Top 10 Safest Cities in America

Seven of the 10 are located on East Coast

Morgan Quitno Press recently published its 13th annual rankings of the safest and the most dangerous cities in America.

The list, according to Morgan Quitno’s website “is based on a city’s rate for six basic crime categories: murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary and motor vehicle theft. All cities of 75,000+ populations that reported crime data to the FBI for the six crime categories were included in the rankings.”

This year’s survey considered 371 cities, using final 2005 FBI statistics that were released Sept. 18, 2006. Last week we brought you the Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities in America. Here are the 10 safest.
