Sioux Falls is near the top of the list of '25 cities where crime is soaring'.

The website, 24/7 Wall Street, reviewed FBI data for nearly 200 cities nationwide to identify areas where crime is soaring.

Sioux Falls ranks number two on the list right behind Monroe, Louisiana.

The report finds that violent crime has ticked up in Sioux Falls nearly every year in the last five years resulting in an 80 percent overall surge in the city.

A report released by South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley last week shows violent crime actually went down statewide last year, but drug crimes rose more than seven percent.
