How safe is your city? 

Movoto Real Estate, a real estate blog, put together a list of what it believes are the top 10 safest places in Georgia.

To rank the cities, Movoto compared data from the 2012 FBI Uniform Crime Report and divided it into four categories: murders, violent crimes, property crimes and total crimes.  They then ranked each city in each category from one to 73, with scores of one being the safest.

Here's the list: 

  1. City of Johns Creek
  2. City of Acworth
  3. City of Canton
  4. City of Kennesaw
  5. City of Grovetown
