The SafeWise Report - 50 Safest Cities in Ohio

The SafeWise Report released its “50 Safest Cities in Ohio” report this week. To compile this report, SafeWise used the most recent FBI crime data from 2013 to analyze and rank these cities, which all have a minimum population of 8,000 people.

“Ohio continues to shine as a state where neighbors work together to keep crime low,” SafeWise security analyst Rebecca Edwards said. “The cities on our list are shining examples of the difference community awareness, partnership with law enforcement, and civic pride can make.”
