The SafeWise Report Announces the 10 Safest Cities in Maryland
The SafeWise Report released its “10 Safest Cities in Maryland” 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 5,000 people.
They 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, they 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 Maryland, we narrowed the list down to 10 and assigned rankings according to data provided by the FBI’s UCR report.
“If you’re living in or visiting any of these towns, you have a less than four in 1,000 chance of becoming a victim of violent crime,” SafeWise security analyst Rebecca Edwards said. “Seeing modern communities pull together to make sure their children grow up safe is inspiring and a good model for other cities to follow.”
