AdvisorSmith just published its latest report on the “Safest Cities in North Carolina.” From our research, we discovered the safest small, midsize, and large cities in North Carolina and several cities in the Charlotte metro area made the list.
Our study analyzed violent and property crimes from 17 large cities, 57 midsize cities, and 174 small cities. Crime scores were calculated for each city and the cities were ranked to find the safest places in North Carolina.
Here are some key findings from the study:
- In the Charlotte metro area, the safest large cities were Concord (#3), and Huntersville (#4).
