"We analyzed data from the FBI to statistically find out which cities are the safest in the nation. The FBI data is compiled from the information provided by 13,366 law enforcement agencies. We also used the Chapman University Survey of American Fears to highlight the crime rates of what Americans fear most, between violent crime and property crime rates."
