Fiberglass lasts long, is low maintenance and very sturdy and energy efficient, but tends to cost more. Aluminum is a less popular choice all around.
Dayton, as with many places in the country, breakins are not a common occurance but there should not be just an assumption of safety when you can make improvements to how the windows in your home are used and how wide your old windows are left open.

Plus with new double hung windows, where the top sash operates up and down as well as the bottom, you can let air in from the top without creating a safety hazard since the night latches can be easily engaged to only open the windows part way.
