Census 2015 Demographic Profile HighlightsHistory
In Kansas, honesty, hard work, and
strong values are the norm—not the
exception—which could be why - Kansas
boasts dozens of impressively safe
communities. In fact, according to the
most recent FBI
crime report in 2015,
the average crime rate of the state’s
twenty safest cities was nearly half the
To identify the 20 safest cities in Kansas, Safewise reviewed
the most recent FBI Crime Report statistics from 2015, along
with population data. Safewise eliminated all cities with fewer
than 4,000 residents as well as any cities that failed to submit
a complete crime report to the FBI.
From there, Safewise evaluated the remaining cities. They
narrowed it down based on the number of reported violent crimes
(aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property
crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft)
in each city. To further level the playing field, Safewise
calculated the likelihood of these crimes occurring out of 1,000
people in each city.
