Indiana City Named Second Safest City in America for 2024

The website, MoneyGeek, recently ranked the safest cities in America for 2024. How did they do that? Well, according to the website:

MoneyGeek’s annual analysis looks at the most recent crime statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to estimate the cost of crime in 302 cities with populations greater than 100,000 across the United States. The analysis pairs reported crime statistics with academic research on the societal costs of different types of crimes to estimate the cost of crime for each city.

The safest city in America for 2024 is Thousand Oaks, California. However, right behind that city on the list is Fishers, Indiana. That's right, Fishers is the second safest city in the entire country. Exciting and comforting news for residents of the city. The main data point used in the research is crime cost per capita. Fishers had a cost of $296.

However, that wasn't the only Indiana city to make the list. Carmel also rounded out the top 10 list for safest cities in America, with a crime cost per capita of $405. You can learn more about the safest and even the most dangerous cities in America for 2024 by clicking here.
