You might think that you live in a safe neighborhood, but according to SafeHome.org, you are wrong.  Zero West Michigan cities made their list of the 101 Safest Cities in America list.

The list was made by using data from the FBI and analysing it to determine which cities in America have the least "violent crime and property crime rates".

9 Michigan cities made the list, with Rochester Hills being listed as the 6th safest city in America, but none of these cities were in West Michigan.  In fact, all of the cities were in Metro Detroit.

Here are the cities in Michigan that made the list.

  • Rochester Hills (#6)
  • West Bloomfield Township (#12)
  • Farmington Hills (#42)
  • Royal Oak (#42)
  • Shelby Township (#47)
  • Novi (#56)
  • Canton Township (#67)
  • St. Clair Shores (#84)
  • Sterling Heights (#98)

Do you agree that West Michigan is less safe than these 9 Metro Detroit cities?  Personally, I don't think so, but they do have some "data" to back up their claim.

But, the website Alarms.org did a similar survey two months ago and ranked the 25 safest cities in Michigan and a few West Michigan did make that list.
