Safest Cities in Michigan

Detroit Struggles To Re-Build A Bankrupt City Amidst Poverty And Blight

Do you live in one of the safest cities in Michigan, well let’s find out.

First let’s look at the state as a whole.  The state of Michigan ranks 11th with the lowest property crime rate and 35th for violent crime in the United States according to a new report just released

A group called Safewise, who states they are the authority on safety and home security news just came out with a report stating Michigan’s ranking within the United States and the top 20 safest cities in Michigan.

How did Safewise choose the Safest Cities in Michigan?  They reviewed the most recent FBI Crime Report statistics from 2015, along with population data.  They choose to not include cities with fewer than 5,000 residents as well as any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI. Sounds reasonable to me.

They then narrowed their search based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) in each city.

Is your city ranked in the top twenty safest cities in Michigan, well here they are:
