The survey is based on FBI crime figures for 2012. They looked at several points of data for cities in Tennessee that have a population greater than 10,000 people. They looked at property crimes per capita such as burglaries, thefts and motor vehicle theft. They also looked at violent crimes per capita such as murders, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults, as well as the chances of being the victim of a crime.
Germantown was selected as the safest place in Tennessee.
