The National Council for Home Safety and Security has released the list of the 50 safest cities in Oklahoma. Eliminated from the list were cities that failed to submit a crime report for the study. Also, cities under 5,000 in population were also not included.
The remaining cities were ranked based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) per 100,000 people.
These variables were then weighted, with violent crimes accounting for 70% of the total (due to their severity) and property crimes accounting for 30%.
After sorting through crime data, they came up with the top 50 safest cities in Oklahoma.
According to the National Council for Home Safety and Security, safest cities in Oklahoma in order are:
