To identify the safest cities, NCHSS reviewed the most recent FBI crime report statistics, along with their own population data and internal research.
Any city that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and cities with populations under 10,000 were excluded.
The NCHSS cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) per 1,000 people.
