Here Are the 10 Safest And Most Peaceful Places To Live In Kentucky

Kentucky has some beautiful land with flourishing cities, and knowing your community of choice is a good idea. You can move with confidence, appreciating the security of knowing your family is in a safe neighborhood. The FBI, unbeknownst to some, creates a list of reported crimes in each state organized by city. This data is often utilized by those in real estate, but it can also give us incredible insight into the type of community we might move into.

There are actually some cities in the Bluegrass that have very little or no crime at all. However, the list below is based on 10,000+ residents in the city/town versus the FBI’s number of reported crimes committed in 2013, including robbery, rape, arson, murder, property crime, larceny, and auto theft. With those figures, here are the 10 safest cities in Kentucky based on the population:

Home is where the heart is, and Kentucky, along with its people, has a lot of heart. If you are thinking of making a move to the Bluegrass State, evaluate the community.  Visit some of the local diners, shops, and chat with the locals. You will find friendly people ready to chat about the beauty of the land, in most cases.  Please do not misinterpret, there are plenty of other safe places to live all across the state that are NOT listed. If you have a favorite town you’d consider safe and secure, please add it in comments.

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky. I love writing, art, sunshine, all animals and my incredibly patient husband, who tolerates my "crazy animal lady" side.
