Here Are The 10 Safest And Most Peaceful Towns To Live In Arizona
When people decide to move to a new town, one of their top criteria includes looking for safe locations. There’s lots of different criteria that can be found that will justify why certain towns and cities were designated as “safest.”
For this list, we’re going to look at data compiled by the FBI in 2013 to determine the safest towns and cities based on the crimes reported to police. (Completed 2014 data has not been released just yet.) We calculated the crime per resident ratio to come up with a slightly more accurate rate instead of just listing the lowest number of reported crimes.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
So, do you agree with the FBI’s finding? What cities do you think should have or, alternatively, should not have made the list? Let us know in the comments.
