HomeSnacks Ranks Dyer #9 in Safest Places In Indiana

HomeSnacks released its ”Safest places to live in the Hoosier State" report this week. To compile this report, HomeSnacks looked at the hard numbers from the FBI's most recent report of crime (2014). Specifically, they analyzed the FBI's Uniform Crime Report which summarizes the number of property crimes and violent crimes in each city per year which all have a minimum population of 5,000 people. They used three criteria:

  • Violent crimes per capita (murders, assaults, rapes, armed robberies)
