10 Safest Cities in Texas

BY SHANNON RATLIFF


Safety is arguably the most important factor when deciding where to lay down your roots if you’ve got a hankering to move. While no city is truly immune to crime, there are some precautions you can take in trying to narrow down your search. Luckily, we’ve done the hard number crunching for you. Here are the 10 safest cities in Texas.

To narrow down the safest cities in Texas, we started with the 2014 FBI Uniform Crime Report. Why the 2014 report, you may ask, when it’s 2016? Well, the FBI is typically one year behind the curve in number reporting to be sure that their reports are accurate. So from the 2014 report, we compiled a list of each city that has a population of over 20,000 residents or more. We then added together violent crime and property crime reported in order to find the total number of crime overall.

This total number of crime overall was divided by the total population of the city to find the crime rate. We also factored in the chance of crime happening to one person out of every one thousand people.
