city in the U.S. and one of the main cultural centers of the world.

Still, no city is immune, and New York was the site of 18,159 burglaries in 2011.
Number of burglaries: 18,666
According to the Census Bureau, the 2011 estimated population of Phoenix was approximately 1.5 million. Mirroring the trend across the nation, the city has seen a decline in its crime rate, particularly with respect to its once-epidemic rate of car theft. It experienced 18,666 burglaries in 2011.
