Safewise, a website dedicated to safety and security tips and advice, has put together their list of The 20 Safest Cities in Indiana – 2017. As it turns out, Evansville did not make the list of safest cities. According to Safewise:
We narrowed the list down 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) in each city. To level the playing field, we calculated the likelihood of these crimes occurring out of 1,000 people in each city.
They also used statistics from the 2015 FBI Crime Report. What did all of that data added up to for Evansville? We ranked #92 out of 97. Fort Wayne and Gary, Indiana both ranked higher than Evansville as safer places to live. They are numbers 54 & 83 respectively. Seriously?? Fort Wayne and Gary are safer than Evansville?
