The "SafeWise" Report was released this week ranking the safest 100 cities across the state. 

Utilizing the most recent FBI statistics from 2014, the report evaluated all cities over 3,500 residents. 

"From there, we evaluated the remaining cities. We narrowed it down 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) in each city. To further level the playing field, we calculated the likelihood of these crimes occurring out of 1,000 people in each city." 

Freedom saw its rank increase by five spots, from 8th to 3rd.
