Safest Places in America

Safewise.com analyzed FBI crime statistics from all 50 states and then combined that with their own research on each city's public safety, public health, and educational offerings. They came up with a list of 100 communities, to each of which they offer a downloadable badge that real estate pros and residents can use to show off their pride.

Here are the top ten; check out the link below to see the full list.
