How? To compile this report, SafeWise analysts reviewed the most recent 2016 FBI crime statistics and population data. Our evaluation is based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape and robbery) in each city per 1000 people. If there was a tie, we also factored in the number of property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and car theft).

Cities that fell below identified population thresholds or failed to submit a complete FBI crime report were excluded from the ranking system.

Who is SafeWise? SafeWise is an online safety resource that advocates for consumers and helps families and communities make informed decisions. Our mission is to provide helpful reviews, insightful tips, comprehensive resources, and valuable safety information in one convenient place. SafeWise regularly releases “Safest Cities” reports, and other reports on a variety of safety topics to raise awareness about the state of safety in our country.

Quote: SafeWise security analyst Alexia Chianis says, “Indiana’s twenty safest cities vary considerably in size and location, but they’re all working hard to keep crime under control. The cities on our list experienced an average violent crime rate nearly 85% lower than the state, according to the most recent FBI crime report. We were also impressed that cities which didn’t make our list, like Indianapolis, are leveraging new initiatives such as OneCOP to help improve police-citizen communication and reduce crime.”
