I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. This is a very interesting question. Except for Alexandria, VA, all of the cities you've named have violent crime rates higher than the national average for the USA, and higher than the average for their own states. I looked at violent crime only, not property crimes since you are concerned with safety, but property crimes follow the same trend in all the cities. Alexandria has a crime rate considerably lower than the USA average. So, from safest to most dangerous, here they are:

Alexandria,VA approx. 190 violent crimes per 100,000 people annually

Tampa,FL 575 per 100,000

Jacksonville, 625 per 1000,000

Columbus, OH 700 per 100,000

Orlando,FL 1,000 per 100,000
Houston,TX 1,000 per 100, 000

Pittsburgh - PA 9000 per 100,000
