Most Secure American Cities

Farmers Insurance Group of Companies put out a study on the most secure cities and towns in America. Three hundred seventy-nine metro areas were judged on health, prosperity, safety and security.

The overall safest place to live is Corvallis, Oregon with its whopping population of 53,900 people. However, the study then proceeds to break down cities by size. The winners are
  • Largest: San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, California
  • Medium: Olympia, Washington
  • Smallest: Corvallis, Oregon

The West Coast and certainly California are well represented on the list. A not so surpring second is the western half of the Midwest (North Central). Cities like Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Ames, Iowa; and others are found on the list.
