TheSafeWise Report Announces the 50 Safest Cities in Missouri

The SafeWise Report released its “50 Safest Cities in Missouri” report this week. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2012 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 4,000 people.

We look at crimes from part 1 of the FBI Unified Crime Report (UCR) reported crime data, which focuses on violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery) as well as property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft). From there, we calculate the chances of these crimes happening out of a thousand in order to level the playing field for cities of varying populations. From all the cities in Missouri, we narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to data provided by the FBI’s UCR report.

These civic-minded communities look out for one another,” SafeWise security analyst Rebecca Edwards said. “With only seven of our top 50 cities having more than a two in 1,000 chance of becoming a victim of violent crime there’s no arguing that these civic-minded communities know how to take care of their home.”
