Earlier this week I blogged about the most violent cities in Michigan (and yes, Battle Creek and Kalamazoo made the list); now for some good news!

Here are the Top 10 safest cities in Michigan! First though, I thought I would show how Mlive  got this information...

"The FBI tabulates property and violent crime stats from more than 9,500 participating police agencies across the nation and releases a Uniform Crime Report of the cumulative data annually, usually in September."

Here we go...

#10 Ann Arbor

#9 Canton Township

#8 Livonia

#7 Royal Oak

#6 Shelby Township

#5 Farmington Hills

#4 Waterford Township

#3 Novi

#2 West Bloomfield

And the #1 Safest City in Michigan is (drum roll please)...


Even through our beautiful cities did not make the list, I am proud to call West Michigan my home! And, at least we are not the Motor City, as Mlive reports...

"Detroit,  Michigan most violent city and the second most violent in the nation, recorded about 994 violent crimes per 50,000 residents in 2015."
