Like beauty, safety can be in the eye of the beholder. What's considered safe to some, may not be so safe to others. The team at Safewise used specific criteria to determine the 100 safest cities in America.

In addition to four Minnesota cities making the top-100 safest cities for 2024, one made the top-ten.

Safewise used FBI crime report statistics and population data. The FBI data is from 2022 (the most recent year for which complete data was available). Their rankings were based solely on per capita crime data; no other factors were included.

So once again, one person's 'safe' is another person's 'dangerous.'
