Fort Thomas Named "Safest City In Kentucky"

FTM file. 
Another website has listed Fort Thomas as the safest city in Kentucky. 

Background Checks compiled a list of the 15 safest cities in Kentucky, based on FBI crime stats and “proprietary” algorithms.

“Our list was compiled based on FBI violent crime stats and proprietary BackgroundChecks.org research data. Rates are normalized per 100,000 residents with the state average being 212 for violent crime and 2,247 for property crime. This is calculated by taking (# of crimes/population) *100,000.”

Here’s what they said about Fort Thomas.

This is an advertisement. 
Located in Campbell County, the city of Fort Thomas is home to 16,300 residents.  The community sits on the southern bank of the Ohio River and is considered a suburb of Cincinnati. The city is known for its quality schools and is the safest place to live in the state of Kentucky.  The violent crime rate in Fort Thomas is 42.6, and the chance of being affected by property crime here is just 1.4%.
