Fort Thomas Named Safest City in Kentucky

FTM file. 
Fort Thomas has been named the Safest City in Kentucky by the National Council for Home Safety and Security. 

With a population of 16,358, there has only been three violent crimes and 125 property crimes. 

To identify the safest cities in Kentucky, they reviewed the most recent FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics along with our own population data and internal research and eliminated any cities that failed to submit a complete crime report to the FBI and removed cities with populations under 5,000.

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%. 

This is an advertisement. 
Here's what they said about the Fort Thomas:

"The city of Fort Thomas is nestled along the Ohio River on the northern border of Kentucky, adjacent to Cincinnati. Their downtown has recently been renovated creating a booming business district. It’s a testament to the culture of the city, with cafes, bakeries, boutiques, barber shops, and breweries situated in a long row of colonial brick buildings. They call themselves the “City of Beautiful Homes” - confirmed as one wanders down the streets of stunning architecture and manicured lawns. It’s home to the Highland Country Club and the Midwest’s oldest invitational golf tournament, The Highlander. Last year only 3 violent crimes and 125 property crimes were reported. It’s a comfortable place to live and raise a family as their high school ranks in the top 550 for academics, and 2nd in the state for football wins."

Northern Kentucky did well on the whole. with five other cities joining Fort Thomas in the top 10. Those cities were: Independence #2, Highland Heights #4, Edgewood #5, Taylor Mill #7, Fort Mitchell #8.
