To determine the most peaceful towns in America, We looked at research by the awesome folks at Safewise regarding the violent and property crime rates in every town in the United States, and also referenced data collected by NeighborhoodScout and ADT Security. The two main statistics compared in this list are the rates of violent crime (murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault), and property crime (burglary, larceny/theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson).

There is a lot of data out there regarding the safety of different cities, and each organization compiles its information a little differently. We’ve tried to include the most peaceful places to live with populations between 6,000 and 20,000 people (there are a few exceptions), and focused on towns with active community programs in place to keep everything safe and peaceful. These are all great places to live with your family when you want that nice relaxed feeling that comes with knowing you’re in a truly safe place with your loved ones.

Please note that we know there are plenty of absolutely lovely, safe communities all across the country. This list includes peaceful towns specifically highlighted by established studies on public safety and crime rates. We would love to know which ones are your personal favorites. Check them out:
