What they say...
The Buckeye State is the 7th largest state in the U.S. in terms of population. Home to 11.6 million residents, Ohio is considered a midwestern state and gets its name from the Ohio River that runs along its southern border. Several major cities are located in Ohio, including Columbus, Cleveland, and Cincinnati. If you’d like to make this thriving state your home, we’re detailing the 50 safest cities in Ohio.
Our list was compiled based on FBI violent crime stats and propriety BackgroundChecks.org research data. Rates are normalized per 100,000 residents with the state average being 285 for violent crime and 2,799 for property crime. This is calculated by taking (# of crimes/population) * 100,000.
The largest city in Greene County, Beavercreek is home to 45,100 residents. Considered a suburb of Dayton, the city is a bedroom community for many who work at nearby Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and has a long list of amenities. Beavercreek is a safe place to call home, with a violent crime rate of 54.9, and the chance of being affected by property crime here just 2.3%.
What we say...
There are 251 incorporated cities, 681 villages and 1,309 townships in the State of Ohio - ALL of which appear to be referenced in their list. Of the Top 50 Safest Cities referenced:
- Beavercreek was the #1 MOST populus city at 45,100
- 66% (33) of the cities listed are under 20,000 in population
- 50% (25) of the cities listed are under 15,000 in population
Factor into that the number of people attracted by:
- Our two full-sized malls
- Numerous bars
- Shopping centers
- Public amenities and more!
I'm sure the other 49 cities on the list are nice places to live, but it's not quite according to Hoyle, in my humble opinion, to compare Mayberry to Mount Pilot. There is a lot going on in our 49.3 square miles and we do a great job of keeping things on the level. A big thank you to not only the Beavercreek Police Department for taking care of the city, but also the Greene County Sheriff for their efforts in the Township!
Both the City of Beavercreek and Beavercreek Township are wonderful places to raise a family and to live your life to its fullest. Get out and enjoy them!
