ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Safewise, the home security company, has gathered FBI crime statistics, and compiled a list of the towns in Georgia that they consider the 'safest.'
Monday, the company has issued a ranking recognizing the fifty safest cities in Georgia.
These municipalities reported fewer than forty total violent and property crimes per 1,000 people, according to the 2015 FBI crime data.
Georgia's crime rate may be slightly higher than the national average, however, 58% of Georgia's safest cities have lower property crime rates.
Almost nine of ten reported lower violent crime rates than the national average. There were zero murders in the 33 safest cities.
