These Are The 10 Safest Places In MissouriThinking about moving to the Show Me State? We'll show you the 10 safest places in Missouri, plus a few you might want to avoid.
How We Created This RankingIn order to come up with this list of the safest places in Missouri, we looked at the FBI’s crime statistics from 2012, the organization’s latest full report. We used the locations in the state with populations over 10,000 people, which left us with a total of 75 places. From there, we looked at each of these places in terms of 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
