Auburn ranked one of Alabama's safest cities

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Auburn has once again been ranked as one of Alabama's safest cities.

Auburn was recently ranked No. 7 on the National Council for Home Safety and Security's (NCHSS) 2018 list of Safest Cities in Alabama.

Last year, Auburn landed at No. 20 on the list.

Rankings are based on the number of reported violent crimes and property crimes per 1,000 people.

The NCHSS compiled data from the most recent FBI Uniform Crime report and its own population data and internal research to rank Alabama cities. Cities with populations under 10,000 and those that fail to submit a complete crime report to the FBI are excluded.
