SafeWise Announces the 20 Safest Cities in Alabama
SafeWise just released its “20 Safest Cities in Alabama” report on June 4, 2018. To compile this report, we reviewed the 2016 FBI crime report statistics and population data. Cities that fell below identified population thresholds (4,377) or that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI were excluded from the ranking system.
Our evaluation is based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) in each city. If there was a tie, we also factored in the number of property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). To level the playing field, we calculated the rate of crimes per 1,000 people in each city. This makes it easier to directly compare the likelihood of these crimes occurring in cities with vastly different populations.
SafeWise Security Analyst Laura E. Hilton says, "Even though crime rates are on the rise in Alabama’s biggest cities, smaller towns are safer than ever."
