SafeWise Names Auburn One of 50 Safest Cities in Indiana

Posted by thowens on August 11, 2014

The SafeWise Report released its “50 Safest Cities in Indiana” report this month and Auburn made the list.

To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2012 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 5,000 people. The organization reviewed crimes from part 1 of the FBI Unified Crime Report (UCR) reported crime data, which focuses on violent crimes (aggravated assault, forcible rape, murder and robbery) as well as property crimes (arson, burglary, larceny-theft and motor vehicle theft). From there, Safewise calculated the likelihood of these crimes happening out of a thousand in order to level the playing field for cities of varying populations. The organization then narrowed the list down to 50 and assigned rankings according to data provided by the FBI’s UCR report.

“I discovered Indiana’s safe cities are quite diverse but do share a few key characteristics that make them stand out,” SafeWise security analyst Alexia Chianis said. “They all have a strong sense of community pride, impressive public safety initiatives and top-notch municipal services.”
