Sellersburg and Charlestown Make “Safest Cities” List

 

“Chief Executive” magazine recently surveyed more than 500 chief executives and asked them to evaluate states based on a number of business and livability related factors. Indiana ranked as the sixth best state to do business in and its high quality living environment was one reason why.

Indiana’s recent good news has people from across the country contemplating a move to the Hoosier state. If you’re one of them you’ll want to read on as we reveal the 50 safest cities to call home in Indiana.

Here’s how they complied the list. FBI Crime Report data from 2012  was used as the foundation for the report and compiled with data from SafeWise. Then the list was trimmed down to cities with a population of 5,000 or above.  The number of Violent Crimes, consisting of aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder, and robbery, as well as Property Crimes, consisting of arson, burglary, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft. were analyzed.

The FBI Crime Report is one of the most well respected sources for comprehensive crime statistics, however not all cities have reported complete data to the FBI and that could be why you don’t see your Indiana city on our list.
