These Are The 10 Safest Places In ArizonaIf you're thinking about moving to Arizona, look no further than these 10 safest places in the state.
How We Did ItWe didn't earn a reputation as Saturday Night Scientists for simply coming up with lists off the tops of our heads; no, at Movoto, we rely on facts and figures. So in creating our safest cities lists, we went straight to the top to get our data: the FBI. In this case, we used the FBI's latest crime report for Arizona, 2012, and gathered the information for all of the places with a population of 10,000 or above. This left 42 places. From there, we looked at each place in terms of these three criteria:
- Violent crime (rape, murder, and assault)
- Property crime (theft, burglary, and motor vehicle thefts)
- The chance a resident will be a victim of crime
