Safest Cities in Georgia

Thursday, February 13th, 2020

The National Council for Home Safety and Security released its annual report on the safest cities in each U.S. state. The Safest Cities Report examines each city’s per-capita crime data to provide state rankings and simultaneously features cities that have made strides to improve or sustain a safe environment for their residents.

Georgia, for example, saw a 7.4% decrease in violent crime and a 9.0% decrease in property crime since last year.

Millions of Americans relocate every year, and personal safety is one of the most important factors to consider when doing so. Unfortunately, many often rely on public opinion rather than objective data. The Safest Cities Report gives everyone a detailed safety analysis to evaluate before drawing any conclusions.

Findings are a result of combining data from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting tool (which relays cities’ violent and nonviolent crime data) with internal population research. Lastly, two small segments were discarded from the analysis: cities with populations under 10,000 and cities that chose not to submit complete crime reports to the FBI.
